    WATCH: Yangervis Solarte gets standing ovation before first at-bat since wife's death

    Earlier this month Padres infielder Yangervis Solarte lost his wife Yuliett following her battle with cancer. She was only 31. Solarte understandably left the team for a few days and returned home to his family. While he was gone, teammate Adam Rosales honored Yuliett by performing Solarte's home run celebration after going deep. Over the weekend Solarte returned to the Padres, and on Saturday night, he received his first at-bat since his wife's death. The fans at Petco Park gave him a huge ovation.

    The San Diego Padres And Petco Park Get Smart On Energy

    As a person who wishes to die listening to a cricket commentary of an English test match, the notion of baseball has always been beyond me. The process seems too long-winded and this from a person who loves watching a game of cricket for five days where the ‘result’ could be a draw. In recent years, however, with the boom in statistics across all sports, it has all become to make a bit of sense. Moreover, when I found out that the World Series was originally named after the newspaper that sponsored it and not because of any global sporting arrogance, the game that had my interest now had my attention. This was compounded by a visit to see the San Diego Padres play at the Petco Park stadium during
