My name is Adam King. This is my self introduction to all my readers at NYYNEWS.com. You can find me on Twitter.com by searching @TopSportsMind.
I’m the newest writer here at NYYNEWS.com on the site NYY.NEWS. Added by Felix Pantaleon.
My Whole Life I have been involved in baseball. My baseball Career started when I was 3. Here’s a chronology:
- At age 3 was T ball.
- When I turn 9 I went to Little League
- At 14 I started High School Ball.
- When I turn 18 I entered the draft. The Cubs selected me with the 127th round(There was 250 Rounds till changes in 2008) by the Cubs but couldn’t handle it after going through 2 Car wrecks that should’ve killed me. Injuries caused me to retire and I then went into umpiring.
Also was the hitting coach at SLCC(Salt Lake Community College) for 2 years taking their team batting average from .251 to .312 in the process. My dad was a LL/HC/NCAA/MLB/MiLB Umpire for over 40 years and my Grandpa for 55 years. My baseball knowledge came from this pedigree. I have 2 Cousins affiliated with the Yankees which are RHP Mike King and a Yankees Assistant GM I cannot disclose.
I hail from Idaho Falls Idaho but live in SLC Utah. During my Life I ahve learned to become a Musician, Pro Trained Computer, Mechanic, Amateur Chef, and ETC! I have spent my life learning everything possible. When I get bored I teach my self things such as when I taught myself to play the Piano, Organ, and Sing before getting some Piano and now extensive Voice lessons. I am ambitious like that! Always have been!
I love playing, Officiating/Umpire/reffing and coaching Sports. I was a Pro-Am Billiards player in 8 ball and 9 ball for 3 years before quitting. While playing Volleyball I dislocated my wrists destroying my abilities here. I have sense got better but haven’t taken it back up. I do play Softball*, Basketball and several others regularly though.
As of this point in my life I am not yet married but that will happen soon I feel. Things looking far better now though I can’t really go into that!
Finally I actual;y chose the name Adam.
