At the end of the day, these guys are playing a game. We can glorify and magnify it all we want. But it’s still a game. You can’t lose sight of what’s most important. The Red Sox Dustin Pedroia is fully aware of this.
Back in 2009, Dustin missed the all-star game because he wife was giving birth to their first child. On Wednesday night, in the middle of a game versus the Yankees, manger Bobby Valentine got word that Dustin’s pregnant wife went into labor again. Bobby relayed this info to Dustin who didn’t waste time doing what he had to do.
