David Newhan, 2006 Topps #74

I just read an article about David Newhan's comeback attempt and I'm not sure that I can add anything to it. I'll just say that I'm stunned to learn that the former Oriole narrowly avoided paralysis and death in a surfing accident 18 months ago. I'm not sure why that wasn't bigger news, but I'm glad that he escaped a more serious injury and that he's made a full recovery. He seems to have the right attitude about life and whatever might become of the final act of his playing career. Seriously, go read the article I linked above. It's remarkable.
