Boston by Night
Baseball player with a natural talent with computers
Mike Thornton spend most of his life growing up in Houston, Texas being raised by his widowed father, a typical Texan family man. There isn’t a single time that Mike can remember where he and his weren’t butting heads together, usually over a reason more stupid than the last. It was only while doing two things that Mike could forget about whatever it was that his father and he were arguing, while on the computer and while playing baseball.
He started using his computer as a way to stay in touch with his favorite ant, mother’s side, a reporter in Boston named Christine Daniels. Having also grown up in Texas she could relate with her nephew and more often than not managed to calm him down after another fight. It was she in fact who awakened his interest in programming software by sending him a book on computers which he read front to cover, while trying everything out and took to it very quickly, even making notes in it on things he found out for himself.
The other was Baseball. While batting he can forget everything that is happening around him, focusing solely on the bat and the pitcher. He’s so that several colleges wanted to offer him a scholarship to get him on their team. However thanks to his aunt he was able to land a sports scholarship in Boston and close the book on his life in Texas. Mike does his best to be independent so as to not inconvenience his aunt and lives mostly on a combination of a inheritance left by his mom, of which he gets a monthly stipend, and his scholarship.
