Lynn Jones played for the Royals from 1984-1986 and was always well regarded for his tremendous outfield defense. Besides his work with the glove, Jones was also clutch at the plate for the Royals in both the ’84 and ’85 postseason, hitting a combined .375/.750/1.125. In addition to his time in Kansas City, Lynn also spent parts of five seasons with the Detroit Tigers. After his career, Jones went on to a long career as an MLB coach, including times with the Royals, and winning world championships with the Marlins and Red Sox. Jones recently joined Dave O to discuss how he never imagined he’d make it out of AA, having an older brother play in the Big Leagues, being a part of that ’85 World Series team, getting ribbed for being the first base coach that got George Brett picked off after his 3,000 hit and multitudes more!
