Jonah Arenado: Baseball Family Even Competitive In Wiffle Ball – “Fights Break Out”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on!

Today we visit the California League and check on San Jose Giants infielder Jonah Arenado, the younger brother of Colorado Rockies All Star 3B Nolan Arenado. He was San Jose’s MVP in 2016 and now he’s battling to have a hot finish this season. As of Monday, Jonah was hitting .262, 9 HR, 58 RBI.

Arenado talked to The Sports Virus about growing up playing baseball and sometimes wiffle ball with his older brother Nolan (Rockies All Star 3B): …“When I was younger Nolan was always focused, he always worked the hardest. I worked hard, but I was never on his level. We always had something going on… wiffle ball all the time with the cousins and brothers…We’re a competitive family so fights break out in wiffle ball, that’s not a surprise for us, that’s just how it goes. Honestly, I think that helps us for when things like this (pro ball) matter, when you want to get competitive it’s not like a switch I need to turn on, I know it’s there because I’ve been doing it my whole life.”
