SAN FRANCISCO — Luckily, there was a doctor sitting in Section 112 on Saturday afternoon, watching his son’s team play a city over from where he raised him. When a woman started choking on a hot dog at the San Francisco Giants’ Oracle Park, it was Willie Ross — father of Joe Ross, pitcher for the Washington Nationals — who rushed to her side and successfully performed the Heimlich maneuver.

Ross, the older one, tries to catch every game that Joe or his other son, Tyson, pitches in the Bay Area. Tyson, now part of the Texas Rangers organization, was even drafted by the Oakland Athletics, the family’s hometown team, and played there for three seasons. But Joe has spent most of his career with the Nationals, just passing through once or twice per season. And that’s what put Willie in the right place at the right time, even though Joe wasn’t on the mound Saturday.
