About the Author
BRUCE BASKIN has been a baseball fan ever since he went to a Seattle Pilots game in 1969. He later attended a tryout for the Seattle Mariners, where the only two things preventing the M's from signing him to a contract were his lack of hitting and fielding. Bruce has been a public relations director for a number of amateur hockey teams, a semipro football team and a sprint car racetrack. He's been a radio sportscaster since the 1970's, covering hydroplane racing, prep basketball and football, Junior hockey and semipro baseball.

Bruce BaskinAt one time Bruce operated VivaBeisbol.Net (some articles from the old site are here in Baseball Guru), which was the only English-language website dedicated to pro baseball in Mexico; and worked for a radio station in Centralia, Washington, where he served as a newscaster, sportscaster and disc jockey.

Currently, Bruce is Editor/Producer of BASEBALL MEXICO at Radio Miami International. He operates the realted BBM (Baseball Mexico) blog:, where you can read whatever is top of his mind at any gievm time.
