Owner of 5 beautiful dogs. My Avatar is in memory of my best friend Louie who I lost in 2012 at the all too young age of 6. Our last game together was the fantastic comeback against the Angels of all teams.

Love the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cleveland Indians. Love to talk baseball and am respectful to all opinions. Baseball has carried me through many bad times, it has crushed my spirit many times, but it has always been there with me.
