When I first began writing about baseball five years ago, I did so with the intention of building a network to one day work for a team in a full-time capacity. After moving from site to site, completing various internships, interviews and special assignments, I have finally accomplished my goal of joining a team and will be leaving Capitol Avenue Club and ESPN, effective immediately.
Over the past few months, the frequency of my writing has diminished as my focus has shifted towards a career in sports marketing, public relations and social media. I apologize for the lessened content on my end, but it was made possible with the additions of Franklin, David and Ethan this season. As I depart, I am confident that the current staff or writers will continue to provide the most in-depth Braves analysis available.
As of tomorrow, I will begin working as a Social Media and Research Analyst for an NFL team and will put my baseball writing career behind me. Although my long-form writing will disappear, I can assure you that my personal friends dislike, my incessant Braves tweeting (@kevinorris) will continue.
Thank you again for your loyal readership and eternal dedication to CAC. Thanks also to Peter for providing me with the initial opportunity here and Ben for covering me whenever I was too lazy to write something.
Finally, the internet tells me John Gay once said, “We only part to meet again.” I don’t know who John Gay is, but who knows … we may meet again.
