Baseball is a game of tradition. It has remained largely unchanged for over 100 years, and it's easy to think that the players on the field are just as traditional as the game itself. But that couldn't be further from the truth. Today's game is filled with some of the most interesting and exciting personalities in the history of baseball. On-field, off-field and everything in between, enjoy a conversation among baseball people, and get to know the players and the game you already thought you knew.

Touchstone's Globe ,

Smart and relatable.

I have become a big fan of this podcast, but my favorite so far has been his interview with Brent Strom. So exciting to hear a coach of his years (he’s even older than I) relate so well to the intelligent and eloquent McHugh. I will enjoy more of this.

More than just baseball

Full disclosure, I’m a big Astros and McHugh fan, so I was likely going to enjoy this to some degree regardless. I did and then some. This is a superb podcast. Many podcasts get stale after an hour and I don’t revisit, but this is fresh.
What makes this so refreshing is it’s not just about baseball. It’s actually a small element of it. They don’t talk much about games and what’s going on in the game. It’s about the people who make up the game. In a day where MLB does an awful job letting fans in and marketing their players this podcast gives fans a nice look at the players, writers and coaches who you see playing the game.
You learn about what they’re passionate about outside of the game: their families, charities, music and many other interesting topics. Their stories about being in the minors are always enjoyable as well.
I’ve always appreciated McHugh, but wasn’t sure how he’d do with this. He does a great job asking the questions fans want to hear and haven’t heard and has some great guests. The Doolittle, Bregman, McCullers and Passan interviews are great. Passan actually told a funny story about first meeting McHugh and plugged his book, which led me to buy it.
My only complaint, I wish Collin had time to do more podcasts. Well done Collin, I look forward to more episodes.

Best Sports Podcast!

I usually find myself struggling to make it to the 10 minute mark on most podcasts but the 12-6 has me wanting 10 more minutes every time. Even better that it’s a very intellectual and respected player.
