Decorated Soldier Reunited With Family During Rose Parade
PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — A decorated soldier originally from Michigan was reunited with his family Tuesday in a heartwarming moment captured by cameras and witnessed by millions during the 124th Tournament of Roses Parade. Army Sgt. First Class Eric Pazz was riding on the “Canines of Courage” float sponsored by Natural Balance Pet Foods Tuesday when he was reunited with his wife Miriam and four-year-old son, Eric Jr. Both were watching the parade from the grandstands after winning seats. They were under the impression that 32-year-old Pazz, who was deployed, was still in Afghanistan. Video of the parade shows the heartwarming scene as Eric Jr. runs toward his father and the announcer says, “he sees Daddy. he had no idea.” After the reunion, his family joined him on the float for the remainder of the parade.

SAN DIEGO (CBSLA.com/AP) — Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin returned to San Diego’s lineup Tuesday night and said he has spoken with Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke following a scuffle that left the pitcher with a broken left collarbone and Quentin with an eight-game suspension.

Quentin charged Greinke after he was hit by a pitch during a game April 11, leading to a bench-clearing brawl in San Diego.

“First, I thanked (Greinke) for taking time to speak with me,” said Quentin prior to a game against Milwaukee. “We were able to talk and have a good productive conversation. As far as the details of that conversation, that’s personal.”

Greinke had hit Quentin twice over the last few seasons before the pitch that led to the fight. The Dodgers have since had difficulty keeping a pitcher healthy enough to relieve Greinke long-term.

Quentin, who leads the league in being hit by pitches, was batting cleanup against the Brewers. He said he has spent most of his suspension “hitting, throwing and running.” He also said his balky knee has benefited from the rest.
