Interesting Anecdotal/Narrative Lead

“There is no feeling in baseball quite as helpless as standing on deck when the season ends. Jayson Werth understands that exquisite agony.”

Above in quotes is a lead which falls in the anecdotal/narrative leads category.  The writer is setting up a story about Jayson Werth who was key to the Nationals latest victory.  Although the lead starts off using grim language, it helps to tell the story of a player who has gone through a lot to be victorious.
