Words of wisdom from Rockies' foul ball-giving coach

By Mike Harrington

This video has gone viral in the last 24 hours and I'm posting it here as well for those who haven't seen it yet. 

It's Rockies first base coach Rene Lachemann having a chat Wednesday with a young fan in Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park. Just listen.

Lachemann's fan lectures when he gives away souvenirs are pretty well known in the Denver area. Yahoo's Big Stew Blog provided another one from last month, including a Santa Claus reference. Hysterical.
