Dom, Hannah and I have had the great pleasure of being featured in an article on The Athletic.
Alex Coffey has recently been appointed as their A’s beat writer and she got in contact with us to find out more about our A’s UK group and the peculiarities of following Oakland from across the pond.
I’ve been a subscriber of The Athletic for nearly two years now and can highly recommend it. Baseball fans can enjoy plenty of well-known national writers (Ken Rosenthal, Jayson Stark, Peter Gammons etc) plus beat writers covering the vast majority of teams. If, like me, you’re not someone who follows other North American sports too closely then the launch of the Athletic UK office earlier this year has resulted in lots of excellent football (as in football!) coverage, with plans to expand out into other traditional British sports too.
It’s well worth signing-up for the trial at least to see what’s on offer, if only to read the article about us!
