Tom Birch grew up outside Indianapolis, IN but now resides in Minneapolis, MN. He was a Cubs fan from birth, watching Harry Carey and Ryne Sandberg (his all time favorite player) on WGN on countless afternoons. Tom still remembers his first time at Wrigley as a ten year old boy and knowing he had fallen in love at first sight. He was in a bar about a mile from Wrigley when Bryant (his favorite active player) made that slipping throw for the final out of the World Series. He ventures to Wrigley about once year with his fiancé or father and enjoys the history and stats of the game.
