Brew Crew Ball is looking to hire one new writer for the website.
First off, let’s take a moment to recognize and appreciate Brad Ford for all the contributions he made to BCB over the years. From his Daily Prospect Reports, to his pre-draft coverage, to his post-draft interviews, to his scouting, analysis, opinion posts, no one covered Milwaukee’s minor league system and the MLB Draft like Brad. His presence elevated everyone at the site and his work helped to improve the overall minor league coverage for the Brewers around the internet. More than that, Brad is a tremendous person and great friend. He has earned an amazing opportunity and he deserves all of the wonderful things that will be coming his way. I am proud to have managed him at this site and to be able to call him my friend.
So with Brad moving on, a new opportunity is now open for a fresh voice at Brew Crew Ball to join our current lineup of regular contributors with Jaymes, JP, and David, and I. The ideal candidate has daytime availability during the weekdays (until roughly 4 pm central) in order to help cover any breaking news that may happen while other members of the staff may be at their full-time jobs or classes. This candidate should also be skilled in statistical analysis of in-game baseball moves and roster building transactions. Familiarity with Milwaukee’s minor league system and ability to analyze scouting information is also a plus, although this position does need to be strictly about covering the minor leagues.
We need someone who can commit to contributing a minimum of two (2) to three (3) posts per week. During the regular season the workload may be a little heavier as we’ll need this person to help with covering game recaps, so availability for that is key. This is a paid, remote, part-time, contract position, with a monthly stipend.
I’m looking for a writer who won’t hesitate to challenge conventional wisdom, who will dig deep to support their ideas, and who isn’t afraid to be critical of something they may not agree with. You aren’t required to be a Brewers’ fan to apply, but do keep in mind that the Milwaukee Nine is the main focus of this site and will be what you write about here at BCB.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN APPLYING:
Submit a resume, cover letter, and a Brewers-related writing sample to Kyle Lesniewski at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will not be considered for this role unless you submit these three items. If you are interested in this role, you must apply via email by 11 January 2021.
SB Nation and Brew Crew Ball are dedicated to bringing you coverage of the Milwaukee Brewers from a diverse array of voices and writers of all backgrounds. If your qualifications and experience do not perfectly align with everything we’re looking for, but you believe you have the potential to thrive in this role, we encourage you to apply.
