Tim Kurkjian – ESPN Major League Baseball Analyst

Besides his work with ESPN, Tim has authored three books, his latest titled I’m Fascinated by Sacrifice Flies: Inside the Game We All Love.

On every day of the Major League Baseball season, from 1990 until 2010, Kurkjian cut every MLB box score out of a newspaper and taped them into a spiral notebook. Tim estimates that this daily task, at 15 minutes per day over 20 seasons, consumed 40 days of his life. He stopped doing it due to the lack of newspapers printing box scores.
