The Team

GREGORY “Smash 'em” BASSHAM is Director of the Center for Ethics and Public Life and Chair of the Philosophy Department at King's College, Pennsylvania. He is the co-editor of The Lord of the Rings and Philosophy: One Book to Rule Them All (Open Court, 2003), the author of Original Intent and the Constitution: A Philosophical Study (Rowman and Littlefield, 1992), and the co-author of Critical Thinking: A Student's Introduction (McGraw-Hill, 2002). Greg's lifetime wiffle ball statistics are posted on his website.

JAY “Whiz Kid” BENNETT is a Principal Scientist with Telcordia Technologies. He is the editor of Statistics in Sport (Arnold, 1998) and co-author of Curve Ball (Copernicus, 2001). Jay is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association and a past Chair of its Section on Statistics in Sports. Born in Philadelphia the day after the Phillies won their first pennant in thirty-five years, he endured thirty years more before being rewarded with another; it was worth the wait.

MICHAEL “OH Ichiro” BRANNIGAN is Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Philosophy Department at La Roche College in Pittsburgh. He is also Executive Director of the college's Institute for Cross-Cultural Ethics. In between innings, he has written his politically correct share of articles and books on Asian philosophy and medical ethics and has been awarded international fellowships. He is now working on a book on ethics across cultures and another on global biotechnologies. With Japanese and Irish roots, he remains loyal to the Red Sox. This somewhat explains his interest in Custeriana as well as his nickname, a near-homonym lor the Japanese mo ichido (“one more time”).

ERIC “Shoeless” BRONSON heads the Philosophy and History Department at Berkeley College in New York City. He edited The Lord of the Rings and Philosophy: One Book to Rule Them All (Open Court, 2003) with Gregory Bassham, and has been a regular contributor to the Philosophy and Popular Culture series. He also produced the award winning documentary My Lazy White Friends, and wrote the short film Ruckus! with Dean Ishida (Farouche Films, 2004). Eric was the commissioner of Rabstick Park (1986–1989), and was the first person in recorded history to break his nose in a wiffle ball game.
