About Us

August Publications is a family-owned business headquartered near Madison, WI. The company was founded as a web-publishing firm with the launch of Ballpark Digest in 2002. It was a basic site with some ballpark listings, but soon grew in popularity and became the cornerstone of a publishing firm. That success led to more websites, including:

Arena Digest covers the lively arena scene, including plans for future construction and the state of the art in arenas both small and large.
Spring Training Online is the definitive guide to baseball’s spring season, the annual rite of passage where hope runs high and everyone’s a potential MVP.
Yellowstone Insider is the complete guide to America’s first National Park and one of the most unique spots on the globe.
When we first entered the book field in 2006, we published a small, modest guide to spring training that we sold directly to fans. Inquiries from book sellers led us to expand distribution to bookstores and distributors. We now carry a well-curated list of titles, including two distinctive imprints: LineUp Books and New West Books.
