Tim Kuda has been participating in sports a majority of his life. Tim is from the Chicago area and is a Chicago sports fan. However, when baseball is the game, his alliance is to the North side of town. Tim has lived and mostly died with the Cubs since the Bill Buckner days in the early 80s but don't hold that against him. Anyone can have a bad century.
Todd Newville, a resident of Plano, Texas, has been a lifelong baseball fan. He grew up in Oklahoma City and attended the University of Oklahoma where he majored in sports journalism. He served short stints as a sportswriter in Ardmore, Okla., and Norman, Okla., in the early 1990s. He worked as a rodeo magazine editor for over eight years in Oklahoma City. Todd likes to think he knows a little about all sports but baseball is his forte. He particularly enjoys the nostalgia aspect of the game and he has an admirable collection of baseball cards, autographs and other memorabilia. His free-lance baseball work has appeared several times in Baseball Digest and other publications and he has maintained his own website since 2000 at www.baseballtoddsdugout.com. Besides baseball, he also enjoys college football, college baseball and the NCAA basketball tournament. He is a big fan of the Oklahoma Sooners, New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Texas Rangers, Frisco RoughRiders, Johnny Bench, Mickey Mantle, Warren Spahn, Dale Murphy, Nolan Ryan, Pete Rose, Don Mattingly, Babe Ruth, George Strait, Clint Black, Van Halen, Def Leppard, Aerosmith – and George W. Bush. He has been married since 1994 to his beautiful wife Melissa and they have a handsome son named Jackson, who was born in 2003 in Atlanta.
