Ex-MLB player, coach goes viral with granddaughter’s Tik Toks

Wes Stock, 88, has pretty much seen in his life around the baseball game.

LAKEWOOD, Wash – The four-time World Series champion from Lakewood is making waves on social media with his niece, with a video of the two talking about his more than two decades in Major League Baseball (MLB). ).

Wes Stock, 88, has pretty much seen in his life around the baseball game.

“$13,500 and I had a great year that year, the next year I got the highest contract I’ve ever had as a player, $20,000,” Stock said.

It was just a contract with the Baltimore Orioles that he re-signed in 1964.

Stock has 23 years of major league baseball experience as a pitcher and coach, including four World Series championships.

“It’s an honor to have your name on it (a copy of the World Series trophy in Stock’s dining room) because you’ve been a part of the club,” said Stock.

It was that replica trophy along with his other unique baseball memorabilia that inspired his granddaughter, Megan Rage, to create a Tik Tok series called “Baseball Stories With Grandpa internal”.

Rage said: “We had a really great time making the video and it was amazing how interested people were in baseball and all the wealth of knowledge that grandpa had.

The series has garnered more than 23 million views since it began a year ago. One of their most popular videos is of them being denied entry to a Tacoma Rainiers game last month, even though Stock has a “lifetime ticket” to any MLB game except the knockouts. .

A pass he says he has received since he played and coached for more than eight years in the MLB. However, both Stock and Rage said there were no hard feelings.

“They told Grandpa whenever he wanted to come see a Rainiers game that [they] Rage said. “And I have to give credit to the girls who are working there. There are probably not many passes in this area that make it into games and they may have never seen a pass there. “

Stock said he’s grateful for all that baseball has given him over the years and says no ring can compete with his love for his family.

“Baseball is not number one,” says Stock, “my family is number one and baseball is there and it’s just a job.”
