Video: Rene Lachemann imparts some valuable life lessons

Aug 22, 2013, 6:31 PM EDT

Rockies first base coach Rene Lachemann was kind enough to give a baseball to a young fan earlier this week in Philadelphia. However, what he said to him will surely have a more lasting impact on his life.

Pure unadulterated gold. We are all better people for having witnessed that. If some columnists could have it their way, Lachemann’s next trick would be to put Yasiel Puig on the straight and narrow.

    Is Lachemann available to babysit next weekend?

        He’d give ‘em no sweets before dinner, get them to bed on time, and take no lip. He’s hired.

    It’s o.k. to a point but what kind of Jackass tells a little kid that the visiting team is gonna Whup-up on the kids home team.

      by the way once that didn’t happen why should the kid believe anything he said ?

      Relax – it’s the Phillies. It’s not like it was a real MLB club.

      This guy’s a total A-hole. He needs to mind is own damn business and quit sweatin this little kid. BTW nice touch about talkin smack about this kid’s team. D-bag!

    @D.J. ->”If some columnists could have it their way, Lachemann’s next trick would be to put Yasiel Puig on the straight and narrow.”

    Someone just needs to teach Yasiel to hit a curve ball.

    Lachemann is full of all kinds of advice. These were from earlier this season:

    THAT’S how you fix a Phillies fan!

    Get to them while they’re young.

    I sit down on the 1st base line at Coors and he does this every inning. He also did it in Colorado Springs. It is always great to see the kids reactions. I once asked a kid what he learned from him and the Kid said “you listen to this guy and you get a baseball”.
