Closer Brandon Kintzer has been a bright spot for the Twins this season, dangling a 2.05 ERA while being a perfect 8-8 in save situations. What we didn't know about Kintzler was that he was once a daredevil on his bicycle.

Senior director of communications for the Twins, Dustin Morse, posted a video on Twitter on Thursday night sharing a story about the heroic youngster and the man who interviewed him was Colin Cowherd.

Currently, Cowherd is one of the best-known personalities in sports media. He used to work for ESPN and ESPN Radio but is now with FOX Sports 1.

But it was back when Cowherd was working for KVBC television in Las Vegas and he did a story on a young Kintzler using his bicycle to jump over a group of kids and adults. Check out the video below to see if Kintzler pulled off the stunt.
