As he walked to the plate for the first time, he heard familiar voices over the Oakland Coliseum’s public address system.

No, it wasn’t Amelia Schimmel who has been the PA voice since last year – it was his kids.

“Now batting, our father, No. 21, Stephen Vogt!” they said over the loudspeaker.

The catcher was clearly surprised when he looked in the stands and received a standing ovation from the Oakland faithful. Vogt spent six seasons with the A’s.
