It’s time for Boys of Spring to recognize some great Cubs websites, something I had planned on doing earlier when spring training was still going on. Unfortunately I didn’t get time to put together the awards video until now, better late, than not at all. With the Cubs season nearly two weeks underway these fine websites are geared up and bringing you all things Cubs. This video may help you find a new place or two on the interwebs to enjoy as the baseball season progresses. As you may know these awards (other than the Ryno) were decided by a panel, who looked at many different components, some of which included, ease of use, depth of coverage, community, design, and content. The Ryno award for fan favorite was decided by a fan vote during spring training.
Many great Cubs websites were nominated. Although some of the nominees did not win an award this year, they are all quality sites with plenty to offer. We will look at expanding the categories for next year’s awards, perhaps to include podcasts and other areas that were not represented in these six awards. There are also many other fine Cubs fan websites that were not nominated. At some point in the near future, I will blog about some of those as well. So finally, here are ALL the winners of the 2012 BOS-BCS Awards. Many thanks to Cubs Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins, as well as Cubs Announcer’s Pat Hughes and Len Kasper for helping out with the awards!
