WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – The Nationals may be riddled with superstars but male models is another story.
Unexpectedly, a picture surfaced Tuesday of Nats’ pitching coach Steve McCatty in the July 1984 issue of Playgirl. Fortunately for Cat, it was just one, partially clothed photo of him sporting the ‘just got out of the gym, time to catch some rays’ look, which you can see here.
And completely expectedly, the entire Nationals pitching staff had t-shirts made in mockery of McCatty, according to Davey Johnson.
“Well first of all, when they showed me that picture I said ‘Who is this guy?'” Johnson told the Junkies on 106.7 The Fan. “Then when they told me it was McCatty I said ‘He’s gone down hill from there.'”
“I thought he looked great. Of course my eyes are bad,” Johnson joked. “What was funny, everybody on the pitching staff had a shirt with that picture on it. I don’t know how they could do that.”
Wapo’s Adam Kilgore can confirm:
Haren got T-shirts of McCatty's Playgirl shot made today. "UNTUCK" on back. "Utter joy," Clippard said. "This is the best day of my life."—
