Tim Anderson’s impromptu Q&A on Twitter

White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson is nothing if not a man of the people. The 2019 MLB Batting Champion hopped on Twitter Tuesday evening for an impromptu Q&A session with fans and he opened up about everything from bat flips to college football to what he did this Thanksgiving. If you missed the tweet-storm, here are some of his answers.

On hitting off KC Royals Pitcher Brad Keller:

On bat flips and home run celebrations:

Farthest homer he’s ever seen?

On Yasmani Grandal joining the White Sox:

Biggest adjustment from 2018 to 2019 (Anderson had a +.095 batting average increase from 2018 to 2019).

Andrew Vaughn wants to wear No. 99 as homage to Ricky 'Wild Thing' Vaughn

We're not saying Andrew Vaughn is ready for the Major Leagues, but...

Vaughn is, of course, referring to Charlie Sheen's Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn from the 1989 film 'Major League.' Sheen's character in the movie is a hot-headed, hard-throwing pitcher for the Cleveland Indians with a checkered past. Real-life Andrew Vaughn is a White Sox first base prospect, selected by the team in the first round of the 2019 draft.

So hopefully, outside of their shared last names, there don't end up being too many parallels between the two.

As for Vaughn's wish, the only White Sox player to ever don the No. 99 was Manny Ramirez back in 2010. Big shoes to fill.
