Summer on the diamond sharpens Greg Olsen's perspective

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen couldn’t hide the disappointment.

“It’s heartbreaking," the three-time Pro Bowl selection said as he recalled the end of his son’s baseball season four days before training camp began last Wednesday. “We made it to the semifinals. Won the area tournament. Won the state. Went to Tennessee and were 3-0 out of the pool. Lost in the semifinals.

“Tough 5½-hour drive home from Tennessee. But the kids were awesome. We had a good time with the families. It was bittersweet to end a couple of months.
