Jirschele Family Takes Blue Collar Approach to Big Leagues

CLINTONVILLE (WLUK) -- FOX 11 Sports Reporter/Anchor Dylan Scott caught up with Clintonville's Mike and Justin Jirschele at D Mitchell Interiors, prior to their upcoming spring training assignments.

Members of one of Wisconsin's most prominent baseball families, the father and son have garnered a great deal of respect as they've moved through the professional ranks.

After 36 years in the minors as a player and coach, Mike is entering his fifth year as third base coach for the Kansas City Royals.

At just 27-years old, Justin became the youngest manager in the minors last year, leading the White Sox' Single-A Affiliate, Kannapolis, to its first playoff berth since 2009.
