McCutchen’s Daughter Gets College Fund, Burnett Gets Jersey Number

According to the Hardball Times and the Post-Gazette, Daniel McCutchen has given new pitcher A.J. Burnett his jersey number, 34, in exchange for something McCutchen won’t be able to use — his daughter’s college fund.

A.J. Burnett has agreed to pay for a college fund for McCutchen’s daughter, who is currently due in May.

This is not exactly big “news” by any means, but I found it nice and interesting that a new player would do such a thing for a younger player, especially when Burnett could have offered a Rolex, a la Jim Thome, or a vacation, a la Jeff Feagles.
