The Katy Times has a recap of a recent visit by Berkman and Pettitte to 2nd Baptist Church in Katy, where Berkman talked about wanting to cry when he got traded to New York, and then had a little story to tell:
“There were two guys who were on me the whole game. They were shaking packages of Twinkies at me. I’m the type of guy who likes to engage the crowd, so I told those guys during a pitching change to throw those things on the field.
“I tore open one of those packages of Twinkies and ate one right there. Those people went absolutely ballistic. They gave me a standing ovation and they loved me the rest of the game.
