I grew up in South Dakota, not exactly a baseball hotbed. I moved to Denver close to a decade ago and have become a Rockies junkie. I'm not going to lie and tell you I thought someday I would be a major leaguer. In Little League, I never batted above the Mendoza Line. It must run in my family because my younger brother did the impossible and struck out in tee ball; that's why I choose just to write about it.
