Jason Wood is going to Disney World

No joke.

Jason Wood, you just won a game for the Marlins with your first pinch home run in the major leagues.

What are you going to do now?

Get up early this morning and drive to Disney World, believe it or not.

"My wife and I have been before, but our three girls never have," Wood said Wednesday afternoon after his three-run homer propelled the Marlins to a 5-4 win over the White Sox. "Pretty good timing, huh?"

The combination of a Marlins off day and Daniela Wood's fourth birthday on Father's Day sparked the idea. Her father's unlikely heroics should make everything from the drive to the lines seem shorter.

I didn't know that he made enough money to take a family of five to Disney World.  I guess his wife holds down a couple of jobs.

Hope they have fun.
