Latest Leaders – May 2012

Latest Leaders logoWe’re past the Memorial Day checkpoint of the season and the standings are becoming increasingly important to Major League Baseball fans. Fantasy owners are doing everything they can to put their teams in first place, as MLB.com Fantasy 411 was the top-ranked MLB Pro Blog for May. Zack Hample‘s milestone 50th stadium visit helped him claim the honors in the Fan division, while Carrie’s Muskat Ramblings topped the MLB.com Beat Writers en route to overall bragging rights with more traffic than any other MLB.com Blog. Congratulations to everyone who made the list!

Happy 20th Anniversary to baseball iconic flick “A League of Their Own” which was first premiered on July 1, 1992. This league was a huge plus in the advancement of women’s athletics, plus had some great comedic catch phrases that live on today on MLB fields.

Just wanted to mention that my blog is celebrating it’s four-year anniversary today. I’ve been incredibly blessed to be a part of this community for the past four years. It’s been absolutely amazing. Thank you to all who have been a part of my blogging experience!

Great company here, as usaul. Congrats to all, and thank you for checking out mine out and following this year’s baseball trip. For most of us, this is just a fun hobby, but always nice to see others enjoy your work, and sharing everyone else’s baseball adventures.

Congrats to all on the list, as well as those who don’t. It’s the passion and work of everyone involved here that makes this such a great community. It’s an honor and a privilege to find myself back on the list. I love being able to write about baseball and raising money for cancer, it’s a win-win situation for me. Cheers, everyone!

if anyone’s interested in linking up, to help spread word of your site, andhelp me spread word of mine (#22), hit me up at swingingbuntz.com. lets do this! its all about shameless promotion!

I kind of like sitting in the Fans Wild Card spot during the season on the monthly lists. It will make the moment I take a gamble and race upward even more sweet and memorable. Maybe I should practice my art of Wa and unify my words and spirit as one…..I know, this is waaaaay too deep, but I’m passionate about baseball and writing.

Thank you again to all who pass, comment and just plain give a giggle at my random thoughts and malfunctions. I want to remind each and every blogger sitting at or below the Top 50 mark, I was in your shoes in 2007. It took time, but finally people began to read, comment and interact we me on here and other social media sources. Be patient, love what you do and you will see your name on these lists sooner rather than later..You can take that to the bak and get your FREE toaster ( not really, but it sounds good).

Congrads to all who made the list!!! Also I have a new post up about the no-hitter last night which you can find at mattsblog.mlblogs.com

also my blog now has its very own facebook page so give us a like!

Congratulations to everyone who made the list and those who are the verge of being a June or July call up, as it were. I look forward to checking out all of the list newbies. Thank you to those who continue to read my blog! Barring season tickets, say just behind third base, I can’t imagine a better way to spend the season. :)
