WK's Coach's Tips


Guest Coach - Bob "Flea" Lillis


Here are some tips for infielders from an old friend, Bob "Flea" Lillis, the Giant's former bench coach. Bob makes a guest appearance and provides us with his keys to solid infield play.

"Flea" retired from baseball following the 1996 season after eleven seasons in the Giants organization. Bob had been in professional baseball since 1951. He spent ten years as a major league infielder with the Dodger, Cardinal, and Astro organizations, and then went on to manage the Astros for four years.

Here are Flea's keys to success for an infielder.
