Apparently this story has been around for a week, but as someone on the internet 16 hours a day who googles Mets every morning I missed it. It’s pretty funny.
Wright recently told the story of volunteering to coach 3-year-old Olivia’s co-ed tee-ball team. He showed up early for the first game to help set up the field and get his bearings. The opposing coach showed up shortly afterward and they struck up a conversation.
“So he goes, ‘I played a little college ball, I was pretty good,’” Wright recalled, as recounted by Radio.com, “and then he asked me, ‘Did you play?’ And I said, ‘Oh, I dabbled a little bit,’ and I got a nice chuckle out of that.” (via sportscasting.com)
