During his time in Manhattan, he’d grab as many neighborhood kids as possible and gather them on whatever open slab they could find.

Rojas earns 2nd Clemente Award nomination

WASHINGTON -- "It's more important to be a good person than a good player." That is the adage Marlins shortstop Miguel Rojas lives by.
