The Baseball Bloggers Alliance is not only a membership for writers, we also support podcasters/videocasters and vloggers. We have many talented people who are doing an awesome job covering the game of Major League Baseball. If you know a show that is good and think they should be on this page, check out our contact information and send us a note.
We have an outstanding amount of baseball fans that are doing audio and video presentations for the game of baseball that are not even being paid for it.
I would put the content of these shows up against a lot of the paid professionals of the MLB – or any other entity that possesses the wherewithal to be able to do that.
If you want to keep scrolling down, all of the information listed below is all of the shows for the week from all, or maybe you have a favorite, then you can just click on one of the highlighted shows.
In this opening week we had Sully Baseball talk a lot about the Pirates, D’Backs, Cubs and the Cardinals in opening week. He keyed on where Tim Lincecum may end up, and the opening start for Zack Greinke. Like everyone else, he also submitted his yearly predictions.
Sully also delivered an emotional podcast where he implores everyone to love their extended family more on April 2, 2016 – because you don’t know when you may lose some one.
BBA Live! is entering its second season. Listen in as AC Wayne is again joined by Ricky Keeler of Yanks Go Yard and District On Deck (Nats) as we discuss all the latest news and headlines throughout the league. Tentatively scheduled, as always: Rich Rivera of Mets Public Record.
ShareTweetThis week, Shawn Anderson and Lou Olsen talk with America’s favorite houseguest Kato Kaelin.
Kato tells the boys about how and why baseball brought him from his home in suburban Milwaukee to Los Angeles, his love/hate relationship with his beloved Milwaukee Brewers and, of course, his new sports talk show, Sports Haters.
Jays From the Couch brings you Episode 68 of the Jays Nest Podcast. This week, we discuss Blue Jays Opening Day, minor league rosters & more!
Jays From the Couch brings you another great episode of the Jays Nest Podcast. It seems like just a few days ago that we brought you our special Season Opener episode…Since then, the Toronto Blue Jays have started the 2016 season with a bang. They beat the Tampa Bay Rays and everything is all good in Blue Jays Land.
This week, we bring you our takeaways from the first game of the season. There were quite a few to choose from. We look at the minor league rosters for the Blue Jays affiliates. There are some surprises as you look at each level of the system. Where does your favorite prospect start the season? We break it down for you. We look ahead at the upcoming series against the Red Sox after we dig into the rest of the Rays’ series. We also have some great reader questions for you.
The Opening Day matchup against the Rays provided a few different talking points. Firstly, the efforts of Marcus Stroman cannot be understated. But, the game wasn’t full of sunshine and rainbows. We look at a few things that stood out to us.
The Blue Jays telecast saw some fairly impressive numbers. We look at the implications of a full season of this kind of following.
We break down the minor league rosters and how they shook out. There are some surprises when you look at who will be starting the season where. Of course, starting the season is one thing, where they end up is another.
The Blue Jays have played one game, but that doesn’t stop us from extrapolating their performance to look at how they stack up in the AL East. Actually, the first game of the season offers some insight into how they might do and we explain it.
—The Pirates Breakdown Podcast is a weekly show hosted by Tyler, Steve, and Jason featuring recaps, news, opinion, analysis, special guests, and more. Each week we take stock of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ landscape and offer our thoughts on the current state of the team. Future plans for the show include exciting guests and plenty of reader interaction
Every week, two of the Best Fans in Baseball (TM) bring you all the news and analysis you need about the St. Louis Cardinals. This week, Daniel Shoptaw (C70 At The Bat) and Tara Wellman (Bird Seeds) try to get through an entire podcast without sustaining an injury, something the team seemed unable to do all week long. Beyond the folks that got hurt to end the spring, Tommy Pham got hurt in the opener. Will anyone be still standing at the end of the week? While the 2016 season is just one game deep, there were a lot of issues from the past that reared their head again. Is this the way this season is going to go? Where’s the optimism? All that and more!

Sports bloggers, Rich Baxter and Gary Mack, give their opinions on the week that was in baseball and the week ahead for the best teams in pro baseball
I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University.
Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19.
After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days
in the summer 0f 2009.
In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker .
In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at http://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
