Default My interview with a Major League player

So, I started a blog, and for my first real story, I did an article on Chris Dickerson, Reds outfielder and active environmentalist.

I sent him an email with a couple of questions and he graciously answered them for me.

You can check out the story here:

I appreciate all the "hits" I can get.

Thanks guys.

Ha, I figured you guys wouldn't mind.

I'm pretty pumped about the whole thing. Dickerson is a hell of a guy. I was really impressed with his willingness to talk to me

Pretty cool CK.

Article #1 looks like Christmas morning for you: Reds baseball, Al Gore and recycling.



And managing to make that combo interesting is no easy task, so job well done.

Thanks buck. I was pretty excited when I learned he had similar believes as me on the environment and that he was willing to be interviewed.

Did you happen to see the post under the story? It's a video of this preacher in Harlem who hates Obama. You might find it enjoyable :thumbup:

Most major leaguers are willing to sit down and talk, as long as they know what the topics are going to be. They do not like being surprised by questions, at least that's been my experience. I haven't had a chance to talk to a major leaguer at length for quite a while, but I have found them to be reasonable. Of course its always nice to find one that you agree with on a subject you are interested in.
Nice job.

CINCINNATI -- The bandage above Reds left fielder Chris Dickerson's right eye was covering a pretty sizeable bump. Was he hit in the face by a ball during batting practice? No.

Was it from a fight? Not exactly.

Dickerson's attacker struck Saturday morning as he headed to Great American Ball Park. The lurking evil was a revolving glass door at the downtown hotel where he is staying. He apparently banged his head on the door as it swung around.

Unfortunate accidents happen occasionally. I hope he doesn't have to go on the DL because of this. It would be another in a long line of strange injuries that disable players.
