Who am I?
My name is Amanda. On a map, my hometown is listed as Reading, PA, but to local sports fans, it’s known as Baseballtown.
My whole life, I have been a sports fan and am proud to call myself a fourth generation Phillies fan (although sometimes the team makes that painful to admit). Add to that six years of softball experience, twelve years of tennis, and twelve summers working in a minor league baseball stadium, and it only seems natural to make sports a lifelong pursuit.
Aside from my love of baseball and tennis, I am an avid reader and writer, and I enjoy photography and filmmaking. Now that you know a little bit about me, let me share with you a little bit about what you will find on this site!
What will you discover?
The goal of this site is to provide information about the sport of baseball and the impact it has had and will continue to have on the city of Reading.
- I will take you inside what has earned this city the name of Baseballtown and all of the interesting personalities involved.
- Go behind the scenes of Baseballtown Charities and their different projects.
- Learn about the inner workings of the Reading Fightin’ Phils.
- Get to know the people involved with keeping baseball in Reading through various profiles of Baseballtown Charities members, Reading Fightin’ Phils office staff, and more.
