Michael is a Chicago-born and raised Cubs fan recently transplanted to Milwaukee to be closer to his father-in-law and stepdaughters. A Cubs fan since 1969, Michael used to attend games as a guest of the Wrigley’s, who contracted Michael’s father from 1965-1977 to help players with insurance, annuities, and off-season employment. As a Little Leaguer he was referred to as ‘Baby Kingman’ for his propensity to strike out swinging, walk or hit a towering home run with each at-bat. Despite so many heroes in 2016, his all-time favorite Cubs’ player is still Kerry Wood.
