Adam Hodge

Adam Hodge (@arhodge013) has been playing fantasy baseball for twenty years. He learned that the game is a cruel mistress early on, as he drafted a young Adrian Beltre season after season before giving up on him just before he finally broke out in 2004. A true fantasy baseball junkie, he has won championships in a variety of formats, including rotisserie and head-to-head leagues that have had standard "snake" drafts as well as auction drafts. Adam is a die-hard Cleveland Indians fan who enjoys taking in major and minor league games alike. He lives in Toledo, OH, with his wife and baby girl, where he is a professor of history.
