    Starkville | Charley Steiner visits Starkville for a special Vin Scully tribute

    In a special episode of Starkville, long-time Dodgers radio voice Charley Steiner visits Jayson and Doug to share stories of the late Vin Scully. Steiner decided he wanted to broadcast Dodger games when he first heard Scully call a Brooklyn Dodger game as a 5 year old, eventually realizing that dream and working with Vin for 14 seasons in LA.

    Jayson and Doug share their own Scully stories before answering a Scully inspired listener trivia question. All that and Strange but True!

Hunter Pence + Grant Brisbee! Perfection!

It’s weird to review 5 different shows with one review but here goes.... Hunter Pence is a treasure and his insights and stories of his experiences as an MLB player is priceless. The other shows all have their own niche and overall there is something for every baseball fan somewhere in these 5 shows.
I feel sorry for the broadcasters always having to read copy for erectile dysfunction meds - maybe guys watching baseball ahoy get off the coach more and improve their circulation?
I wish they didn’t plug gambling in every episode - that sucks - and I don’t know why - as a subscriber to The Athletic - I cant access an ad free version of the pods- but the content of the show is totally worthwhile and you should check it out .
