Memorabilia from Oswalt’s Career Lost in Tornado

Roy Oswalt’s childhood home in a small Mississippi town was in the direct path of a tornado that swept through the region over the weekend.

Much of the memorabilia the veteran pitcher had saved over the years was lost.

It was a frightening experience for his mom, who heard the storm approaching, then hid in a closet as the wind ripped through the structure.  Oswalt’s father was out of town at the time.

Oswalt had built a new home nearby.  It wasn’t damaged, but most of the jerseys, a major award and other items were still at his parents’ house.

As MLB.com reports, he found some of his rookie jerseys hanging up, but not where you’d expect.
