Angels hire Rick Eckstein

Looks like he was a hitting coach for the Nationals, an Olympic Team, a WBC team.  He also coached four different minor league teams.  Oh and he is also the assistant hitting coach and least that is what I am assuming.  I have no problem with it, but if you'd like to argue the definition of extensive, by all means.

Rick H. Eckstein (born March 4, 1973) is the former hitting coach for the Washington Nationals of Major League Baseball. Eckstein took over as the hitting coach in September 2008, after serving as the Columbus Clippers hitting coach. He also was the hitting coach on the United States national baseball team in the 2008 Olympics. Eckstein is an alumnus of the University of Florida. He is the older brother of former major leaguer David Eckstein. On July 22, 2013 he was relieved of his post.[citation needed]

On December 8, 2010, Eckstein donated his right kidney to his brother, Ken, who is currently suffering from a renal disease.[citation needed]

His wife also has a Star Wars/Doctor Who/other geeky stuff based apparel company that he seems to at least help out with stuff for occasionally.

 

I actually ran into him and got chat baseball for a little bit at a comic book convention over the weekend.

So does she have a Jar Jar Binks costume available?
