The Complete Apba Innings/table Sports Scoreboard On Cd For Sale
The APBA Innings was an independent monthly periodical devoted exclusively to APBA sports game content. Its first issue was published in mimeograph form by John Brodak in October 1969. Beginning in November 1970 with its second year of publication, it established itself as a rival to the APBA Journal by carving out a unique niche; rather than focusing exclusively on APBA's baseball game as the Journal did at that time, APBA Innings extended its coverage to include APBA's football, basketball, golf, and saddle racing games as well. Three months later, and after publisher Brodak established a partnership with Jack Kohn* as managing editor, the Innings added a splash of color to its large format printed pages to become the most attractive APBA magazine ever published. Although Brodak eventually resigned from the Innings to pursue other interests, Kohn continued to carry the torch, eventually adding coverage of non-APBA games and renaming the publication "Table Sports Scoreboard." Sadly, APBA Innings/Table Sports Scoreboard ceased publication after its August 1974 issue. The Innings' impact was felt long after its demise, however. The APBA Journal eventually expanded its coverage to include the Game Co.'s other sports offerings, and several contributors who got their start with the Innings had long-running columns in the Journal.
