    Evan Gattis of the Atlanta Braves has a pretty wild story. He was a bigtime prospect who was initially derailed by drugs (somewhat) and out of the game for 4 years, working odd jobs. His story:

    He got his first hit (a home run) this week while his parents were being interviewed in the stands.

    When he was playing in Venezuela in the offseason, he received the nickname "El Oso Blanco."

    With the strong superstitions in baseball, I'm sure his parents will be interviewed from now on every time Gattis comes up.
