I woulda watched the whole thing, instead of just listening to an inning on the radio while I was running errands. While I was listening I heard the A's score two runs, so I was in on part of the excitement. It was early days, though (fourth inning) so I imagine no one had an idea what was coming.
At least his grandmother knew to be there. His mother--a single mom--died of skin cancer when he was a senior in high school and his grandmother raised him after that. Just to add to the human interest.
Such a strange game, baseball, when the excitement builds because nothing is happening. It's like watching someone defuse a bomb, but with less deadly consequences. Love it.
Pictures are from the SFGate article. Video with TV and radio calls are on MLB.com. And I didn't know until today that the past tense of "throw" when it relates to baseball is "throwed." I find that amazingly disturbing.
