William “Brody” Brotman has created an amazing new Ultimate History site that let’s you pick what you want to see. It’s a technical marvel. It has most of the history in my retiring site, and he has promised it will grow and mature.
So please now use this new URL for all of your ultimate history questions:
I loved being the ultimate historian and keeping in touch with so many ultimate players. You are the best people I know, and the sport is the best I’ve ever watched. Keep the camaraderie, culture and drive to win for only winning’s sake started by Tom “TK” Kennedy way back in 1978 when he started the UPA.
The hardback “ULTIMATE—The First Five Decades, Vol. II” is now available to order here:
Maintaining the history on this website was a true labor of love…
I’ve never played ultimate. My wife and I first saw a game in 1993 when our son, Jason Seidler, started playing at UCSB. We quickly became avid fans attending many college and club Regionals, Nationals and Worlds through 2004, and now attending Masters Championships. Along the way, I became dedicated to documenting the history of the sport and the great athletes who play it.
