Tim Redding of the Washington Nationals has been through a lot in his baseball career but one thing does not change.  The 29-year-old knows that life isn’t just about baseball.  He said,

I have a wonderful family at home. I have two kids. I get to talk tothem every single night. Granted, my job is to help the team winballgames, but if I do my job well and we play hard and we still comeout on the losing end, I have a life to live for. If I do poorly, Iknow these guys in the clubhouse know I did my best and I know theytried their best.I still get to go home and talk to my family.

Tim and his wife, Jamie, are the parents to children Shea and Brennen.
