Meet Greg Zumach

“Ivy Futures” 


About Me

Message from Greg Zumach

I was named after Greg Maddux so I’ve been invested since birth. What drove my fandom was following the minor league prospects and MLB first year player draft.
Now that my wife, Christa, son, Benjamin, and dog, Addison, and I live out in Oregon, we’ve been able to take in games with the Eugene Emeralds.

I had a blast writing on my site IvyFutures and I’m even more thrilled to build North Side Bound with writers who inspired me to join in these conversations.

The conversations about the Cubs organization, MiLB prospects, and the MLB Draft are what I love most about following baseball.

Thank you for following my work at North Side Bound!
