MLB Hall of Fame Part 1: Scotland's Claim to Cooperstown
Play • 47 min

A Scottish Podcast About Scotland!

This week it's time for a listen with Chris 'n Rory! Jonny has the week off,  so Chris has taken this as an opportunity to  discuss America's favourite pastime and how it was basically invented by the Scot's.

Ok, not really, but the MLB Hall of Fame & the museum in Cooperstown was.

We discuss the history and legends behind the Hall of Fame and the enterprising young Scotsman Alexander Cleland who decided to set it up despite knowing little to nothing about the sport.

We also discuss some of the MLB's most famous and successful  players born in Scotland (there are not that many).

Grab a popcorn and an overpriced beer as the TDN Lads take you out to the ball game.
