A Trip to Seoul as a Member of the Media

The first two weekends of September will be ones I won’t long forget. I had the opportunity to go to Seoul and watch the 18U World Baseball Championships. Not only did I get to watch, but I was a member of the press. Through my other website, BaseballdeWorld.com, I was able to secure a press credential.

Sadly due to the lack of the ability to take vacation, I was only able to go for the weekend action. That being said, I had an amazing time.

I love writing about baseball, talking baseball, and generally anything baseball related. While at the games I sat in the media room where I was armed with my laptop writing away about the action on the field for my site. It was a great experience and one I’d love to relive. I always wondered what it was like to be a sports journalist, and while I didn’t have the deadlines and stress that I am sure comes with the job, I enjoyed my time.

For a couple of the games, I took to the stands to watch the action with my friend Kihoon who lives in Seoul. That was a lot of fun watching some great games and getting to talk a little baseball.

However, the best part of the whole deal was getting to see the USA win a gold medal in baseball. I’ve been fortunate to see a lot of great sporting events, including the world championships in track and field where I saw multiple American gold medals and some world records broken. But the biggest thrill for me personally was watching the USA win a gold medal in my favorite sport.

I enjoyed being a part of the media for a few days, even if a lot of people might look down on bloggers. I enjoyed writing about the games and wish I could do more of it. Being at the game and getting a feeling for the action and writing about it is so much better than watching it on TV or reading box scores to write about a games. If I got paid for it, I think I would be in heaven.

I don’t know where I’ll be next year, but no matter where I’ll be I’ll be writing about baseball even if its only for my site.

I love this game!

You can see a short video I made of the championship game as the US won the gold medal on my YouTube page.

There are three things in my life which I really love: God, my family, and baseball. The only problem - once baseball season starts, I change the order around a bit. ~Al Gallagher, 1971
