Balking Bob

I really enjoyed this interview with Bob Davidson. I definitely was not a fan of his during his career but after listening to his stories and getting a little perspective of what it’s like to work your way up to the big leagues I have to say I was very surprised. Sounds like a great guy with an awesome sense of humor and not the grumpy, balk calling, quick hook umpire he had the reputation for.
Great interview. Looking forward to more like this!

Angry defense of poor umpiring

It’s ridiculous. No objectivity and seething anger at fan frustration. Nearly unlistenable.

Great addition to an aready awesome website!

I’ve followed CCS for five or six years and I have participated in the UEFL for the past three years, so I know that Gil does a great job on everything he puts his hand to. This podcast is no different as evidenced by the first episode with retired MLB umpire Bob Davidson. I can’t wait for more episodes to come!
