Mike Schmidt was on Harry Kalas in the booth on Saturday and he had a lot to talk about. Baseball, The Hall of Fame, and beating his wife. Wait, what???
Harry: "It's a full count here to Willie Harris. Getting down to another sport, Michael Jack, how's your golf game?"
Mike Schmidt: "Pretty good, Harry. I've been beating the hell out of my wife pretty regularly."
Awkward pause; muted laughter
Harry: "At golf, I hope? At golf, I hope. Line drive and that's a fair ball..."
Most people would have probably lost it on air when something along these lines was said, but Kalas is a pro. Too funny.
Michael Jack: S**t! (Philadelphia Weekly)
(Many thanks to RUTS for being Philly enough to have found this. And that is his wife in the photo above with the ever rad Oakridge Boys)
