Bill Hanstock is a Northern California native transplanted to the Los Angeles area. He's a lifelong fan of the San Francisco Giants, but don't hold that against him. It turns out that all he had to do to get the Giants to win a World Series was move to LA. He has a telecommunications degree from CSU Monterey Bay and is currently pursuing his MA at Cal State Los Angeles. He has written for print publications and online since 2000, joining the humor website Progressive Boink as a staff writer in 2006. Since then, he has written for On Sandwiches and Baseball Feelings, and has been a guest writer at With Leather on several occasions. Bill couldn't be prouder to be a part of the SB Nation family and is excited for what is sure to be a fascinating 2012 in LA sports.
