Steve Lombardozzi Sr. (ex-Twin) is a high school coach and his son (Steve Jr., who the Twins reportedly pursued in a trade in 2011) is helping him. It's nice story about their relationship and the impact a kid can have on other kids.

For more than a month, this has been the scene at Good Counsel's secondary gym. Steve Sr., a former Minnesota Twins infielder, was hired as the Olney, Md. private school's baseball coach in September. And while prospective players train during the winter before tryouts, his son, a Washington Nationals infielder, has been almost like a part-time coach.


"It's a tremendous help when you get a recognizable major leaguer come into the gym and not only, 'My God, he talked to me,' but, 'He said I was doing something right,' athletic director Mark Jankovitz said. "As a teenage kid, that leaves a huge impression."
