Dear Mr. Linton:
Hi, my name is Jack. I am writing an article about prospects in the minor leagues and I want to interview some of your biggest prospects. I am going to submit my article to SI KIDS.com.
That’s the letter Jack wrote. We have sent it out to the Trenton Thunder, the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, the Lakewood Blueclaws, the Brooklyn Cyclones, the Staten Island Yankees, the Reaging Fightin’ Phils, the Aberdeen Iron Birds, the Delmarva Shorebirds, and the Scranton Railriders. Basically, every minor league team within 3 hours.
This is a great idea because:
- These guys are gonna roll out the red carpet for this cute kid on this wholesome project, right? That means we’ll get stadium tours, interview prospects, and get a crapload of swag and hopefully go to some games for FREE.
- Jack is a genuinely good writer and this is a super project for him to undertake over the summer.
- If Jack wants to be a baseball player, I really have nothing to teach him. But I can most definitely teach him how to write — shit, I do that every day.
- This is fodder for some awesome blog content for me.
Damn — is this a great idea or what?
