Patrick's Story
Growing up in urban Philadelphia, I was the kid that wrote stories about pickup Wiffle ball games. I also kept statistics for a stick-ball league where we used the trunk of an old Buick as second base. 

Fact is, I knew once I entered college that the fastest way for me to reach the majors would be to write about baseball rather than play. A poor man’s second baseman, I ended my freshman year in college by trading in my batting gloves for a Dell laptop. At that point, the Philadelphia Baseball Review was born.

Now, I'm a Philadelphia-based entrepreneur and have parlayed my love of baseball and writing into into a gig as a baseball writer.

    Baseball is truly an amazing and intriguing game. We once played the game in Washington D. C. then we didn't. We sent all the Senators to Minnesota. The team in Montreal got exposed so they send them to Washington. The team in Minnesota had twins.
