Jessica was a four-time first team All-American outfielder for Stanford’s women’s softball team and won two Olympic medals for Team USA.
Jessica has previously done a couple games for ESPN — Most notably, she was an analyst for Jake Arrieta’s no hitter over the Dodgers on August 30 (replacing the suspended Curt Shilling) on Sunday Night Baseball.
I thought it was fitting that Jessica shared the color commentary with John Kruk, since Krukkie looks like a softball player (Chicago 16″ style).
Actually, he had a pretty good career, finishing with a lifetime .300 batting average. His 100th, and last, homerun was for the White Sox in his last season (1995) when he batted .308. Unfortunately, he was 0-for-1 in stolen base attempts for the Sox.
In John’s last 4 years, he had batting averages of .323 / .316 / .302 / .308.
During that time, he had more walks than strikeouts (271 vs. 259).
