Marlins receive a helping hand

JUPITER, Fla. — A special Spring Training moment occurred in a spontanious way on Friday morning on field six at Roger Dean Stadium.

After Hanley Ramirez, Gaby Sanchez, Logan Morrison and Chris Coghlan, finished up their round of batting practice, hitting coach Eduardo Perez invited a couple of dozen children onto the field to help pick up the balls by the outfield fence.

The children hustled to the outfield, joined by the players. They collected all the baseballs, placing them into buckets.

The children had been watching the round of batting practice from behind the fences, and the invitation onto the field was a special treat.

Once the baseballs were all put away, a number of children asked for autographs from the players. When Ramirez finished signing, he carried a small child from the outfield back to his parents.

Joe, man, i gotta tell you. I am one who has been bashing Hanley since that (in)famous day he dogged running after that groundball. I’ve done it because this kid has an amazing potential to be MVP not once but at least a couple of times and it hurts when we don’t see him putting 100% of his efforts. With that said, i think he matured a lot from all of the ordeals he went through this last 2 seasons. Seeing him carrying this child really makes us hope that he is up to a monster season in 2012!

This is my son “Peyton” and he had a blast!!!! Thanks Joe for the great picture.

This is what Baseball is all about. Teams bringing smiles and happiness to the families, no matter the weather, lol. Nice picture Joe and my lil man P!
