-about me.

My name is Duane Harris and I love Baseball. I love playing it, watching it, reading about it, and talking about it. I’m a life-long fan of the San Diego Padres and Oakland A’s who comes from a family of Padres fans that go back to their days as a team in the old Pacific Coast League. I’m originally from San Diego and I currently live in San Francisco, so I’m in “enemy territory” as of sorts in regards to my allegiance to my favorite teams. I’m quite ok with this though due to the fact that I love the city of San Francisco and the Bay Area’s rich baseball history and community. While I’m a fan of both the Padres and A’s and make no bones about it, the site is FAR from just fan content. Truthfully, you may not even catch on to who I root for while reading the blog as my interest in Baseball focuses more on the documentation and incredible history of the game.

When I decided to create the blog, I knew it would have to be something  that I would personally read and find interesting myself and I believe I have done just that. In a nutshell, Ninety Feet of Perfection is a blog with nothing but Baseball content: photos, video, interviews, movie & book reviews, and my thoughts on anything related to the game that I find worth sharing.

Hopefully you enjoy what I’m doing here and if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions feel free to shoot me an email.

  1. Looking at the Rose v. Bochy collision at home plate in the 1980 NLCS it’s uncanny how much it resembles the Cousins v. Posey collision last month at AT&T park last month in San Francisco.

  6. Duane, Do you know what article Smith wrote where those words are quoted? 90 feet to perfection? Where can I find it?

    • Robert,

      I am not entirely sure where the quote originates from? All I know is that Red Smith was an American sportswriter and I own a few books with his quotes in them. The actual quote is below, I just did my own little take on it for the blog’s title:

      “The ninety feet between home plate and first base may be the closest man has ever come to perfection”

  7. Wonderful site, I just found it image searching for a new wallpaper. It was a link that showed Lou Gehrig playing first in 1937 with the green monster in the background.

    Just an hour of trolling around and your catalog of Yankee classic images will keep me coming back…. but man the photo of Joe DiMaggio in the A’s uniform is hard to swallow!

  11. Thanks for continuing to provide a great blog. I try to keep up with all your posts in my reader and sometimes think I should thank you but never do… now I am, Thank you. As a big fan of the history of the game as much as the current league it really is a service that you are doing organizing these rarely seen photos.
    As for who I think you might root for, has to be New York.

    Go Yanks.

  12. After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and from now on every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.
    There has to be an easy method you can remove me from
    that service? Cheers!
