There are two seperate stories on the Pirates Official web-site worth noting. One is in the mailbag and concerns Solomon Torres. Just hours after announcing his retirement, he sent a note to the Pirates beat writer, asking her to thank the fans of Pittsburgh for his time in Pittsburgh. In light of how his time here ended, I thought that was pretty high ground.

The other story relates to Joe Maddon, the Rays manager, who is honoring the Challis family by having them accept the Chuck Tanner Award on his behalf. He apparently developed a deep bond with the family when the Rays were in town.

These stories help put a little bit of humanity back in a sport that too often is better known for greed and scandal.

Someone who is more computer literate can attach the links, if you would like.
