The Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers were heading in the direction of the visitor's clubhouse, about to exit the field Monday at Miller Park.
But their escape route was interrupted by a single player from the Atlanta Braves, who bounded from the dugout and formed his own one-man receiving line, shaking each one of the 11 players' hands and giving them a slap on the back.
On page two of the article we get some great insight into who helped Hinske become a great bench player:
"Alex Cora helped me in Boston,'' Hinske said. "He'd done it for a while. He helped me out. Alex is really the one who really told me, 'Hey, you've got to forget about it.'
"If you don't get the job done you're going to have to do it tomorrow. Kind of have a closer's mentality, really. When you pinch-hit, you live and die with one at-bat.''
On the second page of the article he talks about how close he came to signing with the Brewers, and how the Braves beat them out including an option year.
