Kyle Farnsworth Newsbeat

Kyle Farnsworth is a defensive lineman now, and he leads his team in sacks

Good news everyone!

Kyle Farnsworth is ... listen, there are a lot of descriptions that walk a fine line between libelous and accurate, so let’s just say that he’s different. He could take your nose off with one well-placed karate chop, and then he would probably do something weird with the nose.

So it’s completely bizarre and perfectly logical that 321 days after throwing his last major league pitch, the 39-year-old Farnsworth is leading his Florida Football Alliance team in sacks and tackles.

We’re talking real, minor league, tackle football with with big dudes. Of course Farnsworth is thriving. Of course he is.
