This will forever be one of my favorite baseball stories:
There he was: hard-nosed Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, crying. Not because the Nationals had won three games in a row for just the second time all season. No, Robinson wept at the thought of humiliating LeCroy, of disrespecting a fellow player and the game he loved so much.
“I hated that he got emotional, I told him I wasn’t good enough for somebody to cry over,” said LeCroy, who was blown away by the size of the scrum of reporters waiting at his locker when he arrived.
