Braves reliever Jason Grilli is quite a fan of April 12. It's not his birthday (Nov. 11), but it is an entire day that, as he imagines, is dedicated to him:

Yes, it's National Grilled Cheese Day, and MLB's grilled cheese ambassador is really excited about it.

In fact, it's actually National Grilled Cheese Month, too, and Grilli is holding a "Grilli Cheese Sandwich" contest for fans to submit their own personal grilled cheese recipes:

So go ahead, eat a grilled cheese today ... as long as Kevin Millar didn't make it:
