So it's it's an honor ad, a hale. Her thanks for having me guys lookingforward to this this, this peakout I got coming well, I don't know if it's abeat tdown we Marnie- and I interviewed Tom Arnold yesterday. So so you got a lot o a lot of work to do. We asked about three questions. Yeah. He just talked old time. It wasgreat, but the problem with Tom's was it didn't record, so we get to do itall over again. Yours is recording, I made sure so Brett, where we always go where Lwestart with this. Is that moment that time and I'd love tohear this from Yuses of when you fell in love with sports, it had to be veryearly for you. What's that first memory, for you, a fun love of Sports, why? I think you know from an earlyearly standpoot? My story is kind of well known as faras in the baseball world T, butit'my, earliest infuence and ho I spend mostof my time, with wit, my GRANDFA and at early early age. You know from the timeof you know one before I was with grafts a lot, and you know Ijust remember, and and you know how, when you're, that young hey youremember when you were one, you know not too many of us remember when wewere one right, but I do have blash backs a and e backyard with GrandfanHittin withfooballs, and he used to tell me I'd wake him up at five in themorning Pul. You know in full catchers gear and they gra es, go with lay ball.Let's play ball, and that's that's really. You know theearliest memories I have, but he was big influence on my life going forward,starting at a young Young AG. Was it always baseball or did you play othersports when you were young yea? You know what I dabbled I play yeah I was N. I when I was Tan eleven twelve didin high school. I played basketball football and I got to high school and I was I wasreally small when I got to high school tpresson and it kind of dropped me outof football, I kept playing basketball, get playing basketball, but even then by my junor year I justdropped out of that. Just played baseball full time, and that and youknow that was a time and when offseason we were starting to get intothose. Not necessarily travel ball like...

...it is now, but but you could you couldkind of play your sport year rount. So in the winter I had a league that I wasin and you know in the summer w Ich what school is over. We had a league Iwas in here in southern California, so I just started concentrating a hundredpercent baseball but yeah as a kid. I did it all. So letme ask you question like when I would go and coach my sons, an youth football.I think that people always felt like they should be doing more or better than they were, and I'malways like, no they're, just a kid growing up did you feel like when youwere playing like little league and things like that thatthe kids maybe thought you should be more than then. You know what I meanbecause your dad was there, your GRANDPA was there. They were MajorLeague baseball players. Did you feel ne O that Ooi? I really didn't pay attention tothat now now, looking back onit, it was more of. I think I found more of the other kids.Oh yeah, he thinks he's Thiso Oto. You know it's kind of the more negativeofpri. I really could care less. So it was about especially on the baseball field islike. I went out there and I'm Goingto Kake you but nome better than you, andI don't. Let's talk about my dad later. That was a a really big feel. I meanright and my real friends, my buddies, you know made it til. It wasn't a bigdeal because growing up in Philly and- and you know growing up in that lifestuffme and my buddies- we ere no different. I didn't think it was any big deal thatmy dad was. You know I went to the ball part with my dad every day and hung outwith Mike cmitt and peet rose, and that was just a normal day for me and w atthe cool part was, is if my buddies surround me. Oh they kept me real,humble about that, because they, let me know extra special, that we don't care.What your dad does s that that was very cool for me, but I think when I wentout- and I was competing as a little kid yeah- that that's Tig Mi was there,but it didn't bother me one best. That's awesome! So when did you meet?Did you ever meet when you were in Philly? You may have, and you don'tremember, Marny's grandfather with the eagles. No, we've discussed it quite a bit and-and I don't think we ever- we ever crossed bask, but I definitely know noof and but we were actually at the worldseries at the same time, because the wele played at the the vet. So Brettwas there and I was there, so we had very were the same age. We had verysimilar experiences, and- and so you having your friends, keeping you humbleand that's what good friends do is theyre like they put the joke chain onhere and they're like no you're, not going to with that, and it's great youhave a great legacy with your grandfather, and so do I and now howabout your kids? How about Your Dad and your children? What's the legacy, therelationship that they have with your dad? You know I always they have a goodrelationship with my dad. You know they have a good relationship. withtheirgrab, actually we're getting up tomorrow morning at four o'clock: YorGoin, the Fishit graps allver, these a soxiety charter, O boat and we're Goinago out fishing with all the boys and they have a good relationship. ButI do you know I have fifteen year old twins and I have a twenty year. Oneyear old. That's that's a you know, he's going into a senior year incollege and I've got a daughter, that's out of the house, but I alwaysencourage him. You know I was just the other day he came over and you knowsometimes yeah graps ask the same questions over and over and as kidswere like Ou Grapbu come on, but but I always encourage them to Hay. You knowcherish these times, because th t they're not there forever, and I hadsuch a good relationship with my grandfather, but I remember those dayswhere he, you know he's going to tell me that Ted William Story for the TenthTime- and I was like graps uncle on the dead lave story, but once hi gone oncehe's gone and and I move out moved through life and people askd me aboutmy childhood, an my grandfaand. What was it like and it's like wow? Thosestories were really cool that I took...

...for granted at the time were reallycool and something it's a part of. My life now that I can share with with mykids and one day Migrantkid, so I always encourage that. The kids heytake advantage of Grafba. Everybody doesn't get to have a grappe with coolstories. Ote, a big portion of of their live so take advantageof yea. No, I think I think, that'swonderful, because when my kids were little they actuallyvideotape my wife's grandparents and you know he was in Pearl Harbor, and somy daughter asked him a ton of questions about Pearl Harbor. He nevertalked about it and that's the only tape we have of him ever talking aboutbeing in Pearl Harbor, and so you know those like you said I mean how muchwould you give right now to hear that Ted, William Story again yeah exactlyexactly a D, and I think it's just like anything else.You know you think you take things for granted in life and as you get older and as if you start toexperience more thing, you realize. Well, I better, maybe I'm Gon to maybeI'm going to appreciate this a little more right now, but I think that's partof growing up, that's part of mature and that's part of navigating throughbike. You know you tend to gain a littlerespect for your elders. You know, as you get older, you realize how muchmore they know they you and how much Moredo yeah. So what's what's the one piece of Vice Lie:WEAPONS TODAY RIGHT! No, what's the one piece of advice that you remember yourGrandpa, giving you that still sticks with you Waiti, like always tell me, im, becareful hem women, er Li women. I said Lograt she' been married for like ahundred years. He said yeah she's, different different generation. Always just O. Tell me that growing up, you know. What's funny when weinterviewed Tom Marnold yesterday we said what what advice would you go backand give your young tarm Arnold and he said I would date more, never getmarried because he's been this he's on his fourth divorce and and he's like. Iwould just tell myself taking to take your time. Go on ten dates, don't getso sucked tat. So it's pretty funny that two days in a row we get thatadvice yeaknow. Maybe it's ECAUSE, there's a woman on on with you guysthat you know that's what it is, but definitely that was probably very goodadvice from your grandfather and what about his legacy? I mean how do Youusustain his legacy Brett. I know the book is really dedicated to yourgrandfather. But how do you sustain your family ligacy? Well, I mean don't know w what what do you actuallymean by that? Well, I you know your dad had your grandfather had, you know, hadhe was kind of a pioneer in many ways in baseball and then created a son wholoved the sport and then has a grandson, and so how does like? How does thattranslate down the family line? Okay, no! That's that makes I a little easierfor I weyou know graps is is and as my dad's getting older now you know I seea lot of Grandpi is dad. I mean he was here yesterday and you know I know he's making somecomment on something and my mom's, you know they're giving me the look like.Oh, oh, your father and I'm going it's just like GRANDPA, that's GRANDPA rightthere reincardinated, but I'll tell you. Gramh was the wasyou know the the Pioeer dad takes over as much as my dad and myself or oil andwaterwe're completely different? We come from a different Clok, but but you know being assuned and I just knowmy upbringing out ow. There was absolutely vero pressure on me toachieve anything. It was. You know he was a tough dat, but but he didn't make it like baseball. wasthat big of Te deal? It's like here's baseball? Hopefully you enjoy it, youknow, and but there was never a pressure on me there's. Never, Oh, youneed to achieve achieve cheeters just...

...kind of here. Here's th here's the gameand I hope you enjoy it and kind of go on with the family letacy. I try to do that with my Ston. I've gota junior in college, he's a baseball player and I try to have that samething. It's you know and he's starting to get it now to is,though, for generation you know, that's never happened, OCO and for me growing up, it's like I sawthathe like the game I saw he was. He had a NACK for this game and Iencouraged him to to play it. Do it right, but I never you know if Yeu would have come to meone day I said Dad. You know I just don't want to be a vitl where I want tobe an engineer. I support him in doing that. So that's the way I just I justtry to try to be. I've got fifteen year oldboys that are that are playing baseball right now I don't go to the game. If Igo to their game, you wouldn't even know I s there and it doesn't matterwhat happens. I doesn't matter the greatest game of all time or the worstyou'll barely know on there, because I'm not really going to react. If mykids have something to talk to me aboutathletically, what I'm trying to say is: I'm not thatparent that goes home. I critique yea. What about that? Third Obed, you knowwhat about Thefifteng with E runninaround? Second, that's not me!It's! I watch the game. You know I watch thegame, so you know, I know everything that happened if you'd like to discusssomething your dads here, if not I'm Gong Na, let you be a kid. You know.That's that's! The most important thing is: is that let these big kids be kids?It doesn't you don't have your childhood foreverand especially nowadays, with with thepressure these kids have on them, with the sports and and the offseasontraining, and all this and all the parents know that they're their kidsthe next this and that they're really not the next this and that so I missed those times of growing upwhere you play a little league game where you play popmor football game andwhen the game's over when loseer draw you go, have a press ont to slushyo.With your friends I mean that's what it's all about, and I've tried toinstill that in my kids that it gets serious soon enough if you're goodenough- and you continue to go up the ladder. This gets serious soon enoughso enjoy enjoy your enjoy your youth as much as you can, because then you gotto work for a lip right. So when you create advice, that's great guidanceHor. It is who want who really feel so passionate about getting their kid toplay sports. But it's really about you know having fun while they're doing it,and then it will happen or not. It's okay and I see a lot of these kidstoday and it's like. Why is this pressure being put on you?You know and not to be rude or to be too harsh,but you know I see these kids come in and off out all the time and I can lookto get the kids get no chance on planet earth is being a professional majorleague, baseball Buk, no chance. So why are we asking like? He has a chance?Why can't we let him enjoy it? Let him enjoy this he's going to resent you apparenting that way. One day an I look back Ho go. You know I wish I you WuldT. let me just enjoy my little tea enjoy my high school varcity tol,whatever it may be it, and to put these pressures at these expectations thatyou're going to be a professional is lucicrous because th t e, thepercentages are so low. Yes, somebody's got to make it and I never discouragekids. You know chase your dreams without a doubt, but but be a littlebit realistic. Well, I think you hit the nail in the head, though it's a lotto do with parents and not the kids. When I was going to my sons usefootball games and he was, I think they were eight yearsold and the dad came up to me and said: HeyHive, you met Andrew and I said Yeah, I'm at Andrew what a Nice kidte came upand he said: Hey how you doing it's nice to meet you, Mr Friz, it's nice tomeet you Andrew, and he said Yeah Yea.

He told you that he's a nice kid hesaid, do you think he's got a chance and I said a chance ot what he said achance to playing the NFL, and I said I said you want to be kidding. They saidthe kids eight years old. He could never grow another inch. She could playbaseball. I don't know what he's Goin no do like. How could you even ask methat? But it goes back to your point that some of the parents are really kind of that push their kids a the havethat thought of their kids going to be a professional or major league, andthey have to puth them to get there, which I don't think it's true. Justlike you dread. I think your Cama reversed on you. There you go e, so you said you grew up in Philly.Did you go to high school in Philly? Were you out in California? When youwent to high school, I started in Philly as a freshman an then my dad got traded to the Californiaangels and they kind of picked this up and we moved. You know when I was. Iwas a back east kid and has you know when you're when you grew upin Jersey, California, aint cool righ? It's like we're O we're moving and I'mgoing. You know, I'm kicking its Creavi. I Hate California Serf Sup and in aboutfour or five months- and I said wow this California stuffs pretty cool well, O Kende up Bein the best Mofmeno putme,a climate where, from an athletic tamp hat, I could play year around goodweather, better competition. You know I ended up going to USC and going there for threeyears enjoyed my time. The Aran you know, then my pro career started.So yes, sometimes the moves in like it. Once again, it's goes back to we don'tknow too much. Our elders usually now better, and I remember my dad tellingme hey we're going to move to Californ. Well Dad. How could you possibly dothat to me? I'm Foreseeng. I know everything in t a world. You can't dothat. Well, he's Playirg for the California. I kind of makes sense thatyour family goes with you out there a and you know for bread at fourteencould have to leave a few friends. But but you know those are the thingswe go through and you know ind end up being pretty pretty awesome for me andyou know, and my brother Yeah, you know wit, so he got those same southern cow athletic advantages we have. You knowit seems like southern cal and Texas and swhere Wereyou can play year roundit that that's the place to be especially from a baseball start.

Well, Igrew up in Pittsburgh and I know all about cold weather and Spring Baseballand being in the gym til. You could go outside and and there's nothing worsethan hitting a ball, and when it's you know twenty five degrees out and tryingyou know you just can't do it. I couldn't. I was always jealous of theguys who played in Florida. You know because I was a we played baseball. Iplayed baseball my whole life and one stay championships, inh baseball t'sthat I thought I was going to do and end up being football. So you neverknow what's going to happen, but I couldn't imagine playing year round inNice weather I mean just just thinking about my dad worked in PPG, which was aPittsburgh play, glasses, a mill factory, and he used to bring homethese cotton gloves to put undrneath heir baseball gloves, because you know,if you're catching a ball on a cold, it does not feel good. It's justjustsomething about it. You got to catch it right, yeah, you gotta, know OFAN! Letit hit here. Oh yeahyou. Learn that...

...really quick. You learned that reallyquick for the Tim Wall that H, Betterin Stadium, is where you learned it right,yeah, so aanytime, it's cold. You learn how to do things a little bitdifferently, so you go to USC. What was that experience like for you? You know I was never I'm asked about it allte time nowbecause of my son is playing times and hey bret. You knowpeople bring Yiu back, is you know, he's a Principan and that was a USC wasfom pet repitible school. But you know what about your college days when Ilaugt Ecaus is my son and my boys. Now you know they're student athletes andtheir student athletes, and I was definitely at use to play baseball andfrom the day one woth, my counser. What do I need? You need to two point out isDal. As born, I got a two point out. You know and it's so much differentwatching my son, his tape like because it's like these guys are real studentslike realaand, then athletes, you know and at those Ivy Leagues. What I foundit's pretty interesting because most top athletes and division won schoolsthey're there to play they're there to to you know as kind of a stepping stoneof the next pit apter their life, you go to thodiety league school and it'syou'll see some true student athletes, where these are definitely guys thatare students first and Yeah Baseball, they're, pretty good at baseball, andthey just happen to do it as the Hobsi there's a few guys on the team that areserious and are going to sign professionally. There was one guy. Nobody got drafted this year because ofthe funking five five Broun draft from from the Ivy Leagu, but we had a couplekids from fro Princan side. So there is, they take a series a little bit a few of the guys, but for the mostpart, rthey're student athletes, so short story that I just made long. Ienjoyed my time af USC, but it was definitely there to play baseball, notmuch else yeah. No, I hear you so you get drafted after your third year andyou weren't. Looking back at that point, you weren't saying man. I got to goback and finish my degree. Oh no now I was always in track mind an raft. I got the opportunity to go toSeattle and you know I I raced. I E minor lage,pretty quick. I got there I about in a couple years, and I thought you know this is going tobe easy. For me, big leags is temple and there were some humble piewait forme and I got through the Mire League really fast and I seceded every levelreally quick and I got to the big lation and the next thing. I know I'mit's two months into my season and I'm hitting one ninety eight o having abeer with a friend after the game and I'm looking at him. I look up at himand I sa Wow bigly tough and he looked at me and he said no shit. I don't knowif we can say that here, Noh yeah definitely say whatever you want. It was just a different level that I'dnever experese. You know the minor leagues is one thing and it definitelyprepares. You fo the big Ling, but the big lad is definitely something else,and it's something that a major adjustment at and you know I found myway. It was just one of those things where you get you get knocked on yourass. You Get up it and, and you make an adjustment N, you find a way to make itwork. So I went through that Ta Bringer in those those tough times. I gotknocked down a lot, but you just keep going moving on making adjustments andit works out for I the Lon run. Did you did you have a mentor besides yourfather or grandfather that used you could call or rely on. I did not you know. Grahms was was he's the guy that was going to be hardon me. He was going to be you know I every time we come to San Diego asinteresting, because we plat five draces. I've got a lot of family in southernCalifornia all born and raised here. So...

...all DADS sisters and brothers and momsmom's got five sisters and a brother and their family, so Sandiego Wis, anightmare H, know what I'm talking about. I knowwhat you're talking about an I need to leave forty a night. The grass wouldalways show up and afterwards when we come out, greet the families getting onthe plus to go back for this tothe hotel. So I try, you know: I'd haveforty family members out there and grandpad always hit the back, got towait like he was. We have the oneoff one. You know the cousins, an the ants.They were Nihe ewere important, the one on one com. So I you know I bake my waythrough it. I go gratually think you know I could have been three for fourhomewerd Doubl, three rbis great game. We win and he'd Looke at me and go hey what happened that forth o fat we talking about. I said what about theother three, because I'm not talking about the other three. We know whathappened the other thig, what happened on that FOOTEBAC? So that was graps forme dad a little different, especially professionally. We had a very good working relationship.We were able to take the father, son caps off and really be like. You said,I think, that's a good word for how I how I compartmentalize my relationship withmy dad during my career. It was a mentor in some capacity. I could callhim. We do the the father's son thing thin. You know how's mom doing to thisAga. Okay, here's! What's going on! Here's like you know back then I saidyou got ta Pus fotation watch the last. You know this this and this and he sayokay andhe watching sometimes he I'd say you got in time. WBECAUSE that'sbeen working in and out of the game for a long time right. He maned a few years. You know for the last twelve years he'sbeen with the Washington nationalhe's a BP, so he's always been and out of thegame, but but if we could work it out a say like dad what you got the next twodays, all right, I'm open, and I you know all right- I'd- send him a planeticket. He fly out, we get to the wallpart early. You know when nobodywas there and secretly work on my sway. So we had that relationship. That'sobviousy develop the year as a kid. I didn't have that relationship with him.You know through high school, but once once O my professional hit, we had areal nack to be able to go, take off the bother son, the family thing andjust go mentor, Player or player instructors, and it was really cool.Did he ever give you an advice on how to deal with your GRANDPA? No? No, but but I could give him someadvice now, Ow to not act completely like Granhe's getting funny. Owt bcausehe's the pit point where he really doesn't. You know give a rip aboutanything and say Yeah. You know in certain places you can't you can't saythat or this or that I don't really care how about that. I'm seventy twoyears old and I'll do whatever I want, I'm beyond carriers, you know, so Ihave those tolk with them. So it's IT'S ENTERTAINING SAY TELEAF! That's!That generation, though my dad was the same way. I'm like Dad. You can't eatthat you just had a hart transplant. You can't eat that nobody's going totell me what I can acan Ian. I could do anything. I want right right. Mygrandfather had open heart surgery and he was drinking and smoking a cigaretteon the Gorney, as they were reeling him into the operating room. He did youknow and he's like well. This is what it's Bor, so it's interesting workbecome I mean, will we become like that bet? Do you feel like that's likeyou're heading in that direction of being like I'm just going to not youknow, whatever I say is ogain. I don't think so. I like, I said Ithink, Dadd and me Ar oil and water we're different. I'm not really like mydad and I'm not really like my grandmother Aaron. My brother has alittle bit more. He has more of their...

...haracteristics, so as life goes on, itwouldn't surprise me if Aaron had a more sens to my deat, but but we'rejust completely different personalities. So so I don't seeMyselty I'll, never say never. Believe me. Life keeps hit me with Ti ithougty and I go away. Am Mi back you're backwell, Ey, you cal! Imagine that was dad callinget! No, you know hat. I go I'm goingthrough life and it keeps hitting you with things that it it's so funny toTinke, because we always get to certain certain levels in our lives. Would okaynow I've accompliished this, so I really know what I'm talking about andthen life issue with another thing like wow. I didn't know that all right. Ilearned that now now you go here here, so you never so I'll, never say never,but I don't see myself being tator grip. Well, it's funny. You say that becausewhen my kids get mad at me, whether we're golfing or doing something, Iknow they're tired of me when they call me coach, because I'm coaching them orI'm saying too much to them so like we were Gofon the other t in a sarcasticway. I love the. I love it yeah Y, Ah Kno, because I've coached them whenthey were little and I've coached them through all their sports and been there,and I had to learn real early, how to not be like my father, because myfather was pretty tough on me. You know I was ust just like what yourgrandfather would do to you wo L. I would throw four touchdowns but Misstoand my dad be like what happened on those well, the Guy Blindside me. Well,you got to get away from that. You know and knowthat's how he was and then Icauht myself, my son got really angry with me one game and I said I had adeep talk with my wife and she said you know you just like your dad and I'mlike. Oh Shit. You know I didn't want to be like that. You know because mydad was tougfi. He was a mill guy, like you didn't screw round with him, and soit's funny that you say all those things and so then it makes me think.Did you have a kind of a better relationship with your brother? Becauseof that? Or did you guys? How did you guys get alone because it's prettyextradinary that Youre both are playing in the league yeah and looking back at the time? Youknow we didn't think was I I guess play with Aron for a year. You know at thehighest level and in one thousand nine hundred and ninety eight, and I can only speak for myself, but Ireally kind of took a grat. I didn't look it okay, Aron's planing, thirty. That wasmy third Baseon, that Wasnan Earan. I don't care. If he's my brother, it's mythird basemen. I got to work with that's whow I turn double plays withand it really didn't the brother thing. You know Aaron andmyself, like I said, Aarons more, like my dad they're kind of f the same Qlat we're completely different people werecompletely different personilies we get along great and we've always gottenalong great but just different Aaron. You know I speakabout the relationship I have with my father how we had a really goodprofessional working relationship when it came to to the game and my swing. Wewere great together, Aaron and my dad completely butted heads, and I alwaystell you, know: that' SORCASTHOIC coachline,that's kind of how we aron as with Thato. You know, if you couldn't, theycouldn't get past the father's Stut. It was Iwas like shut up Dat. You knowyeah where's mine, all right, dad. Let's work on this because you know myswing as good as anybody. Let's work on this professionally, like I'm speakingto another adult not like, I was Peakig wit and Earon, and my dad somehow I sawthat dynamic from afar. They just really couldn't get past thatfather's son. It always turned into the well Daddy, always di Itat. Once youshut up on you Gan now, and they can never get past that IAMIC. Iluckily found it the point in my life,...

...where I can get past that, and itreally was beneficial for me. It helped me profressionl yeah. No, I see thatwith my sons as well gave. My younger he's always asked me questions aboutgolf and how's. My swing. Look. What can I do to get better and gunners justlike leave me loandown and watch videos and figure it out, like don't don'tyeah. He calls me His crypt tonight when we play because he's alwaysworried, I'm going to say something to him right and ther'se, certain that'shis personality and he'll. It doesn't have to be dad that works with you know.I have a son that comes to me, definitely for advice and definitelyfor the mental side of the game, but thephysical side of his swing me and him don't really Mech and that's not aslight on dad or sone. It's just certain people in life. You workwithout certain things and if he has a question about the game like Bret orRegt, dad what do you think about that? Second Enbat, you know I had am set upfor this and this I love talking about that stuff and h me and him can talkabout that for hours, but when it comes to the physicality of its swing, it's tough for me to you know. I knowexactly what's to tell them, but from here to hear it we're on of thedifferent wave lex es Hon nihts he'll go to his grandfather for that which isperfect for me yeah, which is good regt. You know I's a boys in the family andyou do have a daughter, so ca, courage, your daughter to I mean what do youthink the advantages of having all this like baseball and sports in her life?How was that benefited her because I believe, like sports, of the universallanguage, so I'm sure that, with your daughter, she's definitely been thebeneficiary of all this. You know sports talk, so what did you get? Whatkind of Yeah N in Savannah? She was great. I mean she grew uparound this game and listening to me and listen to you kno. She lovesspending time with her Uncle Aran. She loves when, when she's in New York,she's going to go to ancle Arin has first of all she likes to Goig, O theYagke game and be cool. Andyou know selet's, be honest, what's mostimportant, but now getting past that she's Ju'st been around the game. Erwhole life yeah. She went to you at you. She was two and Tha aphlete herselfShe'as a volleyball player. She went to USC, she got it. Sheshe got her degreein four years in business. She went in she's in the sports worldshe's in that I can't exactly describe what she does, but she's in that teckihandling social media accounts for athletes and and companies thataffiliate themselves with sports, so she's always been in it she's, just a real smart she's, a real,sharp girl- and she really knows- and I don't know if she just because she'sbeen around the game, her whole life and because she's been around hermyself and her uncle and her GRANDPA. She just kind of has a I'm evenimpressed, sometimes and she'll explain thanks tiving tecas. You know that Datcome on. This is my life and it's pretty cool to hear from her, but alsoshe's had that being the only girl she's had thatPrincess Roll Ing. She gets to play too, and you know I see it when she goes toGramy's house and E ohwe're going to get facials in testages Shei'll. Tellyou what she knows, how to work: TFE, Princess Routgo, grandpas and then she'll sneak by hermoms then come by my house, maybe for dinner. She gets it all. Com shesheknows how to get it all covered, but hot that work. Now how to her brotherstreat her because I know like my boys- are pretty tough on their sister themy oldest son. You know they kind ofhave a an adult relationship where they'rekind of cordial with each other, the the fifteen year olds it's just kind of whatever...

...they don't really play each other anyattentiov. Oh Man, it's funny because now, like Al, my kids have been dating they're all been single, a d nowthey're kind of dating and they just they just rag on each other and Rtheirboyfriends are girlfriends and we had them all on the phone the other day.Just like this saying, okay, what are you guys doing why you have to pick oneach other? So bad, all the time just lay off, let the other one be happy andthen they just well. She started it and because I was dating this girl and sheused to say all this and it's pretty funny, but they're all supercompetitive and just like you, my daughter's, been around sports foreverand I think the drive the thing that they've she seen because, oh my boysplay football. It's been in my family, it's just a competitiveness and they'reso competitive and everything we do playin board games at home, whatever itis, and it's just that drive that they get from being competitive. And that'swhat sports gives you a lot of times? I don't know if I've seen that, no without a doubt not a doubt, so youget to see atle you're in the minors. How many years were you in the minors? I was there. You know Riad it about twoyears about two years, so your first Major League at Bat who was the pitcheryou had O face Arthur Roth and it was my first minor leget bat andit was my first big Lig at back, really wit his you know at the time I didn't.I didn't make much of it, but look at that is very, I think, I'm in very rareair for players that can say their first minor Ligat back is against thesame guy. They basial pers Abat the big yeah, very jus, just weird tiger. Whatwas Arthur known for what was his pitch like you had to study all that, so itwas what re you time. You know this is Ne Thousand Ninehundred and ninety. Now he was just and I faced them. He pitsdfor the Orioles he's in the Oriel. It was Abal, I think it was Frederickson and which was in the Carolinal League and Arthur was known as back. Then youknow, as time goes on it's two thousand and twenty now you know it seems likethe guys are, throwing a little bit harder, they're, getting bigger andmore physical because of the training and the technology we have in ourfingertip ses in but back, then it was pretty rare to see a ready, Randy Josa.I left you that trew really hard. You know s a lot of hard e rities, but thelefies were kind of known. You know to be cunny Shummers or saw toss andlessis they like to call. So it was rare to see if a guy fired from theleft side and Arthur had there rhemitation and I remember pulling upto the the stadium an you know my first game in the minor leagues. They said:Oh Kidy, you picked a rough one to have your date Yieu on. What's the big dealis who arthe roads is pitching? You know he's no more prospect fo for theoriels and you throw. Ninety eight is that I said you left your Rightin. She leftys AIS, no problem, an e leftthe. You know the left yea. I always you alwayshave that advantaged little bit of the right itter it's coming. You can seethe Pish com on the other shode, so I was got to relieve that I wasn't goingto fish based on a nasty writing with E, with a great Breaka Ball. For My dad,you had a left, youlease ey. I knew I had a chance to not embarrass myself soright, yeah good. I Hadi think I at a double off the left e all Li firs, badin myran leg, hey set up the middle first about a my big lake. My biglydebut tell Stang same res and then played with Arthur for three years inSeattle he was a setup guy for the mariner, so Wunt fullster good morning. Well, okay, did you everhave game day jitters, a good question. You know I ha. Let's say I think that's a goodcall. They are that's exactly what they are: The jitters ther theirebutterflies in their stomach. If you want to call it that and I'll tell you,they never went away from, and it was...

...always only on certain games. I get thespring training after a long winter that first Ed bat an spring traning howit doesn't matter, how irrelevant it is, and in t e big picture it is completelyirrelevant a bat. But for me it was important. It's like I. I got ready allwinter first time out there, whatever you do, don't onferish yourself and Iwas so worried about being embarrassed. I didn't care if I coul get. I didn'tcare if I had a great effect. I just wanted to save face, get through thefirst avatten I'd be all right, so I always got it ten. I always got itopening day always and it was the same thing yeah. I want to get a hit becausenow it counts win its al. My bubble gun card, but the most important thing isnot embarrassing myself. So so long as I can get through the first sit butalways had a you know. I was fortunate enough to goto three or four both seasons. It seem like every post season. You know thatfirst day, Yau go mine up on the side and theyre announceing your name likeit's opening day, but you know now it's the post season, I always hadebutterflies. Then I was fortunate enough to make an Allstar game thatteam that year always when they announced me there. So it's not like. Ihad them a lot, but but they never went away d and that's the cool thing aboutthe game. You know it mants. You know you'realove, you know you played this game for fourteen years and if you're stillgetting butterflies on opening day, you still got that fire in your Bellin andI think it's actually a cool thing. Valet stay and play on your next getaway to Los Angeles, the Westen, Bonneventure hotel and suits offersefforliss access to all the city of angels has to offer whether you'rehoping to catch a concert or sporting event. Our hotels just moments awayfrom all the action and accessible to Hollywood, beaches, museums and themeparks. The package includes a guest room and valet parking for reservations,use Promo Code PSF in the codebox when making your online reservation or callone two unde three six, two four one thousand and ask for Promo Code. PSF Yur acted in the game yeah. Well, I agree. I've always had them aswell. My thing was: they all went away when somebody hit me and that usuallywas a lot. So you know Erei Rthe, roppy, belbola theory, yeah right, you know and said mine wereguys ewer three hundred pounds and could run up four five and they wanted to take your head. Oni,don't Envu one bit for that. No, you know what I don't envy you, becausewhen I lived in St Louis I used to work out with Chris Carpenter and he wasrehaving. He was rehaving his shoulder and I would Sayn that batters box whenhe was rehain and not an throwing in the you know high s and working on hisstuff and I'm like I don't know. If I could do this, I'm thirty five yearsold. I could never hit this thing. You know, but I think it just goes withoutsaying that the more you do something you'd get used to it. You know what Imean, because you know there's car who's. Six six, you know, like you,said, he's a right handed guy and is coming right at my head and then itbreaks in I'm like Whoa. That was pretty good. You know, I think that's the cool thing aboutsports. Is You know a lot of times the other like in youryou know in football, for you you'r you step in against the you know, pickanybody now, if you steck in against the Garet coal, now it probably blow yourmind like how does anyone possibly well? I would be the same thing if I had todrop back and have these guys chasing me and I got to hit you know my ab or creceiver o Hoe. However, you doing right, you know that would be mindboggling to me. You know, for for a for an NBA, you know power forward to run a root and have to catch a touch,it's stuff that it makes. You...

...appreciate the other sports and howcool it is it and I think the easiest thing for us in our respect and sports,how we see that is, go out and play golf Wi h with a tour player and justsit there and just watch how pure they hit shots and it'. Just like wow, it'sreally cool, seeing somebody! That's that good in another sport at you know play atour level in another sport. It's really fascinating to me and I love beingaround him and just be it, and that's really one of the only sports that youcan go out with other professionals and see like you know where I've playedgolf with a lot of hockey players. You know and they can swing it. Just likebaseball players can swing a club like no other and you can pound it. But thenyou go play with a little. You know a guy who is a professional golfer who'sabout five ten and he hits a ball about three thirty and you're going what inthe hell I'll come. This guy is out driving me what the hells going on youknow and it's just timing, everything's perfect. He understands his body, youknow, and there I'm leaning on one leg, because my left kneeis killing me andI'm trying to Swin Guard. It doesn't work that way. It's and you know golfwas always you know. I don't know about you, but golf fo me was always my kindof soon as that season ended. That was kind of my my refuse, who is like o.Now I get to go, do something that really isn't a stress, stressful. Itdoesn't matter whether I played good or bat. I just enjoy doing it' my releaseand I always appreciate it. It is a thingthat sould be a top player. You know a tour players could be a guy on the minitour. I it's just different. Would you raw you know just Tho consit this soundwhen he hits it. You know you can kind of shut your eyes and, and you know whohit it than amateur or pro it is pretty cool tha to see them. Well, you knowitis Te. They just had that match on right with with Tom, Brady and Payton,and then it was tiger and and e watched Tie Tiger and Phil Hittin the ballcompared to Tom and and Peyton. You know it's like they're, not evenswinging and Tom, a and Paytin er out there swinging. You know it looks likethey're swinging they're trying hard you know and it just it just shows youthe difference and well ll. It was funny for me. I had okay Wewere when Iplay I played in Atlanta one Ya, one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine.So I lived in Orlando and we trained at Disney. This E was our complex andtiger was a member at the course I was at so we had tiger come out for battingtrack one day and it was funny talk about a fish out of water.Here's the great tiger, Woods, Grac cul for work. I mean he can't get a ballout of. He can't hit a ball out of a shadow BP and I remember coming to meSaing Boony. I didn't realize how much strength is needed in this game, and Isaid I it Ait Strike Lat's, Techmique, Hin Gis, it's unbelievable and I saidwell now you know how I feel standing over a wedge right for me. It's reallyan easy skill for you. It's really tough, but but me hitting a wedge and Igot a Tuck it in here and I got to spin it. That's tough for me, it's easy foryou, so it's all relevant, but it's it's NACE and other guys coming and youknow in our arena kind of so we could be the big guy for the day because wego out of the golf course and we're definitely in fery. You know it's justkind of cool, I think. Would athletes go and and get to get to be on thefield with a with another athlete ind their sport makes them appreciate that,and I think it's a pretty cool interaction right right. So so you get to the end of your career. Didyou know you were going to retire? Did you wait till the season was over andthen figure it out now? I Oman I e my the end of my careerwas compcat. I played two thousand and five and it was real rough here for me.I was coming off. Let's see oh on of two: U Three! REALLY BIG YEARS! Oh four,I had a you know, kind of a down here...

...but thought a'll you knowi'll readDhewm back two thousand and five is when I really started to notice aphysical different. You know my knees werestarting to bother. I was feeling a little bit older, an my whole life. Inever felt old. You know I was always the guy that he get to the ball partthat first swing was was as hard as you could swing and the older guys thenasSay I don't know how you do that I, what do you make and everybody doesn'teverybody's back- feel like this and then one day and then one day it didn't.You know- and I noticed that two thousand and five Ihad a rough year and I contemplateed retire, but I forget why I didn't started with theNew York mets. My time in Seattle was done. I sou with the New York Mess. Iwent to Camp Ready to go. You know I hired mytrainer from Florida and I flew him out and out Tos teattle for the winter I trained. I got thebest shape I could be in. I got the forter for Spring Training and thatfirst week it just wasn't the same for me and Iwas looking around it and I wasn't enjoying myself. I couldn't wait to getout of there. I saw the young players in camp in thatpassion at that. You have in that look in their eye that I've had my wholelife and all of tha sudden I didn't have it, but what in I believe its yeahWilli randol marriage. I said William I'm to go. What are you talking aabout?You know you look great this and that I said I don't have an ar anymore e said. I understand that you know,because I got to a point in my life, so I you know, I went home and til be year off decided. I was going tomake a comeback. I I felt like I had jumped the gunretiring and I had what, if in my brain- and I really want to have weater likeso I signed with the Washington national, because the general manager there wasmy general manager in Cincinnati and ony years. We had, he had developed orecord in a really good relationship and I called him I said: Listen I'llcome ready to go and you know appreciate the opportunity I sart withthe nationals an went back. This is after skipping a year which you know Iwould never suggest that len a lit. I tiryo right, but IAND baseball was really hard for Pi Tis atthis jucture and I went through the spring and I remember he he came to meat the end of Spring Sai. What do you think? I said? I think I'm not read.Let me go to the minor legs, so I believe at the time it was ColumbusIsoud. Let me go to Columba. Let me play a couple weeks. You know went downthere. I kind of figured out where I was physically and I got a phone callfrom his name. Is Jim Bo got a phone call from Jimmy said? What, where areyou at? I said? Well, he goes give me some numbers to. What can you do is say?Well, I can give you four days a week thatd. I could probably hit you toSteventy, not because I'm nat good, just from experience, Pribat hit youten or twelve homers and however many you know. However many days I playThatoll, I don't stay. How many I'll drive in I that its second, they canstill turn double play as good as anybody in the world. But I've lost astep both way and he said to me that's better than what we got, how about I'veCallin you up or the Big League tomorrow, and I I thought about- I saidJm, I'm gonna, I'm going to fly home, real quick discuss us in my family Ilget back yeah, I went home and because you know I played this gamefor so long and at my pc and in my hayday an it was really hard. Then, and youknow, I got to playsome great teams where we want a hundred and sixteengames. One year and I had the career year of my life and still baseball wasreally hard, and now I'm thinking I'e play for the Washington nationals whoI've seen that team they're going to lose a hundred games. I'm a shell ofwhat I used to be. Is this really worth it o me yeah and it really Lovi and Iended up retiring. Then you know a critial Leeav final, and...

...but it was but it was cool because Igot someclosure and there was no more thoughts. There was no more wet ansthat I knew that I was too old. I couldn't play like I usedto, O yeah andEr all the times and know as time for me to it farewell. Well, I, for me I called some friendswhen I was getting readyd, because I played fifteen years. I had a I brokemy back that year I had a bad knee and I was calling friends and I said how doyou know they said you just know. You know yeah, you have those Wiif questions and ofthey always told me that if you have what, if questions you're, not reallysure if you're done were you're going to know what it's over for sure, so what do you? What are you up to now,you retired from baseball you've been out for a while or you are you justhappy in retirement youhave Bu. Did you starting companies? What are you doingnow? Are you involved in some charities? I in well we've been locked down for whatnow three months right still come slowly, where I'm at Yeah Dow over the year, I a I retired. I didI coached my kids quite a bit. I did that for two or three years. You knowmy sons now because they miss their their junior year in high schoolbaseball. So now we got summer ball, so I'll probably go out and coach them forthis. I coached in the in the open ASEOrganization for couple years on the minor leagues I really enjoyed thatyeah. I just took too much. It just took too much time away from from my kids, so I kind of scratch thatI'm doing some stuff right before this I was on it. I started doing some MLBnetwork stuff, and hopefully I'm going to pursue this- that when we come outof this I've been doing a lot of FUC. You know a lot of radio shows a lot ofserious XA, have a lot of a lot of podcast, so yeah starting to get in this arena and thinkabout pursuing stumeting in this genre, actually, but other than that, just being a dad.That's awesome. That's awesome! So one of the last things we do on the show wecall it the two minute roll or no huddle, where Marty and I will firesome questions at you and that's how we end to show then, when we're done we'lllet people know how they can get a hold of you or find you or whatever. But sofor me, one of the things was, you know: you'vehad some idols and mentors like you mentioned, did you have anybody elsethat when you watch baseball growing up that you said that's kind of who Ireally want to be like? Did you have an idol beside your dad or your GRANDPA? Idid' You know, and it was weird because when I was growing up especially earlytrilood, it's like everybody would ask mem who's your favorite player. I don'tNav Their Payr. I love all those Gaddic. You know I go to the ball park and aShag is Mana trail and pizz cool and I like Schmitty, all the guys are mybuddy. You know it's O, but if I had to really break it down and say and notnecessarily saying who I want to be like, but who did who would I want to emulatehow you play the game? Why don't you step oun? That field who do I want toplay like peet rose, but I don't think I can really there's nobody that comes to Mindat.That is like him just watching when he took the field at seven o'clock andthat game was over ten. If you watch each and et this, this is the mostintense never gave up in a bat. You know he wasthat guy. That was four for four to go up for has PISI BET and the rest of uswould be happy with four for five and feet. Wasn't he had even Biv Fif? Maybethat's what Madin P rose, but he- and I necessarily wouldn't say Idon't, but but I if I had to put a favorite player on, it's got to be PAright, gooead money, all right. So what did you like when you would go, play baseball andhave a game? What was more fun for you to play with people cheering for you orplay with people booing at you oi now depenis depends where they'rebulling me. If they're pulling me at...

...home, theyre goingme in my ome field,I'm in trouble, yeah probbly, really bad. If they're booing me on the roadbrankl that isn'tendearment yeah, Hey I'm wo somethin if the visity they'retaking the time out of their day to boove me, so I took that os the badgeof honor. I think you know what I think. If it'sall said, N Deva, I got to choose one I'll. Take the CHARY man. What's yourwhat's your biggest pet peeve, that's kee! Oh Ah, this doest Hav to be sports can beanythinganything biggest pet peeve. THAT'S A no brainer! It's people that,okay, when the elevator door opens and you're in the elevator the people thatrush on at the elevator before you get off. That is not the protocol. Theprotocol is when the door opens you let the people extit the elevators beforeyou come on, and the pushy people that push their way on before he even comeout, but that be- and I always let hem know- I said- that's not how you do itASD, I'm walking in right. That's not how you do it Gran Good Morning, allright! So what would be your best? One liner, like if's, like somebody's goingto say, like Breat Boon, is known for this one line, or this word: what wouldthat be worry about yourself, Ilikeit Thats, why Aswera anything youget into my bed worry about yourself right, that's perfect! All Right! So ifyou go back to a young breat boon and give him a piece of advice, what wouldthat advice be that you would give to yourself? Et's see, stop an and smell the roses, a little bit more. It stop take the time to look around andappreciate what you have and how lucky you are to do what you do. It seems looking BACD and that'sprobably you know Gus, I don't know if you, you have thos same feelings. Ithink when we're when we're playing on our hight and it's so competitive, and it there's somuch on the line that you really don't have a time to just you know, sit there at Rigley field at a day,game, look around and go. How cool is this? I get to do this for a living. Ithink we're grinded so much and worry about who we're pitching WHO's,pitching tomorrowand o who were facing, and I'm for for my last twenty and youknow if I could give myself advice an say, enjoy myself a little a little bitmore slow it all down. Everything isn't isn't life and death, and just I don't know stoping. I agree becauseone thing I say I wish I would have done was just kind of not that I'm ajournal Guy, but even from high school, just right like if I had a game. Whatwas something I remember from that game like that, because you know I've playedin so many just like you, you've played in so many games. You can't rememberevery good thing but to go back and then just kind of write down somespecial moments that happend to that day, that that would be my advices isreally taking to count. What's going on with you write it down, so you neverforget it because for me, I'v been hitting a head a lot. So I forget a lotof stuff good morning to Mo so then what would you have one bestmemory, one Beth, one favorite memory favo, I don't think so. Maybe no, I don't think I could name just one, maybe th the day. I got called up,maybe my first, my first game in Baltimore. But I've got a lot. You know I don'thave any just defiing moments in my career. Ihave a lot that were really cool, but...

...there's not that one stutle. You knowThar's, not not that one moment that really Joswas me right now have you ever played armchair manager with yourbrother when you're watching a Yankees game, and he makes your decision giveme an example without a doubt okaybecause. We talk a lot about it too.He'll call me and once in a while he's fishing for some advice, right, Yoakow,and sometimes I give them. I tell them what I tell them, and sometimes ittakes my advice. Sometimes he doesn't. But I know if he's calling me late atnight'she's puzzled, he doesn't know what to do. Aaron's got a little bit of a quickhook when it comes to pulling guys out of the game, and I worry a lot aboutthe mindset of my guys areroundme. So so, for instance, if a guy I'm going torely on every fifth day for the entire season, I keep taking him out of thegame in the fifth before it's considered an official game, so he'snot going to get the winner, the los eventually he's going to start toresent me and be pissed and- and I alway tell the errand- you know itcomes out, and it's it's three to one in the fourth- and I just I question a lot of timeswhen he makes a pitching Chang. Now three one he's winning so by taking himout, he gets a no decision, let him get through the fist. So he get a decision.I know the games changing and the numbers are changing and they're, notconsidering winds and losses as heavily as they used to, but they're still winsand losses, and believe me to that picture its important to him to get thewin versus not get to win. You knowthat's like telling me, as a hitterwit that RBI wasn't really important, really pretty important to be right. No, I question a few things. Were there andthere andind, usually his talks with me orwho should I go with tomorrow? FFOR, this plaay off, you know spot and theonly advice I give theere and all the time is listen. I can. I can tell youwhat I see on TV and what I think can give you my advice, but when it comesdown to to a Gu decision, you got to go with your guy you're, theonly one that knows you're the guy in the clubhouse with you guys are afamily Fhor, a hundred and sixty two games. So only you know what that GuyThinking, that's the interesting parter of managing and being a people personto be able to look at another guy's eyes and know is ECON, or does he haveanother two innings in them? Only you can know that. I can't know that fromwatching Bron TV yeah. No, I hear you one last one, so I'm assumingbaseball's got to get started again at some point. It's got to be a shortendseason, who's, your pick for WHO's, going to win it all this year. The Yankees are healthy on papernobody's better, and that has nothing to do with Aran. That's just an know,my Animalysi my analytical side, I think Houston's going to surprisepeople and be better than they think they got a big cloud that they've gotat so they've got a p. they've got a play out of you know they didthemselves and they pr themselves that way right, I'm not a guy. That's really reallyruing them for what happens, because I think it's a lot more widespread thanpeople think if there were electronics involved, we don't have all the facts ethat their electronic ball on on your person, that's a different level and Ithink, look at her yeah. That's a conspiracy theory to me. As now I thinkit's widespread, but the scretis going to be pretty heavy, especially the waythey came out and defended themself. They went to the podium and read a BSletter yeah. You know when you get caught and stuff like that, you got tocome out and show me some remorts and I didn't see that, but I think they'resurprisingly, can have a better year than people think because of thetownelt Leve of that team. I still believe that's e, usually telling theteam I got ta go with the Yankees and I...

...think it's a no brainer in the NationalLeague dodgers are definitely the classic e Lak. Still all right.
