After over three decades in the minors, Mike Jirschele is living his dream of making it to Major League Baseball.

Jirschele was hired as a coach with the Kansas City Royals, after leading their AAA club for over 10 seasons.

Local 5 Sports Director Burke Griffin caught up with Jirschele last weekend when the Royals were in Milwaukee for a pair of exhibition games.
