Dellucci will be missed

David Dellucci was a strong clubhouse presence in his two years with the Texas Rangers and emerged as a player with surprising pop in his bat.

But perhaps his greatest asset was his heart. While most of Major League Baseball dragged its feet when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in August, Dellucci, a Baton Rouge native, sprung into action forming his Catch 22 for Blue Foundation, which assisted with numerous fundraising drives to help Katrina victims.

Around Christmas, Dellucci and his foundation took toys and other goods to children of hurricane evacuees in the Metroplex. He's truly one of the game's good guys and here's hoping his low-key off-the-field personality plays well in his new home of Philadelphia.
