Steve Bartman Once Coached The Younger Brother Of Giants Pitcher George Kontos

Bob Costas told a story about how Steve Bartman (if you don't know who Bartman is, ask a Cubs fan) once coached the younger brother of Giants pitcher George Kontos.  It was a 13 year old travel baseball team.

Who knew Bartman coached baseball?  The reason he stopped coaching the team was the foul ball heard round the world.  That's right he was forced to quit coaching because the media showed up at his team's practice the next day.

What a story.  The most unbelievable part to me is Bartman once coached a travel baseball team.
