The first baseman who played twelve seasons in the big leagues and of course was part of that iconic the legendary two thousand and four world series champion. Red sox team kevin will be participating at the In the american century championship in lake tahoe july seventh to the eleventh. Some of the other names sets tee off joe theismann. Who spoke with last week. Aaron rodgers patrick mahomes charles. Barkley john smoltz sixteen hall of famers thirteen. Mvp's and fifteen cy young award winners the american century championship in scenic lake tahoe features a purse of six hundred thousand dollars and charity fundraising components that have produced over five and a half million dollars for nonprofits over the years kevin. Let's start there. Does it get much better than a weekend golfing in tahoe with your buddies and other celebs athletes and raising a ton of money for charity. No no that's like. I basically i said this is like our masters when you. Let's let's use it works celebrity. But when you're talking about the celebrities athletes whoever's in involved and you're talking about bombing the whole this is like the masters because most of the big off that we all play. Hey that's good comedy. Hey hey that's good. That's good but i'm telling you a sixteen inch. Putt is not good. And you're a nervous wreck. This is an iconic tournament. You mentioned the masters to an extent for you guys. How did you get. I get involved with the tournament. And how important is philanthropy and charity to you kevin. Okay i got. This'll be about but i think it's my seventh or eighth year You know and and you named a lot of hall of famers and all stars. I wasn't one of those in the big league level. you know i just. We started our show ten years ago. Seventy i thank potential. Talk and then we'll be networking that that helped out a lot and Once i was in. I said listen if i'm never invited him cry so no matter what you know. Once you're you can't get out. And i said i have to come back every year as a joke. But it's been a great ron and it's truly important to me because this is the stage. You have a chance to touch people's lives. I mean first of all you know on a regular year last year obviously being kobe. But you're you're running through thirty to thirty five thousand people through those few days. In like tahoe. And it's time to wear like your humanized with all of the fans and you know you like you said you've had michael jordan out there. We've had justin timberlake steph. Curry aaron rodgers. tony romo. Will you know those names and those you know athletes. It's a big deal so it's a lot of fun and i think it's very important for all these being. Can you mentioned intentional. Talk in double digit years now. Officially i signed on. Did you expect it becoming so iconic and popular as it has become. Obviously you signed onto a new project. You hope that it's accessible but realistically did you imagine intentional. Talk being as huge as it is now because when you think baseball i in television shows talking baseball. Intentional talks to be near the top of the list. If it is yeah you know great. Because you're able to kind of make like who you are staying almost like a clubhouse feel on television and that was the first thing you know i got released in two thousand ten. The network launched around. That time. I think it was two thousand nine to be exact and they're trying to create shows right here. You are getting released for the first time the baseball. It's the sad part. You're thirty eight year. Young man alive your oldest sports and you got through to go. Hey that major league baseball a network awesome. I don't know anything about television. You're on the straight baseball player right coming out. Don't even know what a talk back. Button is and the. You're nervous wreck element. It's like being like being at the american century. You on the tahoe vent you can have the greatest receivers and quarterback but you put them on the first he you out of your element. So there's a nervous factor that goes involved and that's the way it was television and you know we look back now. In two thousand ten went up and get a few shows tie had a earpiece. Harold reynolds was a big influence. In helping me learn television and then it's still going. I thought i was going to be fired three months into it because really you know what you're doing other than trying to create some kind of energy through a camera in an earpiece and then now kind of all make sense in the early days did you have a john madden moment. Where they're talking back to you and your earpiece and you answer it on the air. I don't do that her laugh. He'll make a comment. And i don't pay that because you know i'm like a i always joke around like i'll plagiarizing. They say my ear and lobbyists dancers. If we're doing a trivia. I have no idea you know. We're xyz as idaho is on the map or whatever and then the british kind of picks me up but he might tell me air but a lot of stuff. I still do what you said something that. You're you're answering. Excuse me we got. And you're live on tv. Shut up we're speaking with kevin millar first base played twelve seasons in the bigs won a world series and four with the red sox you can see unintentional talk. You can also see him if you're going to be in lake tahoe. Because kevin will be playing at the american century championship. July seventh to the eleventh. Now you had a very non traditional route to the big kevin. You went to community college. Lamar university in texas independent ball. Were fill in during the strike season. And then you went with the marlins. What was that like just getting to the bigs because you hear so many stories of he was drafted first round pick flew through the minors in the big leagues or he fought in the minors and he toiled there for a long time but he went to a big college program. So what was it like for you going from community college to the bigs. Two world series champion. Yeah i if the pat an honest to god not just because my story. But i love talking to kids in high school and college or independent low ball. You have the opportunity. Plane big lakes. Don't let anybody tell you can't don't let any scout. I always joke around. I couldn't run field hitter throw and found a way to play twelve years up there and and i mean that by there should be a six tool and it should be your heart and it's hard. It's the hardest tool to judge because always physical traits right. Get six foot. Three runs a six to forty. He flies or he's six. Say you know the bottom line. Is we see that. But what's inside of a person. And i think that you know i was a guy that had to fight my whole life and that's okay and i wouldn't change it. You know started making six hundred bucks a month with the saint paul saints and ninety nine three thousand rich guy the coolest guy ever swinging bats taking bus trips with leon durham. Who was on our team. And you know it's it's what it's what makes you now the minor leagues and the one thing about the game now is that we have so many young stars and studs and everybody's strong big but i don't know if you've learned how to fail yet and that's what the miners teach you. 'cause you fail a lot in this game it's a tough game and that's the one thing i always appreciate it every minute as the big leagues because you know once you're in the minor leagues for years and years and winter ball and dominican and mexico and puerto rico. You know you wanna stay in the big leagues and it's hard to stay there and that's the one thing i've always appreciated was every single minute i was there now. I love analytics giants fan. So i love doing what the club the way gabe kappler approaches it in conjunction with the front office. But i i think there is such a gap that needs to be filled in with. Exactly what you said kevin and that's hard because there is still something to the test where you can see does a guy go out there and it's a cliche but does he grind out net. It's not just all. About how many pitches does he see. What's his spin rate. What's his launch angle. There is something to be. Said about the grit. The guys like yourself. I think of dustin pedroia. Who if you are jose. Altuve if you look at them in a lineup like pick the baseball.

"The stuff that i don't know you know there's so many numbers and all of sports that now you start getting over over my la city junior college education. And lamar university. Of all my sexist. I don't know exactly if that matters. But i know that major league baseball is trying to get now everything on an even playing field and that's where i think that you're starting to see. There's a lot of moving parts now. This isn't going to be perfect. What consists of somebody uses compliment. You're not supposed to use. But i think that's the that's the stance right now with major league. Baseball's is trying to get everybody on live in plainfield but my personal experience back in the bay. It never bothered me rather than throw strikes and throw it in my face. What happens rosenberg. Kevin i'm just used to be a rosin bag out there on the mound i pitch pony league. I used the rosin bag. Is that no good anymore. I mean the rosin bag. The rosin bag is what is four. Right it takes opt humidity from your hand dripping sweat and all that stuff and then make sense to you know what hair products and moose and yell or whatever it was like the pine tar rags from the players tax by now. I have no idea. It's another world of whatever they're talking about but it's definitely become an issue if this is becoming addressed the way it is Guest is kevin millar. Of course the former major league outfielder and first basement and mlb network show host talking about pitching Jacob degrom has a ridiculous era of zero sixty two at last count and he's moved into the favorite spot in vegas to be the national league. Mvp where are you on that too. Many question mark with pitching going on and shoot a pitcher win the mvp. I'm personally my fan of it because the position players out there one hundred sixty plus games a year. I mean obviously now it's more of the one hundred forty five to fifty games. It's like not everybody know. Plays every game but you know the pictures that they make every star in as a great year for them. It's thirty to thirty two starts year. No that you know. Grants and mvp. That's my opinion though you know. Play with a lotta pitchers and i. You know we joke around a lot and the non athletes but there is a difference when you're attacking every fifth day then when a guy has gone through every day now that being said you need them so the guys often have these kind of numbers and dominate at another. You know level and there's not the slammed. I'll be down there in the consideration but my opinion like when you those one that bp. Yeah i'm with you. You'd have to be so phenomenal to win the mvp people but how about the national league west. You've got three teams there giants going into tuesday night. They were in first place. Then you had the dodgers one game out and a padres four games out can all three of those teams make the playoffs in the national league. Yeah you know. The giants have probably the biggest surprise going in baseball. 'cause all we talked about was pottery founders coming into the offseason obviously all the stars that are on the padres darvish played snell situation. The dodgers their depth. You know look at the start your when you're talking about walker feeler clayton kershaw sign. Trevor bauer dustin may julio arias all these young stats may goes down. Dodgers go through. You know a injury. Just like half of the league's gone through but yeah they can make it. And that's what. I think that the great thing this year with baseball parody. I don't think there's a slam dunk best team and up story. I thought the dodgers were way better than everybody else. And then it was the rest of baseball. But even that isn't the case you still gonna play the game. No doubt cav lasting. The all-star balloting has come out the first phase and betts right now if it was you know if we would have closed the balloting he would not be a starter in the outfield and the national league. He did off to a slow start. Do expect them to catch up and be a starter or will the we'll his slow start hurt him and not make him a starting outfielder for the national league. Yeah you never know. That's the fans. Speak up and you know i mean. Obviously there is a lot of competition in the outfield. Especially you know for the all star games. And you're looking guys like ronald junior. And whoever else you're gonna try me out there jennifer become straight. You know the fans. Vote so mookie. I don't have a crate. As a great team. Played for the los angeles dodgers. I'm sure the fans are not making huge. Push and trying to get him in starting rotation there in course field his name kevin millar check out on the mlb network.

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm Sarah McCammon. Another pandemic milestone is approaching, nearly 600,000 people have died from Covid 19 in the US. This comes at a time when new cases have declined more than 90% since the winter highs. NPR's Allison Aubrey joins us to talk about this and also about a health condition that has been on the rise but under recognized amid the pandemic. Nelson. Good morning, Sarah. So as we approach this 600,000 death mark, it seems like a stark reminder of the told the pandemic. Yeah, I mean, the pandemic is easing up, and with so much of the return to normal or normal ish, it's easy to overlook that it's not completely over. The U. S. Is still losing about 375 people a day. That's a huge drop compared to the few 1000 deaths a day back in the winter. But it's a reminder of how deadly the virus can be. And the importance of the ongoing vaccination push. As of today, about 64% of adults in the U. S have gotten at least their first dose, and it's clear that getting more people vaccinated as soon as possible so important. So the situation clearly is improving Fewer deaths, fewer cases. But there's still a lot of talk Alison about some of the ripple effects from the pandemic, some of the other health conditions linked to it. You've been looking into one in particular. What medical experts I guess called tinnitus. What a lot of us call tonight. It's or ringing in the ear. What are you finding there? Well, 10, it is is basically the perception of ringing in the ear when there's no external noise. Actually there. Some people describe the sound as a buzzing or even like crickets or as the k to like sound. The CDC estimates at about 15% of people experience some form of tinnitus. An estimated 20 million people have chronic cases, and sometimes it's debilitating. There are also intermittent and temporary cases. Survey research done during the pandemic, found that among people who already had tinnitus, many reported it got worse. I spoke to L. Draibi ECUs of Lamar University who is one of the study authors. During the pandemic for those people that have pre existing tinnitus that they noticed experiences were worse due to the changes the pandemic brought on lifestyle. Because I know there's a link between anxiety and increased stress and tinnitus either initiating or worsening. So in general, people who were lonely, isolated, her stressed, the more bothersome the ringing tended to be. And so is the condition actually caused by the stress or is stressed something that makes it worse. You know, the onset of tendencies can be linked to a bunch of things. Hearing loss is one other potential triggers include TMJ issues trauma to the had Or even Sinus pressure, and the survey found. Some people develop tinnitus just after a covid infection. Now it's often hard to pinpoint the catalyst. That's the case with Elizabeth Fraser. She's in her early sixties. She developed it last fall. She told me she realized that stress can heighten the intensity of the ringing in her ears. Mind was just like this high pitched sonic sound, and when it first started, I was mostly so highly distressed and panicked because I was bewildered. Where did this come from? What have I done wrong? Um, and it was miserable because I couldn't get away from it. It just felt like this invasion in my head, and it doesn't Necessarily feel like it's isolated to the ear, so I was really distressed. It was as if the ringing was the only thing she could focus on Sarah and it was driving her mad. Yeah. I mean, that sounds pretty awful. Was she able to do anything about it? Yeah, she found a program online called Mindfulness based tinnitus stress reduction. It's based on research done at the University of California, San Francisco. Now it doesn't take away or stop the ringing, but it does teach people how to be less bothered by it. I spoke to Jennifer Gans, the psychologist who developed the program. A lot of people leave their doctor's office. Feeling in a panic when they experienced fathers intended is because It's often said, Hey, there's no cure for this. There's no pill. There's no surgery that I can do for you. But actually, the results that I'm getting from the online mindfulness based tended to stress reduction course are just showing that even in three weeks, people are harsh, seeing significant drops in there tended his father. And in their stress, the ringing may not stop probably doesn't stop. But the idea is to shift your reaction to it to train the mind to just let go of the preoccupation with the ringing and focus on other things. And how'd that work out for Elizabeth Fraser? The woman we heard from a moment ago? She told me that learning these skills helped her immensely. I immediately felt better. She pretty quickly takes you to the point of learning how to manage your anxiety. And how to come. You know, the hyperactive nervous system that's feeling endangered from this horrible noise in the head. And so I was practicing deep breathing, and that was helping me get to sleep now. Typically, when people are busy when they're surrounded by others, they noticed the ringing Lest there in the flow, they have plenty of distractions. But at night when it's quiet or when they're alone. This can be challenging. The ringing can just be a lot more noticeable. So in addition to these breathing techniques, she also sometimes uses a white noise app that plays the sound of, say, falling rain, which can be relaxing and can help mask that sound in her head. So, Alison, you say tinnitus. I'm not being a science reporters say tonight us but regardless ringing of the years really annoying, really distressing, But is it actually dangerous? You know, tinnitus itself is benign. But if it disrupts sleep if it disruption, quality of life, this becomes.

"I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm Sarah McCammon. Another pandemic milestone is approaching, nearly 600,000 people have died from Covid 19 in the US. This comes at a time when new cases have declined more than 90% since the winter highs. NPR's Allison Aubrey joins us to talk about this and also about a health condition that has been on the rise but under recognized amid the pandemic, Hailston Good morning, Sarah. So as we approach this 600,000 death mark, it seems like a stark reminder of the told the pandemic. Yeah, I mean, the pandemic is easing up, and with so much of the return to normal or normal ish, it's easy to overlook that it's not completely over. The U. S. Is still losing about 375 people a day. That's a huge drop compared to the few 1000 deaths a day back in the winter, but it's a reminder of how deadly the virus can be. And the importance of the ongoing vaccination push. As of today, about 64% of adults in the U. S have gotten at least their first dose, and it's clear that getting more people vaccinated as soon as possible. So important, so the situation clearly is improving Fewer deaths, fewer cases. But there's still a lot of talk Alison about some of the ripple effects from the pandemic, some of the other health conditions linked to it. You've been looking into one in particular. What medical experts I guess called tinnitus. What a lot of us called tonight is or ringing in the ear. What are you finding there? Well, tinnitus is basically the perception of ringing in the ear when there's no external noise. Actually there. Some people describe the sound as a buzzing or even like crickets or as the k to like sound. The CDC estimates that about 15% of people experience some form of tinnitus. An estimated 20 million people have chronic cases, and sometimes it's debilitating. There are also intermittent and temporary cases. Survey research done during the pandemic, found that among people who already had tinnitus, many reported it got worse. I spoke to L. Draibi ECUs of Lamar University who is one of the study authors. During the pandemic for those people that have pre existing tinnitus that they noticed experiences were worse due to the changes the pandemic brought on lifestyle. Because I know there's a link between anxiety and increased stress. And tinnitus either initiating or worsening. So in general people who were lonely, isolated or stressed, the more bothersome, the ringing tended to be. So is the condition actually caused by the stress or is stressed something that makes it worse. You know, the onset of tendencies can be linked to a bunch of things. Hearing loss is one other potential triggers include TMJ issues, trauma to the had, or even Sinus pressure, and the survey found some people develop tinnitus just after a covid infection. Now it's often hard to pinpoint the catalyst. That's the case with Elizabeth Fraser. She's in her early sixties. She developed it last fall. She told me she realized that stress can heighten the intensity of the ringing in her ears. My interest is like this high pitched sonic sound. And when it first started, I was mostly so highly distressed and panicked because I was bewildered. Where did this come from? What have I done wrong? Um, and it It just felt like this invasion in my head That doesn't necessarily feel like it's isolated to the ear. So I was really distressed. It was as if the ringing was the only thing she could focus on Sarah and it was driving her mad. Yeah. I mean, that sounds pretty awful. Was she able to do anything about it? Yeah, she found a program online called Mindfulness based tinnitus stress reduction. It's based on research done at the University of California, San Francisco. Now it doesn't take away or stop the ringing, but it does teach people how to be less bothered by it. I spoke to Jennifer Gans, the psychologist who developed the program. A lot of people leave their doctor's office. Feeling in a panic when they experience fathers intended is because It's often said, Hey, there's no cure for this. There's no pill. There's no surgery that I can do for you. But actually, the results that I'm getting from the online mindfulness based tended to stress reduction course are just showing that even in three weeks, people are harsh, seeing significant drops in there tended his father and in their stress. The ringing may not stop probably doesn't stop. But the idea is to shift your reaction to it to train the mind to just let go of the preoccupation with the ringing and focus on other things. And how'd that work out for Elizabeth Fraser? The woman we heard from a moment ago? She told me that learning these skills helped her immensely. I immediately felt better. She pretty quickly takes it to the point of learning how to manage your anxiety. And how to come. You know the hyperactive nervous system that's feeling endangered from this horrible noise in the head. And so I was practicing deep breathing, and that was helping me get to sleep now. Typically, when people are busy when they're surrounded by others, they noticed the ringing Lest there in the flow, they have plenty of distractions. But at night when it's quiet or when they're alone, this can be challenging. The ringing can just be a lot more noticeable. So in addition to these breathing techniques, she also sometimes uses a white noise app that plays the sound of, say, falling rain, which can be relaxing and can help mask that sound in her head. So, Alison, you say tinnitus. I had not been a science reporters say tonight us but regardless ringing of the years really annoying, really distressing, But is it actually dangerous? You know, tinnitus itself is benign. But if it disrupts sleep if it disrupts your quality of life, this becomes a.
