Rays Kevin Kiermaier a hit on MLB Network "Play Ball" show



Rays Gold Glove CF Kevin Kiermaier shows off many of his talents - including his, well, not-quite- rapping skills - during an appearance on MLB Network's Play Ball show, which airs 10 a.m. Saturday

The weekly show features an MLB star providing advice to kids on playing the game, recalling their path to the majors and providing tips. Kiermaier is interviewed by MLB Network analyst Harold Reynolds. the brother of agent Larry Reynolds, and Kiermaier's comfort is obvious in the interview, which was done at the University of Tampa.

Among the more interesting tidbits is that Kiermaier fancies himself as a pretty good shortstop: "I played shortstop all throughout high school and I can make all the spectacular plays and I struggle with the routine plays, that's why I ventured out back to centerfield. I like being in all the action. I feel like shortstop is a position where you can display all that."
