Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole, the #1 overall pick in the 2011 Draft, will be making his major league debut tonight against the Giants.. The game will be televised nationally on MLB Network (except in the Pittsburgh and San Francisco home markets). The world of baseball is excited. There's just one little awkward problem for Cole
He will be facing his girlfriend's brother in his major league debut.
Couldn't be more excited for Tuesday. @pirates @sfgiants #myboys #Bruins twitter.com/amy_lynn23/sta…

That's right: Cole's girlfriend Amy is the sister of Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford. Tonight, Amy has chosen her boyfriend over her family, but there still might be a bit of awkwardness going forward, especially if she fulfills her brother's expectation of wearing a half-Pirates, half-Giants hat.
