ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — We all know Kevin James Kiermaier as the Tampa Bay Rays' professional baseball center fielder.
But, one lucky baby knows him as dad.
Kiermaier's wife, Marisa, proudly held their son at Tropicana Field ahead of the Rays series game against the Blue Jays Thursday.
You know him as the center fielder for the Rays and two-time Gold Glove winner.
The center fielder wasn't the only one attracting attention, however.
Baby Kiermaier turned a lot of heads and created a lot of smiles as he made his way across the turf.
