D-Train Derailed: Don’t feel sorry for Dontrelle Willis

And by that spring, at 33 years old, it had sent him to a part of Phoenix called Maryvale, to a last-chance spring training with the Brewers, where his neck hurt and his shoulder ached but another group of young players was finding out what it means to be a Dontrelle friend, a Dontrelle teammate.

“Awesome,” said Will Smith, who turned 14 the summer Willis won the rookie of the year award for the Marlins and now found himself Willis’ locker mate and throwing partner. “If you had to pick one word to describe him, you’d say fun.”

This isn’t a sad story.
