Me, Myself, And Red Sox Nation

Hey there MLB people and other ballhawks! I’m Jon Madden (no, not the football announcer). Just some quick things about myself:

-I live in the world
-Red Sox rule! (don’t try to change my mind)
-I have gotten into the interest of ball snagging thanks to Zack Hample (check out his blog http://snaggingbaseballs.mlblogs.com/)
-I’ve collected 13 balls from Major and Minor League teams. (2 from the majors and everywhere else is from….
– Frontier Field. It’s my hometown stadium. They hold the AAA Afiliates to the Twins: the Rochester Red Wings.
I think that’s pretty much it… I’ll keep blogging!
