Greetings from Music City! And thank you for visiting the blog. So many new things have happened to me in the past couple of months, that I figured it was appropriate to venture into two more new things these past couple of days — Twitter and the blogosphere.
I want to begin by saying that while I hope this blog will become a regular in your Websites I Have to Visit Often rotation, I will admit to you that I have no idea exactly what this blog will become. Blogging is something I’ve thought about doing for a long time…not because I think I have tremendous insight that I simply must share with the “world,” but rather I really enjoy writing and do not do it as often as I’d like. So, I think this blog will satisfy my craving to write. What will it do for you? I have no idea, and I’m excited about that. It would be very easy to say this blog will be where you can go to read strictly about the Nashville Sounds, the Brewers’ Triple-A affiliate for whom I began working last month. Or it could be a blog specifically about baseball broadcasting. Or about the Pacific Coast League and the cities and stadiums the Sounds travel to this season. Or about working in Minor League Baseball. Or about news and notes from around the major leagues. My hope, though, is that on some level you want the blog to be about all of those things and more, not just one. If that’s the case, then we’re on the same page. While I haven’t written a blog before today, I’ve certainly read those of others, and my inspiration was to create a blog that, while you’re waiting for the latest post to load, has you thinking, “I wonder what’s on here today.” If it were one dimensional, my guess is you’d have little interest in returning.
Overall, the blog will be centered around three of my greatest passions: baseball, radio and baseball on the radio (hence the blog title and the background image). I hope you enjoy it, and I hope from time to time you’ll leave a comment, ask a question, suggest a blog topic, etc.
Thanks for listening! (On the Air…and Off)
