KANSAS CITY -- Mike Redmond had a surprise office visitor on Monday when former Marlins manager John Boles dropped by to say hello. Boles is currently a senior advisor to Royals general manager Dayton Moore.
"He was a huge influence on me and my career," Redmond said. "I learned a lot from him."
The roles were reversed when Redmond played for the Marlins and occasionally was called into Boles' office.
"I was in there a few times," Redmond said. "But not for anything bad."
