A deep dive into the Baseball Mines.
Bobby is helping MiLB front office staff tell their stories. Minor League Baseball front office staff have to be passionate in everything they do, whether they are groundskeepers, sales managers, general managers, or even creative services workers like myself. Each staff member has a story to tell and Bobby has given them a place to share their experience with the game and industry we all love so much.
P.S. listen to episode 28 on repeat its the best one ;)
Great insider look at minor league baseball
Bobby's inside look at the less-than-glamourous game and culture of minor league baseball is alway entertaining. His time in the profession gives him access to unique guests who always have fun stories to tell.
Bobby F’in Coon!
I was a writer when I met Bobby in Southern Wisconsin all those years ago and you won’t meet a more genuine story teller. I couldn’t be more excited that this podcast now exists.
