MLB Advanced Media, the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, has hired longtime USA Today baseball columnist Hal Bodley as senior correspondent. Bodley will provide fans with his unique perspective of the game across various platforms as a columnist and on-air analyst on MLB.com.
Bodley, who has covered the game since 1958, has attended nearly every major event in the sport, including 43 World Series and 41 All-Star Games, has worked more than 4,000 games, has seen more than 36,000 innings played and has interviewed thousands of baseball personnel and six sitting Presidents of the United States. He has also written two best-selling baseball books: The Team That Wouldn’t Die, an account of the Philadelphia Phillies 1980 championship year, and Countdown to Cobb, a chronicle of Pete Rose’s 1985 pursuit of Ty Cobb’s career hits record.
