The article focuses on former baseball pitcher Jeff Reardon who has been caught stealing on various occasions. Reardon, in a note offered an explanation, saying that he flipped on his medications and didn't realize what he was doing. His attorney said Reardon had been on antidepressant medication since the drug-overdose death of his 20-year-old son in February 2004. When the last swing of his career produced a home run at Fenway Park, he sprinted around the bases, head down, and straight into the dugout, ignoring the clamorous huzzahs, refusing again to tip his cap to worshipers. His behavior was born of a long feud with Boston sportswriters.
