In the Comments section of a post earlier today, I brought up Dante Bichette, as a sad reminder of who the Sox spokesmen were before Millar, Damon, Schilling, etc. came to town. I guess he was one of the only players on the Sox in 2000-2001 who was neither boring nor batshit crazy. Anyway, GR and X discussed his "dropping the bat" when he thought he hit a HR, and Andrew mentioned his hatred of the guy (such a hater).
I went searching for photos of Dante (I was looking for this awesome photo in particular), and came across this photo of his son Dante Bichette Jr., the star pitcher and hitter for the Maitland (FL) Little League team. They represented the Southeast in the Little League World Series last year. Setting aside the disturbing father-son resemblance , Dante Sr. is a coach for the team (his coach photo, complete with superwhite teeth, can be found here). What's even cooler is that one of Dante Jr.'s teammates is Tanner Stanley, son of former Boston first baseman Mike Stanley (whom we also mentioned in the same Comments section). He's also a coach for Maitland (his photo is here). Pretty cool.
I don't recall this getting any attention in the Boston papers. Maybe that's because I don't read the Boston papers. But I do read the blogs of people who read the Boston papers. So that, you know, is sort of the same thing.
