Meet Your Hosts

Derek Ficken

Derek has been involved in the hobby ever since going to 7-11 and buying a pack of cards for his payment each time he mowed his parent's lawn. He is originally from Fremont, CA and moved to Dallas, TX in 1998. He still roots for the San Francisco 49ers, even if he catches flack for it at the Beckett office. He is an avid fan of all sports including Soccer and MMA. He previously worked for 100.3 JACK FM in Dallas and hopes to create a new avenue for Beckett Media in the form of radio. He has his own sports-talk radio show online that records every Saturday at www.nateandderekshow.tumblr.com.

He has been hooked in the hobby ever since. Justin loves watching all sports, espcecially baseball. He was born in small town Wisconsin but has moved all over the country. He has been in Texas for over 17 years and has a wife and 4 dogs. Justin is currently the analyst for Hockey, Racing, Wrestling, and Golf.
