What race is MLB Player Ian Desmond

Baseball player Ian Desmond's exact race has not been specified online by himself or the media at this time. However, many fans have stated that they believe he is half Caucasian and half African-American. His nationality is known to be American, while his exact ethnicity is not known publicly.

Desmond grew up in Florida with his three siblings. His mother, Pattie Paradise, is a hairdresser, whom Desmond considers to be a major inspiration. Colorado Rockies pitcher Josh Roenicke is Ian Desmond's brother-in-law, as Roenicke married his sister Nikki in 2010. Ian Desmond became a father in April 2011, when his wife Chelsey gave birth to their son Grayson.

The 2012 Washington Nationals are having their best year since rejoining MLB in 2005, and are considered very likely to make the playoffs for the first time since rejoining the league. The team had a scare when Ian Desmond appeared to limp a bit after hyperextending his knee on August 21, 2012. But luckily, it turned out that it wasn't a serious injury and Desmond will most likely be healthy for the stretch run.
