Kevin Kiermaier attempted to eat a steak bigger than his head

Give Kevin Kiermaier credit: He never shies away from the big challenge. For example, he could have watched that home run go over his head and nobody would have said a word. But he went for it. And this happened:

Kiermaier takes the same life philosophy into his meals. He didn’t have to try to eat a 35 ounce ribeye steak with vegetables, two salads, two regular sides and a bag of homemade donuts. But try he did.

So he just missed. But he tried. And trying will get you more hits than misses. And it was for a great cause as he raised $4,000 for the Friends of Joshua House foundation. So while he tried and missed, by no means did Kevin Kiermaier fail.

But he’ll feel it once spring training starts and he has to lose those two or three extra pounds.
