At the end of today, Monday, March 31st, the Community Voices blogs on Boston.com will be discontinued in conjunction with the upcoming splitting of content between Boston.com and Boston Globe. That signifies the end of On Deck on this platform, and I thought it was appropriate to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for coming here and checking out the content I have put out here for the last two plus years.
It is sad that it comes on the heels of the start of the baseball season, as Boston.com was an ideal platform for spouting out the stories of Red Sox and local prospects alike. But alas, all good things must come to end, and I must extend thanks to the Boston.com sports crew for their continued support. Also, a special thanks to Pete Abraham who was instrumental in driving traffic my way, giving me advice and providing untold support for my work.
Prior to starting the On Deck blog, I had done the exact same thing with a blog called Beyond Fenway. Although there isn’t a ton of time to probably get things set up properly, I do want to continue this work that I have done for the past 6 years, so I will reopen Beyond Fenway as a place where I can extend this work and provide you with some features, game stories and updates on your local prospects.
I also have my iron in a few additional fires at this time, including at MiLB.com where I will be handling their weekly notebooks for the Eastern League and the New York Penn League. So please check out my weekly columns there if you have the opportunity.
Otherwise, you can find out what I’m up to via my Twitter account (@Craig_Forde) and at the resurrected Beyond Fenway blog here.
Again, I sincerely appreciate all of you for making this possible and viable and fun and 100% worthwhile!
