Educator, reader, writer, coach, lifetime baseball fanatic.

The Detroit Tigers and the Old English D represent my greatest passion and love for the game.

Grew up watching "Sweet Lou" and "Tram" turn the best-double plays in baseball while Gibby was hitting them off the right field upper deck facade at classic Tiger Stadium.

Pundits can talk about marketable cities all they want, but it doesn't get a whole lot better than the gritty sports of Detroit. Motown has so much soul for its sports teams. I wouldn't want to be a fan anywhere else.

    Hey J, what do you think of this? I see you're a very big Detroit writer, I'd like to hear your opinion on this:

    Realized that your most memorable game that you've attended was the Mike Utley thumbs up game. I've been lucky enough to meet Mike twice and he is the most inspiring person that I have ever met. Good choice on that one!

    I see you're a new writer here and we even tackled some similar subject matter with the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition ;) Anyway—thanks again for the note and keep up the great work.
