A Virginia Beach man traveled nearly 900 miles to St. Lucie County to meet his long lost father.Rod Hobbs, a father of two, told CBS12 “family is everything,” and for that reason, he spent years searching for his biological father.Hobbs worked closely with private investigators, and found a Port St. Lucie man who goes by “Bobby.”Bobby dated Hobb’s mother while he was training for the U.S. Navy., but lost contact after he was deployed.After 32 years of searching, Hobbs traveled to meet Bobbly, and soon after, two DNA tests confirmed that there is a 99.9 chance that he is his long lost father.Bobby said he never knew about the pregnancy, and offered an emotional apology to his adult son.Hobbs, now 47, said, “it was difficult growing up without a father,” and shared details of his struggle, which included him having to move out and live on his own at the young age fifteen.However, in spite of the hardships he’s faced, Hobbs has found it in his heart to forgive.“It’s the family I wanted my whole life that I didn’t think I would ever have,” he told CBS12.Click here to watch what happened.
PITTSBURGH — Three weeks after he returned to the lineup and nearly three months after he was hit by a pitch, Justin Turner’s left wrist still hurts.He knew it would.“Everyone I’ve talked to who’s done it before said there’s probably going to be a few months of dealing with crap,” Turner said. “Really, it’s been almost three months and yesterday was the first time it’s really flared up.“You can’t be too disappointed about it. There’s going to be good days and bad days until it completely goes away – and when that day is, nobody really has an answer.” Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ “I’m 100 percent satisfied with the quality of my at-bats,” Turner said, pausing. “If I told you I was happy with my results, I’d be lying to you. I don’t think there’s a guy in here right now who’d say they’re happy with their results – except maybe Matt Kemp. (Max) Muncy’s having a good year. But I’m sure he’d rather be hitting .300 with nine homers.“I don’t think anyone’s ever satisfied.

It’s something he can manage.”Turner acknowledged that, saying, “Swinging or taking ground balls, it’s not going to break again. There’s going to be some soreness in there that I’m going to have to deal with.” That also affects his range of motion with his left hand, Turner said.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.
