FILE - In this May 2, 2016 file photo, San Diego Padres' Adam Rosales reacts after striking out in a baseball game against the Colorado Rockies in San Diego. During a winter visit to Hawaii, Rosales met up with a high school baseball player he knew only as "Hawaiian Eli." He doesn't even know the teen's last name and hardly remembers the promising shortstop's high school. Yet Eli Lai, his coach and his father will never forget how the kind-hearted major leaguer helped provide a lift to a young man who desperately needed one this winter. He needed an example of how to work. (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)
