What I do.
Kelley Franco Throop is an attorney who vlogs, lectures, tweets, and writes about baseball. She especially enjoys breaking down baseball for casual fans.
Through her Twitter handle, @threeinningfan, Kelley regularly tweets out her “Three Inning Minute,” a brief 1–2-minute video that explains some aspect of baseball that serious fans may not know about and that casual fans can enjoy. It may focus on a transactional or legal aspect of the game, it may be nostalgic, or it could be an opinion on the ever-changing rules of the game.
Kelley also lectures on baseball.
Baseball 101™ is a class on baseball, designed by Kelley that teaches the novice fan the rules of the game, the structure of Major League Baseball, and 10 pieces of baseball history every fan should know. She presented Baseball 101 at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, among other venues.
A Whole New Ballgame: 10 Ways That Baseball Has Changed Since We Were Kids
Kelley has also designed the lecture “A Whole New Ballgame: 10 Ways That Baseball Has Changed Since We Were Kids”. In this upbeat and entertaining lecture, guests are treated to a discussion of how baseball has changed since our youth – whenever that youth may have been. Kelley discusses how the game has evolved and covers topics such as playoff expansion, the designated hitter, and the impact of analytics on how teams are built and the game is played. Both casual and serious baseball fans enjoy this engaging presentation.
