About Mike Ashmore

Mike Ashmore is a 28-year-old sportswriter who covers the Somerset Patriots, Trenton Devils and Trenton Thunder for the Hunterdon County Democrat, a weekly paper based in Central New Jersey, and The Trentonian, the top daily newspaper in Trenton.  Ashmore is in his ninth year of covering professional sports, and his sixth season as a beat writer for Trenton teams.

This is his first year covering the Trenton Steel, but second season covering indoor football, as he covered the Philadelphia Soul in 2005 for a local radio station.  He started this blog in March of 2011 as a way to provide up-to-the-minute gameday coverage of the SIFL’s newest team.

Ashmore has extensive experience covering professional sports.  He’s covered eight different MLB teams, eight different NHL teams, three different NBA teams and the NFL’s New York Giants.  In addition, he has experience covering the UFC and NCAA’s Princeton Tigers, as well as countless trips to minor league arenas and stadiums across the country.

However, the majority of his professional experience is in covering baseball, and he’s probably best known for his popular “Thunder Thoughts” blog.  A versatile sports personality, Ashmore’s work has been seen on NBA.com, his voice heard on WFAN and his videos seen on MLB Network.

Ashmore has covered over 850 professional games and interviewed everyone from World Series and Super Bowl MVP’s to NASCAR champions and NBA MVP’s.  He’s covered six championship teams, two no-hitters and has interviewed over 475 Major League Baseball players.
