The authors of Baseball Prospectus are proud to bring you BPR – Baseball Prospectus Radio. In the vast wasteland of sports radio, baseball talk is limited to a few minutes interspersed with basketball and football. BPR will be one solid hour of the most intelligent baseball conversation available. Hosted by Will Carroll, we'll have great guests, great analysis, and conversations with baseball writers, team executives, players, and the BP authors. The show launches in late February with six preseason divisional preview shows.
Who can you look forward to hearing? Our first show had Peter Gammons of ESPN and Stan Conte, the trainer of the San Francisco Giants. While this show isn't intended for air – no commercials, you know – you can win a copy in our first BPR contest. Click on this link and give us your best slogan for the show. The winner gets an autographed copy of the first show and the chance to ask the first BPR Mailbag question.
In coming weeks, we'll hear from
- MLB Players
- Hot Prospects
- Athletic Trainers
- Team Physicians
- General Managers
- Scouting Directors
- Beat Writers and Columnists
We'll have more announcements regarding topics and guests coming soon, but if you want to hear BPR in your part of the country, this is your chance. Call your local sports radio station and ask them to carry BPR. If they need details, have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800 TALK 2 90 and ask for details from our affiliate relations manager.
