The Athletics' Stephen Piscotty returned from the bereavement list in a special way on Tuesday.
Piscotty patted his heart with his right hand in tribute to Gretchen Piscotty, who died May 6 after battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
Piscotty, whose mother, Gretchen, died May 6 after a almost year-long battle with ALS, held his hand over his heart as he ran down the third-base line and he patted his chest as he crossed the plate and looked upward.
In his first game back, Piscotty promptly launched a towering home run over Boston's Green Monster.
Called up last Friday after two-game stint at Triple-A Nashville, Graveman was solid in a start against the New York Yankees. He's 1-5 with a 7.60 ERA over seven starts with the A's this season.
