Video: Erik Kratz Gets Emotional Talking About Helping Hispanic Pitchers

Videos by OutKick

Erik Kratz, a 40-year-old journeyman catcher who is now on the Yankees, got emotional in an interview discussing why he takes pride in helping young Hispanic pitchers:

Obviously, Kratz is not going to be put in bronze in Cooperstown one day, but you can see why he’s stuck around in MLB to this age, as his intangible leadership is on display. I’m a Brewers fan, and even though he was only there for one season — 2018 — he’s the type of player you remember fondly for a long time as you reflect on past players you’ve rooted for.
