Rene Lachemann Gives Advice to Young Phillies Fan


Colorado Rockies first base coach Rene Lachemann gave a young boy great life advice after handing him a ball at Thursday's Philadelphia Phillies-Rockies game. Lachemann told the boy to clean his room, eat his vegetables and do his homework.

My favorite part of the exchange: “Do you play video games?" The boy nods. “Don’t. Or you'll be dumb as the rest of these idiots out here!"

Getting a souvenir at a baseball game is great. But this young fan was given truly valuable advice that can help him for the rest of his life.

It's not the first time Lachemann has done this, either.

In other news, Rene Lachemann is the man.
