I’m a San Francisco Bay Area native, and I’ve been actively following my favorite team (the Giants) since 1978 (they had their first winning season in a while that year and had some exciting young players like Jack Clark and Bob Knepper). The Giants fortunes didn’t really turn around until 1986, but I was hooked in ’78 and have been a major league baseball fan ever since. I’m also a compulsive reader and have read a great many books about baseball over the last 30 years. I was also a history major in college, and I think that an understanding of the history of the game adds a lot to my commentary. I Hope you enjoy it.
