This Year: The Majors

Jack's letters to MLB

On the back of Jack’s successful minor league writing project last year, we are now going for the Majors. This very morning Jack sent letters to:

  • Yankees
  • Mets
  • Red Sox
  • Orioles
  • Phillies
  • Nationals
  • White Sox (we’re in Chicago in August)
  • Cleveland (August trip)
  • Kansas City (August trip)

Here is the letter:

Tony Morante, Director, Stadium Tours
Yankees Stadium

161st St and River Ave
Bronx, NY 10452

Dear Mr. Morante,

My name is Jack Nuckols. I am 10 years old. I am a huge baseball fan. I wanted to know if I could come to Yankees Stadium and interview players/coaches/announcers and see how things work behind the scenes at the park. I want to write an article for Sports Illustrated for Kids. Last year I did an article on the same type of thing except for the Minor Leagues. Two of the teams I interviewed were in your farm system. They are the Railriders and the Trenton Thunder. I interviewed John Sadak at the Rairiders. I interviewed Adam Giardino and Jeremy Bleich for the Thunder.

My article was published in my local newspaper, the Haddonfield Sun. (My article is included.) This time I am trying to get into a bigger magazine because I’m doing a bigger league.

Please email or call my dad (info above) if you would let me come do this.

Thank you,

Jack Nuckols

Once again, this is brilliant for a number of reasons. It’s a terrific project for Jack, it’s great blog fodder for me, but above all: FREE GAMES AND TOURS!

Am I using my kids for my own selfish gain? Duh! Isn’t that the point of having kids?
