Twins' Max Kepler retraces steps in trip back to Germany

BERLIN (AP) When Max Kepler makes an acrobatic catch for the Minnesota Twins, perhaps he owes a bit to his parents.

Back in his hometown of Berlin, the 26-year-old outfielder paid tribute to his parents, professional ballet dancers Kathy Kepler and Marek Rozycki.

"I used to sit in the wings and watch them perform," he said Monday during an interview with The Associated Press. "I was there with my sister, once, twice a month, watching them do their thing. So I think I subconsciously I learned a lot from just the way they go about themselves on a professional level."
