You may have heard about former player Ryan Freel’s father, Patrick, who is attempting to put together binders of Freel’s baseball cards for Ryan’s three daughters (ages 9, 11 and 13). Freel committed suicide in 2012.
Patrick, 74, says he’s getting older and he wants to give his son’s children something to remember their father by. So he put out a plea for Ryan’s cards and people are responding in the most touching ways:

Here’s a new card of Ryan Freel that I’ll be mailing out to the Freel family tomorrow. The family is trying to collect binders of cards to give to Ryan’s daughters. More info here: https://t.co/tS2FgJO3XP pic.twitter.com/0xKdr9m7Nr
