Pat Neshek, the A’s reliever (and former Oriole minor leaguer) who lost his newborn 23 hours after his birth, will be on Oakland’s playoff roster for the ALDS against Detroit.
Neshek told the San Francisco Chronicle yesterday that the one day he spent with his son, Gehrig John, "was probably the best day I've ever had, the one day. I'd go through it all again for that one day. It was pretty awesome."
Neshek’s wife, Stephanee, had the couple’s first son Tuesday. He was watching the A’s game the next day when his wife called.
