Updated Version: The origin of my nickname “Bunchy” goes back many years to when I was a Little League Baseball Player. One of my coaches started calling me Bunchy when I was 11 years old on our Mountain All-Star Team and it stuck. This is why I call my blog Bunchiesblog, (maybe I need to reconcile the spelling now that I think about it?) The funny thing is, I was known by this name through my college baseball days as I always had someone from my former team to carry it forward, but then after college I didn’t hear it for quite a while until I started playing adult baseball again in the Los Angeles Baseball League. One of my good friends arrived at this nickname intuitively and once again, it stuck. Baseball is a funny game when it comes to nicknames, almost every player has some sort of weird nickname or set of nicknames.
