That's my first cousin-in-law. I sure wish that he would come play softball with my team this spring. We could really use someone that could actually hit and catch.

But they have you, don't they J.D.... and you're a stud!

By the way... Update since we posted this... Chris just hit his first Grand Slam yesterday against Purdue. I'd say he's definitely on a roll.
