Hometown: Grand Island, NY
Strat-O-Matic background: About four years of solitaire play on the computer as well as the occasional card tournament with friends.
Most memorable Strat-O-Matic moment: I have two. 1980 Don Sutton's no-hitter vs. Buffalo News columnist Jerry Sullivan's 1976 Pirates, from a Jacksonville, Fla., hotel prior to Super Bowl XXXIX. Faced the minimum. ... And a 3-2 85 Mets loss to Jerry's 64 Braves, in which my Mets left an amazing 17 runners on base in eight innings and had allowed only one hit until the ninth -- a two-run home run by Warren Spahn.
Favorite Baseball Team: New York Mets & Cleveland Indians
Did You Know? Born and raised in Grand Island, NY, where I live now with my wife and Redbirds Chief Operating Officer Carolyn. I'm 34 years old and have been married for about a year and a half (as of July 2006). My co-host on the radio (from 3-7 pm weekdays) tells me that because I have joined this league my marriage is doomed.
