Todd Helton, when asked if he had ever let a teammate use his glove, as he did for Brad Hawpe on Saturday night when Hawpe made his major-league debut at first base: "Lance Berkman used my (protective) cup in an All-Star Game once, but never my glove."

In this case, Berkman doesn't have as close a personal connection with Helton as does Brad. A player's glove is his lifeblood out on the field.
