PHOENIX - Just about every Major League Baseball player has at one time or another stated that no matter how many records he sets the thrill of holding your very own baseball trading card in your hand is unbelievably awesome.
But according to Hercules Confetti with Sporting Chance Magazine Daniel Hudson, who pitches for the Arizona Diamondbacks, does not share that feeling at all.
It seems that the photo of Daniel's baseball card is one that was taken just seconds after he had torn a ligament in his elbow.
Hudson said that seeing the baseball card which shows him grimacing in pain brought back all of the negative feelings he was experiencing at that exact time.
He said that even hearing soap opera organ music makes his mind wander back to that horrible game.
Daniel disclosed that he has told his wife not to ever buy popcorn, Cracker Jacks, or hot dogs.
Hudson confessed to Confetti that when the photo was taken he was also suffering from a horrible stomach ache, athlete's foot, tonsillitis, and on top of all of that he had just bit his tongue shaking off a sign from the catcher.
Dan said that even close relatives, including his maternal grandmother Georgia Lily Beanblossom, 74, made fun of the baseball card at a recent family reunion.
SIDENOTE: The Diamondbacks pitcher told Hercules Confetti that he is thinking about going on the Internet and telling everyone who has that particular baseball trading card that he will buy it from them at the going rate.
