Geoff Schumacher joins the boys to talk about his personal interest in the seedy Las Vegas underbelly, the history of The Mob Museum, why we’re all still enamored by the 1919 Black Sox scandal, whether or not he’s excited about baseball (seemingly) heading to Sin City and shares the story of everyone’s favorite mass murder…the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre!

Ben Christensen, Community Engagement Manager for Hat Club, joins the boys to talk about the benefits of being a Hat Club member, his own involvement with the company, a lifelong obsession with headwear and why he’s the perfect person to rep the brand, how he chooses his eclectic hat and jersey combos and the good and bad (it’s mostly bad) of the current Major League laundry.

The day was April 15, 1997 and, apparently, all Hell was about to break loose at Major League Baseball's inaugural Jackie Robinson Day celebration at Shea Stadium.

“We have snipers all around the stadium, just in case something were to happen" is what the Secret Service told Mr. Met, the New York Mets beloved mascot.

Did the Secret Service REALLY want to kill Mr. Met...and why?

Just in time to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Major League” (and the 30th anniversary of “Major League 2”!), author Jonathan Knight returns to talk to the boys about the best and worst baseball movies, the lasting legacy of the “Major League” franchise, why Milwaukee was chosen to play host to the 1989 film and, for some reason, the weird coincidences surrounding the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln and their connection with showbiz siblings.

On April 8, 1974, Hank Aaron sent an Al Downing pitch over the left field wall for his 715th home run. Waiting for him at third base...Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star Ron Cey.

Was "the Penguin" secretly hoping Hank would go yard? How would he react the next time he encountered the new home run king?

Brad Balukjian, author of The Six Pack, returns to talk to the boys about how many miles he traveled to write his latest book compared to the last one, promoting the thing now versus during a pandemic, whether or not it’s too early to plan his next project, re-connecting with The Iron Sheik (and getting closure) and Shawn and Lou become the charter members of The Brad Pack!
