From Alex Rodriguez's pursuit of 600 career home runs with the New York Yankees to LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh's inaugural season with the Miami Heat, Didier Morais has covered some of the most polarizing stories in sports.
Now the Red Sox beat writer for NESN.com, the Syracuse University graduate is entering his first season covering the club. He also makes broadcasted appearances to report on the Red Sox on New England Sports Network.
Before joining NESN, Morais spent roughly one year as a staff writer for the Houston Chronicle, where he covered over 200 high schools in the region and assisted with print and multimedia coverage of the 2011 Final Four.
His work has also appeared in The Boston Globe, The Miami Herald, CBSSports.com, MLB.com, CONCACAF.com, The Deseret News, The Post-Standard and The Home News Tribune.
Morais, who speaks Spanish fluently and is conversational in French and Portuguese, originally honed his writing and reporting skills at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in Syracuse University, graduating magna cum laude with a degree in newspaper and online journalism.
He was also a participant in the 2010 Sports Journalism Institute and is currently a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
