I have been a friend, and opponent of Co-Founder, Jon de Marte, since we competed against each other in high school. I was a few years older than Jon and went on to play baseball at the University at Buffalo, finishing my playing career at D3 powerhouse, Keystone college. I am serving as an outside advisor to SOTG while finishing law school at the University of Maryland School of Law. Through my journey I followed Jon’s long, interesting, and successful career. For a while, I had been an admirer from afar. Many of the guys I grew up playing with were from Westchester and Putnam County, NY, like Jon, we followed and rooted for each other. It was a sense of hometown pride, at least, in my opinion. When I saw that Jon and his brother created SOTG, I was intrigued. I knew the ability and knowledge Jon had regarding the game of baseball and to see his name on something else related interested me. Because of this, I reached out to Jon to learn more. He explained what SOTG was, and how they plan to impact the baseball community.
After speaking with Jon, he thought it would be best that I speak with his brother and partner Matthew. Picking Matthews brain after reading his content, after seeing, and analyzing his information was enlightening. Matthew showed a passion and drive, which I got the sense of after just 30 seconds of speaking with him. I knew after this conversation I was sold on SOTG and what it has to offer.
SOTG offers content to everyone that inspires thought about this wonderful game of baseball. They do not just tell you what to do or how to think. They offer valuable information that starts conversation about the game we all share a love for.
