It was almost a calendar year ago today that I proudly wrote an article about Enerio Del Rosario, the first player from any of my Dayton Dragons teams to make it to the Major Leagues. He appeared for the Cincinnati Reds before being designated for assignment and being traded to the Houston Astros late in [...]

I always felt one of the coolest parts of my job with the Dayton Dragons during my three seasons was watching the future of Major League Baseball. Sure, a very small percentage will actually make it to the big leagues and get even a “cup of coffee,” but each team was filled with so called [...]

For a guy that does not drink coffee, and cannot stand the taste of coffee flavored products, I have never wanted a cup so bad the last few years. Being a member of the baseball community, a “cup of coffee” does not mean what it sounds like. I know all you Seinfeld fans are thinking [...]

I respect what Major League Baseball has done the last few years to “clean up the game,” and try to eliminate all performance enhancing drugs. I understand that it can be a pain for a player to have to pee in a cup a few times a season at random times, and sit through numerous [...]

When gathering with buddies the other night, we were discussing the announcement of the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award to be announced tomorrow and the possibility of Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds winning the award.

I am very fortunate that to have some great friends. Our close group has been together for years, dating back from when we were kids, attending some of the same summer camps, and then high school. There has been some distance in the group starting with college, but we have stayed in great contact and [...]
