We accidentally missed the Eckstein article
in one of the most venerable newspapers in human history. Us-a culpa.
Everyfuckingbody finally familiar with the smallness of David Eckstein, and the way he hustles down the line like almost every other major league baseball player? No?
Here are the Cliffs' Notes:
little player who does big things
neither was a flashy play
workmanlike things that help teams win
"He's the toughest guy I've ever seen in a uniform" (proving to be the most irresistable quote of 2006 for sportswriters)
5 feet 7 inches
looks like he wandered into the lineup from an American Legion tournament
broke his bat
"our club responds to how hard he plays"
walk-on at the University of Florida
