A Reintroduction

Allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is Jay Floyd. For years I have written on this site under my nickname, Jay Ballz. During my time covering games at the ball parks I have always used my real name, since for some reason nicknames are not welcome or happily included on media credentials.

The name switch was something I wanted to make happen over this off-season. It was urged forward, to sooner rather than later, when I was invited to join the crew of contributors at I figured there was no better time to make the change than at a time when I would be introduced to thousands of brand new readers at the other site.

My work with PhilliesNation is not expected to change what I do on this site and should serve as a great way to reach new readers and a way to bond with other solid baseball writers and enthusiasts.

To those not familiar with PhilliesNation, it is a solid place for Philadelphia baseball coverage brought to the phans by a collection of writers and led by 97.3 ESPN's anchor/reporter Pat Gallen. The site delivers unique analysis and breaking news, which is why I deemed it a good fit.

As has grown, it has become known for its minor league coverage, as I've brought exclusive stories and interviews from players throughout the Phillies' organization to the public. I will be providing the PhilliesNation audience with the same content.

Thank you readers, for your support to this point. I look forward to continued growth for both sites.
