Meet the Bloggers: Bryan Mapes

When the Yankees-Orioles American League Division Series shifted to The Bronx for Game 3, we caught up with Braves fan Bryan Mapes to showcase his 3 Up, 3 Down blog as the latest subject of our new Meet the Bloggers video series. I’ve spent much of this season over at our MLB Fan Cave, and I know that Bryan, as one of the original Fan Cave applicants who submitted a video last winter, has not only continued to interact with friends he made among the nine Cave Dwellers, but also has been going strong with a blog that shows a lot of versatility from multiple contributors. It features good podcasts and voices from different perspectives and regions around the Majors. We’re glad to have them in the community and here’s our conversation in a rare quiet place at Yankee Stadium:

Many of you have asked to be featured in the MTB series, and we are doing our best to line up as many as possible at the ballparks where there still could be action before a World Series clincher. Please be sure to leave a comment here if you might be around a ballpark, and include your email. If you won’t be, then please sit tight as we’ll continue the series in the offseason but want to go the ballpark route first while there’s still time. – Mark


Great job Bryan, Love your enthusiasm!

Thanks Emma!

I wont be at any ball parks during the post season as my Seattle Mariners did not make it to the play offs….again. However I will be at the teams FanFest event January 26th and 27th and would love to do a Meet the Bloggers interview. I’d also do a walk through of the FanFest event from a fans perspective as well.

Thanks 9inningknowitall…remind as SEA FanFest gets closer please.

One of my favorite MLB bloggers was interviewed at Yankee Stadium during Game 3 (lucky guy). Great insight and a strong passion for the sport is displayed in this interview (and on 3 Up, 3 Down of course). Plus he gives me a little shout out… woohoo!

Thanks for the blog shout out, Bryan!

You won’t meet many bigger sports fans than Bryan, and I’m lucky enough to be able to consider him a friend.

Here’s to hoping I get a chance to see you again this year(the first time was in Arizona when I was a finalist for the MLB Fan Cave), but that won’t happen unless Verlander and the Tigers can pull off a win tonight. If you’re in town, let me know!

I was lucky enough to be featured for 3U3D on MLBlogs “Meet the Bloggers” while I was at Yankee Stadium. Special thanks to Mark Newman and Matt Latimer for helping with the great opportunity! Hope you enjoy!
