TORONTO -- Freddie Freeman's visit to Toronto for the Braves' series against the Blue Jays was a homecoming of sorts. The 25-year-old first baseman isn't Canadian by birth, but he has a deep family connection to America's neighbor to the north.
"My parents, my grandparents, everybody's from Canada," said Freeman, who himself was born in California. "My dad would come up to Toronto from Windsor [Ontario] on the train to visit my mom. It's cool to be here, in a place where my parents were 40 years ago."
