The Final Out of Three Up, Three Down
The End is here. It's October 2nd. The final out of the game. With visions of Spring Training just on the horizon, we take a breath. The Season is over, but next year has just begun.
As the New Year approaches, we all at Three Up, Three Down would like to thank you for your readership and enthusiasm over the last year and a half. This passion project has never felt like work and has been one of the most fun experiences I have had in my life.
I’ve spoken about this before, but the main idea behind starting 3 Up, 3 Down, came as a way to curb my gambling addiction. I was ALL-IN on Draftkings, you guys. While my relationship with Daily Fantasy Sports ebbed and flowed, my love for the game of Baseball grew to ever-extending lengths. Towards the beginning of the 2016 season, it felt like my appreciation for the sport was going to explode. That explosion was 3 Up, 3 Down.
A year and a half later we now have over 17 writers with more joining us every day. This was once a one-man endeavor and has grown to become a full team with a stacked lineup.
We moved from only covering baseball to covering Football, Soccer, Hockey, Basketball and even Curling. That’s right. Name another Sports site that has a Curling writer. … I’ll wait. We’ve broadened our horizons over the past year and a half, and now we move on to even broader horizons and bigger goals. As wonderful as that all is, it means we leave behind 3 Up, 3 Down in order to grow.
As of last night at 11:59pm, Three Up, Three Down will stop publication. The site will still remain there as a memory of where we came from, but we will all be moving on. The decision to move the site was not an easy one, but it has definitely been an exciting one.
Thank you for reading, thank you for following, and thank you for joining.
Stay Tuned for the next chapter….
Until then, this has been Justin Colombo with 3 Up, 3 Down, putting it in the books.
