OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Gunnar Sandberg unbuttoned his white
Athletics jersey and revealed a black Giants T-shirt underneath as
he met San Francisco closer Brian Wilson.
Good move, kid.
Both teams hosted Sandberg for Sunday's finale of the Bay Bridge
Series, just more than two months after the Marin Catholic High
School pitcher was hit by a line drive during a March 11 scrimmage
and suffered a life-threatening brain injury.
The De La Salle player who hit the ball, Zac Byers, joined
Sandberg and his father at the game, too. A's players signed
Sandberg's jersey, he visited both clubhouses and spent time on the
field during batting practice.
Sandberg, who wears a protective helmet and will have another
surgery Tuesday, plans to play baseball again next season - but
maybe just as a middle infielder.
