Hello everyone, most of you know I have a basketball website, but I also have a Cubs' minor league blog, Road To Wrigley for MVN.com.
So, because of this I have the opportunity of getting some press credentials to some local minor league teams. I've never had press credentials before, but I'm assuming that I will get into the games free, but what other privileges will I have?
I'm just curious, because I've never been down this road before.
Thanks in advance!
As a general rule, I found from my experience that people treat small-time sports writers pretty well. Whether that's because they want good coverage or something else, I dunno. But I never had any problems.
Getting to know the radio guys also pays great dividends. They're usually employed by the ball club and can get you access to what you need and give you tips for stories and such. Sitting in the press box with them and gabbing in between innings is a great way to do this.
