Turnpike Troubadours Get Major League Love
I am the very first to admit it, I don't exactly understand the world of Sportball, but I'm fairly certain that being "name-dropped" on a baseball card is a cool thing.
Thanks to Arizona Diamondback pitcher, Archie Bradley, the Turnpike Troubadours can add "name-dropped on a baseball card" to their resume. Turnpike's bassist R.C. Edwards shared a picture of Archie's Rookie Card on his Facebook page that does indeed show some Man Fan love to the band.
Doing my extensive research...uhh, I mean I Googled...and discovered that Archie is not only a fan, he is also an Okie. Bradley was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma, and committed to play both football and baseball at the University of Oklahoma, but due to his high draft status, eventually signed a professional baseball contract.
And he's got great taste in music!
