Athletics outfielder Stephen Piscotty hit a home run in the first turn of the mother's funeralThe Atlético outfielder hit a home run on Tuesday against the Red Sox after being out of the team for four days to attend his mother's funeral. It was pure joy. It has been an emotional week, said Piscotty. They have cried me a little, so I did not break anything. I just felt really good knowing that my family was watching and that my mother was watching. The hand on my heart, that's something my mother would do when she could not speak. This was just, I love you and thank you. That's what I did in the box and that's a way of saying it. I will keep that with me.Piscotty's mother, Gretchen, died on May 6 at the age of 55 after fighting against Lou Gehrig's disease. Piscotty was absent from the Cardinals to be with her after she was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in May 2017. She was later transferred to the A's, where she could be closer to her mother's home in Pleasanton, California.
