About laney895

I’m a twentysomething small town journalist
with an incurable addiction to baseball and live music. I
work as hard as I play. I grew up in Iowa, but also lived in
Texas for four years, which is when and how I fell in love
with the sport of baseball, courtesy of the Texas Rangers.
Since spring of 2005, I have attended more than 50 major
league baseball games (mostly Rangers games) and countless
minor league games. Now that I’m back in Iowa, I have to work
harder to keep up with my boys in Ranger blue, but
fortunately there’s a minor league affiliate nearby so I can
get my baseball fix. I can’t believe it took me 25 years to
fall in love with baseball, but I’m so thankful I found it.
Through this amazing game, I have met some incredible people
— new friends and some of my favorite boys of summer. I’ll
share some of my thoughts and adventures in this blog.
