About: I grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago and have been a Cubs fan since I began watching them on WGN when I was four years old. I also frequently attended Kane County Cougars games when I was younger, so I come into this job already possessing some familiarity with the Midwest League. I attended Indiana University and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism in 2015. I covered baseball a little at Indiana, including one game in which Kyle Schwarber turned on a fastball and hit the longest home run I have ever seen. After graduating from IU, I worked toward a master's degree at the University of Maryland and graduated from there in 2017. While at Maryland, I covered the Terrapins baseball team for Maryland Baseball Network, a student-run site dedicated exclusively to the baseball team. In the last few years, I have become an avid student of sabermetrics. I have always enjoyed numbers and statistics, especially as they relate to baseball and I find that the new ways to measure performance more precisely can be extremely valuable in evaluating players objectively. I'll slip some advanced statistics into my writing when I think they can enhance a story, but I'll always explain the number in question to make it easy to understand.
