Philadelphia's Premier Baseball News Media Outlet: The Philadelphia Baseball Review

Our Story
I remember riding in the bed of a pickup truck through the streets of Juniata Park after winning the Devlin League travel championship in the summer of 1995. Music blared as a half dozen of my teammates bounced around, yelling about our win over Max Myers. 
 
I was 12-years-old and knew that would be the pinnacle of my playing career. A few years later, I turned my attention from my glove to a shiny new Dell laptop, realizing I could use my skills as a writer to stay close to the game. 

Now, having covered baseball in Philadelphia for nearly two decades with bylines in dozens of publications, including MLB.com, Baseball America, and the Philadelphia Daily News, I want to see the game grow in a meaningful way.
 
 

Our purpose is to grow the sport in the region while covering the countless storylines, especially at the amateur level, that large mainstream media outlets ignore. With over two dozen college programs in our coverage area, nearly a hundred high schools in Philadelphia, and three high-caliber adult leagues (Delco, Perky, Pendel), there is plenty to cover.
 
The Phillies may dominate the headlines, but so many other baseball storylines are worth being told, particularly at the amateur level. That's the aim of the Philadelphia Baseball Review; baseball journalism with purpose.  

Founded in 2007, the Philadelphia Baseball Review is credentialed by Major League Baseball.
