About the Author
John Lumsden (Founder and Owner)
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I am currently attending Mississippi State Univeristy, studying Business Administration (concentrations in Accounting, Information Systems, and Marketing) with hopes of a career in the baseball industry with focus on statistics, baseball operations, and player development. I am a big supporter of baseball sabermetrics. With that said, I make sure to include key stats into each of my postings. I have been a baseball fan my whole life, but it wasn’t until freshman year of college that I truly fell in love with the game.
During the year of 2015 I made the decision to take a year off from school to accept a job as concessions manager for the KC class A advanced affiliate, the Wilmington Blue Rocks in Delaware, in which I was offered at the MiLB job fair in San Diego during the 2014 baseball Winter Meetings. I then continued on with Centerplate (concessions company with whom I worked for) to work at RFK Stadium in DC for three months. I then was an intern and statistical analyst for the Peninsula Pilots amateur baseball team in Hampton, VA for the 2016 summer, to just briefly describe my key experiences.
I write this blog to share my passion for the game, as I still belive that baseball is America’s past time, and the greatest game to ever be played. I may never had played the game on a competitive level other than tee ball as a kid, but I feel very connected to the game and look forward to learning something new about it everyday. The great thing about baseball, is that championships dont recquire a team of all-stars, but a team of good talent, with players who respect one another. A game that is about strategy and uniting the fans, that spreads throughout the world on a positive note, as America trys to do everyday as the greatest country in the world. “It is hard not to be romantic about baseball.”
One can also view some of my postings on Scoutables.com (a site with multiple writers sharing analytics on current players, the site is owned by Ari Kaplan and former Dodgers GM, Fred Claire). I also occasionally post vlogs (video blogs) and broadcast different MLB games on the site Rabble.TV.
