The longest-running baseball website?

Mental Floss, which is either the upscale Buzzfeed or the poor man's Boing Boing, recently published a listicle (I use the term with affection) of "17 Ancient Abandoned Websites That Still Work." Among the cyber relics are the pages for Three Rivers Stadium, which was imploded a dozen years ago, and USA Today's "Fantasy baseball home page" as it appeared in 1996.

Even if you shelled out good money for a top-flight browser like Netscape Navigator, surfing the information superhighway back then was no easy task. Websites had to constantly remind users they were on the home page. But if you ever got lost or confused, you could always refer to the site map or complain in the guest book. Either way was good for the hit counter.

Anyway, you can see John Hunt's projections for long-forgotten players like ... Quilvio Veras, who I haven't thought about since Greg Gohr struck out Tony Tarasco that one time. They even have winter ball stats. It's no Space Jam, but as a website, it holds up pretty well.
