Name: Kevin Kroh
Date registered: February 19, 2012
Born and raised under the big blue skies of sunny Colorado, Kevin grew up admiring Tony Gwynn, the Zephyrs, and then the Rockies once big league baseball finally came to Denver. He turned away from the game after Gwynn & co. lost the ’98 World Series, then read some Nietzsche and set off to experience the world. He lived in Ireland, fell in love, moved to Denmark, taught at a university in China, and moved back to Copenhagen in 2007. He began playing competitive fast-pitch softball that year and coincidentally started following the Rockies closely again. And what a year! Rocktober meant sitting in front of a laptop alone until 5am every game night, cheering in muted roars and flailing arms so as not to wake his girlfriend. He’s dabbled in gainful employment, earned a master’s degree, learned Danish, played some home run derby in the local park with Nordic drunks and bums, seen some awful times at Coors Field, and currently clings to the pipe dream of publishing some of his own weird short stories some day soon. Hosting green chile cook-offs and brewing oatmeal stout gets him through the dark and dreary off-season. Coaching and playing shortstop for the Copenhagen Urban Achievers during the summer helps keep his mind limber and his spirit young.
