I'd imagine for any baseball writer, coming to New York would represent a pinnacle achievement in their career.
In Andy's case, this is a return engagement, though now he's the star of the show.
As you can see below, Andy brings a wealth of talent to the job, and he'll already have a built-in following of die-hards salivating over his every word.
Andy Martino returns to the Daily News after one year as Phillies beat writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer. He began his journalism career as an intern here, covering nearly every sport and spending significant time reporting on the 2008 Mets. Before that, he spent three years teaching high school English in Brooklyn. A Rochester native, he is a graduate of Purchase College, SUNY and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
