Okay, so out of curiosity, I did some googling as to whether anybody else had written about the bad-but-interesting tale of Rockets Rigby and baseball in the year 2044. They hadn’t. At least, not as of this morning.
I did, however, find a bibliography for Mr. Jim Moore, and listed is a story entitled “The Good New Days” from Super Sports in March 1953. The site notes that it is a Rockets Rigby story about “21st century football”.
Wait, there were more Rockets Rigby stories, and he was a multi-sport athlete? My far-overdone analysis of “Rockets on the Mound” is already the most popular post in the Continuum’s admittedly young history, so obviously there is some interest in it. So, to paraphrase Andy Samberg as Nicholas Cage: “HOW AM I NOT BLOGGING ABOUT THESE STORIES!?!?”
The reason, of course, is that they aren’t available online like “Rockets on the Mound” is. Or are they? If you know where more of Jim Moore’s sci-fi sports stories can be found, let me know.
