Name: AlexAge: 24Location: DetroitFavorite Team(s): Detroit TigersTeam(s) You Dislike: I don't really actively dislike any team. Well, okay, probably the White Sox.Favorite Player(s): Vance Wilson, Justin Verlander, Joel Zumaya, Curtis Granderson, Jair Jurrjens, Dan Haren, Mike Piazza, Kyle Farnsworth, have recently taken notice of Jonathan Papelbon, and that he's quite insane.Player(s) You Dislike: I don't really dislike any players, tbh.Favorite Ballpark(s): Comerica Park obviously, and BankOne Ballpark/Chase Field. Well, the only two I've ever been to. lol.What's One of Your Favorite Baseball Memories? Obviously Magglio's walkoff HR to win the 2006 ALCS, and the second to last game of the 2003 season, when the Tigers avoided tying the 1962 Mets' record for W/L.Any Final Words? Tigers in '08!
Name: LissaAge: 28Location: WisconsinFavorite Team(s): Milwaukee Brewers (what can I say? I'm a homer!)Team(s) You Dislike: New York Yankees (sorry houseofknaus...)Favorite Player(s): Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Jim Gantner (former 2nd baseman for the Brewers), Gorman Thomas (former DH), Prince Fielder, and pretty much any insane closer. Again, what can I say?Player(s) You Dislike: Barry BondsFavorite Ballpark(s): The Old Busch Stadium, Comerica Park, and Miller Park. Granted, those are the only three baseball stadiums I've been to that weren't named Milwaukee County Stadium, but...XDWhat's One of Your Favorite Baseball Memories? Going to the Brewers/Giants game this summer when Bonds was at 754. I have a very blurry picture of a sign that thanked Bonds for ruining baseball, and 3/4 of my section had a sheet of 8 by 10 paper with a giant asterisk on it and were waiving it at Bonds during his final at-bat.Any Final Words? If anyone has any time, pick up either Ron Luciano's book "The Umpire Strikes Back" or Ken Kaiser's book "Planet of the Umps". Those are two of my favorite baseball books, and proof that you have to be a little goofy to be an umpire. XD
