Peoria, Ariz. • San Diego Padres pitcher Mat Latos took a little jab at San Francisco, all in the name of charity.
A San Diego-area memorabilia store advertised three baseballs with Latos' signature and the words "I hate SF" below. The balls sold for $1,100, with half going to the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association.
Latos and the Padres were eliminated from playoff contention by the San Francisco Giants on the final day of the season last year. The Giants took the NL West title over San Diego and went on to win the World Series.
