A      berts ball 1

By Chuck Booth (Lead Baseball Analyst/Website Owner):

All of us hardcore fans have seen the MLB Fan Cave for the last few years.  Heck, if it wasn’t for the MLB accepting applications for the Season 1 – I personally would have never joined Twitter, interacted with winners Mike O’ Hara and Ryan, before eventually meeting the MLB Reports Founder (Jonathan Hacohen) through conversing with those guys over my baseball travel book.  Jonathan did a book review for me, then asked me to guest blog for him during the 2012 World Series.  1 year and half later, I bought the website, meanwhile our site has continued a friendship with the Cave Dwellers from the 1st 2 seasons.  Last year, we interviewed Eddie Mata – and did a follow up story with Mike O ‘ Hara on life after the Cave.

A few months ago, I came across a genuine fan of the LA Dodgers and baseball in general.  Thomas (Aaron) Roberts has since been our Dodgers Correspondent here.  I can tell you that the man loves baseball and anything to do with it.  I never even knew he applied for the MLB Fan Cave in 2013, then last week he sent me a link that he was a top 52 finalist. 

This is no small feat and any of us would love to be in Roberts shoes.  I will do anything within my power to help him along, because he is a deserving person to be sent to New York.  Just by watching his video entry, it is abundantly clear that he belongs at the Fan Cave.  So please click the link and then after viewing, read the interview I conducted with Thomas (Aaron) Roberts afterwards.

Who is Eddie Mata? Inside the Mind and Baseball Soul of the 2012 MLB Fan Cave Finalist

Monday February 27, 2012

Jonathan Hacohen (MLB reports):  In life, we experience certain moments- certain events, which stay with us. Which stick it in our minds for many years after they occur. I experienced that this evening, when I finally got to place a call to Eddie Mata. After weeks of e-mails and twitter exchanges, I got to speak to Eddie in real-time. Eddie Mata. On the phone with MLB reports. A night that I will remember for years to come.

I know what your next question may be.  Who the heck is Eddie Mata? Well, if you have been living in a cave this winter, let me fill you in on my latest interview. Actor Michael Rapaport knows who he is.  So does screenwriter Dana Stevens, actors Jon Lovitz and Peter Dante, Miko Brando and a host of others. All of these famous international stars know the name Eddie Mata. Now it’s time that you get to know Eddie Mata as well. To know Eddie is to love him.  Read the rest of this entry

Eddie Mata: Top-50 Finalist for the 2012 MLB Fan Cave

Tuesday February 14, 2012

MLB reports:  If you are a fan of baseball, then surely you know about the MLB Fan Cave. Last year, in the inaugural edition of the Cave, Mike O’Hara and Ryan Wagner got to spend the whole MLB season in the Cave. Two baseball fans, two lucky winners of the Fan Cave contest got to live out their baseball dream. Staying in New York city, having every MLB game playing on many televisions in their domain.  It is how baseball was meant to be watched and lived! Now for 2012, MLB is looking for their next cave dwellers- which they will pick 6 lucky contestants to be in the cave this year. One of the lucky finalists for the role is Eddie Mata.

For Eddie to advance to the final 30, he needs as many votes as he can get…you can vote all day and everyday as much as you can until Feb 22. To vote for Eddie, click on this link below and it will lead for a vote and you can see his video audition:

I have enjoyed getting to know Eddie over the past few days. We started off by speaking on Twitter and then exchanging e-mails. The man is a riot to the say the least. He can crack jokes with the best of them- and dishes as well as he takes jabs. All in good fun of course, as any true-blooded baseball fan knows. Eddie is one of the lucky ones. He was picked as a top-50 finalist for the MLB Fan Cave from 22,000 entries. If you like statistics, those are incredible odds. Now Eddie is working towards being part of the final 30 contestants, who will be going to Arizona spring training for the MLB competition to be chosen to be a part of the MLB Fan Cave.

To support Eddie, you can “like” his Facebook page:  Eddie Mata for MLB FanCave 2012. You can also follow Eddie on Twitter (@EddieMata). Eddie would love to hear from you, so feel free to send him your comments and of course, talk baseball!


Good luck to Eddie on his quest to join the MLB Fan Cave and we look forward to seeing you in New York this season!
