Happy (Black) Friday

Updating My Bio

I'm a Staff Writer once again for Pinstripe Alley.

It's a nice thing to be able to go home again. I feel really honored that the staff agreed to let me come back as an analyst and to write on my own schedule.

I'm looking forward to really dedicating my baseball work to Pinstripe Alley and focusing ...andalittlewine... on books and my little life adventures.
