As promised in my last blog post, here are the details on Pitch Talks: St. Louis, which will occur next week. As for the giveaway I also promised, it’s at the bottom of the post. Read on:
Pitch Talks, part of the Homestand Sports network, connects fans to the game they love for interactive and meaningful face-to-face conversations with baseball’s top analysts, writers, and executives. Founder and CEO Kevin Kennedy says, “This is always a special night for fans to get up close and personal with not only the journalists and teams they follow but also with other fans. This is a place to grab a beer and talk baseball as if running into these guys at a bar.”
Pitch Talks is coming to the Delmar Hall in St Louis, Missouri at 7:00 PM on May 18, 2017. Pitch Talks is a speaker series that brings top baseball media to bars and clubs across North America. The St. Louis panel will contain special guests from all aspects of sports media. These events pierce the veil of sports talk on TV and radio and create an up-close, personal, uncensored environment for fans to discuss baseball.
