My name is Jason Marbach. I'm a single father to two beautiful, wonderful little girls whom I love more than my own life. I'm also an avid music fan, having been a professional, touring singer songwriter for the better part of ten years. But the one constant through all my life, the first love that never quite let me go and still hovers nearby despite being eclipsed by the love I have for my daughters and my girlfriend, has been baseball. That simply complex, wonderfully heartbreaking amalgam of bitter resentment and joyous chaos; that fine line between utter, heartfelt poetry in motion and cold, calculated mathematical equation. A game of inches in which 90 feet separate the bases, ten hits can be the difference between hitting .280 and .300 over 550 at bats, and the very best players in the world still fail 65% of the time...yes. That is my passion in life.
