Cool gesture.

When Derek Holland took the mound in Kansas City for his first start back from a seven-month rehab, he was wearing a pair of cleats he'd customized to honor a young friend, Briggs Berry. Holland honored Briggs, who became good friends with Holland in the ICU at Cook Children's Medical Center, with the cleats and by writing his name on the mound.
