Moment of Levity: The Big Picture
TUESDAY'S WINNER: MINI-ME
Why are we showing you this relatively standard photo of Reds reliever Daniel Herrerra? Well, for one thing, he earned his first Major League victory on Tuesday night. For another, he's short ... and very short for a professional athlete (not counting jockeys, of course). Herrerra is listed at 5 foot 6, though he may be significantly shorter than that. He also claims to throw five or six different pitches effectively (depending on whom you ask), including a screwball. And yes, he's used a screwball in a game this year. Long story short, he's an incredibly fascinating character, and a pitcher that bears watching, both next time you see the Reds on TV and in the future. (Al Behrman/AP)
