As I was watching the Giants game earlier this week, they were playing the Phillies,I noticed that the  the starter was Vance Worley for the Philadelphia Phillies and he looked ethnic.  With some research, his mother Shirley, is full Chinese who came from Hong Kong and his dad is white – making him Half-Asian and Half-white.

This mixed Asian male,Vance Worley, Grew up in Sacremento, California and graduated from McClatchy High School in Sacramento and attended Long Beach State College. He currently is a starting pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies.

His nickname  is the “Vanimal” and he is also the fith “Ace” on the Phillies dominant pitching baseball team. He breaks the typical Asian Male Stereotype and is actually pretty tall for a typical Asian; he is 6’2” 200lbs. I couldn’t find any other information on him, but did find plenty of pictures.

Looking at the pictures you’ll notice that Half-Asian and Half-White males have a very unique look, you can check out Daniel Henney as well. Vance Worley in the minors

    Vance Worley is AN AWESOME PITCHER AND IS BELOVED IN THE PHILADELPHIA AREA BY ALL PHILLIE FANS! THE PHILLIE FANS ENDEARED HIM WITH THE NICKNAME “VANIMAL,” BUT WE FANS NEED TO GIVE HIM A NEW ONE. HE WILL PITCH FOR THE NATIONAL LEAGUE EASTERN DIVISION CHAMPION PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES WHEN THEY TRIUMPHANTLY WIN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE PENNANT AND BATTLE FOR THE WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP OF 2011!
