Tom Walker, Neil Walker's dad, passed away. He was a really nice guy and he really loved the game. He told me the Pirates never offered Neil a contract that was even worth considering and was frustrated being traded away. It was special hearing straight from him telling me about Clemente's fateful night and how he himself was so close to having perished. He loved his brief career and being a big part of MLB alumni. Very nice man, I consider it a blessing I was able to enjoy a few brief moments with him
I saw that Sean Casey was not rehired by the Yankees as a hitting coach. He wants to stay in coaching but he also wants to be able to spend time with his wife and kids. He lives in Upper St Clair and suburb of Pittsburgh. I wonder if he would take the job of Bucs hitting coach?
Let's Go Bucs
