Dan Graziano

USA flag

An avid baseball fan but a mediocre player, Dan Graziano didn't play sports in college -- he wrote about them instead. Since it took up all of his time, he decided to make a career out of it.

Within two years of graduation from Georgetown University, he was a full-time baseball beat writer -- a job that has taken him all over the world. But no matter how many times he had deep-dish pizza in Chicago, coffee in Seattle or clam chowder in Boston, there was never a place that compared to New York. It was when he moved to New York that Dan felt at home and started his family -- finally and thankfully putting the lunacy of the single-guy life behind him.
