There hasn’t been a baseball folk hero in recent years bigger than Sam Fuld became in April. The Legend of Sam Fuld began at Fenway Park when the little known outfielder was a single shy of the cycle and instead legged out a double in the 10th inning against the Red Sox. In the same game he also made a highlight real catch. In subsequent games over the next few weeks there were more absurd defensive plays and offensive heroics. Fans on twitter jumped on the bandwagon and Sam Fuld was a trending topic throughout the country. In the article, Fuld talks about the opportunities that arose from his new found fame, dealing with the letdown as his 15 minutes of fame reach its final moments, and being able to use his fame to help benefit those in need. It’s a really good read.
