You guys remember Mike Olt? Do you really want this guy as a hitting instructor?

Well, good luck to him.

I dunno. The guy was a first round pick and his eyeballs didn't even work. He probably had some kind of secret sauce he can teach the kids.

I have heard Rocco Baldelli is a super nice dude. He was a great player before the injuries/medical condition derailed his career.

Hey, if you remember this guy:

Image

...congratulations! You're old.

Check out what happened to him:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rollen_Stewart#Arrest

Stewart was arrested in 1992 after a standoff in a California hotel during which he entered a vacant room with two men he was attempting to kidnap and surprised a maid who then locked herself in the bathroom. Reportedly, Stewart believed that the Rapture was due to arrive in six days. During the standoff, he threatened to shoot at airplanes taking off from nearby Los Angeles International Airport, and covered the hotel room windows with "John 3:16" placards.

Stewart is currently serving three consecutive life sentences in prison on kidnapping charges, having rejected a plea deal of 12 years in order to spread his message in open court. After being sentenced, he began a religious tirade and had to be restrained by bailiffs. He became eligible for parole in 2002, but was denied as recently as March 2010; his next parole review was to be in 2017. After this conviction, he was found guilty of four stink bomb attacks.


In short: watch the horsefeathers out for Jesus weirdos at sporting events.
