Kid Blogger Matt Nadel Bodes Well For Baseball’s Future

Sincerity.


That’s the secret sauce of success for collectors.

Yes, some envelopes will never get opened. Some players will never listen or look up for a collector.

However, when that moment comes, you better be the real deal. 

If you think getting an autograph might be tough, imagine being the kid who wants more.

Consider 15-year-old Matt Nadel, a young blogger who writes “Baseball With Matt.” He’s scoring interviews with names from baseball’s past and present. Best of all, he’s got a baseball book coming out this fall from Summer Game Books. I’m grateful to include the details he shared.

Q: You’re writing great baseball history features. How many people have you interviewed?

A: I have done over 50 interviews including 10 hall of famers, bud selig, george w bush, hal steinbrenner, billy crystal and many others. My favorite interview is probably the one that I did with jim palmer since it was my first live one.  here’s a link: 

Q: Do you write to the people you interview?

A: I have never written letters to any interviewee by the way.

Q: What’s a good question that works for you, no matter who you’re interviewing? (Some collectors are unsure about what to ask when they write to someone.)

A:  A question I usually ask is what sports did you play/watch as a kid? and who is your favorite hitter and pitcher in MLB history?

Q: Your passion for, and knowledge of, baseball is impressive. Some might say it’s unique from someone so young. Do you tell interviewees about your age before you connect?

A: Yes. they always know that I am 15 and the youngest baseball history pro blogger on MLB.com.

Thanks, Matt!
