Royals General Manager Jody Peterson was very happy to have Josh on board.
“As a program we want to provide as much up to date information as possible to our fans and additionally find a way to inform and share the stories of the past. To have Josh follow our team for 2013 and be able to provide fans with more information about the players and program, past and present is a great opportunity.

So for all of you out there who don’t know me, I am Josh Fleck. I’m a 25 year old who will be graduating from St. Thomas University in October with a major in Communications and a minor in Journalism.
I will be following your Fredericton Peterbilt DQ Royals for the remainder of the season letting you guys know just how they’re doing, and giving you some insider access to the team. Letting you know what these guys do when they aren’t on Baseball Hill.
Other than my scholastic credentials to fill this role, you may find yourself asking what makes me qualified to give you guys the inside scoop. Well I have blogged for Sportsnet FanFuel, I have been writing for the sports section of The Brunswickan for five years and this past year saw me take the helms as Sports Editor (check thebruns.ca for some of my other work), this summer makes it a cool 21 straight years that I’ve been playing baseball, and the only thing on this planet I love more than baseball is my grandmother, who got me started with this sport.
I’m a diehard Blue Jays fan and follow the cardinal rule that I can’t like anyone else within the division, despite being a big Manny Machado fan. You’ll also see me cruising around with my Cincinnati Reds hat (my National League team).
I’m super excited to undertake this and am really looking forward to bringing all Royals’ news to you loyal fans out there. If you feel the need to get ahold of me, you can always hit me up on Twitter @jfleck10. Here’s to a great season, and Go Royals!
