I was born and raised in Amarillo, Texas, home of Cadillac Ranch, dust storms and the 72-ounce steak. I graduated from Oklahoma State University, home of neon palm trees, bacon-cheese fries and red-dirt music. I’m writing about baseball and chasing other stories up in Detroit now, and if we’re not talking about BABIP or wRC+, the best stories combine people and their dreams, places and their histories, communities and the hopes and fears that shape us all.
