“I sincerely cannot imagine a greater opportunity or exciting chance to highlight all the great things athletes do here on the Cape,” Walsh said. “So much happens that goes unnoticed it’s what I do best: highlight the good things people achieve on the fields and courts and rinks. Digital news is the future and CapeCod.com is news for Cape Cod.”
Walsh has been a staff writer, photographer and editor for the Falmouth Enterprise, The Register, Old Colony Memorial and the Boston Globe, to name a few, and served as the first official photographer in the Cape Cod Baseball League.
