The Shorebirds Blog is back and so am I folks. Good to be back with the Shorebirds after a month away.
As you may have noticed, we are really trying to focus on former Shorebirds in the offseason. I already interviewed both Joe Mahoney and Eddie Gamboa. It was fun to reconnect with those guys the last couple of weeks.
Doc Shorebird was nice enough to post the both links on the Orioles Hangout. Some folks have commented on the interviews on the Hangout – http://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/showthread.php?t=89575
I am trying to do a year-by-year “Where are they Now” feature for the website in honor of the 15th Anniversary Season. I emailed the Jays yesterday trying to get a hold of Michael Barrett from the ’96 team. Hopefully we can get that rolling as well.
Any thoughts/ideas or people you would like me to interview, please feel free to email me at blasky@theshorebirds or post a comment right here on the blog.
