Welcome to Redleg Nation!
In my travels around the baseball blogosphere, I’ve been amazed by the level of analysis and dedication of fans from various Major League Baseball teams. There are some great writers and obsessed fans of every team out there, and it’s impressive.
Something else I’ve noticed is the relative dearth of blogs focused on the Cincinnati Reds. I’m talking quantity here, not quality; there are several excellent Reds blogs out there (they’re in my Redleg Nation Blogs blogroll to the right), and they’re all daily reads for me. However, where there are a dozen or more blogs devoted to a lot of teams, there are currently only a handful of Reds blogs.
Enter Redleg Nation. We’re going to be different than the other Reds blogs; as far as I can tell, this is the first group blog devoted to the oldest professional baseball club. Since we will have several contributors, expect the blog to be updated frequently.
You should know up front that we’re obsessed with the Cincinnati Reds, and we’re proud of it. Most of all, we would like this to become a place where Reds fans can gather (feel free to comment liberally!) to discuss the best team baseball has to offer — and be obsessed together.
So thanks for dropping by, and I hope you’ll return often. My name is Chad, by the way, and you’ll be meeting the fellow Redleg Nation bloggers over the next day or so. We look forward to getting to meet you — for you are the heart of Redleg Nation.
Hopefully, together we can follow the Reds right back to the World Series — where they belong.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
Chad launched Redleg Nation in February 2005, and has been writing about the Reds ever since. His first book, “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds” is now available in bookstores and online, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold. You can also find Chad’s musings about the Cincinnati Reds in the pages of Cincinnati Magazine.
