AJ Ellis An Unlikely Dodger Hero AND Uncrustables Advocate
Bill Plaschke of the L.A. Times has a feature on A.J. Ellis, who is one of the more unlikely occasional heroes on the Dodgers this year. Solid stuff as far as profiles go ? they?re always better for non-stars than they are for stars ? but as always, one thing sticks out to me. Usually that thing is some weird factoid. This is no different:
On a team filled with sophisticated and popular stars, Ellis is the guy who passes out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. His father runs a Smucker?s plant that produces the popular ?Uncrustables? and Ellis is a leading advocate.
