The Day Pine Tar Became Relevant

It was 25 years ago today, and we have to give some mention of it. George Brett goes apeshit and storms the field at Yankee Stadium, after a Goose Gossage pitch lands in the seats.

Pine tar, we love your smell and you are one of our fondest memories of our playing days.

As for Brett, our buddy met him at a coaching banquet and heard him speak. He spoke of wild nights and slump busters. Hell of a pure hitter.

It was 1983, and I was not even one. Look at those stirrups.
