What is your greatest baseball moment,
either watching or playing? At the age of 13 we had won our district and state
championships for little league. After
the State championship we were a few wins for going to the Little League World
Series. I had to go with the family on a
three week vacation and the team lost in the next round. Was a great team and we won a lot of games.
When did you start playing for MSBL and how
did you hear about it? 2017 will be my sixth season in the HBL and fourth in
MSBL. I went to fill in on a softball
team with my brother and he was wearing a Pirates hat. That year the MLB Pirates had started off
great and I thought he jumped on the band wagon. When I said that to him he said he was
playing hardball. The next season I
joined the Duneland Pirates in the Hoosier Baseball League.
Do you still play? I do still play and
enjoy it very much.
What team and age bracket? I am now on the South Shore Blue Jays. Our age group is 28 and over.
What is the best thing about your league? The competition. We
have a few great teams and the rest of the teams can win each week. Every now and then the teams on the bottom
will knock off those top teams.
Do you participate in any MSBL national
have not participated in the tournaments but am looking to get to one very
Questions just for fun:
Who is your favorite player of all time and
why? Mark McGuire. Watching him drop bombs as a kid was fun.
Are there any additional personal comments
you wish to add about your playing or life thus far? Being the President
of the HBL has been fun. I also am
heavily involved with State Park Little League in Chesterton. It’s a great program for the kids and where I
played as a kid. That takes up Monday
thru Saturday and leaves Sunday as my day to play ball. Being around the other managers and players
is a great experience and Sundays is for the guys to play ball but the wives
and kids get to get out too and enjoy the day together.
Are there any comments about MSBL you wish
to share? Three
years ago, when I became president, Steve Sigler and others at MSBL helped with the
learning curve. We have had players move
away and when I hear that I send them the links to the nearest MSBL league to
their new homes. MSBL has been a huge
help and made the HBL a stronger league.
