I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, number one Barry Bonds, and a hater of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tates Jr., Juan Soto, and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved a World Championship for them for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, soccer, basketball, and any other game that involves a ball or ball. I’m also an amateur musician, a busty and very experienced player.
