Baseball captured my heart from the very first time I set my eyes on a Major League Baseball field. It was the Summer of 1982 and I was eleven years old. My parents took my older brother and me on a three day weekend to Boston and my first two major league games were at Fenway Park. The Red Sox played the Oakland A’s in the first game and Seattle Mariners the second. I have been in love with baseball ever since (although I became a Yankees fan).

I came up with the name “The Titanium Spine” name because I have a degenerative spine. Chronic pain resulting in several spine fusions and other health problems have caused me to transition from machine work, to being a school bus driver (I loved that job) and now I’m again reinventing myself, writing about baseball. I have titanium screws, rods and plates up and down my spine. It’s as much a part of me as baseball is.

Thank you for visiting my site. I enjoy the research, planning out and writing each article, and my goal is to provide accurate, fair and credible content for my audience. I hope you will enjoy reading my work as much as I enjoy writing it for you.
