Heart-pounding memories. Rarely told tales. Inside information.
Deeply personal and candid conversations like you’ve NEVER HEARD BEFORE. Your favorite stars from baseball and beyond take you on the rides of their lives. The moments their worlds changed forever. From the details of their first exposure to the Major Leagues, to the feelings behind the career milestones and life beyond the cheering. “Major League Beginnings” with the Player, the Agent and the Broadcaster, Mark Sweeney, Barry Axelrod and Mike Pomeranz.
If you think you can do better than the boys in blue you love to boo, wait until you hear the hard-edged perspective of our guest, long-time Major League umpire and Crew Chief, Ted Barrett. His resume reads like a Hollywood script. Umpire, boxer and...reverend.
Ted takes us behind the plate sharing his most memorable games including the playoffs, World Series and a record number of “perfectos!” Barrett’s account of handling the pressure to be perfect and the backlash when you are not, is raw, insightful and inspiring.
