Ex-Cardinals Pitcher Anthony Reyes fighting California wildfire
Former Major League pitcher Anthony Reyes is reportedly on the front lines fighting the California wildfires that have driven more than 110,000 people from their homes, according to Cardinals Magazine. Reyes was a member of the St. Louis Cardinals from 2005 to 2008 and then pitched two seasons for the Cleveland Indians. Reyes is best known for starting and defeating Justin Verlander in Game 1 of the 2006 World Series, which the Cardinals won. Reyes became an L.A. County firefighter earlier this year. His father, Rick, was also a firefighter.
