Thomas Giles

Tom Giles is an avid baseball enthusiast and historian who has taught about the game for years. Having moved from Chicago to Sarasota in 1994, the question frequently asked of him is which Major League Baseball team is his favorite — Chicago Cubs, White Sox or, possibly, the Tampa Bay Rays? (Psssst … be sure to ask him.) Tom was a school administrator and instructor for more than 20 years, teaching math, history and English, and overseeing it all as a principal.
