"Last licks on Ed Randall's Talkin Baseball Major League Baseball gave its older umpires more vulnerable to the virus. The option to opt out of this 60 game season. About a dozen chose to do so, including our guest, Phil Cousy, the pride of Nutley, New Jersey, whose home after 24 seasons and we welcome him back to Ed Randall's talking baseball field. Great, great to have you What are you doing with yourself? Well, good morning it. You know that. That's that's a good question. Because this is this is unprecedented. And, you know, just thinking about it, but this the first time Since 1985. My first year in the minor leagues was 1985 the first time since 1985 that I'm home for the entire summer. Well. So it's really you know, it's what am I doing? You know, in the very beginning When I left Florida. It was. I was afraid to come out of the house, to be honest with you. And this thing seems to have loosened up a little bit now and you know, in terms of Shining outside, but you know it was It was anything like a vacation because again, you couldn't do anything. He couldn't be with friends. He couldn't You know, I even my family, you know, except for my wife. I need to see my family in the very beginning, So it's really been crazy. Where were you in spring training when the game shuts down. Actually, I was working with Tom Hallion in Brady and we had were with the Pirates. And it was crazy because we kept hearing no from fans, You know, spring training very lucid and you go over and fancy between innings and, uh, you know, it's fun for everybody. And fans were saying they were here and that they're going to shut it down, said it's news to me, but you know, they, you know with social media. You know, we would go over get updates from fans during the inning, and and we said, You know, the event came and said, Yeah, they just shut down Arizona. And then you know, and then, sure enough when we walked off the field, you know, we got the word that you know That's it. It was done. So I think that was I'm not really sure It was march 7th paint or something like that. I don't know about that. Yeah. Yeah, but there are seven there. 76 Major league umpires, and more than 20 of them are age 55 or older. Jerry Davis and Joe West are the oldest at 67 West State on the job. Of course, he's trying to go after the record for most games ever Umpired, But were you surprised Joe stayed on the field? Well, knowing Joe, I was not really surprised because You know if you know Joe's hat size, it's very large and his head is every bit as hard as as flies, so I wasn't really surprised. But I was concerned for him because You know again. Everything we've heard is that you know, people have no people that are older, more vulnerable. And the last thing we wanted to see, you know, anybody gets sick, and we certainly don't want to see Joe gets sick. But but but he's plugging away if you saw, you know, he got hit in the head with a bat the other day and make up with stitches worked there. You know they took him off the field reluctantly, but I think it was the blood that convinced them that he should leave. They stitched him up when he went back on the field. Yeah. And you heard about this while you had your feet in the sand while you were reading the newspaper on the beach down the shore. Well, I am spending little shine a TTE the beach, but good. You know, I have to say something, but well, I'll tell you if this Was any indication of what retirement is like. I really am not ready for it, and you're gonna stay on the field. But, yeah, there may be some players and managers that are not happy to hear me say that. But This was not my idea of, you know, just again have not used to being on this time of the year and to, you know, be able to You know what I put the TV on and I just flip around and see how the guys are doing, but I think it's It's strange, because when you watch it on TV, no, they pipe in some some background fans noise. Right on the field. It has to be heard Strange to be able to hear. Everything in the dugout and you know, the only thing I could say it's close to my experience was being in a minor league spring training camp and on a cloverleaf field where there were really no fans at all and You know, it's just it's different. You know, everybody works on the adrenal in the empty energy and without fans in the stands that's missing. And I was going to ask you were with Phil Cousy on Ed Randall's Talkin baseball who is spending his first summer away from the field after 35 years. What conversations have you had with the guys that are out there? Still working? You know, I keep in touch, and I say, How's it going? I asked them and you know, for the most part, the reaction of the same and you know, they all say the same thing. If this is really crazy, so because don't forget your way, we're creatures of habit. And our There's nothing that is in our wheelhouse is that the guys are doing now They're travelling on team charters. I don't think I don't think any umpire has one commercial slice this season and so there on commercial there on the charters. There, I guess from the airport to the hotel because they're saying team hotels there are on this number before. Yeah, So you know, they say this is the This is the craziest thing that I've ever experienced and Are they Are they drive into games like they did in the minor leagues. You don't that they're driving for cities that are close enough to drive. You know, New York Philly Washington Baltimore. Yeah, so so when they contrive they are and when they can't there on the chart Ah, yet for the umpires and fans have to understand how much the umpires loved the game. This is really a noble stand by you guys staying away from the game that you love and forgoing a season in order to ensure your health and the health of those around you. Yeah. You know it was, you know, leading up to it. There were. There were certainly more questions and answers and we didn't know they did. So you know, the medical team didn't really know how it was going to what it was going to look like..

"And we we've also lost. Tony Taylor. Um, I wanted to talk for a moment about somebody who came on this show. On April, the 15th 2007 out of the K F W B in Los Angeles. That day. I was I was working in Los Angeles to cover that afternoon. The 60th anniversary celebration of Jackie Robinson's entry into Major league baseball and to, uh dramatically pay tribute to Jackie Robinson. The great Pete Hamill came on my show. And I had I got to know Pete through the years, and it began on November 6th, 1992 show number 2 60 a television. Siri's hold Ed Randall's talking baseball that gratefully some of you may be many of you watched, and we would find a producing twice as many as 260 shows. And into HBO studios this day walks to the greatest journalists of our time. He'd Hammel and Jack Newfield. You see from time to time, The show would welcome not only those who were the who's who of baseball, but people from other walks of like acknowledged to be baseball fans like Bill Murray, former minor league outfielder Mario Cuomo, the former mayor of New York, huge Yankee fan Rudy Giuliani, and the sole reason that I had Newfield And Hamel on the show. To spend 22 minutes of content, which was to tell just one story on Ly one. And the story is this. They go out to dinner one night. And Jack Newfield had been working for the village voice, and he'd been doing 10 worst. Siri's 10 worst landlords, 10 were superintendents. 10 worst public servants. Whatever. So the waiting for dinner. And one says to the other. Hey, let's make a list while we're waiting for dinner of the 10 worst human beings. Ever in the 20th century to ever walk the Earth. And so they take a moment and they write under napkins and and Jax is to beat. What do you got? And and they both had the same three names Hitler, Stalin and Walter O'Malley. And because Pete never free gave O'Malley for moving from moving the Dodgers, and that was the sole reason tohave among the show and the way they told the show. I'm I'm in hysterics full and out of the chair on the set. Now, some years later. I was asked to be the play by play voice of the newly minted Brooklyn Cyclones, who had just moved down from Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and I was told you have the latitude to bring to your side as a color person. Anybody you want. I thought this was really this was really nice is in the wake of Harry carry passing away and they would have different people come to Wrigley Field to sing the national anthem is, you know so I ive I've got, uh Omar Minaya and Bird Sugar one game and Rudy, Julie Anne and I reach out to Pete. And Pete Hamill says yes, and he comes down to what was then Keyspan Park, and he does. He does the game with me, and I spent the game in awe. This is Pete Hamel. After the final out, we walked over to Nathan's tohave, our a postgame spread, And here he is, we're we're standing by one of the picnic tables on Surf Avenue, and he's and he's talking about having dinner with Katharine Graham's house, the publisher of The Washington Post and stories about the Kennedys. This is the guy that I read on the subway. The Babe Ruth of columnists who wrote of this city, like No one before or since, and wrote with a grace and elegance is if he was writing for you and for me. And he inspired this kid from the Bronx to take a shot at journalism. I'd call him from time to time and in the manner in which he spoke to me on the phone. His turns of phrase came so naturally I wish I could have written down what he said to me. He was so kind and generous to me. I will never forget my time with him. I am so thankful I had the chance to meet and know the great Pete Hamill. Back with you after this..

"And Joe is in Colonia before we close it out on Ed Randall's talking baseball, Joe, Thanks for your call. Hey, thanks for taking my cool. I have a quick question for you. I want people talking about how this baseball season is tainted, which I don't see how it is. Everyone's starting off with the same record. I know what which I know the raise and the Reds are kind of like sleepers for people, which I think is good for the game. It's just I don't see what this is a tainted season. If you could. I don't know if you agree or disagree, but You know our opinion on that? I think just from a historical perspective, Joe. It's 162 games. It sets it apart from any other sport 162 games in 183 days. It's the slog. It's the It's the day in day out, go into the bright spark, strapping it on and playing, and we don't have that and we don't have that this year. But also I hear a lot of times during the regular season before this all happened. People sit there. Say, Well, Chief factor 100 games that we know who the best team is by now, so I mean, it's kind of you know, you know, I don't know. I just don't see it. I would be tainted season. It's Well, we do what we're going to see this year and then you just brought it up the Cincinnati Reds and I wouldn't look at them so much as a dark horse, and that's so that's really something there with it with them. And in Milwaukee in ST Louis and the Chicago Cubs, they're right. They're a good club and they've ended are really terrific Pieces in Woodstock is Nick Castellanos, and so on, uh and and that's what's going to make this exciting and unique defect that they are all starting at zero in late July. And it's and if a guy is out with an injury on goes on the 10 day I yell in the 60 our season. That's huge. So the rest of the employees of the implications of injuries are somebody God forbid, being sidelined by the virus or or symptoms. It changes everything, and we've never had that in base in baseball, in the sense that 162 games is the ultimate test. Right, And the reason I like this set up now is because it's to meet every team is in the home stretch game is very important. I know that I don't know if I'm correct it up. But some during the regular season, coaches will talk a barrel. You have a 10 game. Or if you lose 10 games that were Meaning I'm not meaningless. But you have 10 games. We could foul up and lose. And that shouldn't hurt. Yeah, um, I correct on that or no. Well, I think if a team goes out and has a bad week, this becomes devastating when you multiply it by by three And that's why everything is magnified. Every game is just so much more important than it has been in the past. And from that standpoint, it's going to be very exciting between now and September 27th Joe, Thanks so much for the phone call for us For now, That's the final out of our ball game for July. The 26 2020 thanks for your company. It's been an honor to be a part of your day. I am grateful to so many of you good people who care enough to listen and be in touch. And I am in your debt. Our appreciation to James Norwood to Dr Mark Hamilton, Gary Cohen, Jim Callis, Brian Snitker, Mike Sirotka and you for consideration extended to this show. This broadcast has been aided and abetted by our producer engineer Connor Green, who's done a terrific job this morning as a great earning horrible once said. I think I've done all the damage I could do. Please note no animals were harmed in the production of this broadcast, nor any special effects used.

"To Ed Randall's talking baseball, uh and and it's time to bring in the visiting manager on Ed Randall's talking baseball who's Braves team 1 97 games last season. And its second consecutive division championship. He spent 20 years managing in the minor leagues, and this is his 44th season, the Braves organization and we're especially grateful the habit. Given that his game is not until tonight. We welcome back to the big show Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker. Great to have you on the show. Thanks so much. All right. Good to be here, man. Always good to talk to you and you to 97 wins last year, And in a season of uncertainty, there's one thing we can be certain about Brian, You're not gonna win 97 this year. Yeah, I know. It's a little different, a little different. A cz. We talked, and but we're all I think really Just glad to get this thing off the ground and playing ball again. Before we talk baseball. You got to talk about your your living accommodations and and what it's like for you being in a New York hotel. What? What's it like jealous? Hilleary. Actually, I was down. Went down the lobby today and, you know, it's usually like just crowded and there's nobody there. There's a couple of bellmen and one lady working the desk and I was talking to visiting with them and You know, went out. Got a little coffee. We're We're really not supposed to be leaving the hotel a lot, but because it was later game they bring, you know they bring their you're you're Breakfast brunch. Whatever it is, put it outside your door. That's how we eat our meals. Um What kind of a good way to get a cup of coffee went out and just went up the block, and it was really weird. Walking the street for That block. Okay. So you can go. You could go bowling on Madison Avenue. You could go bowling in times Square. You can go bowling on Fifth Avenue and not hit anything. No, no, That's the thing. You look out your window here and just, you know, even on Friday morning, I mean, I know what you know. Usually you see a yellow on The cab's in the Duncan and all that. It's really not a limited foot traffic and limited cars and It's different. It's different. It's good, you know, treat that's unbelievable here at the hotel and you know, everything is hate. And I just don't know it just for the next 30 days that you have in the hotel, you know, on the road. Just be a little different, but it's free to roam like you normally would. Right, afterthe only three hits and 15 strikeouts in the opener as the great philosopher L. Peter Barrow. One said. It ain't over till it's over. And it wasn't that the case yesterday. Like you know, you strike a little apron. You know, just going down in another good ballgame. I mean, you know, we were down 2 to 1, and you know a well played game again. You know, that's a really good pitch in and you know, we're just start. Guys never quit. OK, that's been their mantra for the last three years. I mean, it's never out of the game and that I used to tell people in the land. It's like you don't want to leave. Before the seventh inning. We're like an end game. Nothing happens till the you know the final quarter for the final third of the game. So you had more comeback wins. I think since 2016 than any club in baseball Yeah, So I mean, it's like I say the fight guys Unbelievable. They love to compete, and you know they're 15 full of baseball rats. They enjoy going out doing all the little things that you know they join each other. It's it's It's really a fun group. Um, I want to mention this An hour ago. I had Dr Mark Hamilton on the show. He wasn't Dr Mark Hamilton when he was playing for you in Gwinnett and Triple Triple A. You changed his life by releasing him. Oh, hammer. Yeah, I'm proud of him. I mean, that's often what he's doing and what you know, with his life and you know, really happy boy. You know, it is a great good story. Good for him, and you know, it was kind of love following the former players, man, It's It's good. I bet And this morning. You love that new rules starting each extra inning with a runner on second base, don't you? Well, they they asked me about after the game, but I was like, Oh, I guess I gotta like it now. It's different. I don't know. You know, Donna Walt. I had a lot of conversations over the last three weeks of how we handle that Where we You know, I guess or it's going to be where we are in the lineup. I given talk to some of the guys in the minor leagues that have experienced this before, And it almost seems like you know what teams did. I mean more about, you know, like when you put that one guy on its multiple runs being scored, you know, they ended up with the winning run at the plate and So it's you know, hopefully it's It's something that I gotta say we'll come out on top. I don't know. I mean, it might be tough, but, you know, you know what I mean. There's not a lot of things that were going to go through. This summer that you know it might be things for that, you know, changes in the game and make it better. Well, e. I think on at first blush, we would look at this in a normal season, Brian and go what you want to do what? Ah, but this year Ah, given the outside forces baseball becomes a laboratory for trying trying out new things. Yeah, no, I mean, you know it might be and that you know, we have three weeks of spring training, and I think it's probably a good rule to try and get the game's over. Just because of the The stress that you don't want to put on a pitching staff and especially as we're getting these guys You know, acclamation, the real.

"Join us it fans for the cured dot org's back with the Buck Showalter and lots of calls. But just to talk about your experience that unusual day in Baltimore in 2015 after the 1st 2 games were postponed due the riots. And the final game of the series was moved from night. Today You beat the white taxes. I mentioned 82 No fans. Chris Davis. It's a three run home run in the first inning, and you said it sounded like a home run in batting practice before they opened the gates. But but it was amazing how quiet it was book. There was something kind of attractive, though at about the Puritans of the competition. Anybody been in the dugout knows that there's these calm. Sweet nothings better thrown out that maybe the people who dug out from here but the whole world on Brother team and sometimes the umpires can't quite hear. But we found out those sweet nothings couldn't been couldn't be used The whole welcome period. You could hear very thorn and Jim Palmer talk and you could hear the conversation in the in the preference. I may it was It was different. It was different, but I once again I really felt good about our club himself Started T but you were talking about earlier and the discipline. You know, they just had a yeoman like approach to it. It was it was. It was going to watch that point. You had to be careful what you say The guy in the dugout. Ah, Are you the guys on the bench? Because everyone could hear made. You had to be careful about what you said around around the umpires because they could hear everything. You know, they've been talking so much about one of my players up, Bring in the sounds of the game. Well, that's what I've kind of found it Strange when they were putting the crowd murmur. And why, if they didn't do that, the fans could hear everything they were, so it'd be very easy to pick up. Yeah, and he didn't use the bullpen phone that day. I heard Oh, no, I'll do it step to the top and yell. Oh, are you bringing up even if it was easy, but it definitely wasn't something I wanted to continue if you've ever been in extended spring. Structurally. That's what Gulf Coast Lee game. Yes. Oh, yeah. He was Ryan in Bronxville for Buck Showalter and Ed Randall's talking baseball hire Ryan. Thanks for the call. Hey, Thanks for taking my call. Give me the honor to speak to Mr Showalter. Yeah, A big mess You've met and talked was my number one choice for manager. I wanted it so bad I would compare it to when the Rangers occupied brought in my kid and I know I wanted Buck to having Wellard ride through the canyon, the heroes I'm hoping that's so one day you'll be able to do that. I have a question about the ownership of the Mets. So Iran coming out and talking about a salary cap. I thought it was private, unwise move at this time. The negotiations Against Steve Collins and the Wilpons for buying the teeth. How did he start talking about salary have at this time when you know what do you think about that, Mr Walter? Well, it's a subject matter. Hi, Ryan. Thanks for the kind words and I really like the past that the manager for the Mets followed you Look at his background. Police say who I think was a very quality manager. You look at his work has been in the minor leagues, Planets trade. He's done this, but everything you do to prepare your resume for managing the bigwigs. And you know, I looked at my half a long time ago. It reminds me a little bit. I'm impressed with his background and I think he's going to do a good job. I really do met fans. I like the way he You read, so speak on what he presents himself. I'm not going to get into my personal opinions aside for everything. I don't think, Alex. Necessarily minute that way, Something might say, why else would you have taken it? Obviously, Alex to tell you the system was great for him. It was great for him and how But I think the base but he was just kind of pleading not pleading. But asking for, you know, Kind of like what we talked about earlier. How much is enough? You know if I was our players, they haven't asked me I'd be more concerned about a floor that a feeling You know I would give them some type of huge ceiling, but I wouldn't want to bring the floor up. I was with some of these clubs that are so called tanking and playing and playing that 60 $70 million payrolls. Um and really taken revenue sharing in a lot of ways put in their populations there. Federal Getting those people upto safe, $100 million war. No, Let's worry about the floor instead of the cat. That's the way I feel about it. To Elliott in, You know, it's funny. You mention that because I I remember speaking to a union official during our nuclear winner of 94 95 buck and he was talking and he was saying here they want and it was all about establishing a salary cap. But he said, You know what? We don't want a salary cap. But then again, we don't want a floor. We don't want to floor either. Just let one free market let it let it breathe. I think the problem is the competition, and people have seen the benefits of going extra low so that you can kind of refurbished. So to speak. I think so. Most things that can survive maybe They're in cities in America that might be able to present our game better. Who knows? To Ah, Mike and Fresh meadows on Ed Randall's talking baseball on the fan, Mike, Thanks for your call. Thank you. How you guys doing? Big fan and I just like Sorry. I just wanted to address the fan thing. Just to be techie about this. They're piping is like video game noise now, but with an application, they pipe in people's noises as a collective Justus. Fans in the stadium, all the fans at home using an app. Would there sounds could be type in as a collective, which would be I think better, then sake, noise. It would be really people watching the game on TV. The fan noise in their house piped into the stadium as a whole, You know, maybe there's 200,000 fans with the application. Come on. That would be a good way to keep the mo mentum off the fan in the game. Oh, my God. I don't know There's some question about whether or not it's needed at all. Sometimes you like to try with nothing, then go the other way. But I kind of liked the idea like someone suddenly Giancarlo Stanton from people that strike out water are probably going to like it because nobody's gonna boot and I'm one thing you can ask. Rose are the happiest people in America. Yes, they are. I think they're trying to eliminate the fact that somebody is walking through the park with no noise. No trying to play the game, but I know it's like to me. It's like somebody that consciously has to be entertained. You know, I could pull up a chair sit out in the yard. And what's the wind blowing the entertained, But they're in today's world. People have this constant need noise, isn't it stimulated? Yeah. Uh, thanks. Here's a Gary in West tamped in. Hi, Gary. And welcome to the fan. Okay, I did. But Hi..

Connecticut for Louise Clemente and ed Randall's talking baseball on the fan rich good morning good morning how are you fine Louise I don't know where to start with your dad I'm an avid baseball fan since I was five years old I'm sixty nine years old today I grew up with your dad playing for the pirates I showed many times at Shea Stadium against about he was always my number one ball player he was my idol I yeah I can't say enough about him what a gentlemen what a fantastic ball player he could do it all shaving Ron who share an inferno aren't showing up people at third base at home plate he was judged strictly amazing and I want to tell you something Louise kids today they they have a lot of ball players that are role models to their your father was a shrew role models I remember seeing films of him with the importer Rico with the little our kids talking to them playing catch with them give him some tips your father was the best and you have to be so proud of him I I just can't say enough about him he's still my article and still my number one ball player sorry I ever saw and baseball the game I love and I've lived it for over sixty years read your thank you so much for the call Louise they're probably a day there probably isn't a day in your life that you don't hear something like that yeah I figure it out I have to tell you definitely a and I and for the most part whoever's got approaches stand and start talking and as you know what you know what you just heard they would usually say I'm and I didn't and that you must be tired **** and never ever I get to learn so much in these fuel for our energy can you his legacy you know so I really appreciate this call and and thank you so much for that here's every can Merrick on ed Randall's talking baseball on the fan Eric good morning thanks for your call good morning gentlemen five tool player five jul union bank I doubt about it condolences from mom the question I had is Bob prince you still are kind of American I would but and called the body I take it that Paul didn't think that too much you know that became really good friends with Bob and when he came in that plan I get to the transfer works but with with Bob friends here we have a problem but it wasn't just lose it wasn't just that ABC the Pittsburgh post Gazette would refer to him as bobber Bobby they they would not refer to him is Roberto and he's not like that at all right now route not brother pulled yet now from the favorite because remember when dad made it two of the pirates yeah you you had a lot of you know Tracy this over there a lot of things that were going on at the time and races of the one that sold the with mom dad and they would kind of like close to him they made it sound like the phonetically all yeah I brought that up right the with the I would write it the way he spoke and he's right at that time in broken English and they would actually have the audacity to put that in the paper yes they will put me no one set of I don't want you know and the others they knew what he was saying but they will phonetically boredom and he did not like that he would he did not appreciate it at all and so imagine at that time all he had to go through and and on top of that I always say the fans are fans for the little they know there's so much they don't know that that you know for the game and obviously for society there was so much that was that was a co founder of mainly basis player's association the first meetings took place in Porter Rico and he was the first player is a wrap he was the first player to rid the send all of merely Basil players through the through the plays association he was very tall you know a lot of people don't know many things he was very active he spoke his mind he he was an activist he you know when it whatever he saw injustice towards any teammates or act or anyone in particular you would say something about it and on like you know a lot of ways that probably they they have to to to swallow their pride and and not do much he would go out there and be on everyone's face about what he thought it was not right he was saying yes when the primordial the king was assassinated he cause for and we calendar to change because he told the team's as we're not playing that they so that would cause you know if you had a triple a fax and that's what I use of the act that as an example of what I call the power of one when you make when you the terminal to get something done if you accomplish it there's gonna be a cause and effect to it and that would not even hesitate about what he thought it was right so all I always say that Basil was a platform for him to get his message across eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six with Louise Clemente and Jimmy is with us from Westchester on it Randall's talking baseball on the fan hi he was one of my favorite song never forget that throw he made from right field seventy one World Series is Baltimore and in the game or most of what I just chalked it up and that that ignited them he was not you never received the credit they deserve remember he played we we during the time that Willie Mays Hank Aaron all Mickey mantle all of them played you know he was he didn't he wasn't in New York he was on a small town but he was absolutely amazing he wasn't treated right by the writers but I tell you one thing he was as good as any in my book and I can't I'm glad that I was able to see him play during my time my my my condolences to your mother thanks so much she hated him wind your father passed away your mother failed Louise the responsibility to do what he was planning to do she said that she was compelled to carry out our husbands wishes and this is so well said not only because of the way he died but because of the way he lived absolutely she and her old spirit he's a very very special person but then obviously when she when she married that in those eight years see also shared that spirit and his notion of what life should be like and humbleness yes that's a great thing that also describe both of them they were very humble they never thought they walked on water the they really fought for NATO inclusion to have everyone like that used to say that was very eager the times where they have to wait for the rest of the team mates to eat in a restaurant they what they have to wait in the bus he says that no one's going to accept this and he will tell his teammates none of you I want to eat the food that they're going to bring back for that restaurant people were not good enough to be served in that restaurant in that was not good enough to be our soul and if the river but we have to we have a I don't care you have to have dignity and I don't I'm not asking to be treated better I'm asking asking to be traded equality right okay so that's that was his fight all all of all these life one of the thing I want to in and we welcome your calls for Louis city seven seven three three seven six six six six one of the thing I want to get it she took an active part in choosing the winner of the Roberto Clemente award which has been given since nineteen seventy three to the player who quote best represents the game of baseball through extraordinary character community involvement philanthropy and positive contributions both on and off the field on quote you she was an integral part of what arguably is the most prestigious award that Major League Baseball bestows every year absolutely that award was really the commissioners award and it only was he was presented two years then dad passed and automatically they renamed it as a river or make the award and mom who died very seriously he would look at every single ball player that was nominated and she would reach back and forth many times you would like yell speaking on the pages and make notes and then she she had to choose three players and and then everyone the commissioner if there was the sponsor for the award originally the CEO of the company would do the same and then for the writers association as well and then they would share compare cool voted which name was way more than once and if there were close call then what you see who in which position where they work first second or third so he was a very moral process people would approach I remember even it was a horrible sight as mother reporter we go through that do you know how much will he go does it is a society as they listened it is a it's not just a family it is a process you choosing who this award winners are there the way I want to contribute to this is a week we're going to create the Roberto Clemente hall of fame and museum in all those players who have been will have one they call maybe a war will be inducted into this museum so we got plans you know further than or were things were left when when mom passed that we're you know on continue to carry on and I've been working on for some several years so now we're talking with some of the software Major League Baseball about where we want to take this so hopefully they will be well received and supported I hope it will be John is down in Maryland for Louise Clementi on WFAN John thanks for your call I thought well Robert I think may have been less candid J. stating I live my remember vividly this guy I never saw anybody when they like like your father what we you can actually liked him going from year to year I remember them and that last game hitting the eighty a triple I remember sitting with my dad and then looking at each other I was maybe ten eleven but you can see the difference in the way that he ran the bases going from one speak to the other end Johnny's thirty eight years old doing this yeah I know we thought it was fun I don't remember it was like in nineteen seventy seventy one may be it may have been honored at that on the field because it may be the last game what if they actually thank you it was almost amazing games that ever sample ball what what John thanks I I I don't believe he would be I don't think he'd be the type of guy Louise I'm just guessing to flip is bad or hit the ball and watch it and not run hollow no no no no he really upset with what goes on today with some of these bad actors you better believe it you know were burnt I my brother and I were watching like that so we will see and and wrote was saying listen he's not even touching the ground thank you hello it's like you know the way here and it was like verily verily his feet with tester ground he just can't you know it was amazing and and that that the fears the the way he he play was so fearful that.

"Ed Randall's talking baseball hi Jimmy thank you for your call yeah hi a I'm glad the that I found you show here on Saturday afternoon this kind of disappointed when when I didn't find you on Sunday morning but the the things you could be here you go again thank you so I wanted to get your opinion I mean I think the message should be going after that when the taxes I mean here's a guy that could probably be added a halfway reasonable price he's got a lot to prove he didn't pitch much at all last year and wait anon yeah I I don't know but the the the story that I heard when it was out of the winter meetings Jimmy was that they've pretty much dropped out of contention there were other teams I know guys I certainly think he would be a valued addition there once he's healthy to bolster that bull pen which is which was a disaster for them this past season band and I think would be great for him the he could stay if you could stay at home would be wonderful but there are other teams that are chase him Tampa Bay wants him reportedly the Minnesota Twins want him he will he will he will get it this is a guy with eight years in the league for all star games aids over six hundred and twenty one strikeouts in three hundred making point two thirds innings who mac this is like Colfax plus with these numbers are just crazy but he's been great for the Yankees thirty one is gonna be one years old the the thing is there's a lot of bad blood between him and the Yankees rain delivering one of the suits over there what was way out of line with them is comments when he went for arbitration I mean I just don't see him going back there well I I wouldn't say that I don't think that bay Dellums gonna hold the grudge be he's got roots here if that's a I I would like to think that that's forgotten I don't think he's holding that against the Yankees I think he would like to come back in a all things being equal and and pitch in the Bronx but we'll see we'll see how this develops thanks so much for the call Kevin here is Dan in Long Island on it rentals talking baseball on the fan hi Dan thanks pleasure to talk to you how do you feel good story of the week before I talk about the hall of fame my my dad was and broke my dad was an avid seal that they check you out that that arrived he was twelve years old so we wanted to be I live I live growing up but all the doctor stories they know every black and white picture of any amorosa noble my dad was in Germany when the Dodgers finally once we get the price that we took when he's coming home they were already leaving so it ripped out of the talks it after retiring he moved down to vero beach Florida and spent fifteen years watch and the Dodgers in spring training would call me up tell me I just spent two hours to sandy Koufax car but Paul if ya like the joy of a child sure then the dot and then the Dodgers left zero beach to go to Arizona to my dad one of two people of the Dodgers left white dot and one out of it now this year the vero beach is now being used I did that without a showcase and high school baseball point I think for the winter right well this went that my son bought the baseball team will go down and maybe my mom will stand might I will say my dad share I watch my some picture that now well what are the greatest that's Embratel story Dan it is my tribute question before Derek Jeter came along only the major league all time leader in two hundred eight seasons on the right hand side of the plate from the right hand side of the plate that's right boy that's not it is not Steve Garvey right now how would how do we have a baseball hall of fame having been a kid in the seventies when everybody want to be Tom Seaver was Steve Garvey or Willie Stargell Yambol how we have all the same well we have a guy with the best player on the team that went to four World Series single handily trade this the other day this the Padres to which has a National League record for consecutive games right with a three hundred and fifty wife calling it a in post season it was a deadly policy that had a two thousand seven hundred some hit the disorder went to the American League for a year and a half because of a DH in when he got the cheap way but he'd want to do that and like I said before Jeter came along for a slow right handed your and I always tell people you know what you wanted fifty home runs meant when you played in the Western Division with the Astrodome right Dodger Stadium at candlestick park in Jack Murphy stadium that made you lost about fifty to fifty over the year Hey at least a I mean it's it's unbelievable that these clay the seventies get overlooked and when you look at Simmons and the guy who made a last time doesn't this great that's the ball I don't know how anyone can even come close again your no he didn't he didn't he didn't come close at all day and thanks so much for the thanks so much for the call it we which just goes to show you how high the bar is to get in there the if there's Garvey we had two local guys that that all of us loved and adored beaten and that is shaking France just ate it you just if people adored Thurman Munson they adored don Mattingly nothing and in Garvey and Dale Murphy and then you can go on down the line and and my favorite speaking of trivia questions nine straight three hundred seasons this guy had nine straight three hundred seasons he had eleven three hundred seasons in in his career three I believe the three oh three lifetime average didn't get three thousand hits eleven three hundred seasons but unfortunately played in the small markets played in Pittsburgh played in Texas played in Montreal played in Toronto played at the end of his career in Philadelphia San Francisco but those really add ons and that's all all over who I who by the way you look Zhai's the great Vera Clementi a week ago Sunday in Porto Rico he's also a minister and you want to talk about the guys who were not in the baseball hall of fame my goodness al Oliver is at the top of my list I want your phone calls on the toll free at eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six is ed Randall's talking

"If you have a lex or Google home just say play WFAN in to be locked into the fan so happy to have you with me and ed Randall's talking baseball get this after the nineteen sixty three season in the National League held a supplemental draft because the Mets and Houston colt forty fives had complained about the quality or lack thereof of the players offer them in the regional expansion draft and that's how the Mets obtained our next guest from the San Francisco Giants back in town this weekend and back on the big show number twenty two Jack Fisher great to have you Jack thanks for coming back on nice to talk to you what was your reaction coming to the Mets from the great giants club with five potential and future hall of Famers maze Makabe simpatia maricella berry what was your reaction and how were you told our records that I went to the mat yeah actually I did get a telephone call from the Mets are made they told me that they had and drafted many from from the giants and the fact that I wasn't able to break into that starting rotation there was a good thing for me so you so it is a great opportunity certain like yeah yeah but they had some problems hello yeah well we're I guess lack of talent at that time but we tried hard I talk about playing for Casey Stengel AT and did they know your name did he call you Jack or Fisher or anything like that exposure of not not too much Jack but you know basically what it what he thought were for the news media and and everything was pretty much a show it was it was a pretty straight shooter when you had your one on one four seasons here thirty eight to seventy three for teams that we're losing a hundred games all the time except in those is sixty six of one of throw parade Jack in sixty six when they go what sixty six in ninety six and they didn't finish last finally that was our goal well I think would be the kind of the the more yeah you beat out the good beat out the cubs in sixty six we welcome your calls for a Jack Fisher on it Randall's talking baseball at eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six you still have so many friends here I really do it is absolutely amazing the whole course most of the people on the sixty nine plus blade well prior to that I was there when so you were in **** McGraw John Jones and all those guys came up to the club so I was you know they're they're all good friends of mine and Eddie Kramer board those you able to talk to him on the phone yesterday really great talking to him great that everything went well in the surgery and so yeah it's a little old home week when I when I get back the stadium when the Mets and the pirates arrived for opening day HA stadium in nineteen sixty four in your the starting pitcher work was still being done there was side that was still being placed down in right field work when it were a wreck thing portions of the outfield fence it's opening day in there guy Lombardo's bands playing on the field it's good with crazy that day tell us about your memories of opening day and she stayed there and sixty four what does that I'd never seen so many people on the field prior to the game starting and and of course when the butcher the starting pitcher warms up usually formed up right in front of the dog out and I will not to try to start warming up and I was afraid I was going to hurt somebody somebody walk between me and the character while I was on the bench and so as the case the if it's alright if I warmed up down the bowl Graham and he said I don't see why not so I did and that started about a trend of then everybody started warming up in the bullpen after that nobody had ever done that before about it but I knew of that I'm glad about it before because I didn't see them why you should warm up on a what ground understood then that and then you went out and you have a good just to get used to to him I know I remember I remember really is a kid watching the Whitey Ford and sandy Koufax warm up it before the sixty four and sixty three World Series in Yankee Stadium in it and and that's the way it was I never I never got that never did either yeah in in what do you remember about that game of course Willie star Julie we all remember hit the first home run it Shea Stadium well yeah people remember that but they don't remember the first strike of today's date into them in the first inning guy Roberto Clemente struck him out for the first drag out for you know so well I like to remember that rather than the home run of course Jennifer Jack Fisher is with this calls for him here's Mary in floral park and it riddles talking baseball Mary thanks for the call your the best it was the first thank you for the first time I went with my dad against the chilly and there was a double play middle of the game it turned it around when the king street you you are the best I always remember you will want to thank you for the best memory ever gone with my dad thank you your your wonderful thank you Jack and I wanted to I never knew how to reach you yeah okay well thanks for the memories I'm gonna run we want to Mary thanks so much for the call she was waiting fifty five years to tell you that Jack it's great Harvey in Dix hills Ford happy happy postal like for you to anyway I got two questions number one I've been looking into an issue the last three years there's been these rumors that the balls of Jews and I did look into the matter I'm not going to go through the whole issue about the ball with the Cork and the rubber possibility in the middle and similar materials and the stitching because I've actually compared it and there is a difference in the ball believe another new ball compared to the old ones my question to you number one is do you think have the did you have the experience that you where you thought of all the Jews do you think maybe thought about whether the balls of Jews now because of all the home runs and the second question is that when I was a kid the bathroom so big I remember Jim Dante about John gente about any other two people to pick up the bat and now he's because it shows us so soon and they they look like little league bats compared to when I when I was a kid what's your opinion that this does he think this that and the fact that the pitcher to delay has affected day in terms of the hitting positive or negative in terms of increasing home runs a decreasing and your opinion about the the choosing of the ball and how would you how would you recognize it as a and when you put thanks sorry very very good question really as far as the way to the bed is concerned probably the best I replaced instead Williams and I know Ted only used about a thirty three but he was never go thirty four it really is seventy dollars eight read go to a thirty oz but before you one of thirty four so dead used a very light bat but you're right some of the guys used up to forty forty two ounces Orlando Cepeda used are very very heavy but yeah and Richard Alan that also yeah yeah but as far as the bulls are concerned I would imagine they have the changed over the years Atari I lose some bottles of Mary the the how to know when five hundred so they were printed used up when I played too well I think that a you've got to give credit to the long and the strength of the guys today man for man they're much stronger than than when we played and of course the cultures are are much stronger too lady laid back when I played you have thrown the ball over ninety miles are you the eldest feeling for the Twain row my goodness level ninety miles an hour well ma'am and most of the canal under Romania it's absolutely amazing so the there it's a different game today Steven Harrington park for Jack Fisher and ed Randall's talking baseball Steve thanks for your call thank you for taking it it's pleasure to talk to you Jack I've been a met fan since nineteen sixty two I was a giant fan before that the Mets came into being who played for the giants of I'm not mistaken for a while yeah yes I did one year the Mets sixty three sixty three and then you came to the mat that's correct yes did you ever play will do Carmel you member do Carmelo sure certainly dead I wrote I remember doing very well yeah can I just tell you a funny story about him if you have over there my white sport is a Die Hard met fan and I asked him how did he become a met fan and he said to me that the first game is father overtook them to your pitching but he said that the do Carmel hit a home run which is probably one of the only one the head that I can ever remember and it never he never forgot it what's so happens that I used to play poker games to Carmel then he retired clicking down in South Jersey now so I called him up one day and exit you do me a favor would you autograph a baseball for me I know nobody's ever asked you before never get out she again and he was like I had bought a booklet Sentinel anyways so honored decided and he said now nobody ever asked me that thanks for thanks so much for the call one eight out of all less than two months after you through the first game at Shea Stadium in April of sixty four may twenty six nineteen sixty four you throw for hitter on a windy day in Chicago well being supported that day by a club record twenty three hits and the Mets win nineteen to one and you probably heard this story Jack the one guy calls another ghost Hey did you hear the Mets scored nineteen runs today the sick guy goes here but did they win I remember a game very well I can remember goods the game

There's no question about it should always getting that antsy feeling yesterday. Would, you know, the message struggle, and I said I want to get and hit. But then you know, so some of that stuff. I was a lot closer to the ball last night. You know, and I'll come and I said, you know, what the good thing. I retired. How did you find out? There was a perfect match. Finally. Well, you know, we had a conversation my wife, and I guess she was a little depressed, and we had a little disagreement in the cautious getting down, and you know, talking negative, and I kinda say what you spirits up. Everything's going. To happen. You can't control certain situations. You know, it's like, you know, when you're playing, you know, if you're not in the lineup, you don't control.

This is the second take on this because he was all set for a transplant from a good friend of his this past January, but it, but it wasn't to be because that person encountered some prostate problems.

Thank you. Thank you so much George in Rhode Island for an crane pool on Randall's talking baseball, George thanks for your call. Yes. Thank you very much. Darya? Wakefield just by Narragansett. Southern Rhode Island. And I worked in westerly. All yeah. Yeah. I'm not twenty minutes off of that. It's anyways applied to get on your show at Brando because I respectfully, but. I mean embryos a ball player. I'm sixty six grew up in the Bronx. Yankee fan. George. But I I moved on nineteen eighty Rhode Island. And but I tell you my daughter went to a transplant couple years three years or so August was on dialysis for years Playa he's done so stairway. I wish it Avesta luck and God's prey on. And I think she's doing wonderful too young, you know, but. Good. We're gonna hang here is Mike in Allendale New Jersey for an crane pool on the fan. Hi, mike. Hey, guys. I just wanted to ask you in seventy three when Willie Mays became part of the team did tell us all fans here what it was like to have Willie Mays. Join your team in the middle of race and into the world. But Williams added a lot of the ball club. Even by his inability to play he was able to to offer things to the young players and would always work with the guys when asked you know, he was not an outgoing person where he ran over into the guys locker room and wanted to talk to him they had to go out and search really out. But when he was there, he he was going to work with guys I travel really blues was good friend of mine when he joined the ball club. I had a lot of fun with him. He was an icon. On. And he was a last of an air. He was the last of of the superstars I feel you know, they throw that that out very easily guys. But he was a five tool player could do everything he cited the ball club. Just by sitting on the bench. You never knew what to expect Willie Mays. You're expected the miracles and he did offer it and try to show us and he played in the World Series of in seventy three and it was sparks of it. But his legs gave out. But you know, what he was Nikon? He was the last of the year. Did he treat you? Well, he did he was great. He would offer everybody anything in his offers in his in his offer in his locker room with the players. He gave everything away. Clipping? Downfalls. Anything really had. You creek his locker, you know, he was not a material person. He was always going to get to the other players. And you know, what he was a superstar? And we love to have one on the ball. And I and I reach out to. Phone number for a while. And you know, he's still involved in baseball guys Arquette watching the Yankees air in and he's gonna turn eight years old. I may say reparation his eyes and not doing too well any struggling a little bit. But you know, what you still up to see him out there. And how about that first game at a new there? We don't run on that Sunday facing Charlie Williams who had been traded by the Mets to the giants. I this. This was theater. It was amazing. You know, he could still rise the occasion. And that was the thing. That's what makes stars great at the at the important times in the World Series the playoffs. You know, key games. They take it rise could still do that. And seventy two seventy three. But you know, what's what's what hurts us is that our enduring memory for so many people is him fallen down in centerfield in Oakland during the World Series. And when you watch the play by play on tape of Kurt gowdy calling it on on the NBC television network. You hear the said nece in his voice, oh Willie Mays his fallen down and the ball alludes him, and it was horrible to see that. Because it really created a blemish on one of the greatest careers ever greatest player I ever saw. But a lot of people here in the New York area who Mets fans remember him falling down in Oakland. Yeah. But he's still able to do it. You know? And I just I don't think you know, Willie and Yogi got law that great. I think you know, yoke to respect him as much as he thought he wanted to be respected Willie. You know, we could have a little bit more out of him at the end, and he just gave up. He just didn't wanna feel work out. You know, he got breakdowns in the training room and stuff like that. But as lakes gave out, but he still wanted to perform, and they would days what he could do it. And you know, what he knew his own limitations? It's just a matter of getting the most out of them. And that's why you'll with done that you we could have won the pennant. If Gill was the manager could have won a lot more pennants could've got more things at a guys. I have a lot more phone calls for you. I can you please stay and take the calls show for you. No problem, but I'm not going anywhere chills. Have egg. And it's a great.

"Today. And if you have a lecturer Google home just say play WFAN and you'd be locked into the fan. Happy to have you with me on Ed Randall's talking baseball last season, the Yankees did the Yankees went out one one hundred games. And yet did not win the American east. They did make the playoffs for were eliminated for the second consecutive year by the eventual World Series champion. A new book takes us behind the scenes of the two thousand eighteen Yankees in inside the empire, the true power behind the New York Yankees from Houghton Mifflin, Harcourt, publishers and north there's Bob Klapisch and Paul seller. Tara and Bob joins us now on Ed Randall's talking baseball, Bob, great to have you. Congratulations on the book. Thank you. I thank you for having me on my pleasure. What was the original premise of the book? And what did you wind up writing? Paul, and I have been friends for many of us policy. Yes. Senior writer at Rolling Stone and a big baseball fan, and it just one day out of the blue contacted me. I I really like the way you write let's have lunch, and our friendship sort of blossomed from there. We always talking about doing a book about the Yankees, a real sort of deep dive, look at what happens behind the scenes specifically with the way, Brian Cashman has transformed the business plan there, and we were thinking of obviously of timing. The book coordinating book with the emergence of this new young emerging dynasty. And we figure two thousand nineteen this season would be the time to unveil that book. But what happened was two thousand seventeen the Yankees almost get to the World Series to within a game the series listen to the Astros, and then last January they acquired Giancarlo Stanton. And there's this explosion of interest in the team. They sold the half a million tickets last January and suddenly people are talking about. Them being the new powerhouse of a bunch of young Rockstars like the Beatles in nineteen sixty four and Paul, and I looked at each other said, you know, what better push up that time table. It's not let's let's write about the two thousand eighteen Yankees. So it became a diary of last season. That's the that's the framework that sits on. But it's really a look at how Brian Cashman does business and Hal Steinbrenner everything that's happened to the Yankees since the George Steinbrenner era today, and it's two different organizations completely different obviously in the business plan and how and how the Yankees do business today compared to twenty years ago pitching impetuous nece is gone. Sure it is. I mean, partly because, you know, Georgia's past and Brian is a different person a different businessman, Hal Steinbrenner isn't much much different person than his father. And the amazing thing is that. Brian was able to completely rebuild the Yankees on the fly without tanking without finishing last like like the like the Astro. I like the Red Sox did it and he's never had a losing season. So finally last January went to Brian could look your story has never really been told here in New York. I mean you've been overshadowed by George buy Joe Torry by Alex Rodriguez by Derek Jeter. And no one really knows who the brain is the brains, and this organization is you bright the very modest guy to come around and say, yes, but I think that obviously he finally did say, yes. And he gave us tremendous access as everyone else in the organization, and that's why this book is such a gem deep deep tissue access. We had a light. We're inside the Kremlin. That's why the book. Clamper is with us. We welcome. Your phone calls for him on the toll free at eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six so book, it really is is testimony Brian Cashman who learned so much from Jean-Michel and basic your co author said to me. Brian rebuilt the Queen Mary. In one hundred games last year. They had never been sellers as we know when he convinced ownership in two thousand sixteen Bob to move Chapman, and Miller and BELTRAN and received a treasure trove of of young talent. And and there was a lot of discussion at the highest levels of the Yankees with regard to whether they should be sellers because this was uncharacteristic. That is true. I mean, the Yankees really are actually should say how wanted it both ways. He understood that the old business model had to go that the older players that they have been collecting for years. It just wasn't working. They weren't get literally throwing away hundreds of millions of dollars a year. So how gave his blessing to? Let's all right. Let's go with the kids. Let's let's see what the farm system can produce. However, we cannot take we always are fans to put a competitive team on the on field, and we are not gonna finish last. We're not going to do with the Red Sox day. We're not gonna do everyone else's done. We're going to win and that's the miracle. Here is the Yankees rebuilt on the fly in two thousand sixteen and immediately gained a dividend from from those moves trading Miller, and Chapman and McCain and BELTRAN all at once they turned around and became a competitive very competitive team, but very watchable fun team in two thousand seventeen if he had his druthers. Bob would Brian have done even more. I think you know, to to balance that I think he I think he got everything he wanted. I mean, that's one that's one of the other factors in the new era Yankees is that George George would often killed traits that Brian and Maine or undermine him for for the forward thinking philosophy. He wanted to implement Brian now has the full blessing of Hal Steinbrenner right away that you never had, you know, fifteen twenty years, but I think Brian wanted to do this back in two thousand and five and six and seven one the end of the Joe Torre had really gone stale. And it was really not a fun team to watch. Right. I think understood that the baseball was changing and the Yankees ended up being one of the last ones to adopt this new business model. Now, the kids are at the forefront of it. And I don't get the sense having read the book that he really enjoyed bringing in people like Kevin Brown, and Gary Sheffield and Randy Johnson. No, no. That was really sort of a wild detour that, you know, it was like a it's. The Queen Mary the Queen Mary. Well, like, I say, I mean, suddenly was one degree off course. And after a couple of years, you realize you're thousands of miles you lost. I mean, it doesn't seem that way. I think one by one. Okay. Let's get this guy. Let's get Randy Johnson. What big name KENDALL Brown amazing stuff? But you put all these players. He's out of town is in New York, which for them is the wrong market. And suddenly, you have a really a group of mercenaries of people who are all pulling in their own direction, not wonder action and Joe Tores effectiveness, which was at its peak in the late nineties in the very early two thousand suddenly by two thousand and four and five and six had lost his way. I mean, Joe Jess couldn't connect with these guys that plus the constant quarreling and friction with George really war Joe down. And it was it was time for him to go after two thousand seven there's no question and George had David Johnson warming up in the bullpen. He did. I mean, it was one of the many times he wanted to fire gel. And you know, what what they wanted the undercurrents is that is that Brian was the one who saved jobs job time and time again, and that the break between Joe, and Brian is that is that Tori thought that Cashman undermine him? And that's what he wrote in this book with conver. Do you know, Brian those two never really recovered from from from that party? I got the sense that the atmosphere in the room with bringing in guys on the towards the end of their careers like the Gary Sheffield's, and the Randy Johnson was reminiscent to me of what they used to say about the Boston Red Sox way back when twenty-five guys twenty-five camps that they were different factions in the room. Oh, there's no question about it. There was there was it was a completely different chemistry. Let's say from ninety eight ninety nine ninety seven to two thousand five and I don't know if George really could appreciate the difference. I mean, he's he's certainly got caught up and seduced by having big names in the room with great careers know statistics on the back of their baseball cards, but baseball, you know, has changed in the sense that it's so much more now about chemistry in the clubhouse. I mean, you can't you can't put together like the old bad Boyd open as from the seventies and used to fight each other literally literally and even even the Yankee clubhouse, you know, the Reggie Thurman split from the seventies. I mean, you can't have that sort of charge atmosphere. I mean players today very much needs to be to be to to to be one together because there's so much more scrutiny and everything gets reported. And social media has really changed the way teams play. The way they interact with each other the way they interact with the press, and you better have a room. You know, that has a good a very healthy emotional environment or else things will come apart quickly the Yankees do have that now. But I think they learned their lessons at at the end of the Tory era Bob Klapisch, along with Paul Seletar has written the inside the empire the true power behind the New York Yankees from Houghton Mifflin, Harcourt, publishers, and we welcome your phone calls for him on the toll free at eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six you're at the park. Like, I am a lot as she gathered material Bob for the book that no one else had did you have to resist the urge to tweet tweet it out. That's a great question. Because you answer is. Yes. I mean, I spent my career being I with with news nuggets are getting on the back page of the post the daily news. And I mean, I understand the value of news. And the impact it can have a big headline. That's what every reporter list for. That's what we go to the ballpark for. It's what we could pay to do, you know? And I've been doing it forever. You know, starting at the post way back when but I I also realized that it was a different job. And I told the players I told Aaron Boone they said, you see that the pack of reporters in the quarter the the corner of the room over there. You know, mobbing somebody math interview, they said those guys I used to be part of that group. I was one of those guys for twenty years, but not this year this year. I'm an author. I'm embedded, and I promise you would you say to me now is not going to be up on the back page of the post tomorrow. And it's certainly not going to be in Twitter, Twitter and thirty seconds. And that really changed the way they interacted with me I told him it's going to be seven months from now. So let's talk about this book is going to be like a presidential election that comes out the year after we explain everything that really happened. And I got such different responses, and the and the dialogue was so much different than than the guys in the pack were getting a net. Certainly it's not I'm not meant to disparage newspaper journalists like I said, I was one of them. The pressures of constantly have to turn out news and make but I really enjoyed the slow pace of being an author. And then the kind of information that I got which normally a newspaper man, or you wouldn't see on the social media on any website. That's what makes this book such a gem. Do you think that the fact that you gave that disclosure provided you with access that you ordinary might not have had? Well, certainly with the players is certainly allow them to to speak to me in a way in a relaxing confidential way. I would come up to the players after they were done with the pack, and I asked what different question was obviously, I was moving at a different pace. And it was just more relaxed and it was easier for them to trust me. And it was a different access with Brian Cashman. That's you know, Eddie, I mean, most of the time Brian does his interviews in a huge pack in front of the dugout right back into batting practice. And you know, he takes eight to ten questions any answers them fully. But it's still a press conference. It's it's hard to get Brian alone. One on one if you do it's one question, and then somebody behind you is waiting for his one on one. And you never really sorta hit bedrock with him, and that's by design, but with Brian Paul and I met with him four times during the season each time in his office for about an hour, hour and a half. That's just a different kind of QA. The the information that comes from that kind of interview with that setting. It's obviously much deeper and much more comprehensive. Bob, stay with me because we wanted to talk about one of the centerpieces of your book, which is his Brian's relationship with Derek Jeter. Bob Klapisch is with us on Ed Randall's talking baseball, he's written along with Paul torus inside the empire the true power behind the New York Yankees. We welcome..

"And if you have Alexa, Google home, just say play WFAN do be locked into the fans. We're talking baseball on the fan. Everybody to Ed Randall's talking baseball your calls this entire hour about Tom Seaver, just some thoughts sin things that I'd like to talk about with regard to him. Several years ago in our champs ski was referencing. This that Tom begin to recognize it. He's having difficulty with his memory. And there was a day when the head of his vineyard men who supervises the vineyard. Came into Tom's house, and Tom didn't know his name. And he thought he, of course, recognized that later as a terrifying experience, and that maybe he had suffered some sort of a stroke or something and began to understand that Lyme disease can also affect memory, and it was a very very difficult. Very very very difficult time for him. He withdraws from public life pretty much the way Jim Belton has who wrote I still believe the greatest baseball book ever ball for. And he was at the sabre convention. Jim Belton was a year or two ago, which I had the privilege of emceeing a panel about Casey Stengel, and Jim was up there with with his wife, and she said, I'm here to fill the potholes when Jim stumbles, and in doesn't remember and Bowden also so much more than just baseball about. Tim Bowden as with as with Tom Seaver? It's amazing. When you think back to how unlikely it was that the Mets would have Tom Seaver, given the fact that while he was a student at USC, he he was recruited scouted by Tom Lasorda. And that he was going to sign he there was a contractual agreement for him to sign with the dodgers. And then the Commissioner's office set aside that deal and said, no we're going to put his name and a hat and only three teams of there were twenty then only three teams put their names in that hat. The Atlanta Braves Philadelphia Phillies in the New York Mets, and they picked out the Mets name and Tom Seaver was. Became a became a New York met. I'm walking underneath Shea Stadium, which I had done hundreds and hundreds of times as a reporter. In two thousand I believe and it's it's early because I'm always at the ball yard early. And. Walk in the other way Seaver now I had been doing my television show since one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and it's him and me, and I walk up to when I go look enough with this. I said you gotta come on. And do my show. It was for those. Who may not know? It was an interview show. It was like the Charlie rose show absent sexual harassment. But it was. I'd like to think a show with a an intelligent conversation with the beginning a middle and an end. And I said look Tom by you gotta come on. And but we can't do one show 'cause I can't possibly encapsulate your life in nineteen or twenty minutes. Whatever we got left with the bells and whistles and the commercials and the whole so fine. So he he comes in. And and that really began my my relationship with him and on the show he talked about. And I don't know if you've ever heard this before he talked about how we used to go out in the yard as a kid in play with his imaginary, friends, George and Charlie and and then I had him tell the story about as a rookie in Anaheim where the also nine hundred sixty seven all star game was he's coming into pitch. It's one one in the top of the fifteenth inning. And Tony Perez is at the plate for the Cincinnati Reds and catfish hunter's on demand for the Oakland as a very young catfish hunter and Tony Perez hits the ball out of the ballpark to give the National League a two one league, it's an American League venue. So we've got to play the bottom of the fifteenth. There's two pitchers left in the National League bullpen this. Tom Seaver, a rookie and this clogged hosting and Seaver tells the story that he gets the call and he's walking in and he goes past Pete Rose's playing who's playing second base and rose says to him. Hey, are you nervous? You're nervous. How pitch and you can play second base typical kinds of stuff that Pete Rose would say, and he goes to the mound and in this he referred to it on the show. I reached my office. We all here. Seaver saying that the leadoff hitter is Tony niggly arrow. A month before the tragedy that befalls him and of aero flies to left field. You stream ski is up next. And he is in route to the triple crown and Seaver just now he's got a nursing a one run lead. He walks you stream ski, and he says on the show it this way. I knew where is tricky was. He was at first base. And he couldn't hurt me there. Then it's Bill free in the Tigers catcher. He gets him to fly out to center field. Then Ken berry. The White Sox outfielder bats for catfish hunter and Seaver strikes him out in front of his entire family and. He also told the story on the show about going to a Cleveland Indians. Tryout I believe in winter haven Florida through eight pitches, that's all just eight pitches. And they said, thank you very much. And that was the extent of the relationship between Tom Seaver and the Cleveland Indians he goes into the Mets system. They start them at AAA. He's Jacksonville with the Mets at that time have their their AAA farm club. And he goes twelve and twelve and then he comes up in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven and pitching for west westrom. He does not start opening day. Nineteen sixty seven minutes have never wanted an opening day at that point. And they start Don Cardwell who they've gotten from the Pittsburgh Pirates for Dennis ri- band. And they started Cardwell the veteran and then Seaver pitched the second game and went on to have a terrific year. Winning the National League Cy. A young award sixteen and thirteen for team that went sixty one in one hundred and one and had twenty seven pitchers, and then they fired westrom. They put salty Parker into finished the season. And then they went out and got Hodges. I've got a lot more to talk about. But I'm anxious to hear your calls on the toll free and we start with one down to Florida Ned wrangles talking baseball one good morning. Thanks for your call. How are you? Well, thank you. Thank you. First off I lost my dad pancreatic cancer. Although it's not calling but scattered all the same. So I appreciate what you do. And I'm sorry. Thank you. Thank you. Well, am I a quick story my first glove and the child was a autograph Ron Santos glum? Now, I know that does a great third baseman. But every time I I was Tom Seaver. Imagining pitching Jerry grody number fifteen my favorite catcher growing up at the Mets fan. I Opie still with us. And every time I every time, I, you know, my father was back in jersey, and we had the basement apartment, and we just don't get a tennis ball and just throw it against the wall and dumps eve- every time. The last time I saw her in person was a nineteen eighty three summer nineteen eighty three against the Philly. Fever. He got on base. I don't remember for the Walker ahead on first base defending was none other than Pete Rose to the most baseball players in history right next to each other. The next batter. Got a base hit. And all you saw before. I forget. Get. Predated Ron bass Baffour bring a jacket and make sure that they warm, right? You don't see that? I mean. And sure enough he had the big blue ours with the big NY on the jazz and the next batter got ahead, and all you saw was hustle hustle from. We're talking nineteen Ninety-three. It wasn't a young man either. Right. And I mean. Towards the tail end. And he just went all out. And I'm saying how remember this day for the rest of my life. You know, that was the last time I saw and I'm devastated by the news what he's going through have prayers in that I've worked for him and his family, and hopefully this won't be a difficult of firm. I mean, I it's difficult enough. Just realizing the truth of the matter. We all know what dementia is and what it does the people, and I can only say prayers for him and his family a I'll. I'll miss one. Thank you so much. Thanks so much for the call this radio show began on March sixteenth two thousand and three in counting shymanski sham skiing hour ago. We've welcome two thousand six hundred nineteen guests my first show. Ed, Randall's talking baseball on March sixteenth two thousand and three featured Tom Seaver, I had called him and told him it would mean so much to me if he could be my first guest and also on that show was Robin Ventura and Phil Niekro and he was gracious enough to do that. Now, many many years later. I've got a podcast at MLB dot com. And. I called Tom Seaver and said I'd like you to be my first guest to mean the world to me. This is now a very different time. And a in the sense that Tom is going through this slow motion disease that is affecting him. And he said, yes, I'll do your podcast, but you're going to have to call me a few times to remind me, which I thought was strange. But of course, I'm going to do that. And I did and graciously. He came to the phone on the appointed time when I had studio time, we did the interview not talk about baseball talked about his wine business at the end. There was a little bit of baseball. And he was really nice about it. I. Had him on my television show. I later wrote his book unpublished, unfortunately because there were problems at the publishing house the working title was memories of the game. And it wasn't about Tom. It was about we got a list I made up a list of seventy five guys to tell their stories of baseball from their earliest moments. And I submitted the list to Tom it said, tell me what you think are there people here that you would like to emphasize that you'd like to see in the book, maybe there's some people he told one in the book, and he gave me free, creative rain. And so I- interview Robin Roberts, for example, and Robin Roberts tells the story about as a kid growing up in Illinois the best baseball player in his neighborhood in the nineteen thirties. Growing up in Illinois was a girl, and we had a wonderful. Collection of stories from their earliest times. And he was gracious enough. Tom was to say when the book comes out of your welcome to have your name on it. Tom Seaver with with Ed Randall..

Were you there for his imperfect game in July of nineteen sixty nine with Jimmy Qualls? This sixty nine in seventy three postseasons we've freezing. At Shea Stadium during the seventy three World Series the nineteen th strikeout game in the afternoon. I was working for a drugstore delivery boy after a after school that afternoon in April when I was listening on my transistor radio to Lindsey, Bob and Ralph back then doing both radio. I don't even know if the game was on television. When he struck out the one thousand nine hundred eighty ago Padres, the last ten in a row, and there were those shadows behind him. He didn't need the shadows. He he was just ungodly that day. We were there that day. We were you there when he came out about this after the trade the trade one of those seminal moments, right?

Thanks so much for the thanks so much for the call Kevin in Long Island on Ed Randall's talking baseball on the fan. Kevin thanks for your call. Thank you, always a pleasure to talk with you. And I gotta say I was hoping to get a chance to talk to our chance. I had on a a white napkins paper napkin, his his autograph. I think Jerry grody back in the day. And. Yeah. That was it. I just create a couple of plays, you know. But he was a good a good left handed hitting rightfielder for us. When he came here did some pop that was important in the whole development of the teams naturally when Tom Seaver came. He gave us the credibility. That was so lacking in this Vega. Bond organization at the time, and what's he twenty five and five. Twenty five twenty five or seven and sixty nine. Five at seventy I thought. Okay. But I mean, he was just hear the statistic that that. Oh, I can't that you had two hundred in eight canes of seven innings of one hundred ball. I mean, that's like off the chart and also at that at that time, Kevin as you remember they were always scratching for runs, and what would have been like if he had had even a modicum of say Cincinnati or Pittsburgh's offense behind him him in Kouzmin and Jim McAndrew always pitching their hearts out. And it was tough for them to get three runs out of the offense. How many games they lost two to one or got shut out because. Going against guys like Gibson and marriage shell I mean, no Nashville twenty games in a row. He won five straight Indians. Gipps in one of the top guys. You Don dry dog and his name, you know. Something else. It was about colefax to tough leaks. But the thing with Tom she. But you know, she recalled back, you know, with his day of cable that we have and so much media and stuff. They had kindness corner headed and you have Tom Seaver on at the end the double header after twelve hours hour day day. Right. He's there. Nobody's now. He was a lively funny. He was he was a a good natured guy record guy. He was. His wife, Barbara is that her name, Nancy. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. She she was always, you know in the picture to family. I know is great. Kevin. Thank you so much for the best. And I wish everybody to things that listening in. I wish is health, and I wish to safety everything else. We could work out. Amen. Kevin. Thank you so much. Thank you so much for for that I- Jeff in valley stream on. Okay. Said Jeff on the screen. Sorry. Joe? Go ahead. I got three personal things about Tom Steven one when he hit that home run. And what team of was and said on the scope like your seven hundred fourteen behind Hank Aaron. Yeah. Number two and twenty twelve he met a stands for the you know, talking about the all star game in twenty thirteen which is very nice along with Ed crane Poole and number three. When he pitched against Bob Gibson that game was up within two hours. Right. That's all. I remember. Yeah. I can't imagine the pitching coach coming out to get either. One either one of those two guys Joe after after one hundred pitches just imagine that. Yes. Yeah. Thanks my crowd. Thank you so much for the call taking your calls about the franchise at eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six Vernon in Manhattan, Vernon thank you for your call on WFAN. Hey, how you doing my time? Tom Seaver matter of fact, I'm a whole season ticket holder in the off net. I'm Tom Seaver several times in different meetings assurance and things as a plan. Having autographed baseball from him. He put on there. H O F H O P put three eleven right. That's never a wheelchair. Yeah. I wrote a time when he hit that home run when he hit the home run. He came back to the dugout and all the players like maybe did anything say. He put his hands on his hips. Looking at. I remember that. Well, about Tom Tom was his pitching when he pitched is lower body, but go so low to the ground the dirt would get on his knees, right? And he will push up with his upper body beside the baseball back, then there was no such thing called pitch count. It was him pitching strong game. Tom Seaver having nice day to Vernon thanks for the thanks for the call. Sal is in Aberdeen New Jersey on it. Randall stuck in baseball as we take your memories of Tom Seaver, Sal, good morning. Hey, how you doing? Okay. I think I'd like to say is. I appreciate listening to you. And I love your knowledge and appreciation became a baseball. Like, very kind of. Thank you. My remember of of time was I I remember being with thirteen in nineteen sixty nine and I remember playing little league and always trying to get that dirt on my on my knee. Right. Yep. Everybody tries to do that. And he was just a just such a professional, and he just like you said if they would have any sort of hitting you know, he could have been at thirty game win. I think more than one time. And it's just a shame that, you know, the Mets didn't do the right thing when they opened that stating up in two thousand nine they should've at that point. They should have had that statue for him. When you do that first pitch to my PR and unveiled it then. Was that was an an unforgettable day in that believed that was the next to the last time, Sal that he came to city field base Shea Stadium. More city field out when. What a what a weird day that was I believe the Mets had been eliminated in that game on Sunday. And now everybody everybody's gonna stick around for the closing ceremonies with him in Piazza and the doors open in centerfield and out they come and everybody's in a really bad mood right devastated because the Mets are going home. And that was the next to the last time that we saw him at the ballpark because he did come to throw out the first pitch prior to the two thousand thirteen all star game. Right. I remember. I I grew up actually I'm in jersey, and I grew up in massapequa Long Island. Ed crane Poole in Amityville had a restaurant bar called the dugout. Quite frankly, quite frequently. You would you know cream full? You would see their buddy Harrelson would be that. You know, I think Sam was probably they're also occasions that my father used to be a beverage truck driver..

"How are you? My friends. I'm fine. How are you? Dave, very well. Thanks. I'm glad that you're back in this timeslot. Thank you. I I have a question for you. I'm a lifelong Baltimore Orioles fan and last year, you know, how to nowhere. You know? I expected us to compete, and, you know, come to find out that you know, it was bucks last year. And we were in transition. What are you saying this year? You know, we're going to have a new manager obviously candidate team compete. Are we going to take our lumps in just be a rebuilding team this here? Thank you. Dave. It's going to be a long road. No, they're not going to compete, and they're not going to compete for a few years. This is a team that has had an owner who I'm told is incapacitated. The first problem with with that is. Month had a great expression the fish stinks from the head. And in a for a lot of people who wanted to do business with the Baltimore Orioles. Who did know who to talk to because it was indecision amongst between the the sons of the owner about what direction the team should take the owner didn't think it was important to invest money in scouting and development. Imagine this. The Baltimore Orioles who really invented that. Didn't they around the sixties with with Lou Gorman, a young John holts in cash, and Harry Dalton all these incredible people Tom Giordano, and they did they did not do that. In addition to which most importantly, they did not invest in the international baseball community. And that's where the future of the game lies. So now, the Orioles are where they are with a farm system. That is not very good. It's gonna be a long road here. But. Now with the imposition of the new manager the new general manager who is skilled in analytics that trying to get the Orioles up to speed and they're going to take their lumps this year. They're going to be a terrible ballclub. They're still saddled with Chris Davis contract, and they brought in Alex Cobb, and that didn't work out for them gave him a lot of money. They're going to have problems but down the road, perhaps they'll be competitive pitas in New Jersey on Ed Randall's talking baseball. Hi, pete. How you doing it? Great to talk to you first time long time, q. I like to talk about that game. You were talking about the crane pool. I I didn't hear it because I got up too late. But I might opinion that sixty nine games Jimmy Qualls game. I think that was the day the Mets really were born because she had sixty thousand people their favorite or the new star. The new all stars trolling a perfect game. Her almost for overnight innings while Danny right and. It was going on there. Forget it. I think that's when the metro born from their Jerry Cousteau and the next day at twenty hits. I think he hit the third baseman, Ron Santo. Yeah. There was Bill hand started that game for the cubs right into. He went out to the man and winged one right at Tommy head. Yeah. So that set the tone and Kouzmin hit Santo so hard that Ralph Kiner said he heard him get hit in the press box. Wow. In a stadium full of people. And there was no love lost there that was really bloodlust between those two teams. But certainly it is to be said that that was one of the great seminal moments in this series of seminal moments that was in July. And then crazy things happened after that p. Then the black cat, of course, later in the season, Pete, thanks so much for the thanks so much for the phone. Call. It was just an amazing amazing summer. And I was I'm so glad that I was old enough to enjoy one of the great summers of my life to be able to watch to watch all of that unfold. Here's fill in the car on Ed Randall's talking baseball on the fan. Hi, phil. How you doing it to me? Jacob degrom doesn't have a leg to stand on. I mean, if he's got feed that should be with his union reps and his play rats. This was collectively bargain. Do not have to pay him. Why would they pay him at his age and then a year from now he blows out his arm? Now, what is going to be? They won't feel sorry for the Mets. You know, they'll take checking on bright cannot pay him. All right. Well, Phil we're going to see how it we're gonna see how it plays out. All all I can say is that with regard to the prospective negotiations between the Mets in the in the pitcher. The idea that the pitchers camp would say, well, maybe he has to protect himself and take himself out of games does night strike right at the heart of the integrity of the game of baseball. Get can't my God. Can you imagine something like that? Hello is only hurt his marketability by doing that. Well, it's just filled. Thank you, just like many dislike Manny Machado, did the keys didn't have to bring Machado to interview. It was there in the showroom. Okay. The showroom was Tober. The most important at bats in this guy's life. And we also what what unfolded what do you need to interview them? No. This is what it is. Rick is down in Tampa, Florida for on Ed Randall's talking baseball. Hi, rick. How are you? Yes. I am down here. Sunny, spring training working away. You know, you made reference to retaliate grab on your giant. Yes. My mom was born in Naples. Trying to take a random factor. Your appetite. Have you back on? I remember when your last show last winter. And it's like I'll be back. In fact, are now here we are February. Yes. Twelve just brought that up about Manny Machado. The Yankee fan, you think because of that lack of hustle Yankees. That's. And you know, what I heard on Rodney? While I was on hold. And he does I think he said, I don't I don't have to be the guy. That's totally wrong. Did she have to be the guy that line of the day? Be. Now the one who's producing. I I think there is pressure on him and regarding I watching from the Yankees perspective. I think he for him to say that about ending. I heard a lot of the guys talking about before he made that comment on the FAA ended up fifty brought up I might have to try as hard or ending lessening. They will look at it differently. And there go. Do you give them a mulligan on that forty down out of the out of his heart speaks truth? Boy, Rick, thanks so much. I hope that that was just a huge mistake on their part to even bring the subject up. We're talking about the integrity of the game. There is nothing more important than that. You're supposed to go out and do your best period. Last. Call Ken and Long Island. Ken. I've got just a few seconds for you. Thank you for the call. Hey doing I want. Why is it? I mean for the most part, they do a good job. But why is that they have to have terms like supreme court justices? Why can't be sent down just like regular players if they're not doing the job? Well, not only that would solve a lot of problems. Well, can thanks to that in? Also, can we please see the grading systems which are kept secret that I think would be we see the batting averages. We see the averages we see the whip. Why can't we see the the scoring system for the young Pires who's good who's not? Beth is retiring he's not gonna miss angel Hernandez who has apparently a. Because CC's got a thing with angel Hernandez a long time thing and said in the in the fall last year. I don't even think the guy should be in the in the major leagues, I think there needs to be more visibility. With regard to with regard to the empires for us for now..

"Beck. Everybody to Ed Randall's talking baseball. It's so hard. For our next guest to appear. He is the son and the namesake of his father, whom he and we just lost too soon to multiple myeloma. There is no one no one that was more beloved by both the Yankees and Mets fan bases than his father a legend in Burrows. He's here because he feels he owes it to his dad into the great fans of the city of New York, all of you. So with that up early for us on the west coast in the great city of skulk in Washington where I once worked the new pitching coach for the Miami Marlins. What a joy and honor. It is to have Mel Stottlemyre junior with us on Randall's talking baseball. There are no words to express our sorrow for you for your mom, gene. For Todd for the family for the loss of this. Great man before his time. No, I appreciate you. Having me on had. It's. Yeah. It's been it's been tough. There. There's you know. We had some time to think since since my dad's passing and just reflect back on the impact that he's made on on the baseball world on the people of New York, certainly on on his friends and family lives in. It's he's done. He's done some wonderful things and. You're right. It is a tough time to to talk about it. But I'm happy to do it. Well, we're so grateful because you feel that you owe it to your dead into the great fans of New York who loved them. They did. And you know, if my dad lives, seventy seven wonderful years and his great doctor namer there in New York when he was diagnosed and his other doctor in Seattle, doctor, Jan add koets really gave us if you if you really look at it from from the cards that he was Delton with the nasty disease that he had and that he fought in battle to the end, the really gave us today gave us twenty more years wonderful years of fishing trips of, you know, some some baseball and just continuing to be the great mentor and the person that he was and he he taught us all a lot about life those last twenty years. I bet I bet that he did we're going to we're going to break the phone system here for Mel Stottlemyre junior. We welcome. Your phone calls for him Yankee fans Mets fans. Baseball fans, who admired this man, who admired his father, the toll free number is, you know is eight. Eight eight eight nine two nine five nine six nine light it up for Mel Stottlemyre junior. What a career on the field. We think focus as the years pass. Mel on the great work. He did as a pitching coach for both teams. But as a pitcher, unfortunately, it was post dynasty. He came when it was ending. He came up from Richmond and pitch bleed to get them to the World Series against Saint Louis in nineteen sixty four. And then thereafter, he threw forty shutouts. He won twenty games three times. He had one hundred and fifty two complete games. He threw two hundred fifty or more innings in nine of his eleven seasons in his great career. And throughout the thing that stays with all of us was what a picture of class and dignity throughout his career. Obviously the great playing career. And you know, my my dad just in getting to know him the way that he looked at things and never taking anything for granted. And how he how loved the game of baseball. And in what you know, what he played for and just all the values that you wanna see in people. So yeah, he he played on some teams where they had some lean years. But I know I know how he was wired and how he thought that really led into his coaching career to where. You know, I I always admired respect that his players had for him and later on in life. You know, ask after grow up in the household and having a wonderful dad, raise you, you watched him admired the work that he did with those guys and respected. He had it. And you know, it all stemmed from the way that he treated people paying attention to details and how he treated everybody not only the fans the people that call his name when he was walking around the streets in New York and his own sons his his family. I mean, he taught us awesome wonderful lives. And I know a lot of his pitchers have had some great things to say about him since since his passing and very sincere words. He had a career earned-run average under three with the second baseman behind him. Who was I'll be polite shy about middling the double play. This is a ground ball pitcher with a great singer. Who could never assume the double play and yet never complained. Never complained. And that was the store, you know, we lost. My little brother Jason when when he was eleven years old leukaemia and Jason had a lot of of data. And he just just the way they battled and look life and never complaining. They kept kept grinding things out. And you know, my dad was born in Hazleton, Missouri and come from a little place called math in Washington and. I know that's the way that the path that he took to to get to where you did all those great things. And he he he lived by that and any coach by that. And he lived to the end and toddler saw about life, and how to live and what a great message, and you know, I pinch myself times. It's. I just knew as my dad, and so many people knew him of this this, you know, a man that they put on a stature and headed mired and honored and. Was an idol to a lot of people, and you just touched on something. He had a trait that separates, great baseball coaches. Mel he had relentless empathy. Well. He he showed my brother, and I a lot of love all the way to the end. And I know he took pride in that. And it it was something he didn't have to nounce to the world that he was gonna do. And and he did it and he loved his players. He talked about it all the time the respect that he gave them and the process it took to get to those guys to get the greatness out of them. And he really did instill a lot of time and care and to teach one of them. But it wasn't just as players. It was that way is his friends and people that didn't even know him that would stop him on the street. That's just how my dad was. And so well loved and in light. Just the respect. That's probably you know, my brother, and I had some time to reflect back and just the greatest messages and lessons in life. That we've learned is is how my dad treated people and how he loved people and how he looked at the world and his job and in his life. And what pitching coach catches bullpens. He thought that was the best way to see what his starting pitcher was going to have that night. And it still is that I did it when I was a younger pitching coach. Unfortunately, I had about five knee surgeries. So get down there. And it is tough guys are filthy nasty. Not that those guys weren't that. My dad caught. But you know, he he caught my brother, and I all the way, you know, in the off season when we were still playing and he loved to see the baseball from that other end what it was doing. And he could always he could always tell what was going on based on what that baseball was doing. It's I like to go down at the other end of the plate now instead of putting a glove on was standing in the batter's box. Oh hito. He'd has said that male could spot a change in your grip from the dugout. That's astounding. You got his head a good set. Is and. Like, I mean, he this is an hand invested. He never announced to the world that he wanted to be the greatest, but I can tell you everything you ever told my brothers. And is if you're gonna do something I want you to be the best, and I want you to do it. Right. And he looked at his job that way, I used to go down and visit him for spring training before I was going to go off and play the endless hours of watching videos getting to know these people so that when you can have those conversations he invested the time into that person that it took to get to know him. He was stricken with multiple myeloma, and he treated the disease an incurable cancer he treated that disease is a challenge to conquer in an opportunity to inspire others and on the phone for you mail. He's Kathy Giusti who is the founder of the multiple myeloma research foundation who loved your dad and loves your mom in you and the entire family. She's calling from Aruba. And we thought that we would put her on the air because I know she has a few things she wants to say, Kathy. Welcome to Ed. Randall talk baseball. Hi, ed. Hi now. How are you? Cathy. How're you? I got I'm good and Ed you are so right. I had how much love and admiration for your dad, and for your entire family the way he fought for disease, and I'm make I just. He would do anything to stay alive and keep say all around town because he never wanted. Anybody else to worry about him? And it was such a sign of a great leader. And an amazing patient inspired us. Not that. Oh, cathy. It's. No with my dad how he looked at how he battled that disease. He just you know, he he just waited for for something to turn or for another form of treatment to come out. He just knew that you guys could give him another year that he would take that year. Yep. Partner too. Because at you'll remember how amazing he wise at building awareness for my Aloma. Andy. MIF? I mean think about all the things that we did together. You know, he would come out and do the events and the Yankees would come and he'd raise awareness and do the interviews and the most memorable moment I ever have is walking out for the pitcher's mound between now Don Bailer for the subway series. And I remember looking at them and going to guys were walking all the way out like you taking me out to never thought this. And they just sit there, I'm Jami. Instead, you can do this. You can definitely do this, and it was for the most memorable moments ever ever in my life. And in that time there was so much wariness of ace around the disease and everybody became so much more familiar with it. And I think one of the reasons gets diagnosed earlier, and the reason we were able to raise dollars and bring their treatments was nose to Mark up on that. I'm so happy, you got to know him on that level. And you know, if you look at all the great things that he did as a player the coach, and you take those last twenty years in the people that he he mentored and talked talked through the tough times that they were going through, and he could relate and was there for people. I mean, people just strangers could reach out through emails and sometimes phone calls and my dad would take them and try to help them through in and just to give them that mindset and that positive influence that he had to keep going and fight, and he was a great role model for for many. And you hit it right on the head. Just raising awareness for for this disease. And and now being able to to diagnose it, and there's so many different forms of treatments and to keep people alive and keep them going, and we took that three to five year little window that you know, that they gave us and I remember he took it head on. I'll take it in the end the five years, they're going to find another treatment and. You know? It's man what if you just I wish everybody would have gotten a chance to to know my dad of the way that you did. And just the care that he had for the world and for people, and and the time that he took its he could influence a lot more. But I know he touched a lot of people's lives. And your mom, and like the pillar of strength when he was going to stem cell transplant into the hospital and just try to spend so strong. Like can was just amazing. I please give all of our love, Kathy. Thank you so much. You're you're so good to join us. Thank you very much. Thank you, Kathy. It's a gift. Thanks. Thanks now.

"And we would David Johnson. So grateful having with us as we talk about the great Frank Robinson. I'm a chase stadium for a day game. Frank finally gets an opportunity to manage again after Cleveland with San Francisco day game. And he comes out of the third base dugout to take out Jim bar. And is he arrives close to the mound? Davey bar flips the ball to him. And Frank instinctively catches the ball with one hand bar starts to walk a Frank grabs his shoulder, so he can't leave. And I thought all of all the people that try and show up here. This is the wrong guy in the world to do that to Frank Robinson. And then years later Franks in his last managerial job having moved with the Montreal franchise to Washington and Tomo oca- does the same thing. And the next day occas off the team, you just didn't do you didn't do it number one. But you certainly didn't do it to Frank Robinson. There's no question about that. That's no, no. When you're taking a picture out. He he has to and you the ball and quietly walk off and to do that it never happened to you. Did it never fact is just the opposite. I'll tell you that story. Every time. I used to have to check do I. He I take him out he'd walk in. Cheers. And then when I walk in. I get booed after I put the new pitcher, right? So I just changed the rule. I said doc, we're walking together. You wait to the other guy gets. We'll give me the ball. We walk in together. It's great I show up in spring training, many years ago to work for that our listeners will remember sports channel and the Orioles are gonna play the Mets in port Saint Lucie.

And then he Ed Randall you Ed rain, but you know, what that was always a test to see if you could gain his trust. And I was so grateful to be able to do that through the years. He later became a prostate cancer survivor, and a member of my charity. Fan for the cure advisory board, and he embodied baseball of the time. What a legacy for this man with what he did historically. There's no question about it. I mean, I was fortunate enough to play with a lot of great players. Teammate interference to I know. And you know, both just. In both right, fielders and. I I had a lot of interaction with both of them and totally different personalities. But totally same quality of player. I mean played played the game to win and didn't back off of any challenge. It was an honor for me to have that opportunity. It's an honor for me to have you on this morning show to talk about Frank Robinson. Dave, I know you don't do this much anymore. And I thank you so much happy birthday to you a a year filled with happiness and good health. Thank you for being with mitt. I also tell everybody another second basis born on my same day.
