Well, at least the kid wasn’t asking Craig Counsell; that would REALLY have been setting himself up for disappointment.
“I’ve got to tell you guys a story before you go,” [Casey] McGehee told reporters. “It was pretty cool.”
“This morning, I got to meet a little kid. His name’s Clayton,” McGehee said. “Clayton was being pretty shy, and I kept asking him, ‘Do you have any questions for me?’ He wouldn’t ask me anything. Finally, jokingly, his dad asks me, ‘Why don’t you hit a home run for him?’”
McGehee scoffed. He’d hit five home runs all season, none since July 6 and one in his last 63 games.
“If it was that easy, I would have had one by now,” McGehee answered. “How about we just go for I don’t screw anything up for the kid today? That was good enough for him.”
But wouldn’t you know it? McGehee hit a go-ahead two-run home run off Cardinals starter Edwin Jackson in the first inning. McGehee hit another go-ahead two-run homer off Jackson in the third for his second career multihomer game, and then connected on a solo shot in the seventh for what McGehee believes is the first three-homer game of his life.
