World Series hero Gary Sheffield, center, is greeted by family and friends, who staged a surprise block party Saturday night near Sheffield's home in south St. Petersburg. The Florida Marlins outfielder made his way through a crowd of about 400, shaking hands and signing autographs. "You and mama are full of surprises," Sheffield told his parents. Neighbor Harold Jones said the party was a "spur-of-the-moment thing. Everyone pitched in, we just called our friends."
