Today was not like any other day at the office. Normally, I would sit in my office and write some code, read some email, check reddit, and repeat only to mix that up once every three times by grabbing some water or tea. Oh no, not today. Sometimes, I might have two people in my office at the same time chatting about a project, but that's rare and only happens on occassion. Sometimes I even get phone calls from telemarketers, but even that didn't happen today. As I was in my office, I heard a few people enter the building, probably customers, and one introduced himself as George Brett. Could it be the famous Kansas City Royals player, George Brett who is known for:
His 3,154 career hits are the most by any third baseman in major league history, and 15th all-time. Baseball historian Bill James regards him as the second-best third baseman of all time, trailing only his contemporary, Mike Schmidt. Brett was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1999, with what was then the fourth-highest voting percentage in baseball history (98.2%), trailing only Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan, and Ty Cobb. In 2007, Cal Ripken Jr. passed Brett with 98.5% of the vote. His voting percentage was higher than all-time outfielders Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Stan Musial, Ted Williams, and Joe DiMaggio. That same year, he ranked Number 55 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players, and was nominated as a finalist for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team. Brett is one of four players in MLB history to accumulate 3,000 hits, 300 home runs, and a career .300 batting average (the others are Stan Musial, Willie Mays, and Hank Aaron). Most indicative of his hitting style, Brett is sixth on the career doubles list, with 665 (trailing Tris Speaker, Pete Rose, Stan Musial, Ty Cobb, and Craig Biggio). Combining his superior hitting skill with his great defensive ability and team focus (and humility), George Brett is arguably one of the most complete baseball players of all time.
Could it be?
Yes - IT WAS!!!!!
Later I found out he was not here just to see me, he was here on behalf of Brett Bros Baseball Bats.
