According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Walpole, Mass., outfielder Mike Rando is "with leather." Welcome to the club, Mike. We mentioned it over the weekend, but here's another view of his game-saving catch against Hamilton, Ohio, with slo-motion goodness, but sans perky sideline reporter Sophie Cortina. (She's right here).
Wallpole is located about 20 minutes southwest of Boston. So before the game, the team got a pep talk from Curt Schilling, Coco Crisp and Red Sox manager Terry Francona, and Rando's catch was shown on the scoreboard at Fenway Park. All well and good ... but check out the Walpole team introductions, below, and note who the kids' favorite players are. Two are tied for first with three votes each. They've gotta be Red Sox players, right? And one one of them certainly doesn't play for the Yankees. That would be crazy.
