On the personal side, Professor Pingle grew up in a cattle ranching family in Southern Oregon, never thinking about being a professor of anything until his senior year in college. He has lifted more hay bales and picked up more sticks than most people have ever seen. He tied another player for the highest batting average on a state championship baseball team in high school, and pitched a no-hitter. He plays piano, guitar, and bass, enjoys writing songs, and enjoys singing with his wife and three girls.
