BARRIE, ON, September 13, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Dear Mr. Fantasy baseball podcast has announced a partnership with the website Fantasy Baseball Crackerjacks in an effort to provide fantasy baseball information across a multi-media platform.
With fantasy sports growing in popularity annually, there has been an increasing need for more information on the topic. Fantasy sports now account for approximately $4 billion in annual economic impact across the sports industry.
The Dear Mr. Fantasy podcast began in January 2012 with Chris McBrien hosting the show. A permanent co-host was introduced in May 2012 with the addition of the 'Fantasy Doctor', an anonymous baseball injury expert. Fantasy Baseball Crackerjacks began in October 2011 and features multiple writers all providing unique insights into baseball from a fantasy gaming perspective.
"Fantasy baseball information is usually distributed online through either a website or a podcast. With this partnership, we are aiming to provide a multi-media source of information which ultimately benefits the end user", states Chris McBrien, founder and co-host of the Dear Mr. Fantasy podcast. "The more options we can offer the audience, the more value we can deliver".
In addition to providing fantasy baseball discussions and advice, both the podcast and website often take a humorous approach to their subject matter, providing entertainment as well as information.
"We love writing about fantasy baseball", states Clave Jones, one of the founders of the Fantasy Baseball Crackerjacks website. "We've long wanted to expand into other areas such as podcasting, but didn't know where to begin. Meanwhile, we had developed a friendship with and a respect for the work of the Dear Mr. Fantasy guys. They turn out an awesome fantasy baseball podcast every week. At that point it became obvious: let's team up".
The website is updated daily whereas the podcast is recorded weekly on Sunday nights and is available through a wide range of podcast channels including iTunes, Podcast Pickle, MirPod and Podcast Alley, just to name a few.
