Originally from the Chicago area, somehow living in Tampa, Florida. My father was from New York and passed the Giants on to me at a young age. I grew up to stories of Mays, Irvin, Rhodes, and Durocher. From there it was on to Marichal, McCovey, and the Alous. I was an umpire for 20 years and learned under MLB umpires. There is no problem in the world that can't be solved by my meatballs.
