Hi, I'm Jessica Quiroli, the newest member of the Minor League Ball Staff. Here's what you need to know about me!
I've been a minor league baseball writer for eight years, covering the minors for several newspapers and websites.
In 2008, three years after starting my writing career, I created 'High Heels On The Field' as an outlet to write about my thoughts on baseball, in a fun, but professionally-minded way. The title was meant to be fun, tongue-in-cheek, as well as a tribute to all the women that came before me, and a statement: we're here, deal with it. Plus, I just liked the sound of it and I do love heels.
I used it to profile minor league and independent players, as well as to express things I couldn't say in a story for a newspaper or other website.
I was born and raised in Delaware County (not actual Delaware), just outside of Philadelphia. I grew up a Phillies fan.
