Hall of Famer and Royals VP George Brett joined the show to talk about his team and the anniversary of the Pine Tar game.

Brett explained that he didn’t change roles from hitting coach to executive because hitting coach was too much work. He said it was hard, but he really felt it was time to go back to his old job because he was only filling in the role in a pinch.

Brett had interesting comments on steroids. He looked back at a Sports Illustrated article on Lyle Alzado and all the terrible things steroids did to your body and wondered why anyone would want to do that. Brett said he never was tempted because he never cared about weight lifting.

“We had a weight room for 20 years and I didn’t even know where it was,” Brett said.

Brett argued that Pete Rose should get into the Hall of Fame before Barry Bonds because PEDs had such a huge impact.

Brett talked about the 30th anniversary of the Pine Tar game.  He said he worked that day and there was no reason to celebrate it.

“The one thing that I wished I wouldn’t have done is use the bat again,” Brett said. He said he shaved off the pine tar and used it again. He shaved down the pine tar and then Gaylord Perry advised him to take it out of rotation.
