Anthony Lutz – Etobicoke
Born in 1978, one year after the birth of his passion the Toronto Blue Jays and a fan since as long as he can remember. Anthony spent his formative years growing up in Mississauga and Brampton, Ontario following the Blue Jays on TV and Radio. When he moved to Windsor in 1997 Anthony learned to love the game of baseball, not just the Toronto Blue Jays, when bordering Detroit provided some exposure to Tigers baseball called by Ernie Harwell.
Now living in Etobicoke, Anthony has a passion for baseball that is unequaled. He started the Baseball North blog on MLBlogs.com after a follower of @AJLutz97 on twitter suggested he put his thoughts and opinions into longer form than 140 characters. The twitter feed is updated regularly, and a new blog is posted almost daily.
Anthony is currently in the middle of a life long dream to visit every major league ballpark, including repeat visits to cities he’s seen already where a new park has opened. He saw Exhibition Stadium as a child and numerous visits to Skydome/Rogers Centre in Toronto, and several trips to Old Tiger Stadium and Comerica Park in Detroit while living in Windsor. The road trips began with the Milwaukee in 1999 to see the Brewers in Old County Stadium. Since then Anthony has been to Montreal, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Old Yankee Stadium, Florida, Tampa Bay, Comiskey Park, Wrigley Field, St. Louis, Kansas City, Target Field in Minnesota, and Miller Park in Milwaukee. An east coast road trip to Baltimore, Washington, New York, and Philadelphia in May of 2011 was postponed due to the death of Anthony’s mother and he expects to make up the trip in 2012. A trip to Fenway Park in Boston for the Red Sox home schedule finale is scheduled for September of 2011. Anthony will also be visiting Cooperstown to see the National Baseball Hall Of Fame for the first time in August 2011.
