Panther Sibling Called Up By SF Giants

Conor Gillaspie, older brother of Milwaukee women's soccer player Makenzie, was called up to the Major Leagues by the San Francisco Giants on Saturday. Conor was drafted by the Giants with the 37th overall pick in the June 2008 MLB Amateur Draft just 92 days earlier. It was the quickest ascent to the majors in the club's storied history.

Here is the release from the Giants' official website.
