I really enjoyed watching Kerry Wood pitch. I’m glad he knew it was time to stop playing and went out on his own terms.
The best part of the story:
“My favorite memory and best memory in 14 years was walking off the field and having Justin run out and meet me,” Wood said. “You can’t beat that. I wasn’t expecting it. I knew he might be in the dugout, but I did not expect him to run out and hug me and he didn’t want to let go. You can’t put anything above that.”
Sounds like a great kid. Probably a very bittersweet moment for his Dad and he wanted to make sure he was there for him.
