Wood is up to bat

by Liz

My favorite memory of Kerry Wood's career involved an unlikey, at least for a pitcher, event. It was durng the 1998 season, and I was just finshing up my freshman year of college. The bases were loaded and the pitcher was up to bat. Kerry Wood stepped up to the plate and hit a grand slam. It was his first home run in the major leagues. Later that game I bought a Kerry Wood shirt that I still have. There are a few holes in it, but just as he was my favorite player, it is my favorite Cubs shirt.
