Marisol Hernández was given the honors at the first game at Kauffman Stadium since her son’s death.
I am in awe of the strength and incapable of understanding the raw emotions that went into this first pitch.

The rest of the baseball world is busy thinking about home openers and no-pitch intentional walks, but this is a reminder that a lot of people are still working through some unimaginable pain. Best wishes to Hernández, family, friends, and the entire Royals organization.
