As I’m sure all the baseball fans out there know, spring training kicks off this week. The Yankees’ pitchers and catchers
officially reported to Tampa today to prepare for the 2013 season. Few things compare to hearing the sounds of balls pounding into gloves and cracking off wooden bats as the teams workout in sunny Florida and Arizona to get ready for the grueling 162-game schedule over the course of six months. It’s days like today that make the following announcement worthwhile:
161st & River is back!
Yes, the one-stop website for all your Yankees news that my good friend Sean O’Leary created in 2008 has returned to the web … and we’re coming with a vengeance. In addition to providing you with the top headlines from those paid to write and report on the Yankees we’ll also be creating our own content through the site blog, providing a tweet stream for any instant news & updates, and moderating our discussion forums allowing users to vent about almost anything they wish. It’s easily integrated with Facebook and Twitter, so you have the option to sign in with either account or you can register with an e-mail address.
161st and River was the website that really kicked off my foray into blogging and I plan on being an active part of its return, much like I was dating back to our humble beginnings in 2006 as a Facebook group, as a forum moderator and site blogger. The site is currently slated for an official launch on Opening Day; Sean is presently looking for people to blog, moderate forums and help out with site maintenance. If you’d like to help out in any way, hit us up on Facebook and Twitter.
Hopefully I’ll see you guys at 161st & River!
