Giants activate Pat Burrell
The now-healthy Pat Burrell was activated from the San Fransisco Giants Disabled List on Wednesday, August 31st. The outfielder was originally placed disabled on the July 15th due to a bone spur in his right foot.
Born in El Dorado, AR, Burrell is the all time homerun champion among players born in Arkansas. Before his injury, the 34-year old was hitting a poor .233 with 7 homeruns and 21 RBIs.
