ESPN asks, “How big of an impact will George Brett have on the Royals as their new hitting coach?” My answer: Pine tar. George Brett will have the Royals hitters using lots of pine tar.
I’m sorry George Brett. I know your legacy is larger than pine tar. But it’s too tempting to not pass up.
On a side note, this is an ironic image choice on ESPN’s part. Here we have a post about George Brett becoming a hitting coach; and yet, out of all the many photos of George Brett, ESPN chooses to use one where George Brett’s eyes are not on the ball.
