ESPN's Jerry Crasnick wrote about Brian Dozier. The story is really interesting and talks about how multifaceted the second baseman is. We saw his ability to do a Rubik's Cube. His work at home and abroad. His willingness and drive to learn Spanish, and his ability to adapt as a hitter.

 

The story is really good. Take a look at discuss.

It is a good story. I had posted it in the "national publications" thread also, but this is a better idea.

 

It's hard not to root for someone that lives his values, no matter what those values are.

Dozier seems like one of the truly fine people out there. Fun to read this. Thanks

Especially when those values appear to be benign in nature. If someone is quietly living their life and trying to be a good person in the process, that's more than enough for me.

 

This article makes me like Dozier a little bit more.

At the risk of mixing forums, and despite what many of us might encounter through media, I would say that is way that the vast majority of Christians (and others) live. I applaud him for that too.
