I'm Nicole Johnson, and I run this show.  My husband is Elliot Johnson, and he is currently a utility player for the Cleveland Indians.  He has played at every level, and I've been there through AA (Montgomery Biscuits), AAA (Durham Bulls), and a few Major League teams, the Rays, the Royals, the Braves, and now the Indians.  We met in Arizona while I attended Arizona State (Go Devils!) and he was living in the valley playing in the Arizona Fall League.  We currently spend our offseasons in Raleigh/Durham.  

We have a 4 year old son, Blake, who is learning the ropes of our crazy lifestyle, and we're learning the ropes of parenting.  We're also learning about travel and baseball with a child that has nut allergies. In October, we welcomed twin girls, Hazel & Skylar, to our entourage, and we're all making our way around the country.  We also have a dog, Baxter, that we got the first season we were married, and he's been to more places than most dogs go in their entire life.  To say we have a full house is an understatement!
