The Discovery Channel’s Shark Week wrapped up a few days ago, but former Irish two-sport standout and current Chicago Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija (nicknamed “Shark”) also spent some time on television recently.
Samardzija appeared on MLB Network’s Intentional Talk on Tuesday, prior to his team’s game at Miller Park in Milwaukee.
Click the image below to see the nine-minute segment, as Chris Rose and Kevin Millar ask the Valparaiso, Ind. native a series of questions, several of which had to do with his time at Notre Dame.
Samardzija is 8-11 with a 4.17 ERA and 146 strikeouts this season. He’ll be on the hill tomorrow at 2:20 pm ET, when the Cubs return home for a series against Colorado.
