A little Sunday Ske Love

Hinske keeping postseason magic alive in Atlanta
Connie Hinske, Eric’s mom, said it has been exciting to see him progress from team to team. While he is no longer a day-to-day starter, Hinske is the kind of solid player who is popular among coaches and teammates.

“I think it’s so cool,” she said. “He’s happy being a bench player. And he’s still playing.

“It is way beyond what I had hoped. It was great when he signed with Toronto. It’s nine years later and he’s still finding a niche.”

Hinske embodies Braves' resilient spirit (with video!)
"I don't think it's a coincidence that these last three years he's been on clubs that are World Series-caliber clubs," Braves right-hander Tim Hudson said. "I don't think it's a coincidence that we're here in the playoffs back again with him."
Love Ske! So glad he's part of the team, and we hope he'll be here next year. :)
