How you first were introduced to Strat:  My good friend Mr. Crawford took on the Moneyballers expansion team a few years back and Commissioner Renbarger roped me in back in 2013 when the Chatfield Choo Choos needed an interim manager.

Origin of your team name:  We have a second home in Destin, Fla., and love it there.  My son Kevin played for the Traverse City Beach Bums in their inaugural season.

Any Strat involvement outside the I-75 League? No, a man can only take so much abuse…

One thing you would do to improve the league:  Shorten the season by a month and have I-75 Playoffs completed in October parallel to the MLB season.
