BASEBALL DIGEST HONORED WITH FOLIO:’s COVETED EDDIE AWARD
Iconic Publication’s May-June 2020 Issue Recognized For Editorial Excellence
Wednesday, September 23, 2020 – The May-June 2020 issue of Baseball Digest—which marked the first time a woman in Baseball has been pictured in a major-league uniform on the cover of any nationally-distributed magazine—has been honored with Folio:’s coveted Eddie Award. The annual award recognizes excellence in engaging content and gorgeous design across all sectors of the publishing industry.
“This is an incredible honor for a 79-year-old publication which we re-imagined in 2018,” said Editor-in-Chief Rick Cerrone. “It would not have been possible without the excellent work of our editorial, art and photography contrbutors.”
Folio:’s annual awards program is the most comprehensive and prestigious of its kind in the publishing industry. A panel of more than 300 publishing executives narrowed thousands of entries into a pool of roughly 1,000 finalists. In total, 300 awards were given out across 47 categories.
Baseball Digest, which was honored in the consumer, sports/recreation category, was the only sports magazine to win an award this year and it is the first award won by the magazine in its 79 years of publishing.
