Tommy Lasorda & Kyle Russell Talk Hitting

Tommy Lasorda and Kyle Russell work on hitting in this instructional video.



"I'll give you an Oklahoma guarantee! It ain't worth a shit!" Ah Tommy, you are priceless. This is what I found online for the meaning of an "Oklahoma guarantee":
An “Oklahoma gurantee” isn’t much of a guarantee. The term probably began with Oklahoma used car dealers offering shady “guarantees” for their used cars. An “Oklahoma gurantee” might mean that “if the product breaks in two, you get to keep both pieces!” An “Oklahoma guarantee” also might mean that “this product works, or you can call me a son of a bitch!”

The term “Oklahoma guarantee” has been popular in Texas and Oklahoma, but has some limited nationwide currency.
For those of you wondering, Tommy was born in Pennsylvania.

  3. Roberto- Found it on Google Search when I was looking up Kyle Russell's numbers this season.

    Did you post this before?

    Haha I would be pretty late to the party then I suppose. And pretty dumb for not remembering you posted it. I'll look through your archives now.
