1000 Words: Number one fan

Kerry Wood steps off the Wrigley Field pitcher’s mound for the final time after striking out the White Sox’s Dayan Viciedo on three pitches. As he walked toward the dugout to a standing ovation, his son, Justin, ran out to embrace him.

“My favorite memory and probably my best memory of the 14 years was yesterday walking off the field and having Justin run out and meet me,” Wood said on Saturday. “You can’t beat that. I wasn’t expecting it. I knew he might be in the dugout, but I did not expect him to run out and hug me. And he didn’t want to let go. You can’t put anything above that.”
