From Minor League Baseball to a Major Road Trip: Part 1

The Tornadoes are on their longest road trip of the season, which also happens to cover the most mileage of any other trip. After ending Friday’s home win against the Rockland Boulders, there were about seven hours separating us from an eight-hour bus trip to Quebec City, Quebec. After the three-game set with the Capitales,

From Minor League Baseball to a Major Storm

I’m sitting here in Pittsfield, Mass, right on the MA-NY border, listening to music from an iPod blasted over the speakers, trying to wash away the sounds of the pouring rain and rampant thunder around the ballpark. Suffice it to say, Mother Nature’s winning that battle. Although I’ve certainly encountered stranger things, I don’t see

From Minor League Baseball to… Minor League Hockey: Part 10

I really enjoyed going to the Paw Sox game yesterday, and I certainly don’t regret going. It was nice to meet and truly engage with a couple more of my boothian role models. (“Official” count of made-up words through my website: 2.) However, it was weird driving south on Interstates 93 & 95 for an

From Minor League Baseball to Major Fun: Part 1

For the next four or five weekends, I’ll be making trips to local minor league ballparks. It will be nice to see some games as a fan, but that’s not the only (or even primary) reason I’m going. My mission is to make some new friends throughout baseball, learn about all the different promos other

From Minor League Baseball to… Minor League Hockey: Part 8

I got a baseball job. What the heck does that have to do with minor league hockey? Quite a bit, actually. In fact, there’s no way I would have gotten this job if it weren’t for my hockey experience this season. Major props to Adam Kaufman (the Providence Bruins‘ Radio Broadcaster), who has been a

From Minor League Baseball to Broadcasting’s Wolf Pack

I recently had a vision for how the media family breaks down in minor league sports, and it reminded me of one of my favorite comedies: The Hangover. The way I see it, there are three main parts to media operations in sports: live in-house communication (like Public Address Announcing), live broadcasting communication (like radio,

From Minor League Baseball to Childhood (and Back)

Soon after one of my adult front teeth got knocked out, I went to a Red Sox game. (The tooth is still healthy and in my mouth, believe it or not.) It was the fall of 1996, and I discovered a new player that day while at Fenway with my dad. At that point in

From Minor League Baseball to Hockey East

  Despite the Boston University Terriers’ loss to the Boston College Eagles in the Beanpot Semifinals, it’s not all doom and gloom for me. (I got a blog post out of it. That has to be worth something, right?) If there was one good thing about the game that I saw on NESN, it was
