Kansas City Royals give away mini George Brett pine tar bats

On July 24, 1983 Kansas City Royals third baseman George Brett lost his mind in one of the more memorable tirades in Major League Baseball history during a game against the New York Yankees. Here’s why.


The Royals commemorated the moment yesterday as they gave away miniature versions of Brett’s bat to fans at their game versus the Yankees.


Kansas City defeated New York 5-1 to win just their second home game of the season in front of over 29,000 at Kauffman Stadium, most of whom were probably there to receive their free handout. In other Royals promotion news, the first 10,000 fans in attendance on May 19 will receive an All-Star Garden Gnome.
