Bob Flynn

Bob Flynn grew up in upstate New York as a fan of the Montreal Expos and has been a baseball fan all his life. He attended Florida Southern College, and while he was unable to play baseball there, he did the next best thing: cover the team for two years while working in the sports information department. He lives in Gloucester, Va., with his wife and two children. His hobbies include baseball, soccer, bike riding, racquetball and most sports.
