A recovering attorney, Tom is the Executive Vice President of the St. Paul Saints Triple A baseball team. His baseball career began accidentally in 1992 when he sold an outfield wall billboard, program ad, and four season tickets to the general manager of a moving company as they stood on the courthouse steps following a hearing.
Tom has been instrumental in bringing Japanese baseball teams to the US, and sending the Saints for a goodwill tour to Japan. He lives in Lino Lakes with his wife, Kathleen. Three grown children live in a galaxy far, far away. Tom was the 2018 Board Chair for the St. Paul Area Chamber of Commerce.
