John Rentz, Staff Writer

John Rentz was born and raised in West Central Ohio, watching Reds, Tigers, and Cubs baseball growing up. Benefiting from his grandmother's loyalty to Reds on Radio flagship 700 WLW, John listened to games from an incomparable pairing (Marty Brennaman & Joe Nuxhall) starting in early 1980's, and his love of Reds baseball endures today. John has lived in Cincinnati since 2003 and attends games with reckless abandon. His love of baseball writing is rooted from many years reading Hal McCoy and Ritter Collett (both HOF writers) via the Dayton Dayton News. John is a proud graduate of University of Dayton and works as an engineer in his spare time. John makes contributions to Blog Red Machine (Reds) and to NASCAR writing at Stock Car Spin (FanSided Network).

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
