Don't forget you can join US online at freetalklive dot com we have a myriad of features. Not dischord anymore take. Crossing off our list of features, we will replace it with something. You just have to be patient we we knew on this for a while we knew it was coming I was just hoping discord would last until we got to the new thing, but it didn't that's okay. Meanwhile, you can join our email list, which is a good way to keep up to date with what's going on with free talk live. So one of the emails that I sent out most recently was how to extract your crypto currency from your discord. While it because there was a tip bought that we installed in there like a year ago or most of a year ago and people were sending tip money. He's back and forth bitcoin cash dash and you know Minero and all these different crypto currencies able to posit Minero. Maybe they don't have minero anyway they they're supposed to but it was always on and off thing it never worked when I attempted to do. It was a little different from the rest of the coins to total privacy coin. It's not based on Bitcoin MR announced better it's not different it's better I would say better it's totally private private every time every every way it's really it's pretty great and. So anyway, some people had balances on those those accounts, but now our server has been wiped out. So what does that mean for your tip money? Well, it's still there. So the good news is you can get it unless you yourself were banned from discordant. I have not heard that that has been the case and that is the case I mentioned the people behind the tea butts you can contact them and they will assist you maybe because I remember when we first started, we had some issue with depositing bitcoin cash or something, and we were able to get in touch with them and they helped us they did I don't know how that works if dischord bands your account though so. What I would suggest is if you still got an account discord, you can go in and you can get your crypto out at least as long as the tips still exists remember it's it's whoever the guy that program the baht spot right like. So if he just decides, he wants to leave and we warn people about this before was like, Hey, this is the fun thing but don't keep too much money in it because it might disappear it might be at a giant exit scam we don't know. But turns out our server got pulled. So the tip bots still there there's a tip bought server and gave all the instructions in my email. If you didn't get the email, the contents of it is right there on the front page of Freetalklive. Dot Com. If you've been wondering how to get your money out of the your tip crypto out.

Yeah though you You know you guys are talking about the yet kicked out discord where it is Kinda ties into that and I see. I do facebook don't post things all that kind of stuff also short. I saw a it was like a picture of words you know what does it mean but said? Go to Google top in a two digit number can say you know the new cases or something like that I can't remember exactly the wording. So. If Dhabi and foreign to me on Google and the it's hard shoot. It was four hundred new coronavirus cases in. Such county or whatever I just tried it. I just typed in seventy seven new cases and there's Alaska seventy seven new cases reported Monday. What's the point? Yeah. Cheap keep doing well, the the point is keep doing that and you know no matter what number you put in there it's going to be like seventy seven or whatever you new cases until the place. So anyway. I saw I was looking at my. Activities, he'd split reasons and I saw that there was some that I posted I got flagged as false news or something whatever I remember the terminology. As well, it is at your look at the thing you know salute an outside I remembered it right. So anyway, this is why wisest false news or whatever. and. It said because in the explanation was this has nothing to the coronavirus. Nothing no invaluable information about Ron. How it'd be crystal clear that those wars, the pictures, the picture of words and nowhere in their words. was there anything about growing virus just said type in a number? and New or new cases or something like that. Content that you shared as being of factually incorrect or whatever. So. Yeah. Exactly. So they banned you're sharing of the me. That's why I wasn't clear on. You're saying the M- you. was was flagged. Yeah it was slain. Correctly and I'll let you go on with that but it was just there was the whole purpose of the whole point of the whole thing was like that Dang thing didn't say anything about. Really interesting. Your point and thank you William for your call tonight. I'm glad were able to suss that out. Are you thank you for that? I was a little lost on on what exactly they had. They had banned. Thank you William the toll free number here is eight, hundred, fifty, five, four, fifty free. Don't facebook again for what for seven days for for hate speech Trans People of course. I. So your Self Hating tranny now.

But I I can still use facebook just fine. I can still post things. But I'm banned I. Don't understand what they're doing I think they broke their own banning system. So broken, even know it. Let's go to uncle Ted calling from Montana watching on our twitch feed. Go ahead uncle Ted. Hey you guys were talking about the great philosopher King Ted Kaczynski. Previously I wanted to touch base back on that where you guys were making it sound like you can avoid technology today how how do you avoid technology? I don't think either of US made that claim. Did you make that claim Aria that you could avoid it? No. I mean you can certainly minimizing you can disconnect from the digital world I may have missed. I'm poorly conveyed what I was trying to say but what I meant was that you can connect disconnect from the digital world you can disconnect from the political world you can. You know you can disconnect your phone you can disconnect your Internet connection I mean I did do some outreach booths at the local county fair I think the last one was probably like three or four years ago. But Anyway, I did I did it for several years and we did some bitcoin outreach towards the end of it and I actually did run into people who told me they've never been on the Internet. Wow. Yeah I mean. There's there's people who've never been on the Internet but that was kind of the point that that said was making that you you can't escape technology nowadays. One of the things you've point out his intersection I mean what's happening action? You have a light that runs on technology that tells you whether you're allowed to move forward or turn left or you have to stay there and there's usually a. Technology is technology is prepping two sticks together and making fire. Sure. It's largely necessary for huma survive the human applying their brain power to various. Sources to solve problems sure and you're right I you know Ted if you. If you leave your house, you're likely going to encounter some form of technology right? Like even if all you're leaving it living in as a shack out in the woods with an outhouse. Technology. It's not it's not considered technology today. You're right at one time it was new tax. So just cuts it off. So take tickets armature cuts it off at a different point than the amish do right well, the funny thing is really cut it off. He would use buses and planes go deliver bombs about his message of Industrial Society and its future and how technology is inflaming assault, which he's right about. But it's kind of ironic he can't even void using technology that he hates so much good point uncle Ted. Thanks for sharing that anything else. You WanNa throw out there tonight. That's it.

This is America's sports talk show sports byline. Here's Ron Bar. Yogurt, black joins us on sports byline one of the almost forgotten very important parts of sports history and particularly baseball history is the Negro Leagues and Gilbert is a part of that history of baseball and the Negro Leagues he grew up in New York City until he was sixteen, he lived two and a half blocks from the Polo grounds and inside of Yankee. Stadium. Gilbert. Was the first game you ever saw. I don't remember the first game, but it was around nineteen, forty, three, forty, four, I snuck into the Polo grounds and saw the giants played in the Polo. Grounds at that time from what Willie mays his told me that was a very big ballpark wasn't right if I remember correctly as Centerfield was five Oh, one had back when Willie mays came they've moved to home plate up and made its Four eighty something. But as I remember, it has a kid it was five one to straight away Centerfield the golden era of baseball in my mind and correct me if you think I'm wrong was New York back in the fifties because you did have three teams dodgers, you had the giants and the had the Yankees what was it like as a baseball town? What was that like New York? It was A. Bomb it was. It was great. I used to love to go to the ground and watch the. Giants and the dodgers and one of the memorable things I can remember the giants and the dodgers playing. The dodgers got the bases loaded in the first and and go hodges came up and he hit a ball so hard and so far over the roof and let feel I don't know where it landed. In Grand Slam. Let me ask you about a game in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, one you were there for probably one of the most important games played and also standing outcome it was bobby. Thompson. Tell me about that game because you were there. For Bobby talks ahead the time that I was Gonna Polo grounds was my favorite faults of that was way before Willie mays. So I I I love Bobby. Charlton he was my hero. And, tell me about that game because you were there. Well, there's not a lot to. Remember, you know when? When when you're young I was here in a situation like that. Of course it was a lot of pattern is talking about the home run, right? Yeah. A lot of a lot of excitement and everything else you know. and. The giants weren't expected to win thirteen half games. Let's say June sometime in June and the giants came back and won it. That broke a lot of lot of dodger fans, hearts. Yeah. Bobby Thomson's home run. It's called the hit The shot heard around the world to clinch the teams in the league title over the rival Brooklyn Dodgers and the rivalries because they had to national league teams But for the American League Yankees rivalries primarily, Boston wasn't it one about that rivalry well, I wasn't that much answer the Yankees. Onto, this to stay in a few times, I was a kid I didn't have a A. Quarter to buy a ticket, how is mostly into Polo grounds ranking sneaked over left field. And into the stands, I had a friend of mine of my mother's owned a bar. His name was Percy Harris, and he had season tickets to Yankee stadium season tickets, and once in a while he give me a ticket to go to the stadium. And I'd have a chance to see mantle and Dimaggio and. Then, some of those people what were the seeds of your love for baseball well has a kid growing up in. New York there wasn't that much excitement. I tell people I was a juvenile delinquent my father was in the south. Pacific. And New Guinea. and My mother worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. So I really. I really ran wild. You know going to sneak into the all around at ten or eleven years old. That was a pretty big that was a pretty big feet it out. Four. Kids that young but That's what I did and I love baseball I love I love the the giants. Still Rig Major Jack Lucky Will Masha Walker Cooper saw on himself fourth. I was really a long a national league fan because that's what I was exposed to at sixteen. You moved up to Stamford Connecticut and you're pretty good. You're pretty good pitcher in high school you ended up with a record of fifteen one. Did you not? That's right? Yeah, and they had two teams they had two teams up there. One was called the eagles, the other Stanford black the Yankees tell me about them. Or Eagles a man's chain when I moved up to Stanford, I didn't really know anyone and I live I live not too far from Woodside Park and the Eagles used to practice there and also the the Stafford Yankees but to Stamford Yankees were more or less young kids and the eagles were men and the Yankees wanted me to play with them but I rather play with them. And that's what I did. You decided to play with them in the fall of one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty three, and you started to play in some big money games. Now give me the definition of big money games well. When I grew up in Stafford the baseball teams had to come up with the best ball players because the games that we that were books they were book and they were bet on different different people with back different teams and they might that's two, hundred, three, hundred, five, hundred on the game. And so we have. Our teams had to be pretty darn good at. All to To win. The biggest thing that happened to me I played against team new. Haven Connecticut call the Indians and. We've got about five or seven hundred dollars on the game. The the book is on the game. And I want nothing and the Indians came to me because they were playing. The Milwaukee. Braves Farm Club has a couple of weeks. And they sent a couple of players now from New Haven Stanford. To See if I were pitch for. My Mother didn't want me to dull because I was in high school. This is my junior year. So but they we'd bickering back and forth and I dating my mother in any thicker back and forth. One of the guys. So what about this changes name? So they changed my name Kenny. Heart. That fits against the Milwaukee Braves funk look and I beat him. And that was how I signed with the braves. That was A. Big Deal. Yeah in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, four, you attended the professional baseball tryout camp with mock debriefs and the very next day. You were contacted and offered a major league contact contract and after attending spring training the following year you were shipped to the Minor League team in West Palm Beach Florida. But later on released, what was that like when you were shipped down there with a major league farm team Major League Baseball farm team. What was that like what? When the braeside they signed me to a contract to go to court bet I wasn't expected to go down south when I got down south, it was altogether different and the manager's name was bill staticky. And he He used to catch for the Yankees. But anyway there was there was me another guy named Jim proctor or black who breaks down there then he got rid of our as quick as he could because he said it was too much trouble running around finding somewhere for us to he. And somewhere for us to sleep. So he just got rid of US and that goes into my One of the things I talk about when I go to speak and that's fake tryouts. We had a lot of fake trials back then would whoever? Teams say they're going to try certain ballplayer a not not sign him. I don't know whether you're interested in that or not. I got to say about that. Just out in ninety seconds tell me about that. Well. Jackie Robinson try it out for a major league club. The Boston red. SOx In nineteen, forty, six, I think it was him an Sam, Jeff. Throw. And they one of these executives from the Boston Red Sox get them off the field. We don't want him. And you know what happened with Jackie Robinson. And if you remember saying Jeff though in nineteen, fifty, one was repeated a year vast elite. Also in nineteen fifty. Amazed tried out for the Boston Red Sox and he wasn't good enough. And you know what happened with Willie Mays There was a rule that existed was there not that when they did have black come into major league baseball, you were limited only two per team. There was supposed to be yeah of course, Josh Polk data as the dodgers broke that record and also the giants. The giants came up with three Hey Thompson. Money urban and Willie. mays. And the dodgers came up with a of course Don newcombe Jackie Robinson Roy Campanella. Dan bankhead. But that was that was like an unwritten rule. You weren't supposed to have no more than two players to black players. Tell me how black baseball players who loved the game dealt with that type of discrimination where they could not show their wares as good as they were how did they internalize it? How did they express themselves? What would me how play with the Indianapolis Clowns and I Love Baseball And the cloud off the chance to play. Without Without a lot of Without a lot of problems shortstop. I, played third base kids I played every day and that's what I liked about baseball. And and So that's more or less.

This is America's sports. Talk Show Sports, Byline USA. Here's Ron Bar. Gilbert black has joined us here on sports byline. USA. He played in the Negro Leagues and we're remembering his career and his life as well. There were certain towns and states you couldn't play and in their stories that I know that you have told before but share with us what the experience was like for an African. American baseball player. But I wanted on spring training with the braves. All the black players slept on. One of the buildings and the white players slept inside. and. That was that was against the state law, the blacks and the whites good. Not Sleep in the same same situation. So I mean it was my first my first taste of being in the south after I got off the train and got to. Milwaukee training camp. Separated us from Blue Light. You tell a story about playing in Mississippi in nineteen, fifty six, which was a time when black ballplayers still eight segregated tables and Mississippi, and also throughout the rest of the deep South tell me more about that. Or One of the stories I tell us the Mississippi and nineteen, fifty six I was playing with clouds. And I'm light skinned guy. And I'm playing feel. Just why I'm playing center field then that night I don't vote but anyway. Assurance call up on the field. And Stop the ballgame. Sheriff got out of the CAR. Walk past a picture walk past the shortstop they walked out to center field. Looked at me, they have my hat pulled down over my eyes and there was a night Jay the fact that Back. Then, the lights in the fields weren't really that bright. So. What am I looked over shipping said all right. Went back and got in the car. And what happened somebody would call the sheriff's department. Open. told me it was a white boy out there playing with black boys. And that was we legal? I know that the Indianapolis clowns were special in the Negro Leagues were they equal in a sense to what New York Yankees were in? Baseball Major League baseball at that time. Were they considered the same way in the Negro Leagues as the Yankees were in major league baseball. I during the time I played I played at the end of The end of the week I didn't say during during the heyday. and. I talked to me players because he had a guy on the team Johnny Williams who played in played in the Negro. League. And he was he was a bus driver and the chaperone. And I used to ask him a lot of questions about it. And he told me. That if They're in a barnstorming after the season was over the white teams we get together stand usual in the rest of them. And the black ball players they get together and they play each other barnstorming around the country. And once he would not outshine the other one. No matter no matter you know who was playing. The black team had just as much of a on the white theme as the white team out on the by two. How did the players on the Indianapolis clowns? Travel. But we had a bus. Hey. We had a bus and. The bus was somewhat segregated in a sense not by not by Kulla. But. The higher echelon of players sat on the right side. And the SORTA. Lesser players like the via offs that sat on the. Left side. Usually with to occupy pensive seat. I was lucky Al's on the right side with one occupation. What was he can? Be Bob. And so on and so forth what was the pay like for for the players that played with the Indianapolis clowns? Made two hundred and fifty dollars a month. I'll ask game we played in Washington DC in nineteen, fifty six. Has the players were supposed to share gate. And we would. We would share the gate and get the percentage. Of the gate. I left what forty some dollars I think was forty two dollars. By the time I got home to Stanford Connecticut. I was dead broke. The. Pan Fan band to get home. So didn't make that much money but. We Love Baseball and we you know kept playing. There was to rules on the clowns and that was on the field and don't miss the bus I love the quote I've got from you. You got four dollars a day for meal money one guy with by the mustard another would by baloney and another the bread and that's how we eight. Yeah inside cups of Cups. Plates. So that's what that's how many times what was the atmosphere like with the crowds when you guys came to town to play a game or any Negro League team faced each other While we were, we were compatible to maybe Barnum and Bailey or on dollar globetrotters. When that bus pulled into town. People just went nuts. The bus help fill up the ballpark when they the votes pulled in and have the Indianapolis. Clowns it on the side of it. We get off the bus a knicks with the people at. The ballgames, the Fox filled up. I know you said one time. All you're thinking about is playing baseball. You get on the bus you go to sleep when you wake up, you're in another town people from everywhere coming over to you like it's the circus that was the best part. What would the stadiums like that you played in? Well some of them are just like trump tower. Other ones could be like Major League ballparks. You know we trade in Jacksonville they had a beautiful ballparks, their Memphis Outta. Beautiful Ballpark. Replay Griffin state in watch, which is a major league ballpark. Buying Emmy Stadium. I know in the heyday of the major leagues. You know you guys would play games and it wasn't just a black audience, a black crowd that was there. It was mixed was not. There was very excess. Now. When I was with the braves and we played in West Palm Beach, I went up I went out and met people in town until I was a baseball player they ask but you know they did know me so. What I went to eat this and that and they found out the baseball player wanted to come to the game. When they came to the game they have the set up right seal. They couldn't sit in the grandstand the other white people. That was another. Another thing and this is plan minor league baseball. You mentioned that you knew Jackie Robinson you occasionally played pool with his son Jackie Robinson junior tell me about the first time you met him. Or Jackie Robinson's son Jackie Junior. You don't hear much talk about him. he died he died on the car accident on the America Parkway. Just just north of Stamford. By I play pretty good pool and then they season I played a lot of Pool Jackie Robinson Junior love fool. And I've been over his house I met his. Mother. don't just template in my head right now wondering and sister. Play pool hung around Jackie routes basically. He wasn't there most of the time but I have none of it to the elks club and Stanford tell me a little bit about Jackie from the standpoint about how other Negro, league. Baseball players felt about him being the first player and what it might have meant for them and also others that WanNa play League Baseball. Of course is this is a little before our time. That's the stories that I heard. That he was not the best ball player. He might have been best suited to do what he did because he was a he was officer in the service he went to college man. And he could. He could maintain itself. he wasn't the best that sailor and he wasn't the best center and the Big really but. They were you know fine ball player. When he got the majors he just terrorized the majors with his base rather. And that's one of the things big release famous for is based on. One of the things that happened to you Gil was the fact that you had a collision and you broke your wrist, tell me that story. Here to to Coleman who later play with the mets. And the phillies. were, we were in I guess it was June eleventh nineteen, fifty six islands playing third base. went in I went into faith basis Joe Henry. And somebody hit a pop up. I quoted in the coach's box of to ran right into the and broke my wrists. And that's why when I decided that makes you not to go back. I know you've been very outspoken and questioning why young people don't play baseball. We don't see a lot of African Americans playing baseball like we used to, and your quote was the greatest time to practice his after the season is over in the fall you're still in shape and the weather is still good. I would have given anything to practice in a nice park with evenly manicured. feels like Rogers Park in Danbury. Whenever I see the fields empty over here, tears come to my is why do think that black athletes do not gravitate to baseball as they used to? Order they. Everything is everything thing in society has changed but with a With the cell phones, computers, and so on and so forth everything has changed. And A. Basketball. You know it's it's instant reward. You get basketball you. You got a lot of instant rewards baseball, the patient game. And kids today don't have that much patience. I would say. I do watch a little baseball and I'm really impressed with some of the black ball players that I see. They remind me of some of the guys I used to play with. It's a pleasure to watch him play.

Sports Byline USA the hall of Famer and also the homerun king who had seven hundred and fifty five home runs and back on. April Eighth Nineteen, seventy four, he broke Babe Ruth's all time home run record of seven hundred and fourteen good evening. Nice to have you back here on sports byline. Loose. Talk a little bit first about your career twenty three years in the majors. When you reflect back, what type of perspective do you put on your baseball career I think was I was satisfied with it. You know I don't think that I look back at my career and can find fault with it. You know I did just about everything I wanted to accomplish all of my goals and so I I feel like it was mission will accomplish. Did you ever think back when you were a kid growing up that you would do what you were able to do I mean, what was the dream of Hank Aaron when he was a kid? I didn't think about it at all. You know all I wanted to do back then of course, and I was just talking to somebody about it was to try to get it in five years and that would have been. I. Would have been invested in pension fund and that's mostly what ballplayers thought about. You know you didn't think in terms of plane twenty, twenty some years like I did you know but I'm glad that I did I think one thing that fans don't realize hank is that Mobile Alabama turned out an awful lot of good baseball players. It seemed like it was the breeding ground for great players wasn't it? The right about that run we had a we had at one time. I think that was a minute eight or nine major league players that was playing in the big leagues you know and they were all good in fact Billy Williams mccovey. They. All went into the hall of fame. So you know you're talking about Myself Billy William mccovey. Satchel, all the hall of fame. So you know mobile have anything to be. Ashamed of I. Think we turn loose our share of athletes. What was your first exposure to Baseball Hang I don't know I think my face is supposed to baseball was just baseball itself would this planning the Negro League I played softball in high school but never played baseball. So I started playing actually start playing baseball when I was. In the Negro American League. When I think back and I've talked with Willie mays about the Negro Leagues House special that time was what was the cohesiveness? What was the general philosophy of the players that played in the Negro Leagues? Fake run I think that we felt like if we could be successful playing Negra league that we could probably play in the major leagues. I think all of us basically felt that way because. Usually. The players that especially you're young player was playing against players who? Had played a little bit longer than you had. they had been in some of them had been in a minor league some of them have experienced playing against Great Negro League players. So we all felt like. If, we can have a good year good season that you had chance to play in the in the major leagues I was interested in a quote from President. Clinton. When you were being honored, he said from mobile to Milwaukee to Atlanta through segregated south Hank Aaron move through a changing America and he changed the minds and hearts of Americans I'm sure there was a lot of times in those early days. When you wondered if those hearts or minds were ever going to be changed well. No I didn't I think I always felt like that will hope always felt like you just keep doing your job that somewhere he was going to take somebody's mind and somebody's sold and. Somebody was going to be wise enough to realize. The only thing that you wanted to do was to have a chance to play baseball did the segregation and the attitude of America that time fuel the passion for black athletes to play the sport a little bit harder I know that the Jackie Robinson wants in a book that I read talked about how he channeled his anger. Well. I don't know whether we were angry at particular thing. I think that we knew that it was given the opportunity. That we had to take advantage of it because there were only a few of us. And we knew that if we fail that, it was going to fall upon the players that was coming behind us. So we felt like we wanted to play. We didn't have time. He angrily hit them to just reflect on what we needed to do and how we were going about doing it over the years and talking to you and meeting New Year's one of the most unassuming people that I've ever met your so graceful and the way you move and I wondered as I thought about it if it. was difficult for you to deal with the slings and arrows that you had to deal with especially during the home run breaking and and everything. But then all of a sudden I thought to myself here's a man that's quiet and is passionate and and I think that maybe that was somewhat protective that that may have helped you a little bit. Can you give me some insight to that Hank? Right Right I. Think the most important thing was the fact that in spite of all of the things that I had to go through I think I, kind of kept. Things in perspective you know I I knew that I had a job to do, and if I had not been successful than I would've I would've fell in the hands of the people who wanted me to fail. I was not about to let that happen I kept being in perspective I, Say I got to continue to do as well as I can do and deplete this game the only way that I know how a fellow hall of Famer Joe Morgan, told me that when he broke into professional baseball, he was assigned to Durham with the Durham Bulls and being a youngster from California when he got there in the first game, he saw. The black people on one section of the stadium and he said I can't handle this and he was going to call his dad and tell him he was quitting baseball but he said he knew his dad would not let him do that and be angry with him in the early days of your career. In. Major League baseball were there any time where you thought you were just not going to continue with this game that it wasn't gonNA work out for Hank Aaron What time when I felt that way but it was not because of the fact that I've looked into standing. So segregated people, I mean stands being segregated I was not that was not in it was just that I was lonesome. I wanted to go home to my Mama. Mama Board. So I that's what I. That's how I felt you know. Other than that right I don't think there was any other time that wanted to quit. What was the source of power and success as a home run hitter I think making direct contact making good contact and being able to to hit the ball squarely You know I I don't think that you need to be two hundred and fifty pounds You know if you if you can recall you know Freddie part tack who played with the Kansas City royals for a long time to hit a ball as long as as far as anybody and you. He was what he the five five and he weighed one hundred and eight, hundred, eighteen pounds. You know he was very small you know so it really. That's the one good thing about baseball is that you can see someone six in a ball on the end of the bat inevitable the MVP you can see them one five feet as as as Pontiac in and hit a ball twenty rules into the Stan you start wondering how can one guy be so big hit the ball. So saw how can one guy be so small and get the ball fuck It just a matter of making contact hitting the ball square. If a ball is thrown ninety miles an hour and you get good and he didn't WanNa fat part of the bat if you hit it right now tennis going to. Have a chance to guate- ballparks one of the things. Henry. That I don't believe you've been given enough credit for is the fact that a lot of people think of homerun hitters as swingers you had a career batting average of three zero five. That is not a free swinger that is somebody that is disciplined and knows the art of hitting how did that come? About well, I don't know run it just just a matter of fact, I always felt lacking in fact I've talked about this the other day the most important thing was to make contact. If you make contact, you got a chance to do a lot of things but was just it was always that easy I mean did you just simplify it? That much wasn't he? Wasn't he was just a matter of. Before I think that I was like most ball good ballplayer that's kept things in perspective I focus on what I had to do. The other thing I would assume and correct me if I'm wrong with this assumption and Tony Gwynn and I were talking batting one time he says the great hitters, the great hitters whether they be power hitters are single hitters is is that they don't try to do something with the ball. They can't do that. They let the ball, it's on the outside part of the plate they try to go the other way. Were you that way as well? Yes. Yes. In fact, I. taught myself how to be? When I came up I didn't notice strike zone very well, and then the last ten years I said last ten twelve years I knew the strike zone I feel comfortable in what I was doing. I knew I was going to swing a ball inside outside of know what part of the plate I wanted to swing it. And He's absolutely right. You kinda you try to give up what you can't do try to vast what you can do one of the things that I think you probably are especially proud of, but rarely do people talk about is you won three gold gloves and I've talked to a lot of ball players that say you know of all the things that I did winning a gold glove means the most to me was that the same way with you hang all of those things Ron. Winning the gold glove and also winning in bed title you know because you know most people when you talk about a my career and what it meant and they said, what did he do? 'cause he hit a lot of home runs you know they're not going to say he went to bed Thailand I to say he won a gold glove the not going to say he wanted to run by entitled only. Concentrate on the home run. So quite naturally, you feel good about those other thing because that's what makes you complete ballplayer. Let's talk about the season before one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three. Tell me what that was like as you were nearing the record. Well, it was It was a tough season. And the reason that was so tough is because. I guess at one point, it's best is part of the season everybody anticipated that I was going to break had a chance to break the record. And of course, like everything you know newspaper people started coveting coming upon you know actually all kinds of question some was good. Some was bad. Some had some substance of any. and that was no privacy. You know what I mean by kids was caught up in a bubble. hours in a bubble and I wasn't used to that and I refuse my children get involved in things like that. But but. I knew that I had I was coming upon something that nobody else had ever done in sport. And I knew that it was going to cause some trouble. So I was preparing myself I said I they come at me like they at Roger Marissa I was GonNa try to handle it the best a little bit better than Roger. Did you know but You know I ended the season with seven hundred eighteen home runs. and. Everybody's thought say, Hey, you know what are you going to do you go in hibernation I said I'm GonNa live my life to we always if you know, go to go and enjoy myself. And of course that when I went and got married and so. That's what happened. You know it was a tough year but after that, it was all since the game is so mental and you were getting death threats and you talk in the book about the death threats, you got some of the angry confrontations with people that did not want you to break a white man's record. Did that play on that mental aspect of the game for you? Well a little bit. Yes. But I, you know I I look back on it and I said, you know that was a learning experience from you know no matter how were no matter what you do in this world? Matter, what you're trying to accomplish sometime, people don't realize that that You only a human being. And you do everything that you can. to try to do what is best for you. And what you could do what best for your team? Afterwards you just said, you were glad it was over with You must have been really relieved I was glad it was always yes. Because I, not only for myself. But I was glad for my teammates and I was glad for my mother and father you know especially those two because. You know they were coming back and forth and it was at the age where they needed to be stationed there. You know they didn't need to be running back. To Atlanta back to mobile so they need to be with. Stay where they were just watch a baseball game. Hank after it was over with and you set that record how did life change for Hank Aaron? I mean, did you get the type of accolades that somebody has broken a major home run record deserve to have or what was it like in those years after the home run record that as much as you think i. should have you know really I don't think that You know that was no airplanes available for me. That will no huge endorsements that I made. Outside one big Cup becoming. I made a lot of little money, but that was no big endorsements from me. You know it was just something that was quality broken and the end of it all and I I would say in a year's time you know he was out of the news when you reflect back on what you were able to do in setting this record I. Know There's going to be things that means something to other people but the Hank Aaron and a personal sense what are you most proud of in doing this? But I guess. I i. Am Proud of the fact that records that I mentioned before made to be broken. And no matter what record to be. People may say, well, nothing nothing you nobody can touch record. I'm proud of the fact that Moment I people that if given the opportunity is that anybody in erected can be broken. Down and get together. What are you all talk about over that night we've talked about anything but. We do we talk about anything air was was very professional about this he. He was not one of the guys that I hit a lot of home runs off it. I just got a look pitch to hit out a ballpark. And I apple to get it up in the end I hit the ball when I take a look at players and I know there was a get together when they did honor you and they had people like Ernie banks and frank. Robinson. Lou Brock, and Reggie Jackson when you look at those types of players, what was the common denominator of all that greatness? What is it? That great players always do? Would you great players that you see no matter whether it's it's the feel of athletic. So whatever it may be you know when you see great people come together. They have one thing if you notice that they all have one thing in common. They always able to tell you that what day what time? When did they happen to be able to make history and that's what happened you reset greatness ANC when you play the game and when you left the game and today, you brought one thing that five letter word class to everything that you did on behalf of all S-, baseball fans, sports, fans, I WANNA.

This is America's sports talk show sports byline USA. Here's Ron Bar. Bush joins us on sports byline former second baseman who played eight seasons for the Yankees Blue Jays Marlins, and he WANNA World Series Championship with the Yankees and Nineteen Ninety, eight homer you grew up in east Saint Louis Illinois, and I have talked to some people that grew up in that area. Tell me what it was like and what it was like for you in particular. for me Ron Man You can probably imagine being tough being tough guy that I am gave those sheets that reputation I'm just kidding I was a mama's boy. You know I I was able to avoid a lot of the negativity by just playing sports and hitting the books. I once asked Jackie joyner-kersee because she up there as well and I asked her I said what was it like there and she said, well, I only tell you that I wasn't afraid of the police because I knew my parents would treat me rougher than what the police would ever. And you mentioned about the tough streets of there and it certainly is how did you navigate them? What kept you out of trouble? you know like I was saying about sports and hitting a book. You know the most amazing thing about the world today was that Many are you just didn't give law enforcement? Any back talk it was like it was literally They were that's protecting serve. So I even though we were in a tough environment, I always felt safe because we did have law enforcement on our side. So as long as you didn't go to the negative stuff, you would I mean you okay really I mean I i. didn't know I didn't realize how difficult my upbringing was until I moved into the suburbs and say man this how people? You are not only an outstanding baseball player, but you're also are pretty darn good football player too because you're on a program led by Bob Shannon and of course, the two years that most people still talk about are the eighty nine and ninety season. You were kind of the Go-to guy tell me a little bit about Bob and tell me about that that that that program that he had their. You know. Wonderful Program Miss Shannon coach Shannon outstanding individual It was truly a blessing for me. It prepared me for the game of baseball as a highest level because the competition that you had to get through to break that line up and some play on that team you know you you have to be tough and. Be a be able to compete. You know taught me how to compete and I mean I'm grateful for plan them to coach Shannon for you recruited to play football or baseball at the University of Missouri. Football Okay and why did you decide to to go ahead and go the baseball round? I have more offers than football but My mom was you know was like son You Know Baseball's what you love spent. Five. Ten hundred and fifty pounds soaking wet. She was like just go play baseball has some fun and you know mess violent sport. So it was totally advice them my mom's in I want to run something by you listen to these cities you played in Charleston South Carolina Waterloo Iowa Rancho Cucamonga California Wichita Memphis Columbus in Las Vegas, and we'll talk about Brisbane Australia a little bit later on but I mean you could have done a travel show. We will cool about that of this. I got to experience some different cities and states. So for me, the minor league, the luxury because every year, it got better you know growing up beneath Saint Louis I say helped me in that miley process because that every staged everything got better. I got more mature about the the maturation baseball maturation process. stadiums got bigger and better you know. So I truly enjoy my mind leak experience. You know it's interesting. You say that because I've always found the minor league experiences, I travel around the country and have a chance to take in minor league games. There's an lure there. There's a mystique there helped me explain it to people what that allure net mystique. League Baseball. You know low wages tough travel. Tough competition, you know You know someone might hear that and go man you know that's not something I really want to be a part of, but I tell you what like I said growing up in East San Luis that experience if you got better from the wages got better travel got better the. So for me, it was a great A. Great Start for me when I got into the game baseball and football. Growing up in Saint Louis and playing football taught me how to compete. So I had all the bases covered. Tell me a little bit about your favorite stories being down in the minor leagues because everybody thinks about Bull Durham and you know thinks of maintenance minor league baseball that way. You know. The, the the one thing every minor leaguer, and probably even college athletes relate to is that you know you get an apartment with three or four guys and you know you get up to meet several young men from other states and have to hit you know their horror stories and How they grew up in high school football programs You know those are the things that I remember the most But you know the one thing I can say and it's true even today even with myself and that is the players that watch as a young kid. Eventually some of become your coaches in the. MIAMI. And I thought that was pretty cool. You know I got an opportunity to You know get coached by Tim flannery Garry Templeton i. mean just guys that I grew up watching you know in the Seventies and eighties homer does mentoring still go as far today as it used to be I've had these talks with Tommy Lasorda and others because as you know, the minor league organizations back when you were playing there and even before each team had kind of a personality and it really permeated right throughout the entire organization and they're all was always a player like a crash Davis that we saw in the movie bull Durham that would take a player underneath their wing and everything does that still happen today You know. I'll be honest. I cannot remember that being the case You know if the if it was, it was probably when I got older you know a very unfortunate. Example would be Mike Shoppers. the dodger player that was killed in the one car accident. When this cost over when I got up to AAA out, you know extremely close to get into the major leagues and as you can imagine I started coming unglued a little bit because I'm getting so close and I remember Straw Persson pulling me to the side who had been in the major leagues and you know came down to the minor leagues, put me to the side and tell me young man you pressing black. So I had you know I can say that would be my crash. Davis but he also played in the major leagues though so it was kind of more experienced players Level that will come down and get some AAA experienced instructing to back to the major leagues. So but as far as the interim I there's so much money in baseball even at the Miami level now it's hard to have the players being leaders. Nowadays, you have to explain to me how you ended up in Australia playing minor league ball down there. There's got to be a good story associated with this homer. You. It's funny. You say that because I got a call from the San Diego padres and they had a working relationship in the winter for a handful of players may they called me and said hey like? To get some more at that. And took him up on the offer and had a fantastic time. What was baseball like down there You know it was new. It was different than we plan on like Feels like like a it was made for like tricking on the fairgrounds and stuff like that So you know the venues were not. You know baseball this you know like in the states but. The competition was was good because you steal you had every team had believe three or four imports thirteen. So. Most of us that Those players spoke kitchen so the pitching was not suffered down there than the overall competition I would assume because any country in which they play a sport, which you don't wear helmets I'm talking about rugby. They would find baseball kind of boring and mild. Oh, absolutely, as you can imagine, it was. A, it was a very aggressive style baseball. No but you know I loved it was a great experience where. Let me ask you about when you were traded to the Yankees in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight you know being treated maybe to Milwaukee. Traded to Atlanta. That's one thing. But to be traded to the New York. Yankees with its reputation and its history of success. How did you think about that when it happened? You know the Yankees had just won the world series in ninety six and I'll trade over ninety seven. So they You know I knew of them but I grew up a cardinal fan. And I you know I knew Yankees the Yankees had a lot of history but I didn't know to what degree. But when I got there, it was like one of those deals like I was extremely naive because when I got there, it was like man I'm along you know this is you know I'm just going to another team they just grooming me to be there everyday second baseman. But when I got there and you know you step out of the Dugout this cycle hotel. This be Yankee Stadium you know the Mecca of all ballpark. So I couldn't woke up you know once I got there and got the experience You know. To jeeter. you know popularity and stock layer they had. I knew I was in a very special place. Immediately, after I got. My point out to people homer was traded in ninety seven. As he said, he's kind of shuttled back and forth between New York and Columbus but it was in ninety eight that you really made your your impact their hold on just a second homer homer bushes with us former second baseman who played eight seasons for the Yankees the Blue Jays in the Marlins, he won a World Series Championship with the Yankees Ninety eight we continue across the country and around the world we've got John Sports byline.

This is America's sports talk show sports byline USA. Here's Ron Bar. Homer Bush is with us here on sports byline. As you mentioned you were with the Yankees in nineteen ninety eight you made the major league roster and report of the Teams Nineteen Ninety Eight World Series Championship team and and during the regular season you batted three eighty stolen about six basis as well. Tell me about that season for the Yankees because as you pointed out, they had already won championships what was the catalyst of their success in the nineties You know I think if you look at our record and you look at the championship, you know you'd probably think that man we We're kind of like the the Golden State Warriors of today right? Like you just went in every day and it seems pretty easy but I mean he was the competition was I mean it was really like a blue collar atmosphere even though we were, you know probably one you know where the greatest franchise no baseball I mean if you look if you those numbers no one you know didn't really leave a team like you know with forty fifty home runs up to twenty. Maybe thirty was was the most but we had a lot of guys that had that contributed with a high RBI is You know we had Greek pitching staff. So I mean we were grinding every day and It was It was fun to be a part of because you felt like each and every day your contribution was needed. No matter You know who you were and you know how much you made during that season you know as well as I do that the dynamic in New York and especially with the Yankees is probably different than any other team in Major League Baseball and you had an owner George Steinbrenner you also had expectations that went along with it but really the steadying factor in that organization and that team was Joe Torre was not. Absolutely you know I. Always tell the story about story that You know it was like a father. That had twenty five kids you know the kids wanted to do well for even though we were his players because he had a folly Stinger type style He let you play. You know he didn't try to control the Game I. mean he literally Like put me on my own and I was a routine. You know he wasn't really big on Ricky's but I had gained his trust and you know when you do It's a lot easier to go out and perform for a manager like that as opposed to someone who's trying to size you up based on how they played doing. Thing I've found with all championship teams that the leadership in the clubhouse is really the key and I'll go back to the forty niners late Bill Walsh was a good friend of mine and and I watched that team from nineteen seventy seven till they went on through the eighties and into the nineties with their success and when bill was the coach there I'm always found it wasn't so much bill bill was the captain on. The deck of the ship and the guys were happy to know that. But if a rookie came in or player came in from another organization and didn't do it the forty nine away, it was running lot that went up to him. It was Roger Craig that went up to him and said, hey we don't do it that way here. Was it the same way with the Yankees and who were the leaders in that clubhouse? You know we didn't really have in your face type leader but. It was so much competition that you were put on notice because you just didn't play. You know a great example would be Do you remember saying Spencer had a great run right? Towards the end of the season well. Just imagine we had one ninety something games at that point. I mean we're playing extremely well, but Joe Torry just had this feeling that mission this young chick can help. Expensive came once or twice during the year, but he didn't have that big of an impact. You know it just goes to show you even though it all veteran players you had to perform so you literally performed or You didn't play. One of the things that I've always appreciated about sports are the rivalries and I don't think there's a better rivalry in baseball than what you find between Boston and new. York. Did you understand what that rivalry was was like and what was it like when you were actually involved with? You know. Of course I thought I knew. I didn't know. I didn't know but because it was so big and I have to tell you. Experienced in that whole wherever we deal with Boston. I mean does nothing like it? Ever when it comes to competition. Because I went on to play for the Jays and when we didn't play Boston it what we didn't have that. You. Know that's just wasn't A game yeah. Didn't have the electricity that a Yankee Boston game. And I'm telling you I'm talking like. the type of immaturity where it's ten to one and guys still taking one out at second base I mean that is what I'm talking about when you know Utah Yankees and Boston Riffa and also the Green Monster I was a sportscaster in Boston for a while and I remember the first time. I, ever walked into fenway and I I was dumbfounded. I couldn't believe it. Now I wasn't a baseball guy but it even affected me how about for you as a player the first time you went into fenway. Oh man that wall school by swing up so bad. Maybe come. Hither he needed. And I'll tell you right now they do not grow you inside. But yeah I mean it's like me it's right there. I can hit the walls you know two hundred and seventy five. See you know so no, but it's a it's experience out. Don't forget being in that Ballpark that long walk from the Dugout to the baddest box and You know we strike out from the ballot box dugout fans let you know about it. Yeah. You're part of a great trivia question and that is when the Toronto Blue Jays and the Yankees got together made the trade Of course for Roger Clemens you know who the players involved in one of course was Graham Lloyd the other was David Wells, and then the third one was you as well how did you feel about that trade? You know follies tell people it was just. Straight up, and now we have the Internet I can't say anymore. But. David Wells was good for me because you know grandma grandma's well because we had just played together the previous season. So it made it a lot easier for me to settle in and as you can imagine anywhere. It's a party. So So it was You know even though I was getting up place for the first time coming over with you know an unbelievable pitcher and player like David Wells was a it was huge for me in that transition. You know you were a second basement and I think that most teams would accept any second baseman that hits to eighty. In their lineup, but you really batted very very well I was looking at the stats that when you were in Toronto, take take the nine, hundred, ninety, nine season you batted three twenty and you also had speed you stole thirty two bases and then when you were coming up into the major leagues as well, you batted three eighty stole six bases and only forty five games for the Yankees everything. How did you combine the two? Well I. I. I was just mainly utility for New York. I mean they they just had too many high paid players up the middle. It was tough to crack that lineup no matter how well I was playing. But the one thing I can say is an opportunity to play every day extremely fortunate to put up some numbers and you know and that's how I was able to hang around you know. A few more years but when I didn't play a whole lot of the Yankees you know I had guys like Tim Raines, Chili, Davis Darrell Strawberry, we all were balanced for it. That's coming off the bench. So I got to talk kidding. So I was always prepared and with so few opportunities I think it's it's Kinda unique. The the little success I did have because you know that was really not a factor. Of the players you just mentioned who picked up the dinner check. Oh Gosh man they? They took care of the young bucks. Oh. Wow. That's what I do that I can say. Two thousand three you didn't play because of injuries and I know. Confidence is such a factor for the pro athlete the highly skilled athlete, how hard was it for you to mentally and emotionally deal with it. It was tough. I that it was a, it was affecting my ability to perform. So I needed to take some time off I remember Joe Torry in late two, thousand and two. They came in town to when I was trying to only play them and he pulled me to the side and you say young man sort of. Player, it's be run out there half yourself. You need to take the take some time off. These I don't know what that looks like for you. But you need to do it and when I did it, it was tough because I know what I was going to have I was want to get back in the game It was just signing that new collective bargaining agreement. So you know my future was uncertain for sure but I'm glad I did it because my came back in. Two thousand four you know the Yankees weapons back? I didn't get up to play every day but I, felt healthy and that was the main most important thing. About forty five seconds leftover. But when you think back on your career, is there a particular memory that's kind of ingrained in your mind? Absolutely the Homerun that I hit my first Mason, you call them run and Yankee Stadium on ESPN my family got enough to watch it. Of course, the when world series was important. But that hit that home run you know just have pitches now and the run through my body time I. See video take a look at the soda. You didn't show boat at around the basis digit now. Oh no chance but two things one is when I hit it I, remember running around I saying to myself young man you just hit first major league home run and the other one the other thing is I was running so fast they were like, Hey, hold up showdown enjoy it.

Read Ryan joins us on Sports BYLINE president of the Houston Astros and the son of Hall of Fame Pitcher Nolan Ryan and he grew up in Alvin Texas and tried his hand baseball after playing at TCU. But now he is the president of the Houston Astros but has a big background in baseball read. I. Just wonder when you were growing up at what point did you realize what your dad did for a living? He get that question every now and then and I'll be honest with you. It's when he was with the California Angels and we had Career Day out in Villa Park at my elementary school and he brought catcher's equipment and baseball gear and everybody went crazy in the classroom, and that's really the first time that I noticed that Hey, maybe my dad does something different than everybody else you know it's kind of interesting because you know as well as I do when you have a father or parent who is an athlete in a well known athlete, it can be a minefield for the child what was it like for you growing up? Everybody, that I got to live every kid's dream because we grew up in Alvin Texas, which is a small town. You know about thirty minutes outside of Houston and it's the same town my folks grew up in Um, and so they were just you know no one and Ruth, they're all my aunts and uncles live there nobody treated us any different but then I got to experience this great summer time. Know Group of travel in bat buoying, and being a major league clubhouse and spent every summer of my life from the time. I was old enough to walk you know up until I was actually playing college baseball myself and then eventually professional baseball Major League clubhouse around Major League I. So I think I got the grounding and small town values that came with growing up in Alvin but I also got sort of the baseball pedigree and and upbringing of getting to be around the best in the business my entire life seeing it from the inside What type of impression did you get about professional athletes and particularly professional baseball players? Well, you know I mean first off the guys have a lot of fun. They're playing a game and camaraderie that comes with team I. It's it's something that you can never duplicate the rest of your life when you're part of a team and you're competing at the highest level you were so immersed in that on a daily basis that working a regular job isn't isn't quite the same. So that was probably the first thing the second thing. was how hard it is to stay in the major leagues you know they say the second hardest thing in sports is getting to the major leagues hardest staying there and the amount of folks that came and went over the course of twenty years that my dad played in the major leagues it's staggering and these guys that take the field and Major League stadiums are the top one percent of people ever to pick up A. Baseball, Bat and glove, and so seeing how much hard work and preparation went in to being successful at the major league level I, think we're life skills and values that I took away. That have helped me achieve a lot of things in life and your dad being as famous as he wasn't as good as he was did he give you any advice along the way as far as to handle his reputation and success? We don't everything that my brother and sister and I sort of became as adults really came from the values that his mom and Dad had my my dad was the youngest of six kids his mom and dad worked two jobs so that all of them could go to college and my dad was actually the only only child that didn't have a college degree and There was a work ethic there that you know we're going to do our very best that we've been given these opportunities and so the way my dad went about his career and raising US kids was you know I can I can remember him saying, Hey, you know I get paid. More for one game, my dad would make an entire season tire year working two jobs and he's like you know there's so much money here. I cannot go a day without knowing that I'm fully prepared, and once you let go of that baseball whether the empire calls it a strike, the catcher catches it the guy hits it your fielders, catch it. That's all out of your control. The only thing that you can control is knowing that you're mentally and physically prepared and that's dad outworked everybody he said I'm never gonNA lose a ballgame because I'm not in shape or not mentally prepared and I think those were the attributes that made him a hall of Famer. Your College Baseball at Texas Christian, they were drafted by the Rangers then and I remember in conversations I had with Dale Barry Yogi son also Mickey Mantle Son and also Pete rose's son as well. What they had to deal with when they were playing a game that their father had done and played exceedingly. Well, what did you have to deal with? What type of attitude did you take a re going into that experience? We know early in life kind of high school baseball is extremely easy and it really wasn't my primary sport I love basketball and and then as I got ready to make my college decision and I actually went to the University of. Texas and played a year for the longhorns before transferring to Tcu and I got an onto a much bigger stage with. Better players did I realize you know that? Hey, I need to make a decision on how good a player I to be in what do I wanNA put into it. But when you had success, it was expected and when you didn't people were always very quick to write you off and say, well, he's not as good as his dad and my. Father made me feel very good about myself you know very early on in life when he said look, you know if I was to go to Roger Clemens or you know Andy Pettitte or anybody that you want you know that's out there and say, Hey, you have to live up to what I did. Well, those guys wouldn't because their their own person. In their own careers and why should I have to try to live up to something that somebody else? Did you know God made us all individually, we have our own set of strengths and weaknesses, and so I just tried to be the best read Ryan I could be and I had to loving supporting parents that you know didn't care you. Know if I want her loss if I tried my best and that's all we ever tried to do was just do our very best that we could do with our God given ability and You know I was fortunate enough to get to play in college have success playing the minor leagues I had one really good year I had one really bad. Year and then I was done and I tell everybody you know being on Ryan Son. Never. Got Anybody out for me on the mound and it didn't make me an all conference player. I made myself and all conference player and it didn't give me released. I got myself released by pitching bad and so you know the opportunities that that being on Ryan. Son or working for the Houston Astros or anything else afford you might get you a game, but your success is going to be on how how much talent you have and how hard you're willing to work. You know I did one of his games on television I can't even remember the year on what I do remember about it as he had a no. hitter going into the eighth inning he was pitching for the Astros at that particular time, he finished with a two hitter but I had not really looked at him close for a long time and I forgot everybody talks about his fastball. I could not believe the curve ball that he had Did that amaze you to some degree? How good that was? Yeah I mean he had a had a really great curb all he had a true sort of twelve to six curb aw that especially with the velocity had and the and the motion that he had was devastating and for a long time, you know he was sort of a to pitch pitcher and so when you're A to pitch pitcher coming up, you know. You basically are spending more time perfecting that second pitch, and so he didn't really pick up his third pitch until later in his career. But when he did develop a change of I think that was one of the reasons that he was able to pitch the long because he ended up bringing something different to his repertoire. So yeah, he was more than just. A fastball Pitcher although many folks remember him for being the first guy to crack the hundred miles an hour mark and and being one of the hardest throwers in the game. When you that last year you talk about playing ball was nineteen ninety-five I? Looked at the numbers on that and I kinda smiled a little bit and I can understand why you said. Hey. I think I'm GonNa go a different direction here and you got into the management side of things and you've been running the AAA round rock express, which is a rangers franchise, and also Corpus Christi and that's a Houston Astros Minor League team as well. What type of approach did you take into the management side from what you've done in baseball and what you've been around? Well you know the great thing about me being in this position. I've literally done everything in the game I've played I've worked in the CLUBHOUSE I bad board I've sold I've you know rake the field in the first time I got drafted and played in a minor league game was the first time I had ever been. To a minor league game because I literally grown up in the big leagues and I spent a year in the New York Penn League and and had a really good year. I was five and five I was in the top ten in the League era and that was the year of the strike and so in nineteen ninety, five they asked all the minor leaguers to come to spring training with all thirty clubs and to cross strikebreakers and I couldn't do it because I was one of the. Few guys that everything I had come from yeah. You know the game of Baseball Well My dad had had done it. So I didn't really do anything for two months and I got off to a terrible start and ended up trying to do some things with mechanics to make me throw harder and it was a it was a great life lesson I ended up going Oh and ten to different stops, and that was the first time that I really tried to be somebody else other than myself and you know what it was disastrous for me and so I ended up getting out of the game at that point and had a love of the game and it really two things. I learned through that one your windows very short is a professional baseball player. You're only as good as your last pitch, your last hotdog, your last game, and so you have to take advantage of opportunities and and then the second thing is that this is an extremely hard game and I think you have to bring a lot of empathy to dealing with people and understanding that you. Know, these guys live and die on every bad You know every time they take the mound there's a lot of money on the line and and that they are owed the respect of trying to give them all the resources they can to be successful and it's no different than the major leagues and it is at the minor leagues but that's what I've tried to do is. Have empathy towards the players and understand the commitments and how far they've come to get to that point and then just try to give them the very best opportunities to succeed that they can you know the Astros returned to a winning organization I? Mean they're really fun to watch is well, they've got good young talent and that after having a couple of seasons of one hundred losses and. I was interested in a quote of yours in which you said a couple of keys after put the fans I and everything we do, and then we've got to make sure we're taking care of the players because it's all about the players. If you don't have the players, you're really not going to have anything curve hard is it to evaluate and get the right players for an organization. So I'll start with the fans you know without the fans none of us have jobs, and so the key is is we have to understand what it is they want, and the first thing they want is they want to winning products on the field. They WANNA product there represents the values that our community stands for, which is hard work teamwork determination hustle all the things that make people give up their very hard earned money to come watch these guys play and I tell our staff all the time are fans give us their money but more importantly they give us their time and time is our most valuable asset. So. That's where it starts. So I always say we take care of the fans I take care of the players they will take care of us and I talked about taking care of the players trying to make sure they have the tools to succeed whether that's the analytic tools we have the scouting reports whether it's the weight room whether it's the way we travel the hotels we stay in the uniforms we wear the staff that we have around them the food we feed them we want to try to make sure that they are in a position to where they can succeed and building an organization you know Jeff. Our general manager was brought in by our owner, Jim Crane to build this organization from the ground up, and really we looked at the landscape of Major League Baseball, and there's teams like the Yankees and the dodgers who a lot of ways us the other teams in. Major, League baseball is their farm clubs because they have more money and they're able to get more free agents and yes, they do develop their own as well. But a lot of times they're the guys playing. For the big name, free agents. Red. SOX Angels, those teams we're going to be team that's going to be more like the cardinals that's going to have to build from within and to do that, we have to have the best scouts, the best information, and then we have to have a really good development staff and we've added more money into our baseball operations department the last couple of years to. Make sure we have all those tools that when we're selecting players, we do the very best job to get advantages that other clubs don't have, and then we have the people that once we take this talent that they can develop them into big league players and they can communicate with our plan is and so We have a lot of consistency in our organization I think we're all you want. United in the line and what it is, our goal is and where we're slotted this game, a major league baseball, we only have about forty seconds left where he but when you think about your association with baseball known so many levels and with your dad and everything is there a favorite memory that you have? Yeah. You know he played so long and I've been in this game. So long now that that I'll run off a couple Obviously, eighty was a big year first time getting the playoffs for the Houston Astros. Eighty six was a wonderful year for me because I was fourteen fifteen years old my batboy and traveled with the team that that was a tremendous year two thousand five was a great year because our family owned the Astros AAA AA teams in the Astros made the World Series but really twenty ten and twenty eleven when my dad had gone up to Arlington as the. President of the Rangers and we had the triple team in round rock. We'd switched affiliations going to back to back world series. Those were incredible times and they were rival by this year with US beating the Yankees and having my son be there with me and realize that it was you know thirty years to the day that I had been with my father playing the knee work batches a member of the Houston Astros Batboy in my dad is a pitcher.

This is America Sports Talk Show Sports Byline USA. Here's Ron Bar. NAP tally, Williams joins us on sports byline. He is interviewing recording and cataloguing every living African American player from the turbulent I twenty five years of Major League, Baseball's racial integration, and that would be between nineteen, forty, seven and nineteen, seventy-one and Williams, and USC professor Daniel Durban have created the project and interviewing one hundred eleven African. American baseball players about old injustices and the lasting humiliation that many of them faced and many of the stories have never been told before and others will not be told until later on as Durban and Williams were told, you can only release them. After I'm dead, I would assume Naphtali that it's important and it's an interesting project. But what was the motivation for doing? Thank you very much. Really isn't important an important project one one of the things we look at as reminds us of how important baseball America at the time. It was it was the game and it was a pathway to help enfranchise so many different African Americans, and so there's so many stories that need to be told. And we know that we're losing those players all the time that it just made sense. This is what we need to do this. What Baseball Mental America. So we need to make sure we captured that part of American history and that's the thing is Jeff is African American and minority players, but it's also the story of America and American? And then it was also just important that all of these players are amazing and they had so much impact on the game. So just out on its own, those things make you know this was the right project to do. You said something interesting you said I wanna go back and let those dudes say how they felt what was happening talk about how much up baseball and talk about how much it meant to them what did you find that did mean to him. You know all say baseball was everything it really was and I specifically asked the question of what it meant to them, and also they mentioned that community because it gives us a really good context because the way people think about baseball. Now you know it's this village millions and billions of dollars involved with players, billions in the industry. So people are sort of removed from that space. But when you're asking them, it was the thing that they. went to bed thinking about that they woke up and the morning thinking about and it actually had an impact on the community. It was what people talk about the barbershop. It was what fathers with their sons and it was this community building space. So it really was everything and so it's important to let people know that it's at those times before all the money is involved it was the there's something that that inspired them in their hearts. Were you concerned in any way that there'd be a disconnect between you and talking to these players from a different generation because of the fact that maybe you did not relate to the times that they grew up in or maybe to the sport. Well you know it's funny because I you know you mentioned dusty Baker when we talked earlier and Morgan and I've talked to both those guys and they're fantastic and different players. But my feeling is that this is history African American history. So and as we place that in the context of America itself, it doesn't matter that I'm from a different generation than those guys or that I didn't know everything about baseball like all of your fans I'm sure no all of the stats and all of those things I. definitely don't crane to know that. What would I do know is I understand what's Happening in America at that time and how important it was and that they broke ground for all of us for all of us to play other sports just looking at education and being looked at as men. Of Color, who were full Americans? So that's something that's important. No matter what. So yes, I was intimidated because, of course, you talk to Joe Morgan or talking to dusty like just the other day I interviewed Orlando Cepeda and you are. In all all their accomplishments but that just makes it may mean so much more and I think that they feel that I think they recognize that there are other things that you know there's there's other sports and other ways doing gauge that these guys their stories matter and I think that they really relate to the fact that I that me cited this is this is a piece of the peace of mind history I've got work on this because. I can feel it. Yeah. One of the things I would observe is the fact that all of those players, the hundred and eleven that you're interviewing probably see this as a bridge, a bridge from an earlier time to a contemporary time and I really think you had an advantage Neftali because not being connected to the period of time that they grew up. You were kind of seeing things for the very first time and it was important to them to be able to explain to you and others who had not been through that period of time What it was like am I correct in that observations? No. You're totally correct because when you I mean truthfully I've been with these and I've seen them break down in tears just talking about what they had to go through and what it meant to them, and just just for for your listeners and for everyone hundreds up really understand. It's not just the guys who you know Willie. Willie mays in life Willie mccovey like the guys who are the best and who were the greatest of the game. All of the players faced some sort of adversity and so two likes let them get that off their chest and to let them really talk about how much they love the game and appreciate the game like those are those are just magical moments so. I think I think it is a different perspective from coming in and and really really connecting with them and I think I'd seriously they. I think a lot of the guys have told me stories that they have told their own kids because they say, Hey, you've got your kids. You don't think about it. You don't really want them to have all that on you but We're excited that you're doing this project because it's nice to get it off your chest. Talk about the good times and bad times and also gives the context where baseball is right now. So you know I have no matter what I'm totally honored to be doing this project and working with them. You know. Know as well as I do that transitions usually come slowly and they come somewhat easily. But when this happened in baseball, it was really kind of a shock to the system Jackie Robinson in nineteen forty seven. What were those early years like for the African American players? There's so many stories just you know. It was so hard for them. It was so hard for them, but I will tell you this. They all talk about how Jackie set the standard for them and they knew that they had all of the African American community on their back and you know as we all know, Jackie had to permit to make to make that transition for them and they all knew that they need honor Jackie and they need to honor the African American community and that if they did it do the right. Things, it would blow the chance for their chosen play, and for the way that you know African American men and women would be looked at. So there's a lot of pressure, but they they all they all rooms indication, but I'll tell you they told me just scary stories of being chased down the road by you know, take members or just equal in towns where they did. They didn't like them or like having Americans play at all. So I mean I can tell you stories where. You guys are talking about you know especially, especially, minor league ball about people throwing things at them. I'm from the stands and watching the you know how tough segregation was players who came from different parts of the country especially, the you know the the the California guys, California guys going and doing you know playing in twenty and my leagues and being in the South I mean. The stories are incredible. I can actually tell you Just things just thinking right now one of the players had had said to me I get out there and I didn't understand like a Jim crow south and I didn't understand what Martin Luther King was really talking about you know, of course I I heard it on the radio but I didn't really face the but he said I get there was. It was actually maybe so maybe we says I you know they're in the south and there's a guy up in the stands and he says, you know. He's The I bought my first major-league. Personally. It comes to me. It goes right through my legs. He said the guy. Has a watermelon, send them home and he said, I, just couldn't believe it like I didn't know that this is really going on now. I'm in the thick of it. So that's just one story you know what John, and there's so many other stories with so many different players having to worry and fear for their lives Thinking about their relationships worrying about their wives. On the road knowing that they've got a step this example, but still having all this pressure on them, it's IT'S A it's a testament to the strength of these guys like for me. I'm just lucky to be able to be recording and in reminders of. Where we come from. And what we should be doing in the future. Yeah. We've got about a minute before we have to break but Joe Morgan and I were talking and he was right here on sports byline and I asked him what the early days were like for him because when he started playing minor league ball with the Durham Bulls now here's Joe Morgan, who has a kid from California and certainly was not anything like what it was down in the deep south like and he told me that when he went and played for the Bulls the first time he went out there he noticed that all the black people were in one part of the. Stadium and he saw other things that you alluded to as well and so he called his Dad and he said Dad I'm not gonNA put up with this is dead says, yes, you are and he he said that was the start of my battle with that he said but I I really got was able to deal with it and I think the fact that somebody like Joe Morgan and went on to become a hall of Famer and was able to deal with it was something special hold on just a second neff tally we're talking of tally Williams we're talking about him recording and cataloguing every living African American player. From the turbulent I twenty five years of Major, League Baseball's racial integration and that would take you from between one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, seven, and nineteen seventy-one very interesting project.

This is America's sports talk show sports byline USA. Here's Ron. Bar. Tally Williams has joined us on sports byline. We're talking about this very interesting project that he has is he has cataloging and and really saving for Posterity Sake one hundred and eleven interviews with ball players who played from one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven to seventy one, and I'm talking about African American ballplayers and what it was like as you go through that period of time of some twenty, four years between nineteen forty, seven, nineteen, seventy-one what are the players tell you about that transition and and how much easier had got as you got closer to that seventy one day. I'm I'm glad you asked me that because I always ask them windy noticed that there was a change and you know most of the players really say they went from not being able to stay in the same hotel and all other stories of having to. Have somebody come and pick him up and bring them into the black session of town and that's all say that however they said the b-best cheese they noticed is right when. They could be in the same our town something that's simple as they drove into town together and they have to leave on a separate bus or separate car or walk through the. Town there were supposed to be on. So that's something that I say where they definitely feel that they transition transition was there and it was a personal a personal transition that they can that they could feel did you ever have a chance to talk with mud cat grant? Yes. I did and. man much has so many great stories even just talking about being with his wife and that the issues that he had to deal with low loving his wife who married you now and not being able to to not being able to be with her during his his earlier career because of the fact that she was white and he was black. Yeah I might share this with you and I'm sure he may have even told you about this. You knew he was a great. Musician. And so therefore when they would play. New. Orleans you're absolutely right. The musicians could not stay in the hotels in New Orleans they had to go across the river and stay Mississippi said but Ron, there was an upside to it. He said not only were the black ball players in the same hotel he said. So we're all the black musicians and boy did we have some damn good jam sessions? That's totally true. He told me about when you when you met Miles Davis I don't know did he ever tell you that? No Yeah he told me when he had met miles. Davis and he said your mouth was a man a few words. But he knew that I was taking a stand and baseball and he said you know he came up to me and said Hey I like what you? And the House raspy wrestling voice. So he he was he said that was fantastic and that playing with musicians like that was one of the only upside and asked all the players and they would say that they said, you know you knew where you need to go you didn't like it but that's just how things were. So you know you take the best the best are from that. You could yeah, people fed you. You know with the music was good Tommy Tommy Day as a matter of fact had talked to us about that because Davis loves jazz. And loves music and he talked about the fact that it was segregated and that's what you had to deal with. But you know there were some really great music and they're some great times to happen during the during that period amongst the people, Don. Buford of course, grew up in Los Angeles went to Dorsey High, school and I, know you had a chance to chat with him as well and he tells a very telling story in your interview with him about a guy behind the counter who pulled out a shotgun, pick up the story from there. Oh. Yes. That was definitely a case where. at that time he knew you know he knew that we weren't supposed to be in these these spaces you know and we're not supposed to be in the store no one's going to serve. African Americans and He got the gun on. said. If you don't get out of here, you know we don't we don't serve your kind and it's not just him. There were so many other players tell me those stories. So even when you're telling you that about Don Buford, but there was the same thing you know the same thing with John Mayberry It's the same thing even if we talked to many. Many thing is that the same thing all the players they all have stories like that. Quite. Has Stories like that even though he's later in the time they still all have these these these These stories I mean it's interchangeable as a matter of fact, just for your for your listeners I think it's important to talk about it. This is the African American experience in Major League Baseball Project that's what it's called. Definitely important that we include all of the minority players at that time as well because that that period basically everyone was going through the same thing and I think that that close really is really really important for us to to take no different. Now, because you know the way people self identify times have changed but you know you talk to the Puerto Rican players talked to you the Cuban players at that time if they were darker Jin. Had to deal with as well. But the what I like is that they always talk about the camaraderie that the African American players and and you know the Afro Cuban players or even Dominican players Puerto Rican players, they were all lack players at that time and that to me is something that's sort of a lesson that we can all take take from everybody was dealing with the same sort of oppression and to me that's that's one of the key components of this project is about baseball and history and the great time that they they're. Great Time, they had during the game, the way they contributed as well but to look at this unity amongst all of these communities, just because there was baseball and that they were willing to deal with all of those things to play the sport that loves then to be involved in the game and that they found the camaraderie that is that necessarily the same for all people in all sports these days. You know it's very interesting but baseball was a mainstream in the white culture for such a long time and up until nineteen forty seven it really was not mainstream. Of course, you had the Negro Leagues but it was not mainstream for African. American players and I remember mud cat grant. Ni- we were talking he he I told him I said I was driving to the Miami airport and as we went along the freeway I looked over and this was probably about twenty twenty five years ago and I said I. Looked over I, saw a little white church out in the middle of a Cornfield, and then I looked behind it and there were people playing baseball in their Sunday best with their white shirts on and everything. I said, what does that tell you about how important baseball was to the black community and he went into great expanse about that? What did you find out? What was the importance to the black culture at that particular time before they got into the mainstream and finally got into the mainstream of baseball and society? Baseball was everything best for so many players. So many communities baseball really was everything. You know somebody told me. They couldn't even imagined before Jackie that they could ever. Ever really make it make it and succeed. It was just it wasn't a dream that they could have. But it still didn't lessen the impact of baseball on their lives. They're still love sport and they still loved. What was happening to them and hours they spend it'd become better players, but they just knew there was a ceiling there was feeling that they that they couldn't. They couldn't get through until Jackie came along and that was the thing where the whole community got behind every player of color at that time and it was a big deal. It was it was really important I mean you guys were on you know they're on the front lines. That's that's the best really the best way to put it. They really were on the front lines and you know we come from a time period now where it's it's more about the individual. What you what you want to do and what you can do for yourself. But that wasn't the case. Then I mean, they knew every community new and that's why all the players said even though there were segregated Jim crow laws and they couldn't stay in the hotels they were black players in black players anywhere in the country at the time there was a community for them. So if that doesn't tell us how strong community was, I mean I don't know I don't know what else tests. They would take those players in they recognize what they were dealing with and no matter where they were in the country there were. There were there was somebody who is going to make sure that they ate okay. They had a place to stay and. You know it's the power of. Baseball the community that love baseball. Then I mentioned that there are some stories you can only release them after they're dead the players are dead and I'm just wondering when you think collectively about all the interviews did you find that it was Cathartic for them to finally be able to talk about this? Oh, very much. So you know. Dusty in particular, we're just really great and one called them and he got in touch with him. He was really proud of the project and part of me in general from not belonging to his generation and to to be interested in it because he said, you know we're getting older and winter we really going to be able to talk about all the things that we went through and. Those stories are important in the sense that people think like, Oh, well. It's just guys. Rehashing old days and things were bad. It's not bad like that anymore. But these are real stories and it was real personal history. It's very it's. It's such a release for them to be able to talk about that and put it in context in in really take a load off to take a break been carrying this weight for such a long time and as the Times change. Truthfully you can't talk about it in the same way because then people think that Oh, you're just trying to trying to set us back by talking about this, but they just never really got the opportunity to talk about it. Now I also want your I mean excuse me your listeners to not let there's so many good stories as well. Somebody players so many great nights so many great i. But all of those things are important to us. As sort of the fabric of American history, they get to get it off their chest. We get this wealth of knowledge of where we're at. And you know in particular they contributed so greatly the baseball into American culture the fact that everyone does it not their stories There's a lot of that. So that's why we're trying to put this together. So we can't go forward until we know where we've come from that's that's about Naphtali I wanNA. Thank you very much. This is a very worthwhile project I'd like to support and help you in any way that I can and thank you for sharing those stories because those are stories that do need to be told about the fabric of baseball from a complete standpoint.

This is America sports talk show. Sports Byline USA. Here's Ron. Dan Washburn joins us on. Sports. byline Dan is an award winning journalist and his writing has appeared in the Atlantic Golf World Golf Digest and ESPN DOT Com and he has written an insightful and fascinating book. It's called the forbidden game. Now, statistically zero percent of the Chinese population plays Goff a politically taboo topics still known as the rich Man's game yet China is in. The midst of a golf boom hundreds of new courses have been opened up in the past decade despite it being illegal to build them and courses were dug up and Shanghai's premier golf course was turned into a zoo. One thing I don't understand Dan if gough is frowned upon in a bad game yet China is in the middle of gough boom explained the dichotomy to me. Right well, nothing is really clear when you're talking about China nothing is in in black and white and I wrote a book about the topic and Oftentimes I find myself scratching my head but it was an interesting backdrop to tell a story about modern China this whole band but booming scenario and actually since the book has come out, the situation has has changed quite a bit but for the most the better part of the last decade starting in ironically starting in two thousand four when the moratorium on Golf Course Construction came down since since that time and the ten years after two, thousand and four. No country more golf courses than China now most people will wonder. Well, how is that possible The game is banned in China or legal to build golf courses in China and yet, and yet they are booming. It's because anything is possible in China. There are always loopholes The local governments are always looking for ways that they can either interpret or ignore. The rules that may come out of Beijing. There's a saying in China, the mountain is high and the Emperor Far Away and Golf is really emblematic of that of that statement So the the local governments, they often wanted this kind of development and they were willing to bend the rules to bring this kind of land hungry. Golf course complexes into their into their neighborhoods because it would increase their tax base that would bring a kind of a well to do clientele. But most importantly because the local governments are the ones who owned the land and they profited mightily from the the land deals surrounding these golf courses. So rule number one. During China's golf course boom is that if you're planning to build a golf course, don't call it a golf course. So in the planning documents that might be a sports park or green space or echo park you just don't call it the golf course and Oh, by the way, some guys will come and hit a little ball around with some metal sticks So it was all kind of wink wink. They're always crackdowns here and there but the only real constant was that the number of golf courses went up. So in two, thousand, four, there are. Around one hundred and seventy eight golf courses maybe eleven of which were technically illegal meaning. They had the word golf in their business license. And then now there's anywhere between. Six hundred to a thousand golf courses in China no one really knows how many because it was allowed to. kind of grow so so unregulated, but in recent years that that golf course boom has has pretty much stopped especially in the last year there's really no golf course construction going on in China right now because golf is wrapped up in this. This kind of never ending corruption crackdown. In. China. So it's really really kind of changed the game, and if we take a look at the historical aspect of this elitist politically the communist party as long really had a difficult relationship with the sport mouse. The Dong expressly banned it believing that it was frivolous and bourgeois and. Has Anything changed in that, thought process. Well. The way you put it, I mean, you know it's it's a very similar situation right now in some respects the game is still known by most Chinese those who even know what golf is they know it as the rich Man's game Maui called it the sport for millionaires. It still is pretty much. The support for a millionaire is in China it's it's it's a game that's enjoyed by. A very elite sliver. Tiny. Sliver of the population and in the minds of many it is tied to corruption because if any government official. was to seeing hitting the links or owning a membership at a golf club they would. Be assumed to be corrupt because no public officials should be able to afford to play the game of golf in China, and then also you've got all of these. Quote. Unquote illegal. Golf courses they all got built somehow and you know corruption obviously played a major role in that so it does have An image problem it also doesn't help that it's a a land and resource and water intensive pursuit in a country where where those things are in very limited supply and. As I said, it's out the reach for the overwhelming majority of the population. So if if Xi Jinping, the president of China is looking to make a populist move. Golf is a is a pretty easy and obvious target low-hanging fruit as they say, let's go through the book for just a second because you use three people in it to kind of explain your position and what's happening with Golf China one is how who is a peasant turn golf pro, right? So Jochen shoe is one of the most inspiring people. I've ever met in my life and yeah, he he grew up in arguably the poorest village in the poorest province in China grew up on US mall village on the top of a mountain and when he was growing up. He's only dream was to get out. It was a very, very hard existence and he eventually did get out HE ENDED UP AT A. Basically a school for security guards at a at a nearby city, and then he dropped out and and went to the boom city of the time, which was Guangzhou in southern China and he got a job as a security guard and he got a job as a security guard at something called a golf. Course. he had never heard of golf before he had never seen a golf course before but one of his jobs a security guard was falling around. The the group of Golfers and reporting back to the clubhouse where the groups were on the course. And there was something about the game. That he was watching. I mean it was. It was a strange game played mostly by foreigners, but there was something that seemed oddly. Familiar to him 'cause when he was a a little. Boy in the village and they would take their cattle to graze The young village boys would play games to pass the time on one of those games was digging a hole in the ground, winding up a ball of paper and seeing who could hit hit it into the whole with their farming stick the fastest and they didn't call it golf obviously because nobody knew what golf was but joe was intrigued by this game and he he was always competitive always affleck and he desperately wanted to play but it was forbidden. He was just a lowly security guard and this was A private club. So but he didn't let that stop him and he devised a way that he could. Train this forbidden fruit in in in private and secret. So he would. He would get discarded clubs and put them back together and he would. You know hit balls out behind the Worker's dormitory in agreement with the with the maintenance staff that he would help any windows that he broke. he would take a ball out he was sneak out of his dormitory, take a ball out to the green and under the moonlight roll it on the green, just to see how it moved. So he really taught himself how to play this game in secret and it. And it is kind of an only in China at that time story. But you know a few years later once he was able to play on a course, he found himself on the China tour this fledgling professional golf tour amongst the best golfers in the country. So his story is really I think emblematic of of the China Dream or you know a certain definition of it and and it's actually very. Reminiscent of of the American during if few, if you work hard at something, you can provide a better life for yourself and your family and he he always had kind of one foot. In the past, this old village lifestyle represented is parents in the book and then this. This new future because this, this whole golf opened up this whole new world for him and all sorts of. of possibilities he never he never imagined. So he's always kind of in the middle teetering between those those two worlds Dan we only have a couple of minutes left I want to touch base quickly on the other to Wang League farmer whose life is turned upside down when a massive top secret golf complex moves in next door to his tiny ancient village right so long Lebeau lives in the the island of Hainan which is Trying to build it as the Hawaii of China for some time now, I don't know if it's reached that way, but they are building a lot of course is there or they have been and this golf complex that moved in next door. To. Wong's ancient village where they live in these he's lava rock homes. the original plans for this golf course development or are somewhat boggling. Mind Boggling. It was originally supposed to be thirty six eighteen hole courses on a plot of land one half times the size of Manhattan. just ridiculously large and obviously impacted the lives of a lot of a lot of villagers who are either living on land or on the outskirts It didn't turn out to be thirty six courses so far they've only open ten, but is now known as Mission Hills High Net and. And that new neighbor really Turn Wong's life in the fellow villagers turned it upside down and they had to to figure out how to adapt to this this new neighbor next door because they realized that a villager or Wong realized. Villager, like him, Maliki farmer who drives a three wheel truck to and from the market every day he stood little chance against the powerful local government and a powerful Hong Kong developer. So his his part of the story is about how People in rural China or adapting to this breakneck change and and historians a little different because he. He actually figured out a way that he to make his his new neighbor work for him and and figure out a way to to spin it. You know make a positive spin on it and and figure out how to provide for his family and generations going forward and just briefly Martin I knew I. can get that pronunciation right a Western executive trying to navigate Jonah's Byzantine and highly political business. Environment ever watching Beijing's golf police correct. So Martin more than the golf course construction industry and he ended up in China's somewhat randomly and by accident, but it turned out to be a a great move for him businesswise even though a lot of people when he first arrived in China not in the ninety s to build golf courses a lot of people in the industry thought he was crazy because. The, golf course destruction was booming elsewhere especially in the United States and no one played golf in. China. The time. So people, Kinda. Kinda laughed at him. But he stuck with it and learn how things work in China or learn things don't work in China might be a better way to put it. And he learned that you know if you're going to do business in China. You need to see some degree learn how to play by China's rules the problem with the. The Golf Industry and China's nobody really knows what the rules are. It's a very gray murky area. But but if you know if I was to one golf course built in, China Martin would be to do it because he he figured out how to navigate this this this really complicated and highly politicized business world in China, a literal ground level view because he was working on the ground. The construction of these golf courses So he he just provides another. Another perspective on this whole. Complicated world that that call things in in in China in about thirty seconds if you were to crystal ball where Goff might be in China, say in ten fifteen years where might it be? That's a hard one to do I I've learned not to make predictions about China because then everybody don't come true now I could see on the golf course side. I. Could see it continuing to be a thorny issue just because of the issues that I that I stated before but you're also going to need to get used to seeing the lots and lots of Chinese name on the. leaderboard of Professional Golf tournaments, and that's all because golf is now an Olympic sport again, and as we know, China pay a little bit of importance to Olympic medal. So they've been funneling even during this whole supposed crackdown on golf at the same time the government's been funneling an unprecedented amount of money into their national team program all with the I on making you know creating future Olympic champion. Burn with us again, the name of his book is called the Forbidden Game Very interesting story about the state of golf in the country of China and I hope that you'll check it out because I found it fascinating the information that I read on it we continue across the country and around the world we've got you on America's sports talk show.

Sharon ZANDER'S ACA says, it speaks volumes about leadership we're looking at WHO's policing who. Is it the police police hard city elected officials.

The group says the Des Moines Gold Braid Organization sent the letter to avoid public records request that of Moines Register received a copy and confirms the group's claims about the content, the Union call the council member statements unprofessional.

To find something to watch right I. gotTa tell you it has become increasingly difficult. To find anything to watch. Based on how long has this been going on now seven months. So I mean didn't start in like March early March. So yeah, we've crossed six month boundary. I. Believe. Well, it started in March of March April May June July August this would be the seventh month. So anyway, let's just pretend like it's seven months for seven months. I have watched every single show in the history of Hulu. Netflix and prime. I've watched every show. There's nothing left I've seen everything. There's literally nothing left for me to watch. So I've watched them all and. I had to really go fishing tonight to find something and I was able to accommodate that. Necessity and I had a desire I needed something to what I was watching the dodger padres game. I wanted I I was like it was like heroin. I was literally by eyes were closed each I was closing at a different time like you know every five seconds I was like. I loose Gradiska. Just Keel or die. So I ended up finding which I enjoyed. I have to say and I have a history with them believe it or not. I'll tell you what that history is but I watched Jane's Addiction. A concert that they did at the Irvine. Meadows. In California when I think it was like the last concert ever at Irvine Meadows I could be wrong but it seemed like that's what it was twenty five years to the day. They did a show there at Lollapalooza and then they brought him back to close the amphitheater I could be wrong but I think that's what it was. So anyway, it was the it was like You know the whole they end and with peripheral. Perry Farrell. And it was a really good concert for for being a bunch of old dudes right I mean let's face it. They're like my age now Navarro's not my age but Harry, fareless. and. He was I thought really good. Now, the funny thing about it is is that I mean they played all their greatest songs and I think it was the the album with like You know three days and mountain and You know classic girl, all those songs you know carver high. and. just because just be conscious bannon. In an. Hour. When is the last time did and? tried. So anyway, I saw the whole concert I watched the whole thing. And then I brought back so many memories because I got to introduce Jane's Addiction. At the Tony Hawk stand up for skate parks event in Beverly Hills at Ron Birckel's mansion. Back. In the day and Lipstick City in Beverley hills, right. So I was the emcee the event and it was crazy. There was like ten thousand people there. It was insane and. It was I just remember. Just, a wild party, right in this guy's mansion in his backyard and all the skateboarders. Were there every great skateboarder in history? was there? Berko gave me the gold penguin cufflinks from winning the Stanley. Cup. Because he knew I was a penguin fan and I was the voice of the whole thing the MC and I got to introduce Jane's addiction and I got to meet him and they came out on stage and they did our show they did a set for like an hour and then I did the event at the. Win In Vegas two events one in Beverly Hills one in Vegas and the one in Vegas I think it was the it was. The killers or something or maybe Maybe X, was that a band I think something called X.. Or something like that. Static X now. Maybe was the killers that I introduced. He always had really good bands. Play it is events and I introduce Jane's addiction and they played at Beverly Hills imagine being in a mansion in Beverly Hills in the backyard vert ramps set up like a forty foot vert ramps setup, and they got like rows and rows of life skateboards and memorabilia, and like I mean Mariel amused off Yager staff jerseys. Hockey puck signed everything 'cause burkle own the penguins, and then the rest of it was Tony Hawk stuff like you know skateboards video games and then there was ten thousand kids there and skateboarders and then people were skating up and down this vert ramp doing tricks, and then all of a sudden here comes Jane's addiction out of the. Back Room and out into the backyard onto it's very small stage and they start shredding for an hour in the neighborhood in beverly I mean just shredding. Marshall Stack the whole deal. Won't out and it was insane. It was great and I just remembered. I mean. We got wasted. It was just it was. They had to carry me out of there. I was the as EMC and I just remember somebody drove me back to my. I had some big ass hotel on sunset strip and they drove me back to my hotel and someone wheeled me up to my sweet and I've passed that. But I added good time and I, got the hang of Jane's Addiction. So tonight, I watched an old isis concert was four years ago in two thousand, sixteen, it was right around the time of. The election and believe it or not with you know Hillary against trump. And they came out and and raged in Irvine and it was something else they had like. Strippers on the stage. They had a check swinging from ropes in the air would not like basically no clothes on it was crazy. It was pretty crazy and it was cool and it was good. It was good. concert music. I knew all the songs. I knew the band really well from. The nineties and stuff and. I've played a lot of that music on my show. So. I've already gone down the litany of reasons why I can't. Cooperate with the way they run radio these days that they have taken my music from me. That had basically made me The show was famous for its craziness and it's music and ferrallonthebench was notorious with this. You know skateboarders, surfers and. Heavy at all and that's how I got to meet Metallica and work with them and. Guns and roses and Motley crue and Jane's Addiction, and they all knew me because I played cool music and now I don't play any and you know. It's no big deal I just don't want to kill myself. So whatever. Whenever I get it. I mean they really have ruined me. They put me in a grave money in the crate. But I wish I could play the music and. IT makes the show ten times better and then. So I can't. So what I do is I listen to music you know pretty much. All Day I listen to it when I work out and listen to it in the house I shred I play cool music around here and I watch concerts if I can get my hands on him I love everything man. I love all kinds of music strangely enough. I've I've. Adapted, through the years I told you like back in back in those days I was all about punk rock and heavy metal and alternative music. Addiction and stuff like that, and then and then certainly now I still like all that music but I really like you know strangely enough I've told you all I. Kenny. Chesney I. Think he's Great. I think I don't like country music at all but I think that he's great and his music is fun. It's like Caribbean. It's there's a lot of beach to it. There's a lot of tiki bars to it. There's a lot of. You know drinking smoking and getting some leg and being out on the boat and fishing anti. Smoking fat as and his songs are I think a lot of fun I think is channels. A lot of fun is the music that he likes. The musicians that he likes that he has on on the channel or really good. So I like that music I like a lot of music but I you know I still like old stuff do. I've always been a huge rolling stones fan. But tonight I watched jeans. A lot of memories and I got to Shred. Perry Farrell Dave Navarre Company.

We. ON CADILLAC CONVERTIBLE Out. Running. Way the dodgers won that game today over the Padres I hit that bad by the way. and. Then I took that cardinals game with wainwright in game. One of the double header I hit that. In terms of bats. I saw I was wondering with. MIAMI. I Know Martinez did a big home run for the red. SOx. But it was still like eight to four when I looked at it and Miami was up I want to check these scores. Well, the phillies just choked away their lead against the mets they've now lost that's a final. They had a four one lead on the mets they lose five four nice job by the phillies tonight. So they blew it and they were up five one or. Four one they were up, they were up for one. degrom left the game after the second inning. He got hurt. Wheeler. Pitching into the eighth. Couple batters too many for him. And the mets then win it with a run the top of the ninth and Diaz close it out in the bottom of the ninth. Right. So I both ends of the cardinals brewers hit the cardinals for doing game one brewers nothing in game two. The Orioles evidently beat. They be called hamels tonight. That's what happened. Was He got lit up. Lit Up. Hamels yields three runs in his debut a five one loss. He gave up three runs in the third and that was it. He got the loss. So did I not call that today on Costa goes like oh? God. Here we go. With this guy, they brought him out of the addict. Yeah he's going to be a big big boost them for the postseason. Remember that. I. was telling the other night. You know they're really count on him to give him something in the postseason. Come on. I won't tonight a guy at a pretty good career, right? You can't. Early that year that goes you're the phillies won the world series. He was unbelievable. That year was the world series. MVP. If I remember correctly said royals four nothing, the Tigers mets five, four of the phillies the as beat the rockies three one, I hit that game the nationals over the race for two Yankees. Again, they've scored thirty three runs into games they won thirteen to two tonight. What did they do in that game? Did they have a lot of it must have had gone your boy Higashi Yoka with a couple of home runs three of them. Three home. All we did. He get a third third. and Dj Lemay you had to. Judge home runs in the game thirteen to two they win Garrett. Cole six and three. Are you happy now with Garrett Kohl's turnaround? Well, you got to remember something about Garrett Cole? Okay. Things are going to get really magnified here because it's only sixty games and the season started. You know basically last week of July first week August you know normally a guy pitches starts in early April and he's GonNa make thirty plus starts. And that rough patch that he would have happened in a normal season. Let's say early May and you would have had plenty of time for him to work out of it. The problem is is that the pressure gets ratcheted up because you only have sixty games, guys can't afford especially guys. You just gave big money to to have a couple of bad starts and that's what he had. Now he's pitched really well, two times in a row we had a no hitter going into the six. Before giving up that run. Pitch. Good again tonight, lot of strikeouts and everybody seems to be getting going for the Yankees. With, a couple of weeks to go here before the playoffs so they needed. Eight strikeouts for coal one earned run. By the way you're Aaron, judge over Ford and his return to the lineup after missing the whole season, and here's another one. Why did they hit and they get so wrapped up in lefty righty garbage. and Aaron Hicks Hitting Third Tonight in that lineup sitting fourth. The fourth tonight that he hit hit foresight. Third or fourth whatever it was. Clean. Up with his to twelve average. He stinks he's just awful Clinton every time I see him every time I see him I cringe. I don't even care if he hits a home run in the playoffs either he sucks he is terrible stop with this Aaron Hicks BS and can't take it anymore. Let's just. Can. We just admit he's terrible. I mean I'm done being nice. I'm done with it. You suck get rid of him. He never does anything they paid them eighty million dollars to two hundred. Can you imagine like? I, can't even you know. If you had two hundred and you're being paid that much money. You have to get it back. As you'd be a part of the contract that closet says if you suck give it all back. I mean honestly he he should be paid the league minimum for his hack gas. And another one I can't be. We've already gone down the list Sanchez hitting one, thirty four, and then they're not even playing. Gardner. He's another one that can't do it anymore he's done. Not. Writing, on the wall time for guarding party, it's like bachelor last year they went to year too long with them. They didn't need to go another year. There was no reason to but now at least they're playing clint everyday in left field because Clinton is the main. He's ridiculous home tonight for him. He's. For two or three with another one tonight, and then you hit home run again was voight. Void had some run every night now? He's had a good season for them he and he was the only guy hitting losing streak. Less need like playing. Coming. Guys yes. He was doing nothing for the cardinals. Can you believe what he's turned into for For the Yankees. I gotTA ZIP on my kneecap. Have you ever had sit on your kneecap off the top of my head I can't remember situation like that. Literally it's a gigantic white. Cap. Like it you know ready to blow just as tight as ever. It's like a nail and it so enormous. If I, get him ever. You know rarely do I get him.

Rona bench what do you think happened there carver high? I don't know hopefully nothing bad. Well, getting back to the news that matters I did popzette. Job. And I was able to it bled profusely, and then I was able to I will say that it turned black and blue in a hurry. You, know bleed and turn red or you know be like A. Papas it like your face or something it's usually you know like a like red and bloody. This is like black and blue it just immediately turned like purple like completely black. So it looks like I have a it looks like I have like a black sharpie mark on my kneecap. It immediately went black and blue because I'd had enough of it. The thing was the size of a dime and I just said, you know what watch this up and cranked it and it just popped now is all she wrote. I cleaned it up and now it's black and blue but. Speaking of. Lou Turns to black or whatever the name of the allison chains out Moore's Latte turns the blue or whatever it is. That's what I just did to my knee honor of house chains. Like them apples. I'd so you never told me really never had a chance today to. Talk to me I'm going to talk to Joe Lisi about the big ten and about college football in this week's games and everything we'll talk about that with him. So you never really you've got to talk to me for a couple minutes about the islanders. And how they won that game I never got to tell you that I thought that Varlamov a dive slide. Was One of the great moments in NHL history because I have never seen a goalie. Go into a full-on slip and slide dive. I've never seen a goalie do that before he just ran he skated like as fast as he could, and then he dove on the ice any slid for like forty feet. And it was a beautiful moment in Nhl Lore. It really was all the emotion there after the really goal and he comes with the BELLYFLOP. Halfway across the ice is. Good for them. Like I was saying earlier their team that. They have fought in these last four games. In this series, they've split them to two. I really wish that they didn't get hosed in that first game with the scheduling, but it is what it is. Every you gotta deal with it. Because they have not looked like that the rest of the series you'll even admit that that game one, the islands have not looked anything like that. The rest of the time they haven't, but I mean it's like, I, you need us rink for like getting over that. You've been talking about that now to be for days. that. I don't even remember gate, but here's what it comes down to. Here's what. I can't either if they surround worried about aim one, they're gonNA lose and they're not worried about that. Here's what it comes down to tomorrow night. They can't they won last night but they need to. Take some more chances and put some more books in the net. I. Don't think they're going to be able to play a game like that again and come out on top because Tampa has too much skill that they will find ways to score volve might not make same saves tomorrow night, they need to get some goals. Get up to nothing that's what they need to do. You need to take two goal lead the play from ahead. if they get into a game like that I think it could be trouble for them. So they I brought this up on coast to coast today and I'll I'll bring it up again to you. I watched the game right and I was rooting for your team. Because I'm a loyal friend that roots for my buddies team when my has been eliminated unlike you. See that evil laugh people just heard it. That was evil. So anyway, here's the deal. I'm watching a game and I'm thinking to myself even though I bet on Tampa doesn't mean I was rooting for him. I just bet on them rooting with the heart and bedding or different. Islands in the Caribbean Okay and the one with the money on it is the one where I'm There's no hard involved. So and that's where the big boat is not the little dinky. Little Dinky. Was it had my heart on it and I was over there rooting for you but here's the deal when they. When they played the first and second overtimes. First of all, the four minute high stick bleed was just under believable minute tanner whatever in the third and then and then you play the first three minutes of the overtime with a short handed against the best power play in the league. I don't think there's a bird dentist Bernstein centered on Saturday at a person in the world that didn't think they were gonNA score I saw him over. Three probably did but here's here's the thing I just felt like in the overtime I did not think they had a good power play at all in either the end of the third or in the three minutes I thought the islanders to shut them down. And then there was a moment in the overtime that I remember specifically where Annersley I believe is that was that had no stick he broke his stick. Two minutes or ninety minutes the guy skated around with nothing but his skates as a as a deterrent and it was pathetic because Tampa in that moment of ninety seconds to two minutes. Literally and there was no advantage. It was five on five but they it was like being on a power blake one guy had no stick and he couldn't go to the bench and they kept the puck in the zone for two minutes and they literally didn't get one shot off. I couldn't believe it. How do you not get a shot off with a guy that doesn't have a stick? They just kept passing around and they never shot it but. That's not my point. The point is, is that the remainder of the game in overtime and the second overtime they had at least seven chances I can count on two hands. How many chances they had to score I mean add some great chances. One of the parks bounced over Varlamov and was laying on the ice behind him between his sight. And it did not go in it just sat in a sludge puddle and they never poked it in and the guy was skating up. I think Kucherov is getting up to poke it in and he got. He you know I think I think far llamas or someone got a leg on it at the last second and locked it. I think I. Think it was relaxed. Got His leg on it. Okay. So that was just that's my point. They had seven chances to score and I thought the islanders had one chance to score on it was bars all. The bars l. play where he kinda got the. He was breaking in and he did and he just couldn't get it high enough on vessel Anyway the the guy. He couldn't get the shot up in the air he couldn't he couldn't make. But. I thought they had one chance to their seven. No you're right. The the lightning had more opportunities in both the overtimes to get it done. But they didn't have a an opportunity like a mistake like what the islanders one on you know it wasn't a lot of. Break away or things like that. They had really strong opportunities. The islanders then finally got that chance to on one. You're getting absolutely nothing offensively you have to bury that. and. That's how you win a game a double overtime game like that you have to capitalize on the mistakes and the Great Pass from Louis to get it across to Everley there he had the man on them. I didn't I didn't think he was gonna get it across I I knew it was going to try pass it, but it was a perfect pass and took care of it. Beauty goal and that was a great shot. Funny. Bernstein mentioned it to us today that it was like the Guy Evanston he never. had. With the islanders in Edmonton in the bubble. So. If you were to. Like Let, me look at this. When is the draft? Didn't you give me some dates October October sixth is the draft I mean draft is coming up in a couple of weeks here. Okay. So they're going to draft in a in a few weeks. Yeah. War were semi that this thing's over soon right and then when it's Okay. So when it's after the draft, how long is it? Do you know exactly when they're going to start the next season? Well, they're doing the sixth and seventh of the draft. Of October, then free agency starts Friday the ninth if I had to guess. Now Bettman I. Think he's being probably a little pie in the sky. I think that he wanted to start by mid December I, don't think he's GonNa be very realistic. I. Think that if they can start New Year's Day. Right, about there I think that that's what they should be shooting for, and then they can they still wanna play eighty two also. I think if they start January first, he can get everything done by the end of July and then he can get somewhat back onto regular path. So, are they gonNA play the season? In normal fashion in light yet now, we don't know. That yet there's been both ways. Yeah. There's there's no way they can have a bubble for the whole season. No, it's very hard to do I mean. They need. They need to do something like mlb and the NFL are doing where they're going to be traveling to these empty arenas and going to be playing there unless things obviously change in the next three or four months who knows what's going to happen. But for now, I would think that they're going to go to what MLB's doing traveling around. Well. What are you saying, leave fans, I'm not saying it'll be fans yet but they'll be doing that. What do you think's going to happen? Let's say fast forward to. January. First. What do you think the world's GonNa be like Oh man. I. I hope better. I not that far away. It's not. It's not that far away. It's three, three three months away. Geez I. Hope it's better. That's for sure. I. Don't WanNa get any of this second wave stuff or Do you think there will be like, do you feel that when? The. The fall is here. The fall is on Long Island and Jersey, and in new. York City in the morning, it's cold. So. I know that like the next day I think tomorrow or the next day. It's GonNa be decent in the daytime. You know it's like seventy five or something like that. But in the morning, it's cold. It's School and it's fall and the leaves are falling and things like that. So where we live in New York City whatever it's starting to be fall. So what happens in the fall when it gets cold and then it starts raining in October and it I mean, it just rains every other day for like twenty, four, forty-eight hours it just never it's never nice. Like in October November forget it some miserable here. It's just gray and Graham, and it's the beginning of the hell. How many people do you think it's GonNa you can't deny because it's the cold and flu season we have cold and flu every year in those in those months. What do you think it's GonNa be cold flu and Komen. Probably not ideal. That's for sure. I don't think it's going to be an ideal situation. I don't know you hear so many different things from so many different people who think that they know what they're talking about. Some people tell you. It's done some people tell you. It's coming back stronger than before you don't know who to believe, and that's the biggest part of the problem. Believe that it's over or Dow. I. Don't I don't seriously believe that but there's people selling you that I don't seriously believe it but it's hard because you have so many people selling you so many different things that you don't know exactly what to believe I saw. Did you see these idiots running through the target store in Fort Lauderdale with no mass on add some Issue that yes, I did. But he thinks should happen to those. You know. Follow, the rules I just don't understand. Follow the rules. What are we doing this? They should asked me. At Ain't they should allow people. To. Feed. Their ass.

Kings are hiring the rockets assistant GM money McNair as the new head of basketball operations. So. there. Is that the kiss of death or what I mean no offense to anybody but. What a disaster that thing is honestly. The kings I mean in reality it's like going to hell isn't it? No offense I'm not trying to be a jerk. I'm just telling it like it is right. Is that where you go to die? It's not the place on your list when you're looking to. Jump up the ranks in the in the NBA. You don't start it up. You know what? The kings that's really a place where I can get things cooking, and that'll be my stepping stone to the next job. Did you ever see like when they were good though with Webber and Blahdy in those guys they were good. Those were good. Good Times one good time talking. In franchise history they have one good little section at time. So to Grand Guy injured than I he left the game. and. The other night it was ARRIETTA. That had the same thing happened both of them. Hammy. Right. So. Guys are dropping like flies. In. Baseball. And then I told you. There's only a few games going on right now twins up five one in the ninth on the white sox cubs, Tutu diamondbacks sixty angels and the giants now eight nine thing on the mariners in Seattle. So we're GONNA talk to Joe Lissi coming up but I wanted to bring up the golf really quick. So tomorrow, the US Open starts at the famed wing foot in New York. And I am just here to tell you just. So you're aware I. Don't know if you saw coast to coast today for scripted TV. But I had on David do sick of Golf Week and you know I have a friend a really good friend that is a member at winged foot. And this guy is from Pittsburgh and he is a great golfer. fact he lives on a great golf course in. Pittsburgh. That's legendary and the guys like Scratch Golfer, he can really play. And he's a member at a Guy Gos- more than when I now and he's A. He's a member wingfield. So imagine living in Pittsburgh, but you're a member wingfield. So I was at a club, the other day plane and I I think I I don't know if I told the story but Michael Jordan, Samuel Jackson Mark Wahlberg are all members there right. So these are Hollywood guys and. An NBA owner worth billions with his Nike Line, Michael Jordan and the most famous basketball player ever. And they're all members of this club in New York right? Not Winged Foot. It's a different. It's a different club and it's a really good golf club in New York City and. Same thing, my buddy lives in Pittsburgh, but he's a member of wings. And he told me. And he's never taken me golfing there and you know it's not like I see him ever I'm really busy but I see him if I go to Pittsburgh if I go home to a steeler game or Pangolin. Her my dad's funeral. I saw him and. I always see him when I'm when I'm home in Pittsburgh and he's a member winged foot and he he used to tell me stories about it, but it's the the most brutal golf course. In the country. Bar None like absolutely Barna now there's a lot of people that would say you know oakmont in Pittsburgh is legendary for US opens and it's one of the greatest golf courses ever and then you know Pinehurst there's people that would say. I think Pebble Beach is more beautiful and is probably the most beautiful golf course in the country, but it's not the toughest. It's really a good course, but it's not the Deva's golf course ever like bethpage black suede tougher. Right these are visitors something. That's all. That's all the pebble beach is it just looks cool. Ones. That's all it is. Okay. So wing foot is the most brutal golf course in America. I mean, that's what. I mean there's I. Mean like guys on tour are they not saying? This is the hardest of course they've ever played. There's guys it Justin. Thomas Tiger Wood they're all saying the same thing. That's the hardest golf course they've ever played. So. I am so excited. To Watch them all. Suffer. For the next four days I have. Absolutely. No reason for any reason at all to watch except to watch them suffer. Now I know that sounds cruel but I am cruel because we've watched these guys twenty, twenty, four, twenty, seven, thirty under par fifteen, hundred, ten, five at six at their never. Ever Right He's got everywhere. They play everywhere even Augusta? They're under par. It. Doesn't matter where they play. There's nowhere that they're overpower. And now we're GONNA see. The winner the last time they played their Jeff Levine was five over that one. So we're going to see guys literally they're GonNa be guys shooting twenty thirty over. And they're GONNA they're not gonNA make the cut but the cuts going to be gigantic it's going to be like. Who knows what it'll be but if the winner was at five, what would you think fifteen will be the cut. I mean it's be horrible. It's GONNA be. It's GonNa be horrible but I wanNA see it because. I've always said and people can hate me all they want I think the open championship. Is. The best of the majors I know everyone thinks it's Augusta I know everyone thinks it's the masters. There's no questions asked. The reality of it is is that the hardest tournament is the US Open. And the best tournament. If you ask me the open championship, the British open to me is true golf pure brutal. Violent. Wind rain cold whipping. Deep. Twelve foot bunkers links golf. Rolling Perkins said to be perfect. You have to you have to hit shots on angles and off you know banks off rolls off hills downhill lies uphill is all these shots are crazy, right? It is just absolute insanity watching them play links golf. Like when they play at Kia on the ocean course in the Ryder. Cup. That's the same thing brutal, right. So I and whistling straights brutal. Links. Golf. I like links, golf I like brutal casts of. Frankly endurance nerve anger. REEVER BAVA bad shots like find a way. You've gotten all kinds of trouble and you're looking at a double or triple, and then finding a way to walk onto the next t and somehow try to get a par. 'cause the courses so hard if you have a double, how do you get a par on the next hole when you're angry and everything like that carbohydrate you have an opinion of. G You enjoy watching the pros. Suffer. I do enjoy watching the pros suffer I. Think it's good sometimes to see an extremely difficult golf course like winged foot get you know the sometimes the golf course in the US Open is the star. Now that's just the way for one way or another. And I like that better than a couple of weeks ago at the northern trust when the guys are shooting twenty-seven on the front nine, I mean. That's just the way that I feel. I would rather see these guys have an extremely difficult challenge like at a wing foot. nope. Mont. at bethpage black. then. What I saw a couple of weeks ago. So yes, I do like when the golf courses kind of the star of the weekend. So, David was on Zander's softly I'm on Zander sharply DJ. Again I, just think Dj's just playing great golf right now it's hard for me to bet against Dustin Johnson but if there's anyone that I like it would be as Anderson Lee who seems to be chasing him like no other and I taught Dusek said it best that? Justin Thomas has. Putting problems in terms of. You know for the season and he's not putting great. But I thought he played really well in east leg the tour championship as well. So I cannot write him off I. Think Rahm is a guy that's been playing golf whole season and. You know this guy this shambles big bopper. Obviously he's a big hitter but to me, it's one thing to hit big. It's another thing. To hit big and end up. In the rough. If you're GONNA hit big. Where's IT GONNA end up in the fairway or in the rough if you're just gonNA drive it three hundred and fifty yards three, seventy, five, three, eighty and ended up in the deep rough at this of course.

Now back to the bench with Scott Ferrall. Overnight Joe Lisi is back on the Mahogany waxing up to college football. Hey, Joe, what's happening? Did you have a good night tonight? I know you're very busy. Thank. Scotty for I was towing carver, my picture or anything like my blind dates man I I've get off the Schneider I. I need a hot streak. It's not go I need wait for Saturday. So what happened on your blind date? Would you say, let's say just didn't live up tax vacations how about that? But at dinner was fantastic. Seventy five dollars for Lehman Young Caesar Salad fantastic I rushed out there thinking that I I told car found. A diamond, the Roth nine next thing you know. I don't know I, was having there. were, they have it. So what did you wish at any point that you were Helen? Keller. And he got to the rest of. US Well. After emperor dinner was over I was hoping that it was Saturday. So I can at least putting some action to make up for the lack of disappointment you know I mean that's that's what I was hoping that Miami will was off a couple of hours later. So you watch the game at least get some action and and just get the pad case out of my mouth. So. You know speaking of the canes, my buddy lives in in Miami and he's a big canes Fan with me. I've gone too many canes games with him back in the day at the Orange Ball where. We would drink. Fifty Presidente Beers at the game and get. And watch the canes rough people. Up. He was talking to me the other day about Derek King any said that he thinks that he's so remarkable that they're gonNa beat Louisville on the road by eleven and I was like by eleven I was like I don't know. If Miami can be. That's good by eleven these days I mean like I said beating you UAB by seventeen is not good enough for me. Joe. A twenty years ago they would've won that game sixty three to nothing. Yeah. Great Point. Scott and I agree with that I think the one concern that I saw out of that UAB game was the offensive line did not show consistency or any type of cohesiveness now. was the lack of spring ball the lack of practice time leading up to that match up. Was that a factor? Yes, it was. But we saw the Eric King make up for the lack of online play his athleticism around the outside. He rushed for eighty three yards and a touchdown. He's going to be the x factor in this match up it's not an easy. I MEAN LOUISVILLE IS A. Loaded offense I said second best offense behind Clemson in the ACC this year in terms of me Cunningham, he's an athletic quarterback Jay. Beyond Hawkins as a fifteen hundred yard rusher, they have Tutu atwell designates Patrick but this was a team that my Miami dominated last year they beat them fifty two to twenty seven in in Coral Gables and South Beach and dominate that match up from a Defense perspective, it was a wet track. Now they go on on the roads a little I'm expecting quincy roaster step because they can run the football for at least two hundred yards in this match up I. Think they win their underdog catching two and a half points I like them on the money line not sure they'll win by eleven, but I do feel they get the Saturday night winning on. So repeat that to me again, who won the game last year? Miami Fifty, two to twenty seven. I took him as a five point favorite. They jumped up early. The defensive line stuffed up they force turnovers one concern the the one difference though it was a monsoon in Miami that day. So Me Cunningham struggle with that match up he fumbled they had some inconsistencies and then Miami just rolled till like a twenty eight Point First Half Lead Louisville got back into the game somewhat but they still lost by twenty five and a half twenty five, catch you five and a half points in that matchup. Yeah. I just wanted to let you know I can only think back to yesterday. Really, good with thinking back. In your. People. Where do you think you're going to be in five years what? I don't even have any. To Go back and look at gangs but I'm glad you remembered. Here's the deal. I just. I'm I'm scared to death to have faith in them. I, just you know and I've been a fan for forty years I've told you this before but I they have let me down so much in the last ten years that it's just been embarrassing like I used to roll into work with my cane stuff on all the time carlisle at hats, shirts, hoodies, sweat shirts, jerseys, everything canes, basketball shorts, canes, flipflops all deal. I wouldn't wear that stuff out I'll get shot in. The end of my driveway. Naughty because they've just been so terrible. So let me ask you. Let's go. Before we get into some of these other Games I. WanNa. Get your opinion on the big ten's decision today Yeah I mean it's interesting right I mean they will one of the first in the PAC twelve, the mountain west they were the first to make the decision and now they are they were on the outside looking in they got back into the mix they're gonNA kick off it looks like October seventeenth I again, I think they asked me to quickly I and I think they realize that and now when you have teams like you know kicking off last week. You see Miami the Eric King if you're justin fields and you see Trevor Lawrence and you're watching them play in primetime you're like I want to get mine and I. Think. That's what happened in terms of you know putting the pressure on Kevin Warrant to get back and have this vote, and now you see the PAC twelve scrambling right now they're scrambling to get started in late October. I don't know how that can happen but that's what the pack twelve is is hoping to do at this point because there's the last power five conference that's on the outside looking in as we speak on. Wednesday night. So they're going to start on the twenty four th. The big ten of October that'll be the beginning. And then in the end. Carver high told me today on coast to coast. What they're doing is they're going to have you know they're playing eight games plus the title Game But then the ninth game is everyone else. So the second place teams in each division play the third place teams in each division. We'll play etc etcetera down the down the list. So the really in reality playing nine games and everyone plays nine games in the championship game is the ninth game for the two best teams in the conference. and. So you know who one of those teams is going to be is Ohio state without a doubt there's a lot of people think that they're going to win the national championship this year with Justin fields are you buying that and are you certain that they'll be in that big ten championship game? I think they'll. I'm sure they'll be in the big ten championship came. They are headed and shoulders above the rest I? Mean over the last five years, they've lost five conference games I mean, they just dominated the competition. They won their conference games by thirty three points per game last year. The biggest concern is they had two players off out why and Wade now they're expected to come back. They haven't been given that clearance yet because both players soaring with agents. So we have to see how that situation place out I still think ballplayers Justin. Fields is good enough that offense is good enough to get them to the conference title without a doubt the only team that in my opinion that could possibly challenge them Penn State Mike Parsons might come back now he's in you know insinuated that he might WanNa come back but that's the best team in my opinion to knock off all state even though Joe Milton starts for Michigan until they cannot go Ohio state and show me that they could step up on the road. I can't buy into Jim Harbaugh in a big spot right now. Hey Suck. They lose last date every year of here about them. They get so much hype and they're just not worth it. What's the story with the kid? The quarterback who I guess he's not going to start. So he wants to transfer he's a quitter. McCaffrey happen. Yeah I mean that's that's the landscape of college football right now it's it's unfortunate one Dr Yours. If you don't get your opportunity your move look at the kid from Navy Perry Olsen he transferred after the first game of the season against Byu we came on mop up duty so I it's just unfortunate legal landscape of college football. We're GONNA. See as long as these rules allow these players to to just transfer out under the pandemic type of situation we'll see and if they don't get their opportunity to play and and hopefully they get into a program that really you know allows them an opportunity to start and showcase their talents. A Joe Joe Lisi with us from sports. Do you think? I heard that that if you get the IT, they have to automatically sit out twenty one days I mean if one kid gets it, that's that's three games they're only playing eight nine. I mean if you get the Cova you're screwed, I got ninety seconds on that. Yeah I think it's crazy I mean twenty one days is ridiculous. But that's the rule that they couldn't place because of the harnessed shoes. So again, we have to factor that from the gambling perspective as well. That news is GonNa be very valuable. We find out that players get sick or test test positive throughout the season. So let me ask you this question at The big twelve doesn't have that rule it's not applicable but how this Guy Lincoln Riley, he won't reveal any player that gets it. Don't you think that it should be mandatory that every team announced who has cove it I think they should, but they won't because it's College for Paul may protect the athletes the injury report of the of the worst in terms of you know getting the the information from the school's Heidi great from gambling percent if we need that information, but we won't get it, and until they enforce it teams like Lincoln Riley and Oklahoma will fail to do so. You know I got a plan how `bout when they test them. They're not going to reveal who has it how `bout we don't reveal to them that they have it. Aw. That's come back. Jones had a bad blind date. It turns out she was for us to say. Combat. His Vallejo.
