Dalton Johnson’s Work for July, 2015

buster

Now that I work for Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, my posts here on Life’s A Ball have been minimal, but my writing has not. As a Web Producer I am editing our expert reporters’ work for each Bay Area team and putting together the total package for the website. But, I am also writing Staff Reports without a byline. At the beginning of each month I will post all of the previous month’s Staff Reports that I wrote for CSN Bay Area for you to look back at. Below is my work from the month of July, 2015:
