L.J. Hoes hit a homer and made a nice diving catch in last night’s Astros win over the A’s. Even better: he did it for his mom. Here’s Hoes after the game:

“It’s a really good feeling. Especially cause it was my mom’s birthday and that was the last thing she told me to do, was like, ‘Hit a homer for me.’ To be able to do that for her, it was a special thing.”

Now Mrs. Hoes, let’s mess with L.J.’s emotions: ask him to hit two doubles and reach on a catcher’s interference. Challenge your son to show you just how much he loves you.

    It’s a good thing he didn’t hit a triple and reach home on an error…Paul O’Neill style… His mom would’ve been pissed.
