To celebrate being the most listened to episode of 2019, longtime friends and uniform experts Phil Hecken and Todd Radom re-join the boys to break down their favorite teams (more specifically…their logos, jerseys and caps) taking part in last year’s Copa de la Diversión.
Also…what is a bivouac?
Episode originally aired May 7, 2019.
To help celebrate the 200th episode(!) of the podcast, former Mayor of Cooperstown Jeff Katz joins the boys for the sixth time to talk about his upcoming Friends of Doubleday event before turning the tables, taking over the show and asking some listener questions and some of his own.
The mustachioed Baseball Brit, Joey Mellows, joins the boys to talk about his recently completed season-long journey across America, how his trip almost ended midway through its 162-game schedule, lays out the three ways to improve baseball and explains how he became Tulane’s favorite son.
Baseball historian Graham Womack joins the boys to talk about the news that Marvin Miller and Ted Simmons are heading to the Hall of Fame, looks ahead to this summer’s induction, discusses next year’s Golden Days and Early Baseball elections and reveals the one player he’d like to see in Cooperstown right now.
Brad Balukjian, the author of The Wax Pack, joins the boys to talk about the idea behind his new book (and why it took driving 11,341 miles and tracking down more than a dozen Major Leaguers to make it a reality), that time he pretended to be a multi-millionaire to meet Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk and why the story behind his wanting to document The Iron Sheik’s life might be more interesting that his life itself.
