Baseball with Matt’s First Seamheads Post
Hey baseball fans!
Matt Nadel here from Baseball with Matt. I’m a 13-year-old 8th grader from Springfield, NJ who loves video games, chocolate ice cream with rice krispies, and especially baseball. My favorite team from the 21st century is the Yankees. But I also love the whole history of the game, including the great old timers, teams, ballparks and events of the past. I started my original blog on Google Blogger back in April because, as I learned more about baseball, I found that most of my friends knew very little about baseball history and I thought that a blog would be a fun way to teach kids (and even some adults) about the history of our national pastime. I’m also the youngest Pro Blogger on MLB.com.
In this blog, I will try to shed some light on baseball history from a kid’s perspective. Some of my blogs will be just me writing about different stuff and others will be interviews that I do with all sorts of people in baseball history (like players, owners, reporters, managers, scorekeepers and anyone else who may be interesting to baseball fans — I really would love to try to interview every living Hall of Famer and learn their life lessons for kids (I’ve interviewed a few already, which I will be posting on the blog over time)).
One day, after I go to high school and college, I hope to be a full time baseball journalist and historian.
I hope you like what I have to say. If you do, please tell all of your friends. And feel free to check out my original blog which has almost 90 posts and other cool stuff, too.
Matt Nadel is a 13 year old baseball history kid blogger from Springfield, NJ who writes two baseball blogs under the name, Baseball with Matt. Matt started his original blog back in April 2012 when he saw that a lot of his friends didn’t know anything about baseball history and he thought that a blog would be a fun way to educate kids and adults about baseball history. After posting nearly 85 times, he was introduced to John Thorn, the official historian for MLB, and John liked Matt’s blog and arranged for Matt to have his own Pro Blog on MLB, making Matt the youngest Pro blogger on MLB.com.
