Real name: Greg Herren
Applying for: New Applicant
Reason for applying:
First/Last Name: Greg HerrenI grew up enjoying the great game of baseball, although never played past T-ball. I only discovered OOTP about 4 years ago but feel like I have caught on to the game, at least the basics, quickly. I also enjoy writing so the sportscasting part of this league sounds great. I'll try hard to role play and plan on participating for as long as you will have me.

Tell us more about yourself: I'm a father of four and grandfather of (soon to be) eight. I grew up in a very small town in Ohio where my Grandpa had a service station. Growing up I was never allowed in the "shop" unless a baseball game was on. I was allowed to come and sit on a stool and watch Grandpa work on cars while listening to the Reds broadast. Never learned anything about cars but the lessons I learned about baseball stuck with me. I have tried to pass that love of baseball on to my children (didn't really work) and grandchildren. I think its working with my oldest granddaughter. She just got picked for her softball All Star team!
