Eric Gutierrez raised by baseball fanatics, plays for his family
It was approaching midnight as Eric Gutierrez sat in the car with his father, their passports in hand.
The cars ahead of them an endless sea as they waited to cross the border and get back home.
And as usual they were talking baseball. What Eric had done wrong that day.
What he had done right.
“He would be like, ‘You know what, when we get back we are going to hit,’” Gutierrez said. “(When we got back) no matter how late it was, we would always do a little soft toss into a net we had in the back yard.”
