In 2008, I covered the Can Am League for the Press of Atlantic City and the Worcester Telegram. I have covered the Eastern League since 2008 for The Trentonian, Pinstripes Plus, Project Prospect, and Baseball Digest. That same year I covered high school cross country for The Trentonian and Milesplit.com.
In 2010 I contributed spring training reports & other stories to to Project Prospect, a website devoted to scouting and prospect analysis. I have covered baseball for the Worcester Telegram, Press of Atlantic City, and the The Binghamton Press & Bulletin.
