GETTING TO KNOW JEFF BRIGHAM
Favorite baseball player:
Felix Hernandez, because he plays for my home town team and he is a competitor out on the mound
Favorite TV Shows:
Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, and How I Met Your Mother
I listen to “And We Danced” by Macklemore before every start.
First memory of baseball:
Every practice in t-ball our coach would race us around a fire hydrant deep in center field. The winner got a milkshake.
