CINCINNATI (AP) - Reds pitcher Aaron Harang found a swift way to show his appreciation to the team's clubhouse staff.
Harang bought a souped-up, six-seat golf cart for the attendants who take care of him and the rest of the Reds players. When clubhouse manager Rick Stowe saw the cart sitting outside the clubhouse door on Thursday, he was overwhelmed.
Harang had a nearby auto dealership customize a bright red golf cart, complete with Reds emblems and "CLUBHOUSE STAFF" affixed on the front. He said the cart cost about $6,500 and was his way of saying thanks.
The attendants will use it to ferry equipment and players around the ballpark. Until now, they've had to share smaller golf carts.
