Just in time for Opening Day, former Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia is joining our team. What exactly, does that mean, though? Where will you see J.P. and what will he be doing? Better question is: What won’t he be doing?
J.P. is going to be playing a number of positions across all digital platforms. Here’s a brief list of things he’ll be involved with:
Doing video calls with athletes, including past and current Blue Jays
Sharing his expertise on all things Blue Jays with weekly videos
Co-hosting a Blue Jays podcast
Taking over Yahoo Canada Sports’ social channels to engage with fans during games
As our coverage continues to evolve J.P. may take on other roles, but for now this is what you’re going to see. J.P. joins an exciting cast of contributors that includes Team Canada alum Tim Smith, bringing fans a fresh new perspective on your favourite team. More athlete-perspective, more fan engagement, and more behind the scenes access.
Here at YCS we are excited to have J.P. on to share his expertise in an unfiltered, unbuttoned way. As the other half of the podcast and coverage in general, I know I’m excited.
We’re confident you’re going to enjoy this.
