|| Was born in Hinsdale, IL. Died there at age 2 minutes. Was resuscitated and spent the next week in intensive care. Moved to Oxford, MI at age 2 months. Been there since. Mother left when I was 5. Raised by my dad. Played baseball since age 5 working my way up to Federation/Tournament teams. Playing varsity in high school, shortstop and pitching. Junior year ERA was 2.56. Made Michigan Coach's Allstate 1st Academic Team. I like to downhill mountain bike, downhill ski, and fly fish. My dad grew up biking, whitewater canoeing, fishing, and horseback riding in Wisconsin and says it is a great place. It has to be better than Michigan. Everybody here is trying to get out.
