Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News interviewed 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh recently. In the interview coach Harbaugh talked about his love for baseball, his admiration for Oakland A’s manager Bob Melvin, and his hunger for foul balls. He also shared in this interview that he once peed himself waiting to get a picture with a former Cleveland Indian.
He says that he was in line to meet this player with his brother. He was 5, his brother was 6 or 7. He had to go to the bathroom really bad. He was about 20 people deep in the line, so he had to make a decision right then and there. He decided to go in his pants so he wouldn’t miss the chance to get his picture with this player.
This story reminded me of a time when I was playing little league, probably 6 myself. I was in leftfield and the inning was LONG! I felt as if I was isolated on an island, no one was around. I can’t remember seeing a coach, just being in the moment of either peeing my pants or running off the field. So like coach Harbaugh, I made the choice to stay on the field with my team and handle my business in my pants. Yep, I peed my pants too!
Have you ever been caught in a situation like coach or myself? Let me know, @LittleJoeRadio on Twitter.
