Royals starter Chris Young’s father passed away on Saturday night, but the veteran right-hander still elected to pitch on Sunday against the Indians. He dazzled, tossing five no-hit innings on 68 pitches before being lifted.
As Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports, Young wanted to start to honor his father. He has left the team to be with his family.
We at HardballTalk offer our condolences to the Young family for their loss. Chris certainly found a special way to honor his father.
