Hello! My name is Patrick Brennan and I am the founder of Royals Farm Report. I decided to start up this blog as a way to talk about minor league baseball more. Outside of here, you can find some of my writing at various sites such as Royals Review, BP Wrigleyville, and xStats.
Co-Founder and Managing Editor
Graduated high school from Blue Springs High School in 2013. Played baseball at UCM from 2013-2016. Avid Royals, Chiefs, and Mizzou fan. Contributor for Royals Review.
I recently graduated the University of Delaware with a B.S in Hospitality Industry Management and a concentration in Analytics. After spending free time working on baseball-related statistical projects and attending Wilmington Blue Rocks games, I decided to give my time and effort a purpose.
Editor in Chief
Marina has been working in baseball since she graduated college, and is thrilled to be joining RFR! The game itself is unlike anything else to her; so much thought, detail, and mental stamina goes into every facet of play. She began her career in MLB’s Commissioner’s Office in New York City, where she learned bits and pieces about each MLB organization’s operational strengths and weaknesses. She then went on to work for the Dodgers as front desk Spring Training secretary, essentially in charge of their major league building in Arizona, which eventually led to a similar spring training administrative role with the Royals in Surprise, Arizona. She has followed the Royals’ farm system since, and continues to be very passionate about its development as players and people. She still currently works for the Dodgers in Los Angeles, but is equally interested in and up to date on all things Royals.
Social Media Coordinator
I was born and raised in Kansas City and lived in the metro area for more than 2 decades. I currently reside in Dallas with my wife and son. As a KC expat, my love for the Royals has only grown with the distance. Working with Royals Farm Report has plugged me into a community of passionate baseball fans that I love to interact with.
I’ve been an avid Royals since we moved to the KC area in 1995, married to Gwyn with 2 kids (Lydia is 7, Luke is 5), a sports management major and a master’s in education from Southwest Baptist University, teacher, coach, partial Naturals season ticket holder. I pitched and coached pitchers at SBU before becoming a high school head coach. I hope you enjoy RFR and our reports. Thanks for reading!
Seth Wingerter is entering his senior year at the University of Kansas, where he serves as the Student Body VP and currently pursues a Finance degree and looks to go into asset management. His earliest Royals memories were of his grandfather and grandmother taking him to afternoon games at the K and sitting in the scorching hot seats to watch Mark Teahen, Angel Berroa and co. lose 100 games. Since then, he’s been hooked. He operates primarily out of a Twitter account mostly dedicated to baseball,
@platinombrero. Hit him with that follow: you might regret it but life’s short so why not.
As I moved around as a child one thing was constant — the Royals. Hailing from Trenton, Missouri, I have followed Kansas City for as long as I can remember. Now that I’m entering the final year of my sports media degree from Northwest Missouri State University, I couldn’t think of a better thing to do than cover the team I love. My hope is to create content that you enjoy. Don’t be afraid to follow me on Twitter
@thereal_tuckerf and say Royals Farm Report sent ya!
