Mike Moustakas reflects on mother’s passing after career day at plate | FOX Sports

But my, how she loved her son.

“Every day, I miss her,” Mike said. “It’s weird not being able to pick up the phone and call, hear her voice.

“I always let her know that anytime I did anything good, it was for her. Even if I didn’t do anything good, she was always proud of me. She’d let me know that I was still in the big leagues, to keep having fun going out there. That’s what was awesome about mom. She was always proud of me, no matter what happened.”

Last October, when Connie could not attend postseason games, she kept telling Mike, “I’ll be out there soon. When I can get up and walk around, I’ll be out there.”

She never made it, at least not in person. But on Saturday, when Mike hit a two-run single to tie the score, 4-4, he looked up and pointed to heaven with both arms after reaching second on the throw.

“She’s out there with me every day now,” Mike said. “She held up her end of bargain.”
