BP Announcements

BP's New BBWAA Members

by Ben Lindbergh

Every year at the Winter Meetings, baseball writers take a break from reporting rumors to attend to baseball writer business. (Except for Ken Rosenthal. Ken Rosenthal doesn't take breaks. Seriously kind of worried about Ken.) One of the items on the agenda at this annual BBWAA meeting is always admitting new members. A year ago, I had the pleasure of announcing my own induction. This year, we have more new members to announce: Joe Hamrahi and Sam Miller are now BBWAA members under the BP banner, as is Zachary Levine (who had previously been admitted as a representative of the Houston Chronicle).

Congratulations and welcome to Joe and Sam (and to Zachary, uh, welcome back, but with BP now). More members with press passes means more access and better baseball coverage at BP, so expect more material that benefits from our presence at the ballpark ahead.

Someone may want to explain the BBWAA Member voting rules, so people know exactly what it means. I'm not 100% sure, myself.

Did Sam Miller not have BBWAA membership when he wrote for the OC Register?
