Chuck Booth (Lead Baseball Writer/Website Owner): Follow @chuckbooth3024
We are pleased to present you with our vision of the future with MLB Reports. We are looking to have 30 passionate, die-hard fans that can write about their favorite MLB Teams. This page will provide biographies of our writers and then archive their work as they produce articles for us at the Reports.
Correspondent Articles will be much more detailed than your normal posts are and will delve deep into the subject matter from those individuals that follow the teams rabidly. In the coming days, weeks and months, we will start to fill this page out.

Yankees/Correspondent: Nicholas Rossoletti
Having grown up during the last two decades, Nicholas counts Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera as his favorite ball players of all time. He believes in sabermetrics and that new stats have already changed the way the baseball industry sees players. He was for Trout over Cabrera, he thinks RBIs tell you a lot more about a team than a player and that defense and pitching, ultimately, win championships.
Rational thought and introspective analysis over the narrative is how we come to understand the game we love. The narrative is just a way to keep those who don’t really love the game watching. Feel free to follow Nicholas on twitter and talk the game of baseball Follow @NRoss56

Lee was born and raised in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, New York. He inherited his love of baseball from his dad. The game has been Lee’s constant companion since he was seven years old – when his dad took him to see his first ball game at Ebbets Field. This was followed by a brief and largely unsuccessful Little League career. While he wasn’t all that good on the ball field he became an ALL-Star at collecting baseball cards. His collection is still alive today after surviving many scares over the years. Lee was also much better at business than playing baseball. He was good enough that he was able to retire and pursue his other passion – writing about baseball! Chin Music is his first novel. He is hard at work on his second, Mound Music.
