Rob Fuller grew up in Youngstown, Ohio, square in the middle of Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and watched as the majority of his friends rooted for the Steelers as well as the Indians. That didn't fly with Rob, as his allegiance has always been to Cleveland and magnificent sports teams the city has to offer. Rob studied English literature and journalism at Youngstown State University and has coached high-school baseball and travel baseball for six years, winning a 16-and-under National Championship and appearing in the P.O.N.Y. World Series along the way (where his team was thoroughly dismantled at the hands of Chinese Taipei and Long Beach, California following a gutsy victory over Culiacan, Mexico.) Rob prides himself on his painstaking research as a writer, as well as the one time a Division III baseball coach told him he swung like Ryan Garko. He now makes his home in the West Park neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio.
