I grew up to stories of Willie Mays, the Miracle Mets and the Bronx Zoo from my Pappy and—although my playing days never amounted to much—baseball has always remained my passion.
I moved to Boston from the Midwest nearly a decade ago and in that time I have come to both enjoy and loathe the hype and hysteria of living in the heart of Red Sox Nation.
The Twins are my team, a result of being born and raised in Iowa and attending college in Minnesota. Although I’d consider myself a baseball fan first and foremost and a Twins fan second.
In addition to years of rabid fandom, I also bring some quasi-legit writing chops to the table. I am a 2006 graduate of Minnesota State University with a degree in Journalism and minors in Creative Writing and Speech Communications.
My articles have been featured on numerous websites over the years and I’d love to conceitedly list them off—preferably in some smug font—but as it turns out I am: a) above tooting my own horn and b) kinda lazy.
When I’m not writing or scrounging the internet for baseball news I spend my time playing slow-pitch softball, watching baseball, reading, hanging out with my wife and my cat, and—because blogging doesn’t pay the bills—working at the MIT Libraries.
