Talking Cubs Baseball Since 2003

Jeff Ragauskis

Jeff Ragauskis has been a die-hard Cub fan since birth and joined the VFTB writing team in December of 2016. His love of baseball grew as he dove into baseball cards, video games, and any Cub paraphernalia  he could get his hands on. Growing up in the south suburbs of Chicago, it became crucial to be able to defend his fandom in the heart of Sox country.

In 2014, Jeff became a season ticket holder after putting his name on the wait list when he was 10 years old. Since, he has used his free time to blog lightly on the team on the rebuild and their resurgence. The World Series win brought him to large, manly tears.

Outside of diehard Cub fandom, Jeff can be found playing MLB the Show (Jeff705 on PSN), playing cello for his string group Simply Strings, and working as an insurance underwriter. Jeff also follows the Valparaiso Crusaders Men’s Basketball team during the Cubs offseason, his alma matter, where he received a degree in Actuarial Science. He is expecting his first child this Christmas, who is named after 2 Cubs players.
