Potomac Nationals first baseman Brett McMillan sat by himself in a hotel room at the Frederick Comfort Inn and watched Barry Bonds, after breaking Hank Aaron's home run record, raise his arms to the sky in honor of his late father.
The Washington Nationals have promoted their entire starting outfield from low-Class A Hagerstown — including Chris Marrero, last year's first-round draft pick — to high-Class A Potomac in a move that underscores those players' speedy development.
"I didn't have him to turn to when I was struggling on the field," he said. "The field wasn't really an escape for me then from the situation. I felt like there was a weight on my shoulders. But I pushed through that and had some people I could talk to, family and friends. I think once I started talking about him and let people know what I was thinking and heard my own thoughts, I got adjusted to it and was able to deal with it better."
"When Barry did that, I had no idea what he was feeling because he did something no one else had done," Brett said.
