James Wagner of the New York Times has quickly become one of the best sportswriters in America. He’s technically a baseball writer, but that title doesn’t do him justice.

He has a keen eye for a good story, plenty of curiosity and a masterful ability to deliver superb prose. The son of a Nicaraguan mother and American father, is one of America’s must-reads.

James Wagner spent an hour with Russ Ortiz and Jesus Ortiz discussing his career in the fourth episode of Digging Deep. He broke down how he approaches his craft, his life story and the highs and lows along the way.

Every aspiring sportswriter should listen to Wagner’s story and his approach.
