I've debated on this for a long, due to a mix of stubbornness and not wanting to ask for help. I am entering my fifth season of covering minor league baseball. The journey I've been on has opened more doors, taught me more lessons and allowed me to tell more stories than I could have ever imagined. My goal since the beginning has been to be a voice for the players I've covered and tell their stories throughout the year.
Entering this season, the mix of real life and chasing my dream has hit a snag, as my laptop (or lifeline during the season) is about to die for good. I've been able to revive it now and than, but it's coming to where I know I don't have a choice but to replace it.
As mentioned, I'm never one to ask for assistance, but this is a time where my needs and finances aren't lining up to make this happen. If you feel as though you'd like to add some support to my next year of baseball work, I'd be more grateful than you'll ever know.
I also wanted to share that any money I receive beyond what is requested, I'll be donating to Kingdom Home, a nonprofit set up by Detroit Tigers pitcher Matt Boyd and his wife Ashley.
Again, thank you for following my work the last four years. An investment into this next chapter gives what I hope is a continuation of representation into a league of players who may otherwise remain unknown. Thank you all for the consideration.
