NY Sports Day History & Accolades

Launched in 2004 by Editor-In-Chief Joe McDonald, we cover all local teams (Mets and Yankees, Giants and Jets, Knicks and Nets and the Devils, Islanders and Rangers), as well as their minor league affiliates. Over the years, we have become the one independent online outlet credentialed by all nine of the major New York sports teams.

“I think it’s an all-encompassing guide to being a sports fan in New York. The site exudes the passion for each team that any individual fan would find both engaging and entertaining.” – Alan Hahn – Newsday

“Joe McDonald has done a great job growing NY Sports Day from its roots as MetsOnline.net. The site continues to give readers exclusive content each and every day, and expands its reach seemingly by the minute.” – Bryan Hoch – Mets Inside Pitch and former owner of Mets Online

“NY Sports Day does an excellent, exhaustive job of covering the New York City sports scene. I also enjoy the writer’s interviews; I learn stuff about my friends that I didn’t even know!” – Ken Rosenthal – The Sporting News

“I really enjoy the coverage of the minor league teams more than anything else. It’s great to see feature stories on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers and Long Island Ducks – stories that you just can’t find anywhere else on the web. I also enjoy the profiles of the broadcasters and writers who cover all of our New York sports teams – it gives you an inside look at what really makes them tick.” – Chris King – Broadcaster New York Islanders and Long Island Ducks

“If stories like [the ones John Buro wote about the show] couldn’t keep us on the air, I guess nothing could. After I read them I found myself thinking, ‘Geez, who are these guys? I’d like to listen to them myself.’” – Former ESPN Radio host  columnist Wally Matthews.

“Joe [McDonald] has a knack for writing short, yet informative columns around great quotes. Between him and Adam Rubin at the Daily News, young writers can learn a lot about this style.” – Matt Cerrone – MetsBlog.com

“To me, [NY Sports Day] is like watching an independent film as opposed to a big Hollywood blockbuster, and much like that situation, it’s the smaller guy that does the better job.” – Mitch Beck – Blueshirt Bulletin Magazine
