O's drop Hidalgo before he even played a game.
Richard Hidalgo's brief career with the Baltimore Orioles ended today before he played a single game for the team.
Hidalgo signed a minor league contract on Feb. 26, reported two days later and spent four days in uniform before leaving the team Saturday to be with his ailing wife. He never returned, and the Orioles released the frustrated outfielder today to allow him to pursue an opportunity in Japan.
Didn't they make a movie about that?
