Baseball has been a huge part of my life for the past 5 years. My husband played at UNC Chapel Hill, his first cousin Rob played at UNC Chapel Hill, and their cousin Grant played at NC State. So I have attended maaaaany games. Our cousin Rob now plays for the Milwaukee Brewers. A lot of people Everyone thinks that when a baseball player gets drafted out of college they automatically start making millions and are playing on tv. This couldn't be further from the truth. They go straight to the minor leagues and make $1,200 A MONTH and eat pb&j sandwiches for almost every meal.

In the minor leagues you have to make it through rookie, low A, high A, AA, AAA, THEN to the big leagues (if you are one of the few that make it that far). Rob went through all these levels and was officially called up to the big leagues for the Brewers last season! Needless to say, our whole family is incredibly proud of him (and huge Brewers fans now!).

Rob is the closest thing to a brother that my husband has. They grew up right beside each other [even shared the same driveway], played baseball together their entire lives [even college], were best men in each other's weddings. We are going to the Brewers v. Nationals series in DC in July and we couldn't be more excited to watch him play! Unfortunately we haven't been able to make the trek to Milwaukee yet [thanks school] but hopefully in the near future.

Whether you're a baseball fan or not, if you see the brewers on tv and #47 is pitching, cheer loud!

Rob and his wife, Katie, had an adorable baby in August. Love my sweet niece!

 Our trip to the Cayman Islands 2 years ago... best trip ever! Take me back!

Go Rob, Go Brewers! We love you!
