first_imgDo you want to hear a feel good story about baseball?  Here it is.Paul Goldschmidt is the first baseman of the Arizona Diamondbacks.  The announcers on an MLB Broadcast relayed a story about how in a recent pre-game Goldschmidt talked to 2 brothers while batting practice was going on.  The younger boy was recovering from brain tumor surgery.  The boy asked Paul if he could rub his batting practice bat for good luck.  Paul readily agreed.During the game, Goldschmidt made outs in his first 2 at bats, and in his third at the plate he cracked the bat.  The bat boy quickly grabbed his BP bat and handed it to Goldschmidt. (The bat the young boy had rubbed.)   As you would have it, Paul hit a home run with that bat and did it again in his subsequent trip to the plate.  The announcers didn’t say it, but I would bet that night the young boy’s recovery took a giant step forward.last_img
