HOF Reporter Peter Gammons Formally Launches New MLB-Dedicated Website
GammonsDaily.com, the new online venture from HOF columnist Peter Gammons, formally launched today, with the Red Sox’ acquisition of P Jake Peavy from the White Sox before the trade deadline serving as the top story at presstime. The page is split into “The Gammons Files” and “The Hit List,” reports from outside contributors. Below is a rumor roundup under the headline “Sources Say” (THE DAILY). Gammons earlier in the week discussed the endeavor on Vimeo, saying, "Back in 1972, I started my Sunday baseball notes column, which became something of my signature. The media's changed dramatically in that time, but one thing has never changed -- this is a game played by great athletes who also happen to be vulnerable. I'm really grateful for the opportunity to cover this game all these years. Now I'm going on a new venture. I'm going out to start something called GammonsDaily.com, which is an unfiltered look at baseball through my eyes and through the eyes of many friends of mine. What you'll find on GammonsDaily.com are exclusive interviews, live Google hangouts, exclusive breaking news from my MLB sources, player and team analysis and featured contributions from around the country. I'd be honored to have your support" (VIMEO.com, 7/29). For more on GammonsDaily.com, see this week's SportsBusiness Journal.
