Gordon Beckham checked the invitation list for his November wedding to Brittany Fletcher, daughter of Braves coach Scott Fletcher and his wife Angela. Understand, from his days as Rangers owner, George W Bush’s favorite player was Scott Fletcher. The former president’s favorite dog was named Spot Fetcher. Angela was seated at the president’s table at a state dinner.
And, yes, when Beckham checked the invitations, there were Laura and George Bush. Which begs the question: what does a former president give a second baseman for a wedding gift?
Would Air Force One for a honeymoon trip to Jost Van Dyke suffice?
