On this day 33 years ago, MLB pitcher Bronson Arroyo was born into the world. Bronson Arroyo has a special place in our hearts. After all, it’s not everyday that you see a skinny white dude with corn-rows. Likewise, Major League pitchers that enjoy serenading their teammates in the locker room with their acoustic guitar don’t come around very often. That’s special.
Because of this, we here at the JoeSportsFan take great pride in following the trails and tribulations of the magnificent Bronson Arroyo.

Truth be told, we’ve only heard Bronson Arroyo sing one song, and that was The Fray’s “Over My Head“. The performance scored quite high on our “douchebag scale”, but quite frankly, the dude must be pretty good considering he played the guitar in the Boston locker room in front of Manny and Ortiz and still arrived in Cincinnati with all of his limbs.
That says something.
