ATLANTA -- World Series champion Josh Reddck of the Houston Astros logged a hit and a steal in Atlanta on Monday. Ironically, neither achievement occurred at SunTrust Park, the city's professional baseball stadium.

After being recognized in the Georgia House of Representatives for his philanthropic work in Effingham County and Houston, Reddick took a step or two to leave the podium, then grabbed Speaker David Ralston's gavel and pounded it into the sound block.

Reddick, honored with House Resolution 909, offered a mishievous smile before taking his swing with the tool of government power, prompting a laugh from the legislators and those in the gallery during Effingham Day.
