HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY FROM DAN PATRICK SHOW

Hall of Famer Johnny Bench joined the show to talk about a wide variety of baseball topics.

Bench talked about how stardom was different back in the day. He said they were big stars, but it wasn’t the pandemonium you see now. “Today everybody has to watch their back,” Bench said. “I tell these young kids, a lot of people don’t like you.”

Bench said that the money has changed everything as well. He said when kids get money they don’t listen. That’s why teams don’t take as many high schoolers.

Bench talked about how he, Pete Rose and Joe Morgan were leaders on his team and nothing happened in his locker room that he wouldn’t say something about. And that they didn’t expect any different treatment – they were stars, but they were on time and tried hard.

Bench also told an incredible story about Ted Williams giving him an autograph stating he’d be a future Hall of Famer — after he’d been in the League for just one year.
