Introduction to New Atlanta Braves Writer: Kale Diestel


Hey everyone! My name is Kale Diestel and I am from Brunswick, Georgia, about 30 minutes from the Georgia-Florida line. I am currently attending the University of Georgia, Majoring in Accounting and with a Minor in Sports Management. I attended high school at Glynn Academy, the sixth-oldest public high school in the United States. Glynn Academy has produced some amazing athletes such as Kwame Brown, Adam Wainwright, Willie McClendon, and Davis Love III, so I am no stranger to any sport. My interests range from golf to football, but nothing can top my first love… baseball.

I started playing baseball and football when I was six and continued to play both until a knee injury forced me off the field my junior year of high school. It was then I developed my love of making mock trades and free agent signings. Because of all the free time I had, I memorized a lot of baseball statistics, and that is where I got my nickname “Stats” from.

I grew up as a Braves fan, but it wasn’t until this time where I truly started following them hard. My favorite Braves player of all time is Brian McCann. I loved B-Mac because I was a little league catcher and admired his consistency at the plate. My favorite player on this current Braves team is Nick Markakis. He has always been a consistent player his whole career, although being very overlooked. He doesn’t excel in just one area; he works hard everyday and has a simple approach at the plate. You always know what you’re going to get from him.

I have always wanted to pursue a career in sports whether its working in the front office or covering the game as a journalist. I knew from the beginning that this opportunity to cover the Braves for Atlanta Sports Page was something that I could not pass on.

    Hello there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know
    how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird
    when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to
    find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!
