From JetHawk to RedHawk

After being released by the Astros, Lancaster pitcher Jeff Icenogle has signed a contract with the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. But that's not the most interesting part of the article. Regard:

The Houston Astros thought different and signed him as a 22-year-old in 2007. It was too good of a story to be true; the great-grandson of Academy Award-winning actor Ed Begley Sr. who thought his career was done because of arm troubles.

Hang on. He's Ed Begley Jr's grandson?

“That’s all true,” he said.

Good luck to him.
