I started as a rookie at Al Bat at the beginning of 2018 and I am in my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a detractor of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuna are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to have the World Series taken from them for their cheating. In addition to baseball, I also enjoy football, flag, basketball, and just about any other game that involves a ball or ball. I am also an amateur musician, a penniless gamer and a very nerdy person. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the world shrimp capital, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived for a time in Australia; I survived giant spiders, Tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
