The Grain of the Game is a sports beat blog brought to you by Atticus Rice, sportswriter for the McDaniel Free Press and play-by-play broadcaster in training. He can be found on Twitter at @atticusrice. A Communication and Political Science double major at McDaniel College, a liberal arts school outside of Baltimore, Rice brings commentary strands sometimes left untouched by the typical beat writer and reporter.
The Grain of the Game currently covers the New York Mets (MLB), Hillsboro Hops (MiLB), and all sports played at McDaniel College (NCAA D3). There are currently plans to expand to the Baltimore Orioles (MLB), Portland Pickles (GWL), and Gresham GreyWolves (WCL) by the summer of 2016.
If you have any requests of specific games, leagues, or teams for the blog to cover, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Many scorecards will be uploaded for reviewed baseball games, including historical ones. A download link will be provided for each game. If you want a general or game specific scorecard just ask and one will be created for you.
