Ever been to Mariners Fanfest? As an announcer for Jack FM, I am actually considered a member of the press! Shocking. I even have a Seattle Police Department Press Pass. Even more shocking. So when the opportunity came to be able to talk to ‘The Bone,’ I jumped. Literally. Into the dugout, when Jay Buhner came around for interviews.
Now I had heard rumors about this particular story involving milk, gag reflexes, Buhner and Piniella, but that’s all I knew it to be, a rumor. I was a bit intimidated to bring it up, but Jay was happy to retell the tale.
Jay still helps out with player development for spring training and throughout the season. But wait’ll you hear him tell the story of messing with the Skipper.
