Bill Hanstock is a Northern California native transplanted to the Los Angeles area. He's a lifelong baseball fan, but over the past few years has become a regular fanatic of all sports. Since he started writing at SB Nation, he has been alternately horrified and thrilled by how much he enjoys events like MLS and NASCAR.

He has a telecommunications degree from CSU Monterey Bay and is currently pursuing his MA at Cal State Los Angeles. He has written for print publications and online since 2000, joining the humor website Progressive Boink as a staff writer in 2006. Since then, he has written for On Sandwiches and Baseball Feelings, and has been a guest writer at With Leather on several occasions.

Bill couldn't be happier about being a part of SB Nation as an editor and contributor. You can listen to his podcast, Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, at Progressive Boink.
