In today's Boston Globe, there is a wonderful article on Mets newly acquired OF, Trot Nixon. Stan Grossfeld is the author, and it truly deserves a look.
In brief, he thoroughly describes Nixon's character, his never say die attitude, as well as some nice words about him from former and current team mate, Pedro Martinez.
The most important thing is, is that Nixon is a tremendous team mate. He works hard, leads by example, and is quick to talk to, congratulate, and put an arm around a team mate.
A real nice article, and strongly urge you to read about this hard working ball player.
