All right. Let me introduce myself. I am a rookie blogger, going by the name BlueSkinnyFan. I chose that name because of two reasons, other than my weight. I am very fond of the color blue and have been as far as I can remember. I also chose it because I am a huge Dodger fan and this blog will mainly cover the sport of baseball. I am seventeen years old and a high school senior. I was introduced to the sport of baseball at the age of six, when my dad signed me up for tee ball. My dad also coached my team, the White Sox. I can vaguely remember my time playing ball, as I usually grounded out. Nevertheless, I did have my best moments whenever the chance came up. I stopped playing baseball after tee ball ended because I never was interested in playing, especially with my commitment to school work. I still watched baseball when the postseason aired, especially during the White Sox World Series Title run in 2005. The next year, I played close attention to the Dodgers postseason run and I started to become a fan. However, it wasn't until the Dodgers' acquisition of Manny Ramirez in 2008 that I skyrocketed into a huge fanatic of baseball. Since then, I can't stop thinking of the team. I have also recently started with trying to collect memorabilia, such as autographs and bobbleheads. Therefore, with all that information I will be covering baseball and any other sporting news/events. I hope to have fun with trying this blog out and would also like for any of you guys to give me feedback.
