Baseball reunites Lucroy brothers

MILWAUKEE -- David Lucroy is a right-handed pitcher for the Lakeshore Chinooks, a collegiate wood bat club that plays home games just north of Milwaukee. Most players on that team are placed with host families, but not Lucroy. He has real family in town.

His older brother is Jonathan Lucroy, the Brewers' starting catcher. Jonathan and wife Sarah already have a young daughter, and now they joke about raising two kids.

"He's actually calling me and my wife, 'dad' and 'mom,'" Jonathan Lucroy said.

It has been a while since the Lucroy boys -- Jonathan turns 27 on Thursday and David will be 21 in September -- were under the same roof. Jonathan has mostly been away since the Brewers made him their third-round Draft pick in 2007. They also drafted David in the 29th round last year, but he opted for college at East Carolina instead.

"Usually, it's only Christmas and other holidays," Jonathan Lucroy said. "I never get to see him during the holidays because he's always playing. I'm pretty happy that he's here and we can spend a little time. Really, what's most important is that he gets to hang out with his niece."
