Having a catch: Astros, Nats kids crash World Series warmups

WASHINGTON (AP) — After Robinson Chirinos yanked a line drive off the foul pole in left field to give the Houston Astros a 4-1 lead in Game 3 of the World Series against the Washington Nationals, he huddled with his 12-year-old son, David, in the clubhouse.

“I came inside and he was waiting for me, like, ‘Give me a hug, nice job, good swing,’” Chirinos said. “Stuff like that, you can’t put into words. There’s some memories you’re going to remember forever. So I thank God and the Houston organization to allow me to do that.”

All season, Major League Baseball has urged clubs and fans to “Let the Kids Play.” On Friday night, the Nationals and Astros didn’t need the encouragement. There were enough youngsters with gloves during pregame warmups to fill out a Little League infield.

Owen Kendrick, the 10-year-old son of Nationals veteran Howie Kendrick, took grounders alongside the team at second base — one of his dad’s many positions. Owen and his 8-year-old brother Tyson also chased fly balls in the outfield.

I love this. Yeah these are privileged kids who are incredibly lucky but when you are 5, 8, 10, 12 years old dad is just dad and if he’s on the road for 7-8 months at a clip that’s tough.

Drake is now apparently 17 years old, so he's probably too busy applying to home college to be much of a presence.
