Father Of Athletics Pitching Prospect Brad Peacock Has Spent The Past Four Summers Living In A 6×12 Lawnmower Trailer

Rather than spending lots of money at hotels, or imposing upon his son, Jerry Peacock, the father of Oakland Athletics rookie pitcher Brad Peacock instead converted a landscape trailer into a second home. The elder Peacock traveled across the country to Brad’s minor league games and spent the nights in the trailer which was hitched to the back of his van. The 6×12 trailer that once hauled lawnmowers and weed whackers contains a bed, a tv, and even a portable bathroom. In the story link below, which also includes a picture of the unit, Jerry Peacock talks about following his son on the road and living in the trailer, how strange it is to stay in a hotel now that Brad is in the majors, and how the younger Peacock has yet to spend a night in the contraption.
