"Is one of those quick fielding pitchers that managers dream of. And so seldom fine. He goes with the, the burdett's and the paddocks. Did you imitate anyone? Did your fielding position in prowess come from anyone or was that something you just had? I never thought I was going to be a pitcher to tell you the truth. I was always a small and I used to be out in the field and dining practice and I'd be a shortstop or I'd be in the outfield. I always became a pretty decent dealer, but I didn't really think I was going to be a good fuel. To get H straight gold growth. I guess they thought I was right. I thought there was a lot of guys that could feel as good as me. Yeah. And as a relief pitcher in some of the years that you won, which is very impressive, that doesn't happen much these days. Four years in the American League and then four years in the national league. When I got it ahead of bob Gibson and a couple of Harvey addicts and when the changes that I was on, I said, man, I can't believe it, but I'll take it. Yeah. Well, maybe this will make you feel good too. I was doing some research and I discovered something about you that I thought was interesting and I hadn't heard before. I was looking at all of the great hitters that you faced as a pitcher in your career and I noticed that you did really well against a lot of them Larry doby and Nellie Fox. Yeah. You did great again. There were some really good feeling that Ted Williams and one guy had a heck of a time getting him. Can you remember? I had a hell of a time guy going to get him out and he knew it. I tried everything to get him out. But even if I got him out, you're right somewhere, if he was such a good hitter, I didn't think he was that great to hear, but he must have been a pretty good hitter. And then later in later years, I ended up on the same team with him with a Philly, and I quit in 1964. He said, I thought I could always hit you. You did, you sure did. Well, you know they have numbers for everything now and you can look up anything these days and I was able to research that you faced hitters who went on to get into the Hall of Fame more than a thousand times in your career a thousand. You know that, but I knew there was a lot of good hitters. Yeah, quite a few good hitters. Yeah. There's still quite a few. There's still quite a good hitter. But you did really well against them. In fact, of all of the pitchers who ever faced future Hall of Famers, that many times, so a couple hundred pitchers did, you did the best against them. So you were, you were the best against future Hall of Famers. Future hall fingers. Really? Barely hit any better against you than everyone else did. It was like you handled them as well as you handled. Just the average hitter, which is really unusual. Probably because I didn't throw so hard. I chase feed the line. That helped change his speed. It makes good hitters slow down a little bit. Yeah, maybe that's why. How hard did you throw roughly? Because I was wondering. I don't have any idea. I was just guessing, look at these guys, throw today, make my armor, I just like them. I don't know. I figured I figured I might, I might have thrown a three or a four mile an hour. I'm not really sure. We didn't have any guns in them when I was playing. Of course, yeah. But to be able to generate some speed despite your size, you must have really gotten the most out of your frame, I would imagine. I had pretty good luck against Ted Williams. So Ted was a heck of a hitter. And one time I got a chance to meet him and he told me one of the best curve balls in the American League, which.

"What's the record for most miss sweeps in a season period so including teams that did eventually ernest weep at some point. 'cause i was guessing that the pirates already held the record for most miss weeks before the first successful sweep in a season and ryan confirmed that the record for most outright missed sweeps since nineteen hundred is nineteen by the nineteen thirty philadelphia athletics and he confirmed that since one thousand nine hundred the record for most miss sweeps to start a season was eleven by the nineteen thirty nine pirates again. It's the pirates kind of a consistent theme here but yeah the pirates just a looking at their schedule for the rest of this season and seeing what their chances of A sweep are doesn't look great for them. They are playing the marlins right now. That's their best chance so if they could sweep the marlins then they could get off the schneider here after that they play the reds for three games than they play the phillies four games. It would be even tougher to sweep before game serious. And then they have the cubs again for three and then they finish this season against the reds so their best chances really come against the marlins this weekend and against the cubs in the last season of september. But they've already made history they could make even more history if a stay sleepless for the rest of the season. I'm so impressed by how many times you managed to say. Sweeps eating goof it up even one time ben. Yeah that's your proof house we it is to call back to some old effectively weld episodes in. Yeah this is not something i ever would have noticed. I guess it's frustrating to be poised on the precipice of sweep so many times and not to seal the deal. So that sucks. I had The lavar voice. Joke and song. That i told you off air second my head for lakes now. Our listeners did not hear it. You wanna share it with them. They he should record a cover of the eagles and sing it. You can go lavarnway. Yeah i not had that stuck in my head. Fortunately for days and days and days. Oh no yeah all right well. Good step blasts good questions. Good research. Thanks to everyone involved as always understood. Shout out a little extra fun factor. That i was hip to buy twitter and listener aiden jackson evans who tweeted prior to friday's game. That joey gallo needs one homer and twenty one more strikeouts in the next fifteen games to achieve a full nelson and what he is calling. The full nelson is more home. Runs and strike outs in a single season than nellie fox had in his entire nineteen season career so now fox Former white sox second baseman hall of famer sort of the metrical of his day. He had thirty five home runs and two hundred sixteen strikeouts in his entire career because he never really struck out and he didn't have a ton of power. Joey gallo entered friday's game with thirty five home runs and one hundred ninety six strikeout. So almost the full nelson and he has since homered in friday's game so he has surpassed smelly fox's career run total this season and he is well on his way to surpassing his career. Strikeout total and i just ran a quick stat head query to see who else had the full nelson in the past this players who've had thirty five or more homers and two hundred sixteen or more strikeouts in a single season. It's mark reynolds in two thousand nine. Adam done in two thousand twelve and chris davis in two thousand sixteen and i would guess that gallo will be the fourth sometime soon. The only player who has had the strikeouts but not the homers the half nelson is yoan moncada in two thousand eighteen cool. Yeah that's a sign of how things have changed to in also just How much of a contact. Outlier now fox was even in his day. But yeah that's doing for you constantly breaking the scale all right so that will do it for this week. Thanks as always for listening. Well eat your heart out. Howard empty your ninety nine year old record for the most hit by pitches in a single season has been broken on friday night after we finished recording padres reliever austin adams issued his twenty fourth hit by pitch of the season he has pitched only forty nine and two thirds innings the recipient of number twenty four was cardinals catcher yet ear. Molina looked like the pitch him on. The back of the arm. Adams really seems mad at himself every time it happens. He shouts looks down at his hand. As if to say how could you be paying me like this at this point. He can't be that surprised. Max bay on twitter did some analysis of his pitches locations and he found that earlier in the season maybe adams was getting a bit unlucky with how often his pitches were hitting people but that lately his expected hit by pitch rate has spiked to the point that on average would be expected to hit about six batters per hundred pitches just based on where his pitches have been. And this one was pretty unavoidable. It wasn't eighty seven mile per hour. Slider and molina was fine. Padres manager. jason. Taylor said i get the narrative. He gets the narrative. They're all sliders. This guy's not hunting. This guy's not throwing ninety five mile per hour fast balls and hitting guys. Yeah that's true but even so it just doesn't seem like he knows where his pitches are going. It's gotta be tough to bring a guy in there's like a near certainty at this point that he's going to hit someone course. It's also tough to bring a guy in when there's a good chance that he's going to give up runs and he's been doing that a lot lately and he did that in this game. Play log was doubled left. Strike out swinging walk. Wild pitch hit by pitch then adams was replaced by rusted. Who allowed a grand slam to dylan carlson. And that made. What was a four to cardinals. Lead in eight to cardinals lead. And that's where it ended up. So shockingly the vince. Velazquez austin adams. Ross detweiler pitching plan. Did not pay off adams over his last seven appearances has hit seven batters and perhaps more importantly to the padres is allowed. Ten earned runs so you may not be seeing him in a lot of high leverage situations but he has already made history to cap off one of the weirdest seasons of all.

"That? Okay. I'm sure that chip carry on the way home realized that what he said made no sense at all. Because there are a million guys, not a million. Maybe. But there are a ton of guys who played the major league baseball whose last name I did it X like Greg Maddux and Mike Maddux, Sandy Colfax. There's Wilcox there, Steve Sax. There's Knicks. There's Gavin Lux. There's Nellie Fox. There's a lot of guys whose last name ended X. He's not the only major leaguer in baseball history that And with the letter X That was, uh, that was interesting from a chip Carey and yes, he was. You know what he's still doing games still doing games for? You know, the the Braves. And that's great. I catch a game every once in a while because you've got the extra innings package and you hear Chip Carey doing a game, But I'll be interested to see what he's got to come back and talk about that because he is so far off on that one. Let's go to well Matt and Steve Steve. What's up? Hey, for I love the show. Thank you. You're welcome. Jeff. Joanie at combat. Those games is often love, watching or listening to him, which I wish we could get him on. You know, regular air so we can hear them while watching the game. Yeah, you got if you want to do it, you've got to just sync up your TV with the radio and somehow do it. I do it. I do it during the football season like I've known Jeff since he got out of college, and he's great. There's nobody that works as hard as him. Once the season starts. You can't call him because he's like so into everything is doing his preparation and everything else and, Yeah, it's the most. It's so important to him besides it. Besides his two daughters, it's the most important thing to him. That's awesome. Thanks for taking my call. Fred. You're welcome, Steve. Yes, Jeff is a great guy. I've known what you said. He got out of Iowa State, and he came and worked with us a sports phone. And so I'm no Jeff forever and he worked very, very hard. And I give him some constructive criticism. Sometimes that I don't that he doesn't call me for a while. I don't know. I don't know why I never understood that. Uh, let's go to Woodstock and Mike. Mike, you're on ESPN. 1001 of my favorite ones is Joe McConnell. And he is the bears. Yep. A lot. A lot of people love McConnell. He was so it was funny because his broadcast was like so matter of fact, Lee, but he always got you. Everything got you all the details all the information he called when, when Peyton went over and set the rushing record and everything some great great stuff. They had great announcers with him. And he also he also did White Sox baseball too. Yes, he did. Yes, he did Remember that there are so many of them. Mike Appreciate the call. So many of these great announcers here in Chicago and it was cool listening to your opinions on some of these great announcers in your favorite announcers, everybody, You know, we're all ages. When we listen to sports radio here we've got we've got the young guys. We had a guy the other day, so it was like 20. He's listening. And then we've got the guys like, you know, uh, Ride the South side. You know, 57 years are born in 57 the same age as me at 64. So, yeah. You got all different kinds. We've listened to so many different people. Phil Rosenthal's leaving the Tribune and a lot of people, the tribunal leaving taking buyouts or whatever. He wrote an article today The headline is rare Flooding moment. Huge mistake doesn't take away too much from historic no hitter call of the Cubs. So I'm gonna I'm gonna mention it because it's written down here. I'm going to mention how the call went. Okay. Cubs fans are standing at Dodger Stadium. Kimbrel always look composed. The batter is AJ Pollock Pollock over three right handed hitting outfielder. In fact. Now even Dodgers fans start to stand. Kimbrel's pitched apologize swing and a miss of vanishing slider that ended up down near the ankles. Kimbrel bends over at the waist. Right elbow sticking out to the side and an old one pitch to Pollock Strike two called the Dodgers now down to their last strike Dodgers without a hit to down bottom of the ninth inning, Kimbrel is ready and the 02 swinging them as the Cubs have done it a combined no hitter for the first time in the long legendary history of the Chicago Cubs. That's the way the broadcast sounded on radio, Okay, and then Phil Rosenthal points out. The problem was it wasn't Pollock, whom Kimbrel struck out on the three pitches. Here's what happened. Paula came out of the game in the top of the eighth inning, replaced in left field. By Steven Souza. When the Dodgers relieved Garrett Clevant, your substituted for Phil Bickford. So Souza led off the bottom of the eighth with Kleven. You're set to bat with two down and went out in the ninth. Smith pinch hit in Pollock spot And Pat Hughes ever. The professional said no excuses. I thought it was a J. Pollock. It was will Smith. You're right. I do. Try to take pride on getting everything is precise and correct as they possibly can. But I was joking to myself saying, Boy, That's how good Kimbrel stuff was. He even fan me. So Announcer's make mistakes, and it's even worse when you're not at the ballpark, and it's easy in baseball. When you're making switches, double switches. All of a sudden, there's a guy coming to play in the ninth inning. It was somebody else. There's someone pinch hitting. You may have missed it with all the excitement building. And But the nice part is For decades, people will hear Pat Hughes call, and he did not mention it at the last pitch. He did not mention who the batter was. He just mentioned what happened. So when we talk about favorite radio Baseball announcers. Pat Hughes is definitely on my list because I've loved for the longest time listening, uh, to him, do the games and yes, we are the home of white sax baseball. But we also talk white socks and cubs all the time. So I'm not in front of a TV and the whites action not playing like last night when I'm leaving. Soldier Field and the Chicago Fire game. I'm listening to their call, and I heard I heard Cody Bollinger go deep. That's how the game ended. We come back. We've got some. I'll talk about what happened and how I lost money yesterday, even though what I picked came true. We'll explain that. Take your calls. 3123323776 white sax baseball today. Here on ESPN. They're going to finish up the suspended game, then play the regularly scheduled game.

"Stopped even Well, I was never a White Sox fan because I didn't grow up in Chicago, but they were the team that wore the shorts. 11. That's right out of his game or several games or whatever, but it was like that's when Harry Carey was their announcer. He went from the sucks to the Cubs. I believe in 15. I thought Harry Carey was their announcer and Harry would Harry did do some White Sox game He would call the games from the bleacher Cubs and white. So Yeah, he got the bleachers and sit with the fans and drink beer. You think Harry was ever faded? Calling the game? You think he ever wasn't a man?

At the Nellie Fox Bet had a thick handle that handle used to call fat handle. I don't want one of them. Fat handles. Yeah. I was talking about bats. That's of course, yes, bats. Um 337138585 Lewis.

This is my first time ever calling, But I think it really, uh I had to just I've been in and out so I don't know if anybody else has. But I have a good millennial and I am extremely proud of her. I mean, she worked hard through school elementary school as well as junior high or I guess they call it middle high school. She was on a roll of that kind of stuff. She decided to go to college outside of state. And you know a lot of times. I know when I left to go play football. I went to California, California ate me up. I wasn't prepared for that, because you know Colorado's backwards. But I don't need to get any calls. I'm not saying we're backwards backwards, but we're slower than California, but she went out out of state to go to college. She got her degree. She worked in the area where she got her degree at across the bay in Chesapeake. She got a bachelor's in nursing and low to our surprise her mother and I She decided that she was going to go into the Navy. And wow. Uh, she's an officer in the in the Navy, and we haven't been able to see her because she currently stationed over in Japan. And it's been there for a year. But, you know, she's a perfect example of a kid that really worked hard to school, maintained that grades was able to get into college and it's just moving forward in life. He's got a great personality. Uh, very good care giver. So on and so forth, And I guess, as you can tell, I am extremely proud of my millennial. Yeah, and I've worked with a lot of young people a lot of young men over the years and You know, I've heard seen and heard all the things that other people talk about. But this particular mental millennial she she's an awesome young lady. And and I'm proud of her. That's great. Congratulations. Thank you. You should be a proud dad. Rick and I have good millennials as well. Absolutely so. Proud of my two? Yep, proud of mine. Um, where we going? Three or 37138585? Raleigh in Fort Lupton on Caylee news radio. Morning. How are you were? Well, thanks, Your boy. Hey, Rowley, how are you? Well, pretty good. You guys. I came by the station here. Just a little bit. Uh And you guys talking about this, Uh, this wage and hour and child labor and all that kind of stuff Well, When we were kids in Portland options. Before I actually started working with with the dealership. We worked for the fort looking cannon company and and on a lot of an antiquated machines that were homemade and everything, but they worked as your enough what they called campaign where we're taking the beans and peas and All that stuff. How the fields and we work from six in the morning till midnight for, like, three weeks straight over to for 2 15 an hour. Wow. But when we when we got to check after that period of campaign, you know, like $300. So we just thought we were rich. Yeah. You had all the money you'd ever need right? Oh, Christ. It was it was. It was a wonderful time in life. And then uh, then that's when and after that, I started working for our family dealership and everything. And, uh, my old man always told me that, you know. Rolling people got four ways You got to work, and, uh, my my dad would pretty much give me whatever I wanted. After I did what he wanted, and some of these things that lasted you know, four or five months before we got the payoff. Got my first like that way. Yeah, yeah. But he is still the work ethic of me that that was almost criminal. I think so. It's but you know what? You look at the success you've had You look back now and Was probably the right thing to do.

"Monday. We're talking about child labor laws. If Logan Rick Lewis Kathie Lee in windy because we both Rick and I worked as a As a kid. Right, um and winded. Child labour loss as we now know them come into effect. It really are they? Are they seriously in effect? Are they in effect for only some jobs? We've gone through our, you know, Erin harbors. Frankly, a little too smart for the show. But he's nice enough and we're friends enough with him that he agrees to come on every now and then. Aaron Aaron. Good morning, Dave. Rick and Kathy, How are you? Hey, Dave, Rick and Cathy. I'm great. How are you guys were good. Tell us everything You know about child labor laws in 120 seconds and go. I know that when you're nine years old, you're allowed to do shoe shining. But I think the demand for it has declined precipitously. I didn't never did that. You're a bad boy at Comiskey Park. Am I right? Yeah, it was a bad boy for the Chicago White Sox. 15 15 Wow and our our main global. Our main job was to clean the players and the umpires shoes after the game. That was it. Did they pay you for it? Or is this just so you could On the field. I was paid by a professional baseball team. I had my own uniform. I got to be out on the field. I shagged lies with some of the best, and I got a whopping $6 a game and $8 for doubleheaders. So if that's not child labor exploitation, I don't know what is right. Are you a lifelong White Sox fan? Because of that? Am I am indeed I root for the White Sox. First the folks in the Rockies organization or get mad at me, and then I root for the Iraqis, Seconds. So a white Sox Iraqis, World Series is my dream. But how is that going to work out once you sue the White Sox for breaking child labor laws, right paying you six bucks again. I'm afraid I'm no longer 15. So the statute of limitations has a year. Okay, So So what are I mean, Generally speaking, how significant of child labor laws do we have now in this country, and are they I mean, are they in practice as we speak? Well, so two great questions. There are ridiculous Number of child labor laws number one. You have a whole set of federal laws. And then you hope you have an entire set of state laws in each of the 50 states, plus our territories, et cetera. So it's extraordinary, complex ordinarily complex. Uh, many people do not pay attention to them, but I think part of it is that they just don't know about them. I don't think there's you know, intentional malfeasance. If you're a business, though, you know, walmart or whatever you know they do Pay attention to obviously to child labor laws. So you know if your Starbucks You're going to be careful. But if you're, you know, private individual, they're all kind And and a lot of small companies hire people. And then of course, you pretty much can do whatever you whatever your parents want you to do. Um, so I mean, you can be working when you're six. So when we were kids doing the jobs we did you included. The child labor laws were In effect. But it somehow we didn't fall into that category of Or maybe the people we were working for. We're off the radar like Dave's miniature golf course and You know the supermarket? I work for Well, the supermarket, you know, unless it's a single supermarche. Certainly if it was a chain, they probably knew what was going on. You could be nine years old. You're qualified each wise to caddy on the golf course I had two friends. Billion Chuck. And we did yard work, and we formed our own company called ABC. Aaron, Billy and Chuck. Hmm. We were doing stuff when we were 10 and 11 years old, Uh and we would get paid for it. But you know whether and some of the equipment we were using We probably should not have been using to be to be candid, but no one was supervising us. I mean, no one. Our parents were glad to get out of the house. We were earning enough money to go to the candy store, which we did quite frequently when we were working in the summer. So no, I think when you're doing something on your own when you're doing something for your family, certainly in agriculture. I mean, you know kids who grow up. It's written notes. And Kathy knows I live on a farm and I have a daughter and unfortunately I can't get her to go outside and help on the farm. But you know, real farming. Families that the kids are often involved. You know, as soon as they can walk, speaking of that area, the the reason that this topic started we were talking about millennials. There was a wallet hub. Story that Colorado is very popular place for millennials to be moving to. You have a daughter, Uh, who's a millennial? And there's a some seems to be a bit of a problem of millennials launching, being able to get out on their own. Lot of studies out there, showing that there's a lot of millennials living at home, not working. And as you know, you know, you can make a pretty good living not working these days. Uh, especially the last year or so, What are your thoughts on that? Well, you're getting real personal right now, Rick. So I'm terribly not talking about your daughter, Erin, Not your daughter in particular. I can't get her out of the house. I mean, launch. Oh, my God. I can't even get her to the launch pad. But that's another issue, And I'm sure your listeners can give me lots of good advice, but Uh, no. I mean, you know something like 50% of young people under 30 are living at home. I don't know if that's one of the statistics. You are, so I mean, there are a lot of reasons for it. I mean, and my daughter's case. It's very comfortable here. So she knows a good thing when she sees it, But she goes to college, right. Your daughter is a full time student. Yeah. Yeah, but she's on the 10 year plan. So I mean, she's working the system, you know, changing her changing her major periodically, so he gets attack on another year or two. So, no, I think you know, there are a lot of different things, you know, different factors, You know, certainly the financial aspect a lot of kids when you look until I mean right now, you have incredible job opportunities. But In the past several years of a lot of them have just been low level service jobs. You have a lot of kids who are in school. Uh and you do have just an extraordinary number of of kids or younger people who are at home cost to housing, You know, keep a lot of young people out of being able to launch fully. So, Yeah, There are a lot of factors going on. Plus, you know, the gaming opportunities on twitch are extraordinary. So wide. Leave that before we let you run. Aaron was Nellie Fox, your favorite White Sox player. Um, you know, Gosh, you know, my favorite White Sox player was Carlos May okay? Because he was on the team when when I was there, and he used to throne we used to. I used to be actually on the left field line. So I got to warm up like catch every half inning with either a White Sox player and Carlos was in left field, and he always he always assuming knuckleballs so he may be chase balls and everybody understands, you know, would laugh at me. But I also got to play catch with every left fielder in the American League. And so it was. It was a great Wow, man, I guess so. I guess so. I'd like to want, you know, I lived in Chicago for a while as well. And my favorite team was the White Sox, not the Cubs. The White Sox. The blue collar, you know, team in Chicago. My favorite guy was Dick Allen. Oh, yeah. Yeah, he was. I mean, they had some data had some great players and, uh, they're not doing they're actually doing great. This Yeah. Give you except for the last four games, which they got swept by the Astros. But don't get me upset about that. Erin. Great to catch up with you. Thanks for the time. All right. Take care of guys. You remember we, uh we go to him periodically for for Mark questions. Yeah. Remember, It's funny Dick Allen to me. It's not a white sock. Dick Allen would be a Philly. Yeah. And Carlos May To me. I think I remember Carlos May with the reds, but I'm not see anyone with White Sox. Obviously, Erin, maybe it Maybe I've got the wrong guy. I like to. I like the socks. You know, we lived there for a couple like maybe two years in the Sox play in the World Series in 59. I mean, you and I were well, that was before my time babies they might have They haven't been good in a long time. They had that run in the eighties. And I think totally, LaRussa was the manager. But since then it's been a pretty rough run for them. They were good for always liked them. They were good for a couple years with Ozzy again, right? Yeah, That's right..
