Biography: Naekel was picked up as a hired gun early in the Lagers season, mainly because he is exceptionally
tall and the team needed a 1st baseman. It was a match made in heaven. His affinity
for booze, hookers, and off-color humor, paired with a general distaste for Steely Dan music
and men with well-adorned pony tails have made him an apparent welcome addition to the Lagers clubhouse.

In his free time, Naekel fights the demons of his past as a diagnosed "social addict", a crippling disease that forces him
to participate in anything involving cheap beer, dive bars, strippers, pub crawls, and loosely
organized drinking competitions. His trusty sidekick/companion in his endeavors is a gaseous English Bulldog named "Percy".
