Read all about it! Ballplayers do a good deed!

It is easy to be critical of major league baseball players. They are paid huge amounts of money and when they fail it is front of tens of thousands of witnesses. Occasionally, they lose their self control in the face of abusive fan behavior.

I bring this up as a lead in to applaud the Red players for their actions Wednesday night. A grandfather and his grandson were attending the game when the grandfather collapsed and had to be rushed to the hospital where he later died. The players temporarily "adopted" the 6 year old boy a kept him in the dugout for the rest of the game making sure the child wasn't too scared while waiting for his parents to arrive.
"We play a game," Griffey told the Enquirer. "What he was going through doesn't compare. It was important that the little guy not be by himself."

Bill read that in the P.D. this morning almost brought a tear to my eye. Plus they won the game.
