Happy Early Thanksgiving!
We've got a super packed show. We felt like, with so many people on the road for the holiday, we thought we'd provide some drive time fun talking with baseball fans and why they love the game. Before we go full Christmas music, of course.
Before we dive in for that, we're joined by Tom Reisenweber, sports writer for the Erie Times News joins us to talk about the news that the MLB is planning to contract the MiLB. The story is heating up now that there is a list of teams. We're excited he could join us. The list of possible contracted teams are at the bottom of this page. (Opening Chapter)
We're also joined by Don Orris to talk about his long love of the game and the great Roberto Clemente (including a few big moments he was there for.) Don't miss it!
We also want to thank the following for joining our 'Thankful for Baseball" section. Taking time out of their day to hop and talk some hard ball.
