Hello, my name is Ben Hall. I am from Baltimore, Maryland. Just yesterday, I started writing for Gaslamp Ball. I am very grateful that Aaron Denick gave me the opportunity to write for such a prominent website.
At the end of my senior year of high school, I decided that sports journalism was what I wanted to do with my life. So I started my own website where I would message big name athletes and do interviews with these athletes, then write a story about them. The website is www.bhjournalist.com.
I would also reach out to organizations and teams trying to get to an event or practice that I could cover. I was only able to cover one baseball game because no players and only one team were able to get back to me. But baseball has always my favorite sport. I currently attend Garrett College in McHenry, Maryland and pitch for their baseball team.
Covering baseball has always been a huge goal of mine.
Last week, I reached out to the Gaslamp Ball and sent them the stories I have wrote, hoping they would get back to me.
After talking with Aaron, I was excited to know the I was now a writer for the site.
