Welcome to my blog/website!

My name is Mike Ekstrom and I’m a traveling professional baseball player. What started on a bus in Eugene, Oregon in 2004 has turned into more than a decade of traveling around the US and globe playing baseball.

I’ll be spending 2014 playing for the Piratas de Rimini and touring Europe in the Italian Baseball League.

I’ve decided to work on this site, Baseball Round the World as a project for the current season. I’ve compiled some articles about baseball trips from my past and look forward to writing more about my season and where I’ll be in the future.

I will also be posting interviews and information about leagues from all around the world. In my career, I’ve been fortunate to have teammates from all around the world. Through this site, I look forward to sharing some of their stories and experiences.
