Glenn Ezell spent seven years as a coach in the Royals organization, including six in Kansas City (1989-1994) as both bullpen and bench coach. This followed nine years of managing in the minors (with three more coming after his KC days) and an eventual total of 12 seasons as an MLB coach. Originally a catcher signed by the New York Mets organization, Ezell also spent time with the Twins and Giants chains during a ten year minor league playing career. He recently joined Dave O to talk about the unlikely journey to the Big Leagues which began with semi pro ball in Tucson, to living with 19 year old Nolan Ryan, having Yogi Berra along for an entire month when he managed in the minor leagues, all of his coaching stops (including 30 minutes worth of time devoted to KC) and much, much more! *** NOTE *** EVERY ROYALS AND BASEBALL FAN SHOULD LISTEN TO THIS.

Dave, I decided I would listen to this interview again which I enjoyed before and still enjoyed today. I don’t know if you have heard, but my cousin Glenn Ezell passed on 11/9/2020. Glenn was like my older brother as when my uncle died he spent a lot of time time at our home.

This man saved my career in the early years. Most giving coach I was ever around.
Really knew how to connect to young players and instill confidence on a daily basis. I will remember him always
Just read of Glenn Exell passing. What a great baseball man but even a better person. Thanks for having him on before he passed away. Bill Sobbe
