#37 - It was supposed to be Master's week, and we're all feeling a little down because we can't get our yearly fix of pimento cheese sandwiches and green jackets, thanks a lot coronavirus! So how about a little baseball? Oh wait, that's on hold too... But we have something that will cheer you up!
In this episode, we discuss why golfers are athletes, the parallels between golf and baseball, and why being "more than an athlete" is bigger than a hashtag. Special guest, NY Yankee's center fielder, Aaron Hicks.
