Baseball Bloggers Alliance Forms

Independent baseball bloggers are joining together in the recently formed Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA). Designed to foster communication and collaboration among bloggers across baseball, the organization already has more than 75 members less than a month after its formation. Twenty-eight of the thirty MLB teams are represented by at least one blogger, and the remaining teams will be covered soon. In addition, a number of general baseball blogs and sites are also participating.

Member blogs are encouraged to use one another to deepen their understanding of the game and the teams that play it. While no formal requirements for membership exist at the current time, participating blogs are asked to keep their blogs current and to link to other member blogs on their blog roll.

Founder Daniel Shoptaw notes that, even in the few weeks that the BBA has been in existence, the intended collaboration has already taken effect.
