Evan Fahrbach was born and raised in Kansas. Evan grew up in Wichita and fell in love with sports while going to Wichita State basketball and baseball games with his parents and friends. After realizing, at a young age, that he probably wasn’t going to make the big-bucks being able to play sports professionally, Evan started focusing on radio play-by-play.
