Brett Gardner had 127 at-bats without a home run in the majors last season. But he took the second pitch of the game over the fence in right field. His wife Jessica and three-month-old son Hunter were at the game.
“I don’t know if he saw it but he was here and it will be a good story to tell him about the first game he ever went to,” said Gardner, who took his son into the clubhouse to show him off when he came out of the game.
Gardner was 1 for 3 in the game.
No audio clips today. All the interviews were outside and the wind screwed up the sound. Hopefully tomorrow.
