Reliever Mike Adams, who is from Corpus Christi, got wind that he might be traded to the Texas Rangers on Saturday night. So he wore a Miles Austin jersey to Petco Field for Sunday’s game. Adams, indeed, was traded to the Rangers later Sunday.
Austin can’t wait to meet Adams, who is a Cowboys fan.
“I think it’s awesome,” Austin said of Adams’ wearing Austin’s No. 19 jersey. “I need to get one of his jerseys. I’ve got to find out what number he is when he comes over. I’m definitely going to go to the store and pick one of those up.
“…It’s a great feeling when anyone from any profession, especially baseball, [wears your jersey]. That’s America’s pastime. I used to play baseball, but I ended up not being able to hit the curveball when I hit the eighth grade. So I give all the credit to those guys.”
