Dodgers lefty Rich Hill is Tony Conigliaro Award winner

BOSTON (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill has won the Tony Conigliaro Award.

The honor goes to a major leaguer “who has overcome adversity through the attributes of spirit, determination and courage that were the trademarks of Tony C.”

“I’m really humbled and honored by this award and honestly a little thrown by it,” Hill said. “Having grown up here, I am very familiar with Tony C.’s story, so this means a lot to me and my family.”

Less positive Rich Hill news: he was arrested outside the Patriots game on Saturday.

"[Hill] and his wife were arrested outside Gillette Stadium Saturday after Caitlin A. Hill repeatedly tried to enter the stadium with an oversized bag and then refused to leave the grounds when ordered to do so by Foxboro police."

That’s a weird article. The Glove doesn’t normally refer to people so formally “Richard A. Hill” does it? Even later in the piece they refer to him as Richard Hill.

as the wife was hauled in, the crowd was chanting "A. HILL! A. HILL!"

at least, I think that's what they were chanting.

so, keeping score, Hill was "humbled" but - his wife, she lacking on the humble.

Hill should have his wife AND his Tony Conigliaro Award taken away.

That was just a brave act of civil disobedience. Tony C would be proud!

Hill was dragged away, screaming "Say goodbye to your job! Do you KNOW who I am? I'm the winner of the 2019 Tony Conigliaro Award!"

“She was trying to enter the stadium with an oversized bag and she had been told several times, ‘no,’” said Robert Bolger, chief administrator for Foxborough police. “She tried several times to go to a different gate."

I am picturing a fake moustache and glasses, and pretending not to "hablo Ingles" - and no one can talk me out of it.

also, I say this cop's nickname is "Whitey"

Trying to separate a woman from her purse is a fool’s errand.

especially a Big Ass Purse

I want it to be full of some strange contraband, legal but unavailable in the stadium. "Get away from my krumkake! You monsters will break them."
