Former Barnstormer Jerome Williams Goes Viral

One of the most popular baseball videos right now is of Houston Astros pitcher Jerome Williams playing catch with a young Seattle Mariners fan. While warming up, he had no idea he was being filmed...and that it would go viral.   It's always fun to follow a Barnstormer on his path back to Major League Baseball.  It is really cool to see the Jerome that was in Lancaster clowning and having fun with fans and teammates still has the love of baseball.  The first time we met Jerome and asked him for an autograph, he looked at us with a straight face and said, "No".  He then turned to walk away, looked back with a huge smile on his face, and said, "I'm just messin".  He came back, signed our cards, and talked to us for a while.  He had gone from the Major Leagues to Independent baseball in Lancaster, PA and was still having fun.  It's good to see that he is still having fun!  If you listen, in the background you can hear "Best day of my Life" playing.  I'm sure it is a day that Mariners fan will never forget!  Way to go Jerome!!!
