Joc Pederson's brother, Champ, helped Warriors coach Steve Kerr with his pregame media session
From time to time, you might catch Joc Pederson's older brother, Champ Pederson, doing things like hugging Yasiel Puig after home runs or throwing ceremonial first pitches at Dodger Stadium. Every time Champ pops up, it's a great moment.
Another great moment came on Friday night, when the Golden State Warriors held Special Needs Family Appreciation Night before their game with the Sacramento Kings at Oracle Arena. Before he announced his starting lineup for the game, Warriors coach Steve Kerr brought out Champ -- who works for the Warriors as a part-time finance assistant -- to help him with the media address:
Amazing, sweet moment as Steve Kerr brings up Champ Pederson on @Warriors special needs night to help w/pregame media before he does starting lineups. Champ is 30, works part-time as W’s finance assistant since last fall. Big brother of @Dodgers Joc Pederson (@yungjoc650). pic.twitter.com/SYHgDI5J1m— Janie McCauley (@JanieMcCAP) March 17, 2018
Champ is truly a champ.
