John Farrell, Mike Aviles’ Daughter, and a Reminder of What’s Important

I started writing this post as a little tribute to former Red Sox player Mike Aviles’ 4-year old daughter, Adriana, who is battling leukemia and threw out the first pitch at Wednesday’s Indians/Yankees game. The video of her first pitch was inspiring and heart-breaking all at once, and it reminded me of all the things I have to be thankful for. Then, as I was finally sitting...

Video: Watch Maiya and Adriana Aviles throw out the first pitch

Mike Aviles twin daughters, Adriana and Maiya, were chosen to throw out the first pitch at yesterday’s Indians-Yankees game. There was quite a bit of action before the pitch, and it was unbearably adorable. There was a meeting of the minds (or head-to-head interaction, depending on your preferred pun) with Terry Francona, some warm-up pitching outside the dugout, tips from (or...

Mikes Aviles’ twin daughters to throw first pitches Thursday

Sometimes first pitches are just first pitches, and sometimes they carry a greater message. Mike Aviles’ twin four-year-old girls, Adriana and Maiya, will throw out the ceremonial first pitches before Thursday night’s game against the New York Yankees. Their pitches will fall in the message-carrying category, and that message is this: F*ck you, cancer. (I’m guessing...

Indians will not trade Mike Aviles while daughter battles leukemia

The Cleveland Indians have received trade inquiries for Mike Aviles leading up to the trade deadline, but the veteran infielder is currently off-limits.

Indians won't trade Aviles due to daughter's leukemia battle

The Cleveland Indians aren’t out of the playoff race quite yet, but there’s one player who definitely isn’t for sale ahead of the Major League Baseball trade deadline. At 45-48, the Indians certainly aren’t a lock for the postseason. However, the club is 4 1/2 games out of an American League wild card spot and could have a fighting chance with a few good moves. But even...
