Referring about the the baseball and the conversation that you're having with all the baseball players and stuff like that the money and stuff like that we're down in Florida and more opening where baseball for the kids and stuff like that all over and we're paid money and everything for them to play what's your thoughts on the baseball Major League Baseball players about where the kids are paying for the parents are paying for money for them to play and they just see what your thoughts are on that parents paying for for kids to play in Florida hello yeah we have well we're playing actually thanks for playing without a chat lines all really well which is yeah well I'm originally from Chicago and stuff like that I wasn't you experience at London's well I was just curious what your thoughts are when the season opens up and stuff like that he has because he he was a very fair I was a big fan of his when I was a little kid so I'm just wondering what your thoughts are not gonna have you hang up George I'm glad you checked in for your phone call well I mean first of all on the surface I think we can all agree that if if kids are interested in baseball the more the merrier are you you know you start to see kids play a lot more soccer you see kids are involved in other other sports and baseball is being left behind it is good that you have kids that are around grand kids are just kids in general they're interested in the game of baseball it's interesting you say Chet lemon is a god is no white socks that so apparently down there with you living in Florida that's great that's great to be able to go to support it that's so important for those for the livelihood of the sport I always feel that if baseball itself big league baseball I was not getting into communities are urban areas to try to grow the sport then it's up all its own parents it's on guardians at song us grown ups to be able to help grow the sport for the for baseball because you could see I'll use the NBA's example what all star weekend was here for our fourth one is here in Chicago at the United center all the stimulus the if you were everywhere they were everywhere every neighborhood they were sent out they were north there they were all out west they were in a lot of different areas where you wouldn't think NBA superstars past and present would be our I can't even tell you that there's every Chicago Bulls that would be if some areas that the NBA right arm but it's important to be able to help grow the sport on a grassroots level so important for that to happen so you're doing the right thing George because again if it's good to have all the old major leaguer and women out there that's helping out the kids because the sport because they need to continue to grow there's no doubt about that could you check the enjoyed pushing your phone call I'm John he's George three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six our phone we're going

it's it's a great point Devon and I put your phone call here's why it's a great point you go to games and the one thing that we have in common is we're there to see the same thing also going to a concert why are you there to see to see a concert you there because what you have in common is the person next to you is attracted to who's on stage and for baseball basketball football whatever it is we are trying to to whatever is on stage as a matter of a team we're trying to do the sport that's why we're there did reach being outside the atmosphere baseball that's true armed you are talking to complete strangers are or if there's some kind of conversation happening in your role about what you're seeing and that's what sports brings to the table the idea that you're coming together and you are therefore offer one common cause and that is to route to drink to eat how fun so you're so right about that three one two three three two ESP as our phone number Jason Wayne Carter on Facebook says I just miss it being on front April to September you'd literally half three days a week Wednesday Thursday and Saturday are where you can watch a game around the clock you can throw something in
