Cubs pitcher Ben Brown was born on 9/9/99

now THAT is a chicago cubs pitcher, wow
Is Ben Brown wearing tennis shoes from the 1980s?

Ben Brown has an incredible birthday. September 9, 1999. That’s 9/9/1999. If I ever got an autograph from him, I’d want him to inscribe it with “born on 9/9/99”.

His uniform number is 32. Thirty-two?  Shouldn’t it be something related to 9?

  • Miguel Amaya has 9. Ok.
  • Shota Imanaga has 18. Nuts. 
  • Seiya Suzuki has 27. Wow. All the 9 numbers are getting taken up. 
  • Jordan Wicks has 36. Goodness… 9×4 would have been cool. 
  • Nobody has 45, 54, 63
  • Javier Assad has 72.

Ben Brown should wear

The best would be 81 (9×9). No Cub has ever worn 81. Man. 81 should be his number. In Spring Training he wore .

Maybe Ben Brown’s math is off. 86 is so close to 81.

Ben Brown could also wear

There’s always 99. Two Cubs have worn

  • So Taguchi (2009)
  • Todd Hundley (2001)

The mathematical connection between 32 and 9

So why ?

3² = 9
Ben Brown is trying to put three-squared on his uniform.
