About Shelly Bee
Baseball. Baseball. Baseball. That’s why I’m here. My name is Shelly Bee. I write words sometimes, I take pictures other times, but no matter what I am doing and what job I have, I will never work on Opening Day. On opening day, I will be yelling at a screen somewhere with a bunch of people who are just trying to eat their lunch. My friends, however, will be littering the streets of Detroit outside of Comerica Park, like they do every year, regardless if the Tigers are playing there or not. It is our Christmas. My love affair began, when I was 13, in north Florida, with the 1996 Atlanta Braves. Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones, Javy Lopez, John Smoltz, and Greg Maddux. After an unexpected move to the Motor City I learned to love the Detroit Tigers nearly as much as I loved the Braves. Its not ALL about the Tigers though, I get down with the Red Sox on occasion. Dustin Pedroia is my spirit animal, he doesn’t know it yet, but we are getting married. I digress. I don’t really like talking about myself too much, I could bore you with my list of accomplishments and accolades, but I’d rather not. Yeah, I went to college. Yeah, I played ball, Yeah, I write words. That’s all you need to know. Now, lets talk about baseball and maybe get a little weird with it.
