Joe Saunders honors Nick Adenhart

3 Comments

Jim from Halos Heaven alerted me to something I hadn’t noticed: While with the Angels, Joe Saunders wore uniform number 51, but now that he’s with the Diamondbacks he has changed his number to 34, which was Nick Adenhart’s number.  He hasn’t said anything in public about it since the trade, but the assumption is that he’s wearing 34 as a tribute.

If so, it’s a very classy and touching move by Saunders.
