Lorenzo Cain: A Peek Into The Life


You might know Lorenzo Cain as the high-flying, ultra-talented center fielder for the Kansas City Royals. A future All-Star who flashes the leather, as well as a giant smile, as well as anyone in the game.

His exciting play in center field captured the imagination of MLB fans everywhere during the Royals’ magical 2014 postseason run.

However, as he tells Major League Baseball’s partner, Coldwell Banker, in an upcoming promotional venture, “Home Field Advantage”, he’s pretty laid back off the field — Some might even say he’s boring.

The well-known real estate agency has chosen Cain to highlight in its series that shows an inside looks at athletes’ homes — and how they spend their time in them.

After starting this season with Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Shane Victorino of the Boston Red Sox, it’s now Cain’s turn. In the video below, you’ll get a sneak peek of how he and his wife Jenny are adjusting to their new roles as parents, and what life is like off the diamond.

It’s pretty hard not to like a guy who not only is good at baseball and looks like he has fun playing it, but is just a regular Joe off the field who enjoys video games, barbecue and hanging with his family.

This is a great idea from MLB and Coldwell Banker to show how these athletes we put on a pedestal, are a lot of the times, not too different than us. Except when they are doing this:

Although he is bold and confident on the field, in reality it’s not that surprising a guy who is the center of teammate Sal Perez’s Instagram hiatuses, is mild-mannered off the field.

As entertaining as it would be to see how the jovial Perez spends his time when he’s not pounding baseballs and throwing out would-be base stealers, it’s great to see how a humble kid from a small Florida town, who didn’t even play baseball until high school, is now making a home for himself in Kansas City.

The 2014 American League Championship Series MVP started 2015 right where he left off last season, batting .330, with three home runs and 13 RBI so far. His outfield play has been just as dominant, providing fans with plenty of excitement while roaming the Kauffman Stadium outfield.

Fans can only hope when the season is over, he’ll be Lorenzo Cain: Mild-mannered, family man, and Gold Glove winner.
