John McDonald hits an emotional home run

1 Comment

Jays’ infielder John McDonald buried his father on Friday.  In his first at bat back — on Father’s Day — he hit a home run.

Asked after the game what was going through his mind as he was circling the bases McDonald said “Probably the fact that I couldn’t call my dad after the game to tell
him.”

[gulp]

You guys go on without me for a few minutes. Got a little something in my eye.
