I was glad to see the Royals name George Brett as their hitting coach (they've won 4 straight games since then).

I'm a Tigers fan, but George Brett is one of my all time favorite players.

He looks like he is infusing the team with some energy and appears to be having a blast working with the players.

I was 8 years old when he hit .390 in 1980 and remember looking at the box scores every day in the newspaper to see what he did the previous night....of course ESPN was in it's infancy back then (we didn't have cable anyway back then) and it was well before the Internet age and 24/7/365 information overload....so when I was a kid, I relied on the daily box scores, the weekly installment of TWIB, and Tigers games on the radio.
