Baseball blogosphere news

Posted at 3:22 PM on May 4, 2006 by Ben Tesch

MLB Fair Press is a movement to force Major League Baseball to open up its press pass policy to include the world of legitimate blogging. MLB currently enforces a league-wide policy that bans local organizations from granting press credentials to any website not affiliated with a major national news distribution source, like MSN, ESPN, etc. We believe this blanket ban on websites is unfair and unfounded, especially given the expansive popularity of blogs as a preferred source of sports news.

And speaking of blogs, what with the stadium issue being a big deal, you should probably check out Friendly Confines if you don't already. The editor is a Minnesota Legislative clerk, and he thus gives a very insider view of the situation.
