Real name: Jack Schmelzinger
Applying for: New Applicant
Reason for applying:
First/Last Name: Jack / SchmelzingerI love baseball and love OOTP. I'm very active and consider myself to be a pretty good GM, so my team will be competitive. My conscientious and competitive nature will make sure that my team will NEVER TANK. Like, Never. I hate that stuff. I'll always play to win. Also, I love to write--I'm going to college to study journalism--and would have a lot of fun writing about the BBA. I consider myself to be at least competent in that area too, and maybe the BBA could even be a nice bullet point in my writing resume some day. I doubt many people applying for jobs in the journalism world have an extensive portfolio writing about a fictional video game league so well run that it genuinely seems real! I just recently got into OOTP online leagues; I didn't have much time throughout high school with sports, school, and my other extracurriculars. Now that I'm headed to college--not being skilled enough to continue my athletic career there--however, my schedule has cleared out considerably. I just recently joined a couple of leagues (the BML, and Mlbonline) and am having a lot of fun with them. I hope you'll choose me; the league seems awesome. Thanks.
