I love baseball and numbers - what luck that my childhood favorite team ended up being the perfect love of both of these obsessions! The origin of my childhood love of the A's began when I was a newborn and my dad caught a ball at a game.

Having spent the majority of the past 18 years of my life in Cincinnati, I have overcome my initial hatred of the Reds that began when I moved to Cinci in 1990 to have my A's swept at the hands of the Reds. I have overcome this first impression and am also a big Reds fan.

I now live in Portland, unfortunately away from the MLB market - I have to rely on SB Nation to fill my baseball appetite!
