Andy Nichols is a 22-year-old Communications student at Clarion University of Pennsylvania, and a lifelong Indians fan. He has a passion for Indians baseball, from the Major League squad, all the way down to the low levels of the Minors. Growing up in the 90s, Andy remembers watching the glory days of the Indians. Some of his favorite players were David Justice and Charles Nagy, but his all-time favorite was Roberto Alomar. For as long as he can remember, Andy has always had an obsession with sports, but he always gravitated more towards baseball. The unpredictability, attention to detail, and the suspense of each pitch is what draws Andy to the game of baseball. In his opinion, there's nothing more exciting, and gut-wrenching, than a baseball game. His love of the game stems from his father Dale, and his brother Brian. He credits his love for the Indians to his uncle, Robert Smolinski.
Andy is from Meadville, Pa and graduated from Meadville Area Senior High School in 2008, where he played baseball. Throughout his schooling career, Andy has always known that he wants to someday work in the sports journalism profession, with an ultimate goal of covering Cleveland sports. He has always had a knack for absorbing sports information and statistics, and he hopes to carry that skill into a future career in the sports world.
Andy sums up his love for the game with a quote from the movie, Moneyball: "It's hard not to be romantic about baseball."
