This one's for Willie Terez..a hard working base stealer with the cleats to match..

Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam rolled into Kansas City last night..and as we know, Eddie is a huge sports nut..So big in fact, that every city he plays in he’s got a favorite baseball player.. Monday night at the Sprint Center Pearl Jam performed and Vedder truly showed how much he loves baseball.. Vedder slipped into a  Royals jersey and announced to the crowd: “This isn’t some jersey from Sears. I got this from a legend. No. 6. Willie Wilson. It’s his first Pearl Jam concert tonight.” Then the crowd started chanting “Willie, Willie!” Vedder then went on to dedicate a song to Willie, “Given to Fly,” No word on whether or not Willie cried during the performance..Unfortunately there was no footage of the song..but I’m still looking for it..-TO
