Elaine Sadowski (UPDATE)

Scott Ostler @ SF Chronicle:

Mrs. Sadowski is the mother of Ryan Sadowski, the Giants’ only undefeated starting pitcher. He’s 2-0 since being called up eight days ago, and he goes again Wednesday afternoon against the Marlins. … Sadowski, who is 26, was a nice high school pitcher in the Miami area. He was recruited to Florida, where he got his butt Super Glued to the bench. In two seasons, he pitched a total of 62/3 innings. …

You can guess how much interest he stirred among pro scouts. Sadowski believed he could pitch, but he knew it would be almost impossible to get a sniff. So he asked his mom, a retired elementary school teacher, to phone each of the 30 big-league teams, get the name and phone number of the team’s Miami-area scout, call each team’s scout and say, “I’m Ryan Sadowski’s mother. Please phone my son. He can pitch and he’d like a chance to show you.” …

UPDATE: The 2 teams that scouted him were the Giants and the White Sox.
