Currently the Cleveland Indians beat reporter at Indians Baseball Insider, Jim has written for publications such as ESPNCleveland.com, The Sun Newspaper and BleacherReport.com while also serving as the sports editor for the CSU newspaper, “The Cleveland Stater.” He can be reached on Twitter (@JBirdman27) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Ever since he could remember, Jim always loved and followed Cleveland Indians baseball. Growing up, he would surprise his family and friends knowing most of the players on the Tribe. It was not hard to figure out Jim was an Indians fan, as he would always wear his Jim Thome shirt with the big number 25 on the back. His passion and commitment to the Tribe have made him into the lifelong fan he is today.
Jim has played the game of baseball from T-ball through Varsity baseball in high school as a 1st baseman, pitcher, and outfielder. He hopes to one day attend a game and visit all 30 Major League ballparks in his lifetime (21 more and counting). His favorite and sports movie is Field of Dreams and favorite music is country.
