Last Saturday, the Pittsburgh Pirates placed outfielder Starling Marte on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised right hand. On Thursday, a young fan made him a “Get Better” sign.
Soon Marte found out and came out to meet the little guy.
The sign made Marte really happy.
So he hung it in the dugout, like a proud parent displaying their child’s work on the fridge.
Unfortunately, the Pirates lost to the Brewers 4-0, but everyone involved received an A for Effort. Or would that be an E for Effort? I don’t know. Everyone involved gets a sticker.
