On behalf of Birds Watcher and the Fansided Network, I’d like to formally welcome Jacob Adams to our team of writers at Birds Watcher. Jacob comes to us as a recent college grad from the University of Baltimore, where he received an MFA in creative writing last spring. He was born and raised on Maryland’s Eastern Shore (which also means he probably knows better than westerners like I what a good crab cake is!), and on top of everything else he was born on October 16, 1983 – the day the Orioles defeated the Phillies and won the World Series. Again on behalf of our writers here at Birds Watcher and the entire Fansided Network, join me in welcoming Jacob to our team!

I’ve been in and around sports since I was a child as a player, coach, and a fan. I consistently led the league in technical fouls when I was a basketball coach, and one famous incident I was tossed out of a game for protecting a player from poor officiating. The Orioles beat the Oakland A’s 4-2 the first time my father took me to Memorial Stadium as a kid, and I was hooked for life. While the “old lady” was far from a thing of beauty, to that point I had never seen grass so green, tasted hot dogs so good, or smelled beer so cold! Since that day many years ago, each time I'm at a ballgame I pay a bit of homage to that eight year old boy sitting in Memorial Stadium with his father. See you at the yard!
