Not only is he a hard-nosed solid player, he's old school too. Milton Bradley starts taking off his batting gloves as soon as he hits a HR - not 10 feet from home plate.
LoDuca tells 1st baseman when he got on base - "Does he always take his gloves off when he hits one? Well, tell him he's gonna get plunked one day".
Next time Bradley whiffs, LoDuca yells for him to take off his gloves this time.
Anyway, he tried to advance to 3B on a fly out on Bradley's arm and got nailed. Bradley starts jawing at LoDuca.
Anyway, I just love the kind of stuff LoDuca's made of. I really respect him. He plays sooo hard, gives up his body, and is very old school.
