The Kid Who Impersonated Craig Kimbrel? He Got to Meet the Man Tonight

Baseball Is Fun

Here’s something nice to sweeten your baseball evening.

Chicago White Sox closer set-up man Craig Kimbrel is known for, among other things, his idiosyncratic bent-over-arms-out-holding position while he reviews the signs from his catcher.

And it got better.
