Definitely the funniest thing I have read all season: The Onion reports that the Royals have hired Tom Emanski ("winner of back to back to back AAU titles!") to teach the team fundamentals.
"The first thing I did after Sunday’s game was gather the players andask all 25 of them what each one thinks is the most important part of
baseball, and an astounding
21 of them said ‘hitting home runs,’
including seven pitchers," said Emanski, who stressed to them that
"defense wins ballgames." "The second thing I did was line them up
against the fence and hit sharp line drives at them from 20 feet away
to improve their reaction time."
