Craig Kimbrel hooked up a young fan after seeing how the child imitated him at a game.
Kimbrel has a unique delivery and pitch routine. He will hang his right arm off to the side at a bent, 90-degree elbow. The 10-year-old fan did his best Kimbrel impression, and the Chicago White Sox reliever saw it. He ended up giving the fan an autograph and some cleats.

That was a nice way to hook up the youngster.
We’ve seen some other young impersonators in other sports too. It’s enjoyable to see the young fans imitate their favorite athletes’ routines.
