    The Last Episode

    After four years of baseball and other things, Rhea Butcher brings Three Swings to a close with an episode of gratitude and memories. Thank you to everyone who listened to the show, who supported the show, who bought a t-shirt, who went to a live show, who sent us a Rosin Bag question. We love you and we couldn't have made this show without you. Rhea also talks the highs and lows of the last week in baseball, including Javy Báez's baserunning wizardry, fan fights, and Jacob deGrom's historic ERA.

A great talk and a loving perspective on baseball.

An interesting and entertaining talk about all sorts of things, plus a caring perspective on what’s going on in baseball, not uncritical.

yoga.aha ,

interesting takes

Interesting takes but also kind of a fair weather fan for someone doing a baseball podcast.... But maybe that’s the point. Your take on consuming information is interesting and helpful.
