About Sully Baseball
This is the creative portfolio for writer, video producer and comedian Paul Francis Sullivan (a.k.a. “Sully.)
The site will serve as a hub for original writings, video work and 365 daily podcast, all about Sully’s unique take on the game, personalities and business of baseball. It will also act as a portfolio used towards the completion of a Masters of Arts in Strategic Communications at Washington State University.
As a creator of original baseball content, he is the creator and host of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast. Every single day since October 24, 2012, he posts an original episode of comedic yet passionate takes, analysis and observations of the game he loves. Guests have included All Star pitcher Sean Doolittle and former big league stars Ellis Valentine, Rudy May and Ellis Valentine. Sully’s original videos have been featured on Deadspin, NBC Sports and Yahoo Sports and can be seen on the Sully Baseball channel on YouTube .
He has been a contributing baseball writer for USA Today, Baseball Digest, The Hardball Times, Time Out New York and Bleacher Report. Sully has appeared in the HBO Sports documentaries “Curse of the Bambino” and “Reverse the Curse of the Bambino” as well as on ESPN2’s Cold Pizza and NESN’s “Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey“.
Sully, a native New Englander living in California, is an Emmy nominated television producer who has previously produced such shows as “Axe Men“, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and “The Bonnie Hunt Show“. An award-winning filmmaker, he directed the feature film “I’ll Believe You” as well as many short films including “Sergi” as featured on PBS’ “Independent Lens“. He has performed stand up comedy all across the United States and appeared on the TV shows “Monk” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” as well as the upcoming movie “The Wrong Stuff.”
As the podcast approaches 1,000 episodes in July and the writing continues since the 2006 season, Sully hopes to find either a media platform to monetize the site or to attract enough sponsors to make it self sufficient.
