John McDonald hits an emotional home run

Jun 21, 2010, 9:23 AM EST

The home run was enough as it was, but the quote is an absolute killer.

Jays’ infielder John McDonald buried his father on Friday.  In his first at bat back — on Father’s Day — he hit a home run.

Asked after the game what was going through his mind as he was circling the bases McDonald said “Probably the fact that I couldn’t call my dad after the game to tell
him.”

[gulp]

You guys go on without me for a few minutes. Got a little something in my eye.
