I didn’t plan it this way, but if I was going to pick the subject of my final Beckett Baseball column it definitely would have been about thrift shopping.
Thrifting is the subject of my current column, which is on newsstands now in Beckett Baseball Issue #116, which features likely AL MVP Josh Donaldson on the cover. And as it turns out, this appears to be my final column.
Just days after submitting the piece I learned that Chris Olds, who had been the editor of said magazine for almost seven years, was moving on from his position. And this change in scenery for him likely meant the end of my column.
It was a fun run that lasted almost two years and essentially fulfilled my childhood dream of writing for the magazine that I grew up reading. I do appreciate the opportunity that Chris gave me when he was the editor. I wish him well in the future.
As for me, while the column has come to an end, this basically means that I can get back to writing more stuff here.
I’d be a liar if I said I wasn’t holding back here so that I didn’t burn material for column that was going to be published.
Thank you all for your continued readership. I’ll get back to writing more here shortly. In the mean time you can follow me on Twitter @cardboardicons
