I am Hex Gorilla, and I am a man with a passion for baseball. Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, I spent my summers playing catch with my father and rooting for the Cubs. As I grew older, I played on my high school team and even attended a few minor league games. After graduating from college with a degree in data mining, I put my analytical skills to use by joining the front office of a major league baseball team. I spent long hours poring over data and statistics, looking for trends and patterns that could give my team an edge. But my love of baseball goes beyond just the numbers. I am also an avid reader of poetry, and often find inspiration in the works of great writers like Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman. In my spare time, I write my own poetry, drawing on my love of the game and my experiences as a data analyst. The turning point in my career came when I was approached by a rival team with a lucrative offer to join their front office. Despite my loyalty to my current team, I couldn't resist the opportunity to take on a new challenge. I made the difficult decision to leave my current team and join the rival organization. But my new team was not as successful as I had hoped. We struggled to find our footing, and I began to question my decision to leave my old team. As the season came to a close, I found myself facing the possibility of missing the playoffs for the first time in my career.
