Joba Chamberlian's father, Harlan, will be travelling from his home in Lincoln, Nebraska to Kansas City this weekend to see his son. According to the New York Post:
Harlan always believed in his son but even he is surprised by Joba's meteoric rise in the Yankee bullpen. "It's more astonishing than anything," he said. "It's beyond my wildest imagination. And as a father, I just want to reach out to my son and touch him.
"I just want to hold him for a few minutes. I'm more anxious to see my son right now than anything else. If he pitches, that's frosting on the cake."
Harlan has lived with polio since he was nine-years old.
