Former Major Leaguer Mike Redmond on why he took batting practice nude to break up losing streaks:
“I did it in Florida originally and we went on to win the World Series,” Redmond, now manager for the Class-A Lansing Lugnuts, said by phone Tuesday. “Whenever I look back not only my career but when we were playing the best, we were having the most fun. We were relaxed, joking around, ragging on each other. We never allowed ourselves to take each other too seriously.
“You’ve got to sit back sometime and say at the end of the day, it’s a fun game. In Little League, win lose or draw, all you’re concerned about is whether you get to go to McDonald’s after the game.”
Play Loose. Play Hard. Play Smart.
