Zodiac Sign: Taurus Male Bull

1. Supportive of LGBTQ Community
Many followers of Kiermaier likely know that this player is a supporter of the LGBTQ community.
In the immediate aftermath of the horrible events that happened in Orlando at Pulse night club, Kiermaier and his team of Tampa Rays honored victims and their families by wearing “We are Orlando” shirts, replete with Pride colors.
2. Originally from the Midwest
Kevin is from the Midwest and was born and raised in the mid-sized town of Ft. Wayne, Indiana. He attended Bishop Luers Catholic High School.
Later, he attended college at Parkland College, a 2-year community school in Champaign, Illinois. And he didn’t just end up going to Parkland on the fly – he was asked to attend after the head coach saw his playing skills during a game.
3. He’s big time humble
Unlike a lot of ballplayers are can be narcissistic, Kevin is very humble. In fact he’s so humble, he didn’t even care about how much money he would make as an MLB player – or even if he’d get a sign on bonus.
SB Nation reported the following when Kevin was first contracted with the MLB:
“He didn’t care that the call came so much later than expected, nor did he about the amount of signing bonus he would get, all he wanted to do was begin his professional career and show that he could make it.”
4 . Humble Part II
Just to add to his cuteness factor, Kevin has been spotted driving around Ft. Wayne, IN by a local news outlet driving his parents old Dodge Caravan. How many major league players do this?!
By the way, according to his Twitter account, he’s a country music fan. We wonder if he listens to his favorite vocalists while banging around town in his p’s car?
5. He almost went into law enforcement
Had Kevin not made baseball his career, he was heavily considering law enforcement.
Everything changed for him when playing a game against Adam’s Central in High School. That’s when the coach from Parkland scouted him and the rest is history.
6. He’s had some injuries
Like many athletes, Kevin has had his fair share of injuries. In May, he fractured two bones in his left hand while trying to catch a fly ball.
In April of 2015, he suffered a head contusion after colliding with another player. At the time of this posting, he’s recovered and back playing ball. Check out this YUMMY video that is absolutely adorable of him talking about his fractured wrist. OMG – don’t you just want to die?
Imagine if Kevin and Bryce Harper somehow got together!?
7. He carries a BIG baseball bat
Hey, we’re just not saying that as a wishful metaphor. Check out this promo shot Kevin did for #makeithappen from his twitter account. Oh and sorry guys, this player is already taken – and if we might say she is beautiful!
