About the Writers
Giuseppe has loved baseball his entire thirteen years of life. He is a big Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim fan and has 7 jerseys for every day of the week to prove it. This past year he embarked on a journey to get authentic team gear from every MLB team.
He has also acquired a large number of player autographs, baseball cards, and other memorabilia through a voracious letter-writing campaign. He hopes to be the first Owner/General Manager/Announcer/Manager/Shortstop in MLB history and bring Daryll along for the ride. He is the oldest of 4 siblings residing with his parents in the Inland Empire of California. His favorite quote is from Rogers Hornsby who said “People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.”
For as long as he can remember, Daryll has loved the game of baseball. He grew up in the Central Valley of CA cheering for the Braves on TBS before moving to San Diego (taking his love for the Braves with him) for college when he became a Padres fan. He was also lucky enough to see Tony Gwynn before he retired.
Daryll would throw tennis balls at his wooden garage door and practice diving for imaginary baseballs while playing for the Pirates in tee ball. He was able to meet Terry Pendleton of the Braves (who played his position) when he was five years old. One of Daryll’s best memories from childhood was playing with his dad who was also his personal pitching coach.
As he grew up, baseball grew with him. He played baseball for the junior high school team, high school freshman, junior varsity, and even getting cut from the varsity team which was according to him “…one of the hardest days of my life.”
Later on, Daryll met his wife who is a die-hard Angels fan and a softball player herself. Daryll said that “…baseball bound us”. They now live in Eugene, Oregon where they go to many college football and volleyball events. Do not worry, him moving up North has only strengthened his love and passion for the great game of baseball.
His favorite quote is: “The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it’s a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. – Field of Dreams
