It’s Monday! Who’s excited?! If these phrases together seem confusing to you then you obviously have not been keeping up with TCD MCM’s! It’s Man Crush Monday peeps!
So without further a due, we are pleased to introduce you to this week’s MCM: Darrell Miller Jr.!
Miller Jr. is a catcher for the UCLA baseball team. But let’s just say this guy has quite the family background in sports. Miller Jr. is son to former big leaguer Darrell Miller who played for the Angels in the ’80s, and his uncle Reggie Miller and aunt Cheryl Miller are both in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
For those of you who are clearly still going through puberty and don’t know who Reggie Miller is, this is the guy who straight embarrassed the Knicks in the 1995 East Semis by scoring eight points in nine seconds for the Pacers to win the game. But back to Darrell! At 6’2, 220lbs, besides being a total BABE, Miller Jr. is also a total bad ass on the field. Just some of his highlights from the past season include appearing in 55 games, making 53 starts (52 at catcher, one at designated hitter), hitting .257 with 19 runs and 27 RBI. He also has a slugging percentage of .351 and an on-base percentage of .324. Ugh, if you’re baseball girls like us, these numbers (as a redshirt sophomore) just make you swoon! He has even been described by on air announcers as the best batter west of the Mississippi.
Aye, AYE! We’ll be rooting for that cute face next season Mr. Miller Jr.! And somehow I think after this post, we won’t be the only ones! Ladies, meet this week’s TCD MCM…
Darrell Miller Jr.!
Until Next Time,
