That’s musician Glenn Donnellan of the National Symphony Orchestra. Sometimes, he wears black, three-button suits paired with a patterned tie. More relevant to this space, he also sometimes plays a violin made out of a baseball bat.
This is an enchanting video of his playing Eddie Van Halen’s “Eruption” on said violin made out of a baseball bat. It is very beautiful to me. If the National Symphony Orchestra did stuff like that on a regular basis, then I might consider supporting the arts rather than using an acetylene torch to incinerate any cash that comes my way.
So does this post not have a strong enough baseball connection for you? Fine. Consider that if you swapped out the “Glenn” in “Glenn Donnellan” for something like “Magnus” or “Declan,” then it would sound like someone who played alongside John McGraw and once killed a railcar porter while drunk on Dr. Tichenor’s.
