The legendary sportswriter Dick Schaap once said, “I wanted to be a sportswriter because I loved sports and I could not hit the curve ball, the jump shot, or the opposing ball carrier.”
My guest for this episode of the podcast can sympathize with Schaap’s sentiment.
Tom Reisenweber always wanted a career in sports. He just never imagined it would be as a sportswriter. Yet , here he is covering all manner of high school, college, and professional sports for the Erie Times News, his hometown newspaper.
Tom is one of the best and most dedicated beat writers in the Eastern League covering all things Sea Wolves.
We talked about Tom’s unusual journey to sportswriter, a typical day in his life covering the SeaWolves, and the direction of the team both on and off the field.
So sit back and enjoy episode two of the Minor Conversations Podcast with my guest Tom Reisenweber.
