About the author:
Tony was born and raised in Northeast Ohio and has lived there his entire life. He has grown up as a diehard Cleveland Browns and Ohio State Buckeyes fan, but his entire life he has been following the Cleveland Indians with a passion and deep love for baseball. He has been playing and/or following baseball since he was five years old. Over the past decade-plus that passion for baseball has permeated the minor league baseball scene. With so many affiliates and players to follow throughout the Cleveland Indians system, minor league baseball now rivals his love for Major League Baseball.
About eight years ago (2003) Tony started to write about the Indians minor league system for various website and media outlets before starting his own website at IndiansProspectInsider.com. Now he mainly writes for his website and has a blog "Minor Happenings" at the Cleveland Indians cable TV network SportsTime Ohio's site STOHD.com. In addition to "Minor Happenings" he writes many daily articles on the players, transactions, news, rumors, and many other things that occur over the course of the season and offseason that have anything to do with the Cleveland Indians at the big league or minor league level. He also recently started writing for the northeast Ohio newspaper the Ashtabula Star Beacon where he does a weekly Sunday full page column as well as player features and other columns during the week.
Tony is very fortunate to be able to travel around to all the Indians minor league affiliates, talking with the players themselves as well as the various Indians coaches, managers, scouts, front office executives, and coordinators in the organization. He also talks to several executives and scouts for other organizations as well. He visits every affiliate several times a year and also spends a lot of time in Arizona for both spring training and fall instructional league.
You'll get no better coverage of the prospects in the Cleveland Indians' farm system and the philosophies of the organization than in Tony's book and his website. A new article is posted everyday, and you can always expect lots of prospect analysis pieces, scouting reports, interviews, news, inside information, and more.
