Re: Scoreboard Watching 2013
Daniel Nava does it again, I swear, the story of that guy's career would seem too unbelievable and corny for a kid's movie. Doesn't make his college team, doesn't get drafted or signed, contract bought for $1 from independent league team, works his way up to the majors and hits a grand slam on the first pitch he sees, gets DFA and clears waivers but works his way back up to the majors again, makes an opening day roster for the first time at age 30, and hits a game winning HR in his first home opener start.
