Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan traded his baseball bat for a hockey stick and had his “dream come true” Wednesday when he practiced with the San Jose Sharks, his hometown team.
Morgan was born in San Francisco but spent most of his childhood in San Jose, where he played youth hockey and honed his skills to the point where he earned a roster spot for one season as a teenager with the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League.
“To be out there to skate with my childhood team, and just to be out there with the boys, was an unbelievable feeling,” Morgan said.
