Hello and welcome the first ever entry in the DIAMONDBLACK DIALOGUE blog.
In the days, weeks, months and years ahead we will be providing up to date information on all the goings on in Baseball New Zealand and around the world.
About the author:
My name is Ian West and I have been a sports journalist for six years mainly covering cricket in different parts of the world. I have been a huge baseball fan since the turn of the century and when I recently moved from to Auckland from the UK I contacted Ryan Flynn volunteering my services to baseball in this great country and we are.
First and foremost I am a baseball fan. I make no claims to be an expert and this is my first journey into Baseball journalism but one thing I dont lack is passion for the sport and hopefully that will be for everyone to see in my writing.
About the blog:
This will also be an interactive blog. While I am still getting to know the ins and outs of Baseball in this country I will gladly recieve any pieces of information that people out there feel worthy of a mention whether it be from International level down to club/junior baseball.
Over the next few days I will begin add various interviews and news articles to the blog, hopefully this can be the start of something very special and I look forward to hearing from as many of you from the Baseball New Zealand community as possible.
