Getting Me Through Quarantine! So many young stars to hear about!!
The player interviews are redundant, which is understandable as the prospects have pretty much the same answers to the same questions. Like all podcasts, politics pop in from the hosts. Lots of behind the scenes milb info towards the end of each episode.
Love the podcast
Last year I met Ben hill at a Fayetteville woodpeckers game it was great after hearing him the night before talked to our play by play guy and gal I enjoyed the podcast and can’t wait till April 9th
