I have always loved baseball since I was a small child, and even though I never became a professional player as that was my dream, I still enjoy playing the game, and I became a writer that writes about baseball and other sports. However, once the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, I feared that I would not be able to play my beloved ballgames during that summer. However, as the summer progressed and I took chances by playing some games, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that baseball is a COVID-19 safe game as you can have fun with it because it is outdoors and you can socially distance yourself from others.
Therefore, it was also during the pandemic era that motivated me to establish Baseball Rampage. Baseball Rampage is a baseball resource for novice and experienced ballplayers. There are sections on the site that help novices familiarize themselves with baseball and a helpful tips section for beginners and experienced players. There is a section for youths that provide information on the right type of equipment, apparel, shoes, and baseball tips.
There are also reviews on clothing, shoes, bats, mitts, gloves, protective gear, and training equipment to make the game safe and enjoyable. Other contributors to Baseball Rampage include a sports and baseball equipment salesperson and a baseball instructor. Click on each of the bios to learn more about them.

Grant Monahan was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and his father sold hockey equipment.

Jason McMahon was born and raised in Seattle, Washington, and he has been a sports fan since he was a small boy. He also played in Little League and attended many ballgames. His love for baseball is why he became a writer in the sports niche that often included baseball. He wanted to become a professional player, but he wasn’t physically cut out for it, so writing about the sport was the next best thing. Jason attended Seattle University and obtained his Bachelor’s in Journalism.
Therefore, Jason has written for many publications in the sports niche and private clients in that niche. He plays baseball every spring and summer and was devastated when the COVID-19 pandemic dominated the spring of 2020. However, studies conducted that because baseball is a low-contact sport and one enjoyed outdoors, it is a pandemic-safe game. That is why Jason experienced relief during that summer and played the games. The pandemic lockdowns motivated him to create Baseball Rampage, a resource for baseball fans around the world that has everything to do with the game.
