About
I've been involved with sports for over 30 years (Collegiate Baseball Player, Life-long Sports Fan, 20+ years of Sports Betting). My love of the Indians started when I was 12 years old with the 1995 AL Champion team. (Who didn't love Albert Belle and Kenny Lofton?) I have always had a deep love for writing and my degree is in Sports Psychology! I love Jesus, my Family, and all things Sports!
