Phillies' Pat Neshek: Sport needed this U.S. World Baseball Classic victory

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Pat Neshek is a baseball purist, a Phillies reliever with a funky windup who finds pride in studying and appreciating the game's past through his extensive memorabilia collection.

The right-handed reliever is a Park Center High School product and former Twins draft pick, who has played for a number of teams since leaving Minnesota.
