I was born and raised in West Lafayette, Indiana. There is no definitive baseball team to root for in Indiana, so I came to love the Mets through inheritance: my grandpa moved to New York City in 1951 and became a Giants fan, and my dad was born in the city and grew up on the east coast a Mets fan. He passed that tradition on to me, and the rest is history. Recently graduated from Hope College in Holland, Michigan, now a graduate assistant in broadcasting and production at Columbus State University in Georgia, chasing the sportscaster dream. What could be more Amazin'?
