John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller.

Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game.

John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
