Ask him his memories from the Cape Cod league.


Looks like he may have moved around a lot - born in NJ, high school in FL, college in MA. Some stories behind that?

Brian’s Father here
Here are some human interest questions
3 other Brothers
His older brother USArmy Ranger and younger brother Freshman Pitcher at UNC Chapel Hill. Ask him how him and the Ranger used to prank the younger UNC pitcher by putting a Rock(Piece of Coral) in Shawn’s diaper on the beach when he was 3 years old

Also ask about how he bet his Dad when he was 9 that he could win the Belly Buster Challenge at our Local Ice Cream Parlor by eating 18 scoops of ice cream in 15 minutes
(result He made it to 17 scoops and then turned blue and ran to bathroom to hug the toilet for 15 Min)

Also ask him about being on the field at this year’s super bowl with his gf who’s a New England Pats cheerleader
