About the Author
I am a
20 year member of SABR. A year ago I started the Spring Training Committee
for SABR. I am currently working for an Audio-Video, Computer rental Company.
I am a very die hard fan of the Anaheim Angels and have been for 32 years.
Did they really go to and win the World Series this year!! I grew up in Orange
County, CA. When I was young, before I was in high school, my mom worked
in the pressroom at Anaheim Stadium. She frequently got us free tickets to
the games. Earl Weaver once shoved a plate of food at her. I do however maintain
an interest as a historian in all phases of professional baseball. I saw
my first minor league baseball game at the age of 20, when as a member of
the USAF I went and saw the Albuquerque Dukes play. I once saw Ted Williams
at the Baseball Hall of Fame. I have written several books but, have yet
to get any of them published. My first book was "This Date in Minor League
Baseball History", my second "Minor League Baseball in the 1990s" and then
I wrote "This Date in Geographic History". Any one interested in receiving
a copy via E-mail please write. My wife and I live with our growing family
in Wildomar, CA (just 10 minutes from the Diamond @ Lake Elsinore).
A long membership in SABR and a trip to the National Convention (2003 the
convention will be in Denver, CO). I love to spend long periods of time on
the Internet at just about any baseball related site, some of my favorites
SABR.org. I also enjoy spending too much time
on various baseball mailing lists including the SABR-L, firstname.lastname@example.org,
SABRSpring@yahoogroups.com PacificCoastLeagueAAA@Yahoogroups.com and Midwest
letters to the editor and other email sent to our Gurus.
