My name is AJ Blankenship and I am a 22 year old college student, majoring in Sports Business Management with aspirations of working in the front office of a Major League Baseball organization. My passion in life has always been sports and I hope one day this blog will build a following so I can share that passion with other people. I grew up in a very sports driven family and played basketball and baseball all my life up until high school. That is when my lack of talent finally caught up to me, but also when my passion truly started.
As well as going to school I work for a pool company which keeps me busy during baseball season making blogging a little difficult, so bare with me if posts aren’t as frequent as we would both like. I also am the assistant JV Baseball Coach at Parkway West High School in St. Louis. I just started this position over the last season and I love it, being involved with baseball in any facet possible is important.
Call me crazy, but I am one of those people that believes that sports can change lives
“You know, say what you will about the ravages of sports in this corporate age where overpaid athletes expect prima donna treatment, but there is still something so unifying about sport in its purest form, when athletes rise above themselves and touch greatness and, in doing so, remind us all that we also have greatness inside of us.”
It’s not crazy, it’s sports.
