Edgar Frederick Yost III was a Major League Baseball player with the Milwaukee Brewers (1980-1983), Texas Rangers ( 1984 ), and Montreal Expos ( 1985 ). When Ned, his nickname, took the field on April 12, 1980 , he became the first Dublin High School graduate to reach the majors! How did Kentucky Fried Chicken help him make it to the show? Ned Yost shared his journey:

"I went a whole year in high school without getting a hit, 0-for-36 my sophomore year. I didn't get a hit all year. The next year, I hit like .420 and the year after that, .350 or something like that and was all-conference. I didn't play varsity until I was a senior in high school, but I got real strong and grew up between my junior and senior years that summer. Kentucky Fried Chicken gave me all my strength !

I went to work for Kentucky Fried Chicken. I was a pot scrubber. I'd sit there and scrub pots all summer long and my arms got strong. And I came back and had a cannon for an arm. I never hit a home run until I was in college. I had no offers to play anywhere so I walked on at Chabot. The counselor asked me what I was going to do and I said I was going to be a Major League baseball player. She said, 'Do you know the odds of that?' I always knew all along."

Ned Yost spent six years in the majors serving as a backup catcher for each franchise, never getting into more than 80 eighty games any season, and ended his playing career with a .212 batting average in 605 at-bats. After hanging up his playing cleats, he transitioned to bullpen coach for the Atlanta Braves, from 1991 through 1998, helping them win a pennant in 1991, 1992, 1996, 1999, and a World Series in 1995.

In 1999, Ned Yost became the third base coach for the Braves, but his coaching resume was highly regarded and the Milwaukee Braves named him their manager in 2003, a position he held until 2008. After being fired, he was named manager of the Kansas City Royals in 2010, and led the franchise to back-to-back American League pennants (2014-2015), including a World Series championship in 2015, their first since 1985.
