As a bit of background, I played catcher. Only played catcher. Fastpitch, not baseball, though I did catch more than a few neighborhood pickup baseball games with the boys. Fastpitch doesn’t really have a “bullpen” catcher because pitchers normally play all seven innings and if a new pitcher needs warming up, the backup catcher heads to the “bullpen” to catch. All levels of pro baseball have bullpen catchers. Sometimes, that’s their paid position. They aren’t actually “on” the team. Sometimes, they’re utility players and aren’t always in the bullpen. In the case of the Kenosha Kingfish, Brian Vance is a team player. And dancer. On this particular day, he was doing duty in the bullpen. The video went viral. For obvious reasons. So…for all the single ladies!
Psst. Now I want to write a baseball romance and model my hero after Brian!
