Ron Washington's Game 7 Speech

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

In case you didn’t see this over the weekend, someone with the Rangers leaked the talk given by Ron Washington to his players before Game 7. Whoever did this should and probably will lose their job, but it’s an interesting window into the way Washington communicates internally and it gives a glimpse of why his players like him as much as they do.


Be warned that this is profanity laced, so fragile ears shouldn’t hear this. Michael Young, Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz also chime in, encouraging their teammates. Check it out here if it’s not too soon for you. Check out Lone Star Ball’s discussion on the leaked audio here.
