Others strap their personal trainers up in catching gear and have them on the receiving end of a few dozen fastballs. Gio Gonzalez has recruited someone with slightly better credentials to catch his offseason bullpen...

On this day in history | 2001

Jorge Posada came up to the plate in the top of the fifth inning, and sent a 1-0 pitch to left-field for a solo home run – giving...
