Jay Floyd’s grandfather drove the Phillies’ bus for regional road trips during the 1960’s. Since those days, baseball was in the family.
In the past decade, Jay has spent time as a coach to teenage players, as a minor league reporter and as a weekly radio analyst during the professional baseball season.
This web site, PhoulBallz.com, served as a launching pad for Jay to start writing about the great sport and the site’s affiliation with the Townsquare Media group’s Shore Sports Network allowed Jay to cover local minor league clubs, like the Lakewood BlueClaws, from the inside.
Jay is a published writer and photographer in a freelance capacity and he spent more than six years with PhilliesNation.com as a minor league contributor. As PhilliesNation grew and debuted its weekly television program in 2012, Jay was also regularly featured as a correspondent and panelist on the show.
Additionally, Jay co-hosted a successful internet radio show, known as The PhoulBallz Minor League Podcast, along with Tug Haines. That show, which featured live call-in interviews and in-studio guests would garner thousands of weekly downloads during its time in production.
During his time covering baseball, Jay has interviewed various players,
coaches and team personnel from the minor leagues to the Majors,
including All-Stars, Cy Young Award winners, team executives as well as
Hall of Famers.
