D-backs pitcher Josh Collmenter has found a new career -- personal shopper. Collmenter joined D-backs employees on Tuesday in treating 20 teenagers from Homeward Bound to a shopping spree at Target, helping pick out holiday gifts for family and friends. At one point, he even stepped in and took over as a checkout clerk, scanning and bagging all the items the kids purchased.
"Seeing these kids put others before themselves really embraces the holiday spirit," said Collmenter. "It's a great opportunity for the D-backs to give back, and seeing our employees volunteer and not just take them shopping but get to know each kid on a personal level is truly rewarding."
