Roy Oswalt Leaves Phillies After Tornadoes Hit Close to Home
Roy Oswalt leaves amidst concerns for his family’s safety
Something wasn’t right with Roy Oswalt last night. That much was certain.
When the Phillies starter spent awhile on the phone in the dugout before the game, there was something amiss. When reporters turned to the locker room after the game and Oswalt wasn’t there(a big baseball no-no in most cases) there was definitely something wrong.
And when the Phillies could not give a time table for his return to the club there were people fearing the worst.
Turns out that Roy Oswalt was worried about a storm that was endangering his family. Ruben Amaro released a statement today that clarified Oswalts disappearance last night.
There has been a tremendous amount of tornado activity near Roy’s home in Mississippi resulting in several tragic deaths and significant devastation to the area. Because of this, Roy is concerned about his family’s well-being. He has chosen to take time to make sure there wasn’t significant damage to his home, but more importantly, to make certain that his wife and children are okay. It is almost a year to the day that his parents’ home was destroyed by a tornado which has heightened his concern about the current situation.We are hopeful that he will rejoin the team for his next start, but will take that day by day.
Oswalt reminds everyone that it’s just a game.
