Joey Votto revealed that his brother still holds a grudge from their days playing in the backyard
Votto was asked if he played Wiffle ball as a kid and here's what he had to say:
"My brother's about five years younger than me and when I was about 12 or 13 years old, I bought about 20 or 30 Wiffle balls with my own money," Votto said. "And I had him throw to me. And to this day, he still complains to me because I would hit the ball and it would hit him in the face or in the middle of his body. He thinks I owe him. I bought him a car two years ago and he's still not over the Wiffle ball part of our life."
As everyone knows, no amount of material objects will ever be enough to make up for something that happened as children. No, Votto will simply have to spend the next offseason playing pitcher to his brother until the two are even.
