Gold Glove fan should reconsider his sports priorities

The best center fielder in Arlington was sitting in Greene's Hill for Game 1 of the ALDS.

But the kid who caught Kelly Shoppach's third-inning blast doesn't even play baseball. He's a 17-year-old hockey player named Trent Williams.

Williams used to play on the diamond and even caught six previous Major League homers, but "when the Stars won the Stanley Cup here in '99, it kind of got me out of baseball, into hockey."

Dude, you were five years old in 1999 and that throwing arm is totally wasted on ice. Get over Mike Modano and get back on the mound!
