I can't remember if I posted this before. Matthew LeCroy was part of a very funny occurrence. Spring training, 2004. Mientkiewicz gets a single in the second half of a game. LeCroy asks Gardy if he can go in to pinch run. Gardy gives the thumbs up and makes the move. Mientkiewicz said after the game that waiting for LeCroy to get from the dugout to first base was the longest two and a half minutes of his life.
This reminds me of one of my all-time favorite baseball quotes. One of the Braves announcers, not sure which one, said, "Watching Greg Maddux leg out a triple has replaced the Kentucky Derby as the most exciting two minutes in sports."
