Phil Allard takes an interesting look at the Yankees third base coach this season, Bobby Meacham, with some fun memories mixed in. Click here to read it.
My funny (?) story on Meacham: I saw an interview with Bobby’s wife on TV once, around 1990ish. Meacham was with the Royals’ Triple-A team trying to get back to the bigs, if I remember right. I think the interview with her was to get the wife’s take on life in the bushes. Anyway, in the interview, she offered this gem: “Before I met Bobby, I dated Mark Langston. I guess I married the wrong ball player?”
And, Mrs. Meacham has a tie to Joe Girardi too. Back in 1997, she wrote a feature on Joe coming to New York for a site called TheGoal.com – which is connected to TheGoal.org. If you follow this link, you’ll find stories about many Yankees on TheGoal.com.
