Guy Hansen

Guy Hansen spent eleven years as a pitching coach in the Royals organization, including four in Kansas City (1991-1993, 2005). Besides that, Hansen also served as a Royals area scout (1981-1983), a national cross checker for the Royals scouting department (1994-1995) and KC bullpen coach (1996-1997). If you add those years up, plus the four he spent as a pitcher in the KC minor leagues (1969-1972), Hansen dedicated over 20 years of his life to the Royals organization. He recently joined Dave O to talk about his new book “A Baseball Guy,” which is available on Amazon and laced with amazing Royals story after amazing Royals story, as is this interview. Enjoy!

  1. Very good interview! I can’t believe you brought back names like Hector Wagner and Jim Campbell :). Guy Hansen was very well liked and respected in Puerto Rico as a member of the Mayaguez Indios. Great baseball guy!

  2. I have TWO connections with Guy (Rock) Hansen… I was born in KC — my earliest memory is going to a KC A’s Bat Day when I was 3 yrs old; I was thrilled when the Royals came into the league. My family and I remember when Rock was drafted and served as a Royals coach.

    The 2nd connection I have is that my son, Zack, has had the privilege of working with Rock in his barn. Rock is sooooo amazing at connecting with kids and getting them to understand not only the mechanics of pitching, but how pitching can help develop an overall love for the game AND how pitching can develop a self-confidence that can carry over into school and relationships. He’s absolutely incredible!
