While Foytack, now 76, said he was never bothered by giving up four homers in a row, he expressed concern for Wright. Foytack, who was nicked in the second-to-last year of his career, said he planned to write a letter to Wright and mail it Monday.
“I kind of feel bad for the kid because he’s young,” Foytack said. “I’m going to tell him that these things happen and that he shouldn’t let it get to him.”
