Hello everybody. My name is Chris Eros and I’m excited to be covering the St. Louis Cardinals for Prospects1500. I’m 33 years old and have a wife and 2 boys aged 3 and 9. We live up in Neepawa, Manitoba, Canada. I graduated from Assiniboine Community College in 2012 with a diploma in Agribusiness, and currently work at a farm implement dealership. I have been involved in baseball, hockey, and football fantasy leagues for the last 15+ years. Within the last 2-3 years is when I really started getting into the prospects and deep baseball leagues. This year my friend Derek and I joined the Diamond Duos V dynasty league and are really looking forward to kicking the season off.
A couple years ago Derek and I traveled down to Minneapolis to watch our beloved Red Sox play the Twins. It was such a great experience. Got to see David Ortiz play in his final season before he retired. Being from the middle of Canada, Minneapolis is the closest city to us where we can catch MLB baseball live, but we don’t get down there very much being 8 hours away. Although I’m a huge Red Sox fan, I’m excited to dive deep into the Cardinals minor league system and possibly find that hidden gem.
Over the last couple of years I’ve also started collecting baseball cards. Love the hobby. I also have quite a few hockey cards that I’ve been collecting since I was little. But now I just focus on collecting baseball. Nothing better than pulling that card you’re looking for in a break.
Thanks everyone for taking some time to look through Prospects1500. If you have any questions, want to chat about baseball, or baseball cards just let me know. You can follow me on Twitter @ChrisEros
