We talk about the 2022 Prospect League Playoffs and the final series between the Chillicothe Paints and Alton River Dragons. Also, we discuss our favorite baseball movies, and Quenton interviews… …Chief Krazy Horse???
We interview Lafayette Aviators’ outfielder, Brandon Daniels, and we talk about transitioning from 1B to OF, playing ball in the midwest vs. the south, the first thing he would do at Wrigley Field, the importance of faith in baseball and life, and… Roll Tide or War Eagle???
In this episode, we interview Jack Lang, player for the Lafayette Aviators during the 2021 and 2022 Prospect League seasons. We talk about interacting with the fans, the time he struck out a future Tennessee Volunteer(!), and what’s next after an injury has ended his summer baseball season.
We give our thoughts on the first half of the 2022 Prospect League season, and who we think will join the four teams who have already qualified for the playoffs. We also talk about our favorite place to sit in the ballpark for a game, and Quenton remarks on the difference in average attendance between the two Ohio-based Prospect League Teams.
TECHNICAL ISSUE Due to user error on Michael’s part, there was a bad echo in Ryan’s part of the audio. We cleaned it up about the best we could, but we will look at re-recording this episode to get a higher quality version. It sounds like we were interviewing him through the stadium PA microphone -phone -phone….
We talk with Ryan Kearney, broadcaster with the O’Fallon Hoots, about his first season with the team, the differences between gameday operations for baseball and hockey, and the best places to get food in The Windy City!
Also, we pass along our deepest sympathies on the passing of Springfield Lucky Horseshoes and Lakeland College sophomore pitcher Lucas Otto, who tragically lost his life in an auto accident during the season.
Who is making a late move to grab the first half title in their division, and an automatic spot in the playoffs? Also, we talk about league attendance, our favorite fan-participation games, and we give our best attempts at West Virginia Miners’ Coach Tim Epling’s trademark “Dang!” exclamation. Who does it better, Quenton or Michael??
We are halfway through the first half of the season already! Who is leading each division? Who will hold on to win the first half, and who will falter? Also, we talk about what our walkup music would be, and Quenton lets Michael know what he thinks of his 80s-inspired choice! (Here’s a hint: Quenton is NOT a fan!)
Two weeks in! We talk about which team is surprising us at the bottom of their division, and which players are having a great season so far (hint: it’s Nick Lallathin, Eddie Leon, and DJ Anderson!). We also consider if anyone can catch the Alton River Dragons, and give our thoughts on the possible team names for the Jackson, TN, team joining the Prospect League in 2023!
Episode 2 is posted! Quenton and I discuss the Paints’ opening night game against the Champion City Kings, and give our thoughts about the “Kings of the Wabash” in-season competition between the Lafayette Aviators and Terre Haute REX. Who else should have a trophy they compete for during the season?
