Tec: Tell us a little about yourself.
Frankum: I'm 26 years old, married with no kids. Living in northern indiana and work as a product manager for an orthopedic device company. I started playing sim league baseball, then took a 3 year break and came back to play HBD.
Frankum: Golf, slow pitch softball, fantasy football, really just sports in general.
Frankum: I played basketball, baseball and football growing up. In college I was actually a lifter on a cheerleading squad. Kinda wierd but the girls were hot.
Tec: Who are your favorite all-time players?
Frankum: I've always been a Yankees fan. Although I never saw them play, I grew up to stories from my grandpa about how amazing Mickey Mantle was. He'll always be a legend in my mind.
Tec: What has been your favorite real-life sports experience or memory?
Frankum: I've not been to many sporting events in person so I don't really have a cool on site experience. But in 2006 when the Colts won the Super Bowl. I was in college drinking with a bunch of Bears fans. I remember the Bears taking the opening kickoff for a touchdown and they were talking shit non stop. When we won a never let them hear the end.
Tec: What's been your most memorable non-sports experience in your life?
Frankum: I have two...my wedding day and the day we signed the contract to build our first house. I'm just a young fella.
Tec: If you were an HBD player, what position would you play and what would your ratings be?
Frankum: I would be a first baseman with an amazing glove, no range, no arm strength but accurate. Probably 25/50/25/60. Hitting I would have a solid batting eye, middle of t he road contact, line drive hitter with no power. 60/50/70/70/70. Solid bench guy. (in my dreams of course).
Thank you frankum for participating in our latest Mantle World Owner interview, and good luck to you going onward.
