Prospectus Idol Entry
Brittany Ghiroli's Initial Submission
Bio: I believe I should be the next Baseball Prospectus Idol because the baseball world needs a different voice and a fresh perspective. Seemingly everywhere you look there's a new stats-induced column or rant about the latest million-dollar Yankee signing. As BP Idol, I will bring something unique to each column and give readers a glimpse inside the locker room and out on the field. As a young female, I have had the opportunity to cover 12 different teams in various amounts and had articles featured in the American League Championship Series and World Series programs. Baseball may be a tradition-rich venture, but the call for a new voice is long overdue. If the BP judges put me through to the second round, I have no doubt your readers will agree. Think of me as your "Rookie in Relief" : young, energetic and always ready to step up and take the ball.
