Chat with John Thorn

Auto Update: Off

Welcome to SportsNation! On Wednesday, author, and official Major League Baseball historian, John Thorn stops by to chat about his newest book "Baseball in the Garden of Eden."

In addition to authoring several books, Thorn has also worked with Ken Burns on his "Baseball" documentary, while also discovering the documentation that traced the origins of baseball to Pittsfield, Mass.

Thorn was also recently named by Bud Selig as MLB's official historian. And, in his first act in his new role, Thorn will be the chairman of the Baseball Origins Committee. The committee is made up of 12 experts and historians that will seek to determine the facts of baseball's beginnings and its evolution. Following the study, they will seek to tell the full story of the game as well as its development in local communities.

Send your questions now and join Thorn Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET!
