With athletic family all around, DeShields fits into Indians

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Dad, the elder Delino DeShields, is working less than 100 yards away, behind a fence dividing Cleveland’s training complex from the Cincinnati Reds facility. Sister Diamond DeShields is just a phone call away.

Together, they help Delino DeShields strive to meet his latest challenge: making an impact in his first season with the Indians.

He talks baseball and life with Dad and mental outlook with his sister, a rising WNBA star.

“Baseball is a big part of our lives, so it is something we both bond over,″ DeShields said of his father, a 13-year MLB veteran who is in his second year as the first base coach of the Reds.
