It's a sad ending for him. The key moment in the World Series was
settling the team down in the 8th inning after Manny's two errors.
Foulke did it and the rest is history. He was brilliant and I hope he
finds some peace outside of baseball.
I agree, it's sad. I just found out. As he said, he never really liked
baseball, it was just a means to an end, so I hope he find what he does like.
I do think Foulke enjoyed pitching, even if there was a lot about the
sport itself he found boring. I'm sure he's one of those players
who'd never watch baseball as a spectator, but when he was on the
mound, healthy, battling opponents without the blazing fastball a
typical closer has, he may have been pretty happy. He sure looked
that way after Renteria's grounder and Clark's strikeout in 2004! :-)
