Fansided

Joel Reuter

Joel is a lifelong baseball fan and a full-time MLB writer living in Chicago. He was born in the suburb of Elgin, IL, and now he can hear Wrigley Field from his kitchen window. Don't confuse him for some lost Cubs homer, though. He loves all things baseball and looks forward to engaging with an informed and passionate Giants fan base.
