Born on November 2, 1985 on the island of the Dominican Republic, Randy grew up playing all kinds of sports with his two older brothers. His father, a former minor leaguer for the Detroit Tigers, instill a love of the game at an early age. Of course, Randy simply wanted to watch his cartoons when he was younger but soon grew to appreciate the complexities of the chess game known as baseball.
At the age of 3 years old, Randy and his family moved to the great state of Massachusetts where Red Sox nation awaited them. However, Randy's father spent his teenage years in New York and had become a Mets fan. Therefore, Red Sox lore was never instilled in young Randy. With the Atlanta Braves playing on TBS Randy felt more drawn to this team that seem to always win, get the clutch hits, and pitch superbly! And thus his love of the Tomahawks developed in 1994.
Randy graduated from Beverly High School in 2004 and got his BA at Merrimack College in 2008 in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. However, a passion in writing was evident after taking some Creative Writing classes and realizing he enjoyed doing it.
He came across Bleacher Report a couple of months ago and felt this would be a good platform to offer his opinions on a subject he cannot stop talking about...The Atlanta Braves.
