ESPN's Buster Onley did the honors. A characteristic passage:
As McCutchen watched, a boy of about 12 years old launched a throw that soared over the head of the coach, and it was easy to see in the face of the child that in this moment -- making that throw in front of the town's most famous son -- he was deeply upset. The boy ran with his head down to the back of the line, and McCutchen followed.
"Hey, that's OK -- you've got a strong arm," McCutchen said. The boy looked up. "That happened to me in a game," said McCutchen, and he told the story of how he had charged a ball and uncorked a throw so high that it had sailed over everybody. "And I had 40,000 people booing me." Then McCutchen mimicked the crowd's reaction -- "BOOOOOOO" -- and the kids within earshot laughed, including the one who made the throw.
"It's OK," McCutchen said again, and by the end of the morning, he had told the players about botching a fly ball, about overrunning a hit and seemingly every other mistake he has made on a baseball field.
