David Marran (@SoxNerd), a native of Wilmette, IL, and a graduate of New Trier High School and Marquette University, created the Twitter account in 2012 as an outlet for his favorite subjects: The White Sox, White Sox history and baseball. The account began on a challenge from his youngest daughter who was absolutely convinced there was no way her dad could exceed her number of followers. Twitter and the linked Word Press blog ( are the perfect platforms for @soxnerd to post information, stats, research and nuggets he has accrued in his 32 seasons as a member of the White Sox Scoreboard Crew. Since the mid-1980's, Marran has been researching, writing, inputting and displaying factoids, trivia and notes during White Sox games. In his previuos life Moran wrote (The Cubs Fan's Book, Diamond Communications 1985), was a sports writer and sports editor for the Kenosha News from 1987 to 2016 and wrote extensivley for the Bear Report and the Packer Report. Marran has been married to Laura for 30 yrs. They have 2 grown daughters and one grand son.
