6/22 A gift for Marlon

Rhiannon Jolliff’s first grade class at Joan Martin Elementary School in Hobart, Ind., sent Marlon Byrd some drawings and get well wishes, including a message from one student that the Cubs outfielder is the “best player in the world.” Byrd, on the disabled list after getting hit in the face with a pitch May 21, was expected to begin a rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Iowa. Saturday marks the five-week mark since he was hit by Boston’s Alfredo Aceves.
