He is white, I believe.  He could have a Guatemalan great grandmother for all I know.

What do you mean, you believe?  Are you making this guy up?  I've gone through the hitting coaches of all 30 major league clubs, and none of them fit your clues.

This isn't the hitting coach from "Bull Durham" or something, is it?

Is he the head, official hitting coach?  (i.e., he's not like a "special assistant hitting coach" or something, is he?)


It is Merv Rettmund, although I must say you were misleading with your responses.  Rettmund is no longer the hitting coach, hasn't been for a year.  "Is" in the questions above is present tense, implying the guy in question should be a current hitting coach.

Protest.  PROTEST!

WE HAVE A WINNER!!!!

The remainder of the clues:

1.    These days I’m a much traveled hitting coach.
2.    I played in both leagues
3.    I played in 4 world series.
4.    Of my thirteen big league seasons, only 4 were in the national league
5.    Following my career I was a coach on 3 world series teams
6.    Though most of my playing was in the AL, most of my coaching has been in the NL.
7.    Most recently I lost my job to a former Rookie of the Year
8.    I have never served as a major league manager
9.    My playing days saw me as both a member of the memorable Orioles teams of the early 70’s but also as a member of the Big Red Machine
10. I’m probably the only guy who’s been a hitting coach for Jose Canseco and Ken Caminiti.

Thanks for playing guys!  The game is tied at 7 apiece!

No.  Your question can mean whatever you like it to mean, but you need to be specific in your requests.  Is he current?  No.  Is he a major league hitting coach?  Yes, he has been.

If you want detailed answers ask detailed questions.  You're both the sorest winner and loser I've ever seen.

It is Merv Rettmund,

By the way, your answer here would have been wrong as well.

The man's name is RETTENMUND.  Spelled T-H-E-S-Z.

Calm down, dude, I'm just joking.  I pretty much have been with every trash talk I do.  It's nothing personal.

Good.  Now that we've got that settled, take off your skirt and bring on another one.  I must avenge my loss...

Tomorrow, my fine feathered fruity friend.  In the meantime, there's plenty of time to treat yourself to another pedicure and bikini wax.

Man, I had this one on the first page, but was far too late in the day to miss the first 90 random guesses of guys who arent even hitting coaches and such. Big J, keep em coming,  good stuff.

I love these things, but I always get there too late to play.
