Pittsburgh Pirates Hire Osiel Flores


Sometimes when you’re at the gym, you never know who is riding on the treadmill beside you.   A few questions later and it sounds like a job offer was made.  Surely there is more to it than that, but it’s still a pretty wild story.

According to this video, Osiel Flores is now a roving catching instructor for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The 28-year old Flores was a Cleveland Indians farmhand making it as high as the Double-A level.  The Texas native spent the past five seasons playing for the Independent Edinburg Roadrunners.

The report says Flores will travel between Bradenton and the Dominican Academy.

This is an interesting video.
