SPECIAL NOTE - EMAIL MESSAGE FROM KYLE GEORGE
Randy, I wanted to tell you that your team, one of the few at this level that are respectful, and not confrontational with calls. This has to come from YOU. I know I missed a couple but they never show emotion to it. I also thank you for remembering my name. We pride ourselves in calling the coach by their first name, as well as establishing a rapport with the catchers. Good hustle and knowing the game.
Kyle George
