Jack Kruger is a nerd.
He’s a 6’1”, standout catcher who has started 52 games for Mississippi State’s SEC Champion baseball team. He bats .350, owns a slugging percentage of .562 and has forearms that could earn him a lifetime gig in Hollywood playing a mob henchman. He’s got 71 hits, zero errors, and after spending an entire game squatting as a catcher in the middle of a hot, Mississippi day last Friday, he managed to hit an inside-the-park home run in the eighth inning to ensure his Bulldogs won game one of their Regional.
And he’s a big ol’ nerd.
