Area of ExpertiseMost of my attention is focused on providing Major League Baseball coverage on the Toronto Blue Jays.
I have worked full time at the Globe and Mail for close to 40 years, primarily in the sports department, covering everything from high school athletics to all the professional leagues. I first became interested in becoming a journalist despite the best efforts of my Dad, Rex MacLeod, a former sports reporter at both the Globe and the Toronto Star who is enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame as a member of the media section. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to cover the likes of Vince Carter as he helped put the Toronto Raptors on the basketball map and was present when Jose Bautista famously flipped his bat after his dramatic home run against the Texas Rangers. I remain an avid bicyclist despite an unfortunate encounter with a bus back in 1997 and love to play backgammon (for money, of course). Playing table tennis is another pursuit.
