Locked On Guardians host Justin Lada has co-hosted Locked On Guardians podcast since October 2022. He was lucky enough to grow up in Cleveland right when the city rekindled its love affair with the baseball team thanks to a new stadium and success unseen in 40+ years. Thanks to an opportunity to cover Cleveland’s minor league system right out of high school, Justin has built a background in writing about the franchise’s farm system since 2007. Since graduating from the University of Akron, Justin has written about the Cleveland franchise on a full-time and freelance basis for the News-Herald/Morning Journal, Guardians Baseball Insider, Next Year in Cleveland, scouting/writing minor league prospects for Prospects Live.
