When I first friended Kittle on Facebook I asked him about a story I heard about him when he was in high school. Some of the guys that played baseball against him said Kittle routinely hit home runs into Lake Michigan from the old Whiting Park. Kittle said he recalled hitting a homer into the Lake, but couldn't remember who it was against.

When Kittle had his Indiana Sports Charities golf outing, my employer was a regular sponsor. They guys who had contact with Kittle spoke highly of him.

A few years ago, a guy was sent from work (beer distributor) and given Kittle's address with instructions to drop off two cases of Labatt in his garage. I have no idea what is was about, but it was done. Kittle wasn't in his garage.
