Baseball Side of FanSided (4/3)

Welcome to the debut of the Baseball Side of FanSided on Call to the Pen.  I started this series over on our Royals site, Kings of Kauffman, just after Thanksgiving of last year, but Call to the Pen seems to be a more natural fit going forward.  For those of you not aware, the BBSoFS is a weekly article designed to highlight one article from each of our MLB sites on the FanSided.com Sports Network.  The ultimate goal is to increase the exposure of our MLB team sites, highlight some the work of our writers and in doing so pass along some articles that are relevant to the “happenings” and topics of the week that was.  The BBSoFS also affords me the opportunity to announce new writers to our MLB staff and also to announce staff openings that we have.  Typically this will be published every Friday but from to time, as is the case this week, it will be posted on a Saturday.

With the introduction out of the way, it’s time to get down to business.

New Staff:

Jon Twibell is joining Michael Engel and myself over on our Kansas City Royals site, Kings of Kauffman, as a contributor.  His first article should be up at some point this weekend and if you happen to read it, and enjoy it, he will be writing one or two articles each week.

Help Wanted:

If you are interested in joining our MLB staff to write for one of the listed teams, please don’t hesitate to contact us a [email protected]  We break our staff down into two roles.  Lead Writers are expected to write and publish content on a regular basis.  Contributing Writers are expected to write and publish at least one article per week but are welcome to write more if they choose to do so.
