Right Field Fog was born in the summer of 2007, the days when Gordon Beckham and Buster Posey were roaming Cape League fields. It was a heck of a time to start. As one of two Cape League blogs that popped up around the same time, Right Field Fog aims to provide context for Cape League summers, with an emphasis on in-season daily coverage. And the name? It was sparked by memories of long summer nights on the Cape, when the fog could make a baseball game feel like magic.
Will Geoghegan is a sportswriter from Louisville, Kentucky who now lives in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. From the time he was six months old, he has spent all-too-brief parts of every summer on the Cape. Not surprisingly, then, he believes in baseball, the ocean and the hanging curveball. He doesn’t get paid to write about the Cape League but wishes he did. He also felt the need to write his bio in the third person. For more, visit willgeoghegan.com
