wait a moment


Hi there,

Are you looking for a consistent Major League Baseball content and columns, focusing on analyzing trades, teams, trends, players and player movement with a more analytical approach?

If you have those very, very, very specific guidelines for what you read, you’ve come to the right place.

Because writing about those very, very, very specific things about Major League Baseball happens to be my passion—a passion I want to share with people, namely you.

Here’s an iffy mug of me. Look, I’m not a robot!

  • Started Know Hitter in 2011 with the intent to write about said passion. However, at the time, I didn’t know that it was that specific part of baseball that I wanted to write about.
  • Spent time writing about other sports, like Italian and European football/soccer, the NBA and the NFL.

To this day, I remain a passionate fan of both soccer and basketball, and watch the sports regularly, but baseball was my first love sports wise, and will continue to be the sport that I’m most drawn to.

I’ve always written about it, but until lately, I hadn’t found the niche I wanted to occupy.

Over the years, my writing appeared on a number of different online publications (Bleacher Report, USA Today & FanSided to name a few) about a number of different topics (There is an article I wrote about the most entertaining walk-up songs in baseball. Yes, that exists).

Other, past places of work:
Emerald City Swagger
Motor City Bengals
World Soccer Talk

I continued to write about baseball as well. As of late, I spent two years and change as an editor at Motor City Bengals—FanSided’s Detroit Tigers website and one of the more prominent Tigers sites on the interwebs.

Over time, I developed—no, found—my passion for writing those very specific kinds of MLB columns and articles.

That’s why I’m back at Know Hitter full-time, to share my passion (i.e.) those articles with you, the reader.

Mission Statement

I’ve always operated with the mission statement to write the kind of pieces I’d want to read, and that’s what I’m going to continue to do. My hope, obviously, is that you’ll want to read them as well.

However, if you’re reading this, analytical baseball writing with a heavy sprinkle of columns about potential/hypothetical trades probably lights your proverbial fire or is your proverbial jam, as it were.

That’s what I’m going to write.

So settle in, bookmark the site, subscribe to our email list, follow the site (or myself) on Twitter. Do whatever to follow the site.

Because if you’re like me, you’ve been looking for this kind of writing on the internet, but haven’t quite found it with regularity.
