BOB CLANTON (manager, North Mission Viejo Skylarks Little League team): [Nick Punto] was our best player, by a country mile. But whenever he put a ball in play and the throw went to first, he slid. Headfirst, every time. He’d just yell “GET MONEY” and slide.
JEFF ALVIN (teammate, North Mission Viejo Skylarks): every time. If he was safe, “GET PAID!”
CLANTON: we’d pull him aside and say, “Nick, you gotta run through the bag. Sliding slows you down and you’re gonna hurt yourself one of these days.” He’d just say, “Yeah, coach, got it, c’mon let’s gooooo!” Then he’d do it again anyway.

Denard Span joins Kevin Millar and Chris Rose to talk cracking bats, the Miami Heat, his unimpressive basketball skills, his BFF Ben Revere, Joe Mauer’s shampoo commercials, and lots more.
He does not want Matt Capps to take off his shirt, FYI.
