As a frequent listener of MLB Network Radio, I have come to appreciate the level headed analysis of former Mets and Orioles GM Jim Duquette (he’s the cousin of current Orioles GM Dan). This summer, Jim was gone for a while, because his ten year old daughter Lindsey needed a kidney transplant, and he was the donor.
All went well, and Jim and Lindsey were at the Baseball Writers Association dinner, receiving the “You Gotta Have Heart” award. Both gave speeches, and…well, just watch. They’re both pretty cool.
