I want to subscribe to a baseball magazine. I'm not looking for something with breakdowns of the games, but for something with articles about history, players, prospects, ect.

Can anyone recommend one?

Prospects would be Baseball America.

Looking for one that encompasses all these aspects not just one. Or the one that comes the closest.

I recommend and subscribe to USA Today Sports Weekly. They only cover baseball and football.

Baseball America is a bore, unless you're into how the East BFE Coondawgs did in Class A ball and who the best middle school players are that might play in the majors in 15 years.

Sports Illustrated is a waste of paper, as is ESPN Magazine.

Years ago the Sporting News was great for a baseball fan. I'm not sure anymore. I haven't seen one in a long time. But I know that over the years they began to branch out and cover all sports (that's when they lost me a subscriber). Back in the day, it was only a baseball rag and great because they covered every game, every team and pretty extensive minor league coverage.
I dunno, you might wanna check it out.

The Sporting News is a joke. They try to cover baseball, football, hockey and basketball, as well as college football and basketball, and don't do that good a job at anything.

I remember the old days, when I subscribed to the "Bible of Baseball" and the Sporting News was 100% baseball 52 weeks a year. Since the Spink family sold it, it's turned to half-assed crap.

As far as I have found, USA Today Sports Weekly is the closest thing on the market today to the old Sporting News. Plus they cover the NFL.
