Gary Thurman

Gary Thurman played for the Royals from 1987-1992, appearing in 325 KC contests. Known as one of the fastest men in the game, the outfielder once stole 70 bases at Fort Myers (1985) after being the Royals first round selection in 1983. Following his times with Kansas City, Thurman went on to play with the Tigers, Mariners and Mets, logging parts of nine seasons at the major league level. Since retiring in 1999, Gary has been a professional manager, coach or coordinator and as of 2016, serves as the outfield/baserunning coordinator for the Washington Nationals. He recently joined Dave O to talk about almost choosing to attend Purdue on a football scholarship, challenging times in the minor leagues, his favorite restaurant in KC (which will shock you) and tons more!
