Much has been written about the off-field challenges facing Stephen Piscotty and his family. The circumstances surrounding his Mom’s battle with ALS contributed to him becoming an activist in support of other families facing a loved one with the illness.
It also played a part in the destination of his December trade from the St. Louis Cardinals. The 27-year old’s new baseball home, the Oakland A’s, is located close to his family’s Pleasanton, CA base.
Before the A’s spring training contest on Saturday, the outfielder spoke about his baseball transition to a new team and new league. The interview closes with Piscotty’s reminder of how fans can support his ALS charities and his heartfelt thanks is given to those who already have.
