The players themselves, though, look like Greek gods, especially when you’re approximately 4’9”. “You should say something to them, see if they’ll come over,” my Dad said. I obliged, scared to offend the players and expecting nobody to respond. Somehow, I had made my way onto the field for batting practice; I was just happy to be there. Then, Gio Gonzalez—that Gio Gonzalez, the really good baseball...

Nationals’ lefty Gio Gonzalez went five innings, giving up six hits and six runs in what ended up an 8-6 loss to the Phillies.
