Owen J. Finnegan

Owen J. Finnegan

A lifelong sports fan born and raised in Wellesley and Needham, Massachusetts, Owen J. Finnegan has collected more than 400 sports trivia books and particularly likes to keep track of record-setting firsts. The self-described "rabid fan" of the Boston Bruins hockey team and a semi-retired civil engineer for the Town of Wellesley has appeared on "Calling All Sports" on WTKK (96.9 FM), a Boston talk radio station. An athlete himself, Finnegan played four years of baseball at Needham High and in the American Legion and once had a pitching tryout with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He lives with his family in Needham, Massachusetts.
