While the Baltimore Orioles’ 2012 season has just recently ended I’ve been very busy at Birds Watcher getting the “literary staff” set for 2013. We had a great response to the posting that Fansided ran inquiring about potential new writers, and I’m pleased to announce that as of today we’ve brought aboard Margaret Hooper as our newest staff writer. As you can see if you read her author’s page, she is removed from the Baltimore region, which I feel will give her a unique viewpoint given that she’s watching the games and events unfold from afar. She’s also the granddaughter of former Baltimore Colts’ and WBAL broadcaster Vince Bagli, so she’s fairly close to all Baltimore teams. On behalf of Birds Watcher and the Fansided Network, please join me in welcoming Margaret to our merry ship! You can expect her first posting later this coming week.
