This site manages to inform while being truly captivating at the same time. Not an easy task. Beautifully done and executed.
Huge attention to detail also, I'm a fan.
Wow, this is fantastic! A great example of using texture and grit in modern web design. And the menu icon is amazing!
Anyone know who made the site?

These guys always do outstanding work
I don't know how many of you use Dragdis, but going to their site and opening the chrome extension for Dragdis (to bookmark the website) IT TOTALLY GETS WILD. Spinning. Changing colors. Impossible to click on anything. Haha. Could be intentional, who knows. I just thought it was interesting.
Not bad. I especially love the main page you land on. Kind of reminds me of a lot the stuff Second Story and Terra Incognita used to do. Certain sections and action feel really laggy though to me... especially when you're browsing the players.
The overall design of the site is stellar and quite impressive. However, I am having some serious usability and performance issues (especially with scrolling) that make me cringe as I browse the site.
I sincerely dislike it when any of my inputs get delayed for whatever reason that may be. If I scroll and then scroll again, I want it to scroll twice. Not once. And then maybe again once.
This is not just a personal opinion type thing either. It's easily explained: there's no hard indication of when you can scroll again so you have to guess. Don't make your users have to guess!
That said, sure, it looks great.
Love the grain effect here: http://thestlbrowns.com/#/history/the-bill-veeck-era.
Very nice attention to detail and a consistent design sense I don't see as often as I used to. I think the design fits the site's (supposed) mission well.
Was hoping the loader image would eventually let me score, but I racked up 14 outs. :)
Site doesn't load in IE9 nor give me any errors, but it is IE9.
Congrats to the HLK Agency team.
This is insanely good. Love it
Beautifully executed! Thanks for sharing this
Loading is stuck at 43% for me with the following error in the console: "Uncaught TypeError: Failed to execute 'appendChild' on 'Node': parameter 1 is not of type 'Node'. browns.min.js:5"
Works fine in IE though, so I guess this may be caused by my extensions in chrome (mainly ublock and ghostery).
Ublock is the cause
Like others have said, it's definitely laggy/confusing in spots, but it's certainly one of the most beautiful sites I've seen in recent memory.
That said, I'm surprised they didn't have the end user score a run once the page was finished loading!
