about shakeia

i was raised in northeast ohio and moved to chicago to attend loyola university chicago. i’ve been in chicago ever since. most of my life has been connected to sports. it’s a source of fun and friendship for me. in 2016, i was asked to write for Fangraphs’ The Hardball Times and my first piece “The Case for Bringing Back Ladies’ Day” was so well received that i decided to make it a thing. growing up, my father always said i should be a writer. well, here i am, just a few years late.

i hear often that “baseball is boring” and i honestly won’t dispute it, but it is a game that has gotten closer to my heart as i’ve gotten older. i have mostly written articles connecting baseball history to the present. each piece is its own journey and i am always happy when a reader decides to embark on that journey through time with me.
