Thank you for visiting One Tool (OT) Baseball. If you’re a Twitter user, please follow @OT_Baseball.
A little bit about myself: I am a native of southern Illinois and lifelong fan of the game, particularly the St. Louis Cardinals. I have a wife and kids, enjoy playing and listening to music, and recently transitioned from legal practice to full-time legal writing.
How I expect the site to work: I don’t really know. I needed a place to articulate my thoughts about baseball. There will probably be a mix of short-form observations, longer research pieces, guest posts (hopefully), personal stories, and humor. I’m going to try as best I can to keep it all generally baseball-related. I’ll need readers before I worry about much else, but I hope that down the road my site can be a place where baseball fans with different interests both inside and outside of baseball can come together and find some middle ground. Please comment, share, recommend, troll, or do whatever you think might lead people to the site. If you’re interested in sharing your own thoughts in a post here, please feel free to contact me.
Friends and family have told me to start writing about baseball for over 20 years. This is my attempt.
