Kevin Kleps has done a little bit of everything as a sports writer and editor —from blogging about fantasy sports to covering high schools, colleges and the pros. He vividly remembers an early assignment as a young writer fresh out of college—a Little League game featuring 7- and 8-year-olds. It only got better from there (but the coaches were nice enough to share some orange slices).
I'm currently assistant editor at Crain's Cleveland Business, where I write a daily sports blog and stories for the print edition and website, as well as edit stories, design pages and help post online content. I'm a former assistant sports editor and fantasy sports columnist and blogger for The News-Herald in Willoughby, Ohio.
My biggest athletic regret is my father never raised me to be a pitcher. Heck, I'm even left-handed. I could've made millions! (OK, probably not.)
I hope to bring an entertaining, analytical perspective to this site. I'm a huge baseball fan who grew up watching the Cubs (thanks, WGN, for being available on so many TV sets around the country). One of my first baseball memories is anxiously looking forward to hearing Harry Caray butcher names and "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."
I'll bring the peanuts and Cracker Jacks. You just make sure you keep coming back.
