"What's going on with criminal activities and The efforts of law enforcement. But John is is pivoting a little bit here. And he and Steve Neal, retired police captain from Chesterfield County have teamed up and they've got a brand new book that's coming out. And I'm thrilled to say that both of these guys, they're here with me. John, Steve. Thanks for being here. Happy New Year. Happy New Year. Thanks for having us someone. You bet, Sir John, let us start with you, My friend. Everybody knows you as the lovely the talented the photogenic the telegenic Crime insider on CBS six. Who knew you were writer? Did you know that? No, I didn't. And it's funny how this all came about about two years ago, the Steven Are you talking just yesterday. About two years ago, I stood Steve driveway and in all of his Excess with his first book, Toxic Boss Blues. And I said, You know, one day I want to write one, he says. Well, how about that one day? Be sometime soon, and that's when we got started on it. Wow. Now, Steve, I have read your first book Toxic Boss blues and I thought it was. Ah, great. Great. Read. Tell me a little bit about you looking at this briquette character and saying, Yeah, I think I can pull a book out of here. Yeah, well, you know, John and I have been working together for about 20 years now, and during that time we got to be good friends, And as he said, we were just standing in the driveway talking and I said, Let's do it. Let's make it happen, and that's that's what we've done. So, Steve, tell me what is this book about a given both of your backgrounds. I've got to imagine there's some sort of criminal activity. It is. We teamed up and what we did. We went back and picked out 15 different, really significant crime cases that occurred either of my career or Jones or both of ours. One or both of us were at the scene of all of these cases, so we we retell the story about these big crimes that took place in the Richmond metro area. But then where John comes in, and they had so much to it is, he tells the story behind the story for each one of those cases, and it makes it really interesting. All right. So John kept give us an indication. Pick out one or two of these These great cases and and give us a little insight as to how you're telling these stories. I mean, for instance, you know, it kind of thinking back about what Steve said is, you know many of us know the, uh, the infamous Harvey murder case in 2006, right? And those Western covered that tragedy know that Uh, Stella Harvey was brought to the house. Just minutes prior to be led to the basement and slaughtered by by Ricky Gray and Ray Dandridge. And the woman that brought her to the house with her own daughter has never talked to anybody. But she sat down and talked with Steve and I from this book. For about an hour and 15 minutes, And it's it's chilling. It's chilling details that You know, I haven't been put out there until this book is released. So, John, when? When you're looking at some of these cases, you you've got a history and a wonderful history of telling stories on camera and you've got a limited amount of time. A couple of minutes here a couple of minutes there. Now even Steve sit down, and boy you can write. For as long as you want, right? As long as you want. I mean, you think you want to keep people's attention, and we wrote about ones that really in my career. There has been a handful that it really Up with me. And in one of my first murders I ever covered was the murder of Kayla Brown on that was back in back in the early two thousands. One of Valentine's Day and part of the story is I guess I'll give away a little bit of it is an image that I captured on scene of detectives carrying a baby's body. Out of the house in the pillowcase, and that image has stuck with me throughout my career, and I've never forgotten the little girl. I've never forgotten her name. I've never forgotten the address and how cold it was, and I stand the corner getting video. It's just something that carry with me my entire career. So, Steve, your Your new book is called bearing Witness to evil and You spent how many years as a police officer and Chesterfields? Almost 30 years. I was in the long four from business. Wow. While you didn't ever think you know, Now that I'm off the job. I'm gonna write a cookbook. I want to get away from all these degenerate bottom feeders I had to deal with for 30 years. Well, you know what's interesting about that is so once you're police also, you're always a place off. You may retire and you may be off the job, but it never. It never gets out of you so to speak. And, as John said, each one of these cases we chose for this book. It wasn't because they were all inclusive of our career. We've been the hundreds and thousands of cases these cases that are featured in this book or once that really had a significant impact. Don't know. Six on our soul and honest as people. Hmm, I did. It's an amazing It's. It's an amazing project of John. I haven't obviously read the book yet for folks that like me are anxious to read it. How long do we have to wait? It's a good question. Way secured with New Year's Eve, we security publisher. Okay, Steve, I'll let you take. I'll let you take it, Steve from here because I'm thinking that you know, maybe is optimistic. But I'm thinking by the end of the month Early February. We're going to start to see something. Okay. I think that time line is right on the mark. I think into January early February, we will have a print paperback copy available Now. In the next couple of weeks, John and I are going to be putting up our own website, and that's gonna be bearing witness to evil. Got calm.

As soon as it becomes available, we'll get it to you. All right. And you guys know that obviously I'm going to pre order, but the caveat is, you're both gonna have to sign it to me. You're cool with that. Of course. Okay. I'm just checking. Yeah, actually, uh, actually, when you go to that Web site in a couple of weeks, we're gonna actually advertise that as an option. There's somebody that wants a signed copy. We're going to do that for you. And we're gonna get it to you. All right, Let me tell you why that's so important. It's not just the idea that It's personalized, but once you guys sign it, they can't return the book. That's why you got to make sure you get us many autographed copies out there is possible because you know it helps out the college funds. Ugo. I thought it was some kind of scheme. Tol put it on eBay and trying it too much. Yeah, well, look, here's all all I could tell you, John. Those are the secrets I learned from Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck. They both told me. Yeah.

Um and they go on to talk about, you know that this is, um It says here that M O B credits all the baseball research community for discovering additional facts, stats and context that exceeded the criteria used by the Special Committee on Baseball Records in 1969 to identify six major league since 18 76. It is MLB's view that the committee's 1969 omission of the Negro Leagues from consideration was clearly an error that demands today's recognition. So there are There are several Negro League organizations that will be put together in there and look, it's long overdue. I mean, obviously a different time in a different world. With what happened. You know if you've ever read, um there are some good books about the Negro leagues ever. I've read one trying to remember the one that I read was called, I think was I think it was called on Lee. The ball was white or something like that, I think is what The name of it, Woz and I'm kind of Ah little bit of a buffer Me and I've read about cool. Papa Bell, Ray Dandridge, Oscar Charleston.

His mantle and the other one is said to be Josh Gibson. Um, so there are a lot of stories and as we say, in the rest of the podcast world rumor and innuendo about what happened with, you know different guys in these leagues and different things like that, and you heard a lot of stories, but you didn't have a lot of statistical data. Back. Something's up, but over these last couple of decades, you know there's been a lot bigger push, really multiple decades now a bigger push to try to get a more statistical analysis of off what some of these guys did. And there are several major leaguers that played in the Negro leagues. I mean, Willie Mays played Hank Aaron. I believe played a year in the Negro Leagues were Campanella. Jackie Robinson. Obviously, before they came, Larry Doby, Minnie Minoso guys like that before they came. You know, and were some of the first waves of black players that came into major league baseball.

"Were. SMART. and. Articulate and and you know very decent guys. And they sort of got lost in the complete story. Roy Campanella until. A certain amount of time had passed. So. Who Else? Besides Hall of fame conjecture and. you know a bill. That would allow them to to be selected by the way FM Manley not not a male by the way it's that's. She was great. Now, the story was a key figure for me by the way. Okay. How so because we've had a couple of conversations around her obviously. Unique on a lot of different fronts for this. She she was special. Okay. she cared about the players. She had. Dynamite personality right and so she and she loves the nurse Eagles. And the players who were on the New York Equals Money Urban Ray Dandridge Willie Wells Larry? Doby But when I interviewed her, she wanted the full story to get out. And, her version of the story. Was the one that I came to believe. which was which was this that? Integration of baseball was coming. There was you know our? Art. Carter. For example. Gave me photo? You know he's good enough for the M- if he's good enough for the navy is good enough for the majors. Chet brewer, a one are. How do you think we feel when a one armed white Guy Pete Gray with no prejudice is in the major leagues and we're not right so and plus there was tremendous agitation. By progressives of all sorts? In New York where there were three teams. So, integration was coming. And the smart people in Baseball everybody knew it. But Commissioner Landis. Was The hold up Bill Vac tells the story that. He was going to put Negro he and he knew he knew he was very close. Abe. Staffer Steen who was the globetrotter guy but also the. The traveling secretary with the Chicago American giants at one time.

"Sort of define end or explain. The Negro. Leagues generally. So arguably maybe not so arguable you your work actually Kinda. Took a nice spot next to. To to Peterson's book on the bookshelf, which is high praise right and Oh yes good. Well, I would. I would say what I, what I did. And then Peterson actually wrote me a lovely note after the book came out. was I tried to put it in the context of American history. And argue that the black leagues were so important. To the history of the both the civil rights movement, but also the history of American. and then if in there because at that time during the the Haiti of the Negro Leagues, it was among the most important cultural institutions and Black America. The papers followed it. The people, black people all over the country, follow the teams They attracted huge crowds. And they were just a pillar. Of Life in Black America at the time. What was your approach though Peterson's was more I. would argue historical certainly had statistics in the back of it and. It was pretty even keeled I think. Maybe a little bit of the flavor of first person narrative, but it feels to me like yours was. Is. Frankly, a little closer to people that were there. who were pretty close maybe to the people who were there? You know I wouldn't call it a second. Voice but perhaps you know one point five. Generation away from. Axel being. Peterson was ahead in for the groundbreaker another person who is really terrific in that time ahead of me was John Hallway. who collected the voices of the black players in Rota A book that was. Full of anecdotes and stories from some of the greatest players. But what I tried to do was put it in its cultural context. So there was a chapter in my book called the cult of professionalism because these players they were a professional ballplayers and they were proud that they were professionals and took pride in their craft. And so I tried to. To to make that point essentially I was lucky I made a radio series NPR before then. where I gotTa win around the country and interviewed. Really well. Buck Leonard. Ray Dandridge, all the all the great players of the sort of second wave of the Negro Leagues in other words guys who? Spent the vast majority of their career, all their careers in the Negro. Leagues. But weren't the guys who were there at the nineteen twenties the first couple of. Years of the nineteen twenties although we got a few of them Judy Johnson who's now in the hall of fame Dave Archer who's was was tremendous person figure Jess Hubbard. So got a lot of stories from that period, but the bulk of our material with the thirties which was. The Heyday of sexual page and Josh Gibson and people like that I. Think it's important. Also put this in context too because you here we are in twenty twenty and You know we're also really talking about a time Both of these books the radio stuff that you're talking about and as well as all the other sort of stuff around it is is. I wouldn't want to call it. I'm trying to sort of created a divining line here I and I think frankly that was an is. historically, the the legendary baseball series by Ken Burns on pbs back in the day right..

"So he had star quality written all over him. And he was a better baseball player. Jackie. Robinson was at that time. Monty was a superstar for the Newark Eagles. Baseball was Jackie's Weakest Sport, which again tells you how talented Jackie Robinson was because he becomes a hall of fame caliber. Baseball player. So there were other guys in the Negro Leagues who a better baseball player. Jackie Robinson. But that that really good may Negro League I didn't get a chance and then there's other superstar guys were too old. You get Saturday when he was reportedly forty two years old. He was likely fifty two at that time because most new will believe is at least ten years older than what he claimed to be and only bill vague would have given. SATCHEL. But some of the other guys from the Negro Leagues. They just didn't get a fair shake. You know a guy like Ray Dandridge who was a tremendous player in the Negro Leagues well when he he gets up to the Minneapolis Millers. And the Minneapolis Millers were the New York giants triple eighteen. Well Dandridge his name MVP of the millers when he was almost thirty eight years old. You know as well as I do they were not going to take a thirty eight year old black man to take a young white kid job it wasn't going to happen out. Okay. How good he was and so yes, he was bitter about it because he would play out playing all these young kids and there was no realistic chance for him to get their. SATCHEL pages may be the single most legendary. Negro Leagues Baseball. Player. One of the most legendary baseball players in any league. and. He's an interesting case to me because. There's besides him. Simply having a record of extraordinary performance particularly when he was younger as a barnstorming player in the Negro. Leagues. There's these two really interesting facets to him as a guy one is he had extraordinary success in the major leagues as a middle aged man. But there's this other thing about him that I think is really interesting which is. As extraordinary as he is player, he's perhaps even more extraordinary as a story like he obviously understood his brand and. He was getting a cut of the game and he knew how to make his his life into a story and was one of the most you know, no pun intended colorful baseball players who who's ever played baby. Right. And that seems to me like it is reflective of a two sided coin, which is on the one hand. There is no doubt that in the Negro Leagues, they were playing a more entertaining form of baseball that was more fun and more exciting, right? On the other hand because. Disaster page. Could strike somebody out with his hat on his foot, throwing it backwards through his legs. Whatever like because these guys could do anything But. Those stories is amazing as they are I think in part became the story of the Negro Leagues and can run the risk of. Diminishing the quality of play in the the extraordinary qualities of the of the business and its significance in American history. And also, in some cases, reinforcing negative stereotypes that white people have propagated about people of Color through American history certainly, you know the like. All smoke no fire, whatever. Voting and so forth, and that's why Jackie had to be the first guy. And again, that doesn't mean that others couldn't have done it. But this was so much more than about baseball ability. And for everything that you just mentioned. Jackie defied the stereotypical depiction of African American athletes..

"It is the debut of the great Jackie Robinson into organized Major League white baseball and that was April fifteenth of nineteen forty seven it was an amazing time in this country's history after World War two the armed forces have been integrated yet some laws are being passed in the state of New York outlawing discrimination so branch Rickey who was running the Dodgers in those days saw the handwriting on the wall and said well it's time to bring a black baseball player into Major League Baseball and the player he chose was the great Jackie Robinson life in those days are not simple for Jackie Robinson he was a shortstop for the Kansas city monarchs judge Landis who is the commissioner of baseball had a rule that sort of a gentleman's agreement with everyone in baseball that baseball would not be integrated even though he denied saying that he passed away in November of nineteen forty four so the wheels got in motion and Jackie Robinson was signed there in the summer of nineteen forty six actually nineteen forty five to be part of the Montreal Royals the Dodgers top farm team in the International League where he starred in nineteen forty six in April fifteenth nineteen forty seven he came up to the major leagues it's important to acknowledge a state and social history in baseball history but just think what baseball was like we've covered so many aspects of baseball in the Negro leagues and the great players satchel Paige an Oscar Charleston Buck o'neil and ray Dandridge and Josh Gibson all the legendary names and they were not allowed to play in Major League Baseball so Jackie was the one that branch Rickey chosen he chose a man who'd gone to UCLA he was in the armed forces we would sit in the back of a bus that was court court martial for that we got a man who is not afraid to turn the other cheek and that's what Jackie had to do he made his debut April fifteenth nineteen forty seven this could not have taken place without the help of a sports writer the man who I got to meet and we've had him on the show and he was Lester Rodney Lester Rodney was the sports editor for get ready the daily worker the communist newspaper in the thirties Lester Rodney was a great sports fans saw the daily worker thought the sports section was lousy wrote him a letter and they said why don't you become the sports editor and he did so from about the nineteen thirty six thirty seven before that well he went into World War two in the early forties of course and it's Jackie was signed in nineteen forty five vibrant tricky Lester Rodney was the leading voice on the integration of baseball judge Landis why not judge Landis can you hear me west Rodney is a very very critical person in the United States social history as well as baseball history at American innings dot O. R. G. which is my wonderful website that then lead to follow and I have put together with many many many contributions from fans American innings dot orgy you can see the movie about Lester Rodney the crime of the big leagues where I am the voice of Lester Rodney so we never forget April fifteenth nineteen forty seven the day that Jackie made his debut in changed baseball American history social history legal history and everything that you can connect to the integration of the United States in baseball came with Jackie Robinson if he failed who knows what would have happened but Jackie didn't he was a star I was in Brooklyn little kids seeing Jackie Robinson I didn't think anything of it but number forty two still warms my heart every time I see it so April fifteenth nineteen forty seven is a special day for us we talked to some very very important people I think about Jackie Robinson that we can share some of those interviews with you today the first is Tim Flannery of course the third base coach for the giants for many years Tim Flannery tells us his thoughts and Jackie.

"So they say okay. We're revoking are plea deal you know we're going to charge you with accessory to murder or something like that but that's a moot point. Well it seems unlikely. I don't know if it's moot because if it were thing maybe it could happen happened. But we'd have to hear from one of our lawyer friends to be sure but I'm pretty sure it's almost written in stone right because there are plenty of people who've appeal healed after making a plea and have never seen that work right now. Chelsea's parents filed a civil suit against FRAC- for wrongful death negligence civil civil conspiracy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. So that's ongoing. Right now. Kaley is in the custody of Chelsea's parents parts. They plan to adopt her. Yeah sad case. Oh horrendous it really is I mean. It's brutal isn't it. It's awful. I'm just so glad that he'll never be out. I mean and then the whole planning to kill people from prison that just shows you. He really is horribly evil here. You know just doesn't think twice about taking someone's life which of course you know. He took away his daughter's mother so if he's willing to do that he would be willing to kill anyone some references for this case where state of Colorado documents including search warrants Phrase's arrest warrant and other attachments catchments. We also got a great deal of information from Denver. Seven from Dateline NBC. They had an episode season. Twenty seven episode twenty. Three forty eight hours had two episodes season thirty two episode. Three and episode twelve episode twelve was after the trial kind of an update episode. assode which I think is kind of cheating because half of that episode is old stuff from the first episode and they do a lot of rehashing. Not My favorite are intro. An an ultra music was written and produced by Tristen Capelle. So thank you trysted. If you haven't joined team Tigr ever I just like to say it's worth considering. We recently tackled. The story of Amber Hilbert being a young wife accused of pushing her husband out of a window. Twenty five stories up our commercial free members only episodes episodes come out each and every month less there's a backlog of about forty episodes that are all you are solicited too as soon as you become a member. Recent episodes include include the murder of Adrian Reynolds John Lists family murders. AB Shurmur the white killing preacher. Christopher Porco who went after his parents with an axe and the list goes on and on I was thinking the other day. There's some older ones I really think are quite good that I'm proud of like our OJ Simpson series. He's also our interview with Scuba expert in Australia about the underwater death of newlywed Tina Watson. One of my favorite episodes he was just fascinating assassinating so knowledgeable and you can be a tiger member for as little as four dollars a month when you join.

There's an excellent place on the website and you can learn or and all about T- public and all the great stuff they have right. Just click on shop the brewery on our website and you will be amazed at the variety of things inch he. I think people are surprised when they click on it. Because people right to me and ask where can I get you know a true cranberry t shirt or stuff like that and then when they tell them to go there and they're like oh so we probably should let people know about that once in a while just just figuring that it's the New Year we we hadn't done it for a while Bro. It in share. Okay Dick I hear you have some good feedback today. The dogs were telling me all about it earlier. So what have we got. I got a few emails today. Okay why don't you read the first one. So this is from Jerry who has a case suggestion and a beer suggestion. So he says I'm a new listener listener. So very glad I found your channel as a criminology major. I of course find true crime very interesting. I watch a ton of true crime documentaries. My case suggestion is to discuss the crimes of serial killer. Larry Eyler he's also known as the interstate killer or the highway killer. He's believed to have killed at least twenty one teenage boys and young men between nineteen eighty two and nineteen eighty four in the midwestern United States mostly Indiana Illinois and. There's a book co freed to kill the true story of Larry Eyler very interesting the Sad fact is that he was once arrested on charges but then was released because Indiana law enforcement illegally detained him and this caused all the evidence collected by Illinois law enforcement to be thrown out so he's released only to continue his horrible crimes that was until he tortured and murdered a sixteen year. Old boy named Daniel Bridges that he is arrested for a second time. So that sounds like an interesting case. He goes on. He wants wants to have a beer from Tara. Brewing company been in operation since eighteen thirty seven. So it's one of the original nine commercial breweries. He's in the United States and the second oldest operating brewery in the United States. So He's got of your Code Madam Brown which is a British Brown Ale. English brownell thinks it's very good so I'm all set. I've got a case and a beer ready to go now. I know that you just edited the hell out of that but it seems like he does Abi Review like you right. He's got some stuff in there about bready toasty multi so he seems like he might might be a bit of a beer expert he does yes so you guys would probably like to talk. You guys would get along great well if we talk about beer. It's always a fun subject. Well for you not for everybody but for you and probably for Jerry. So thanks Jerry. You're thanks a lot so the next email is from Christine esteem with a case suggestion. Love and admiration for a well presented. podcast not to mention your fabulous banter just watched the Theresa ciphers murder trial while she was a Florida doctor of holistic medicine. Three horrible killings for Insurance Money Mark. Her husband orchestrated the whole thing. His is two best friends hammered her to death so that sentence was a little weird. But you get the gist. Yeah so she's Practitioner of holistic medication. Theresa Theresa Iverson Receivers Right. She was found bludgeoned to death in her Florida home. She had been in New York with her husband and children over the weekend and she had come home alone own because she's due to work the next day now. Her husband was not a suspect initially but as they were investigating the murder they found evidence that she in her husband had what would be considered an open marriage and he had a four million dollar life insurance policies on her so little motive there he into friends of his charged with the murder as Christine said. The trial is ongoing so was he. Dr No sounds brutal. So we'll definitely look into that. Thanks Christine I WANNA see how much information I can get on that because the initial look up I did didn't have too much much series if we can find some more. Okay so we have a case suggestion from Marianne Jilin Dick and contacting you about a case from two thousand thousand six known as the Richmond spree murderers or the Harvey family and Baskerville family. Murders as I am from Richmond. I've been aware of this case since the the beginning however I've never found any television media and virtually no internet media about them which seems so odd since these murders were quite sensational on on January. First of two thousand six as the Harvey family was getting ready for New Year's Day party. Ricky Gray and Ray Dandridge uncle and nephew but close in age judge got into the Harvey home and murdered them all including their four year old and nine year old daughters parents. Kathy and Bryan were well known in Richmond. And as he was a local musician. Some notoriety and she owned a popular shop called world of Mirth Ashley Baskerville was for a short time. Ray Dandridge girlfriend the men stayed with the Best Greville family around the time of the harvey murders days later they murdered the Baskerville family including Ashley early. There are many more details to this case. That are fascinating. As an aside Kathy Harvey was half sister to actor Steven culp well known from the TV. He's show desperate housewives. I really hope you will choose to do this on your podcast and bring it the attention it deserves. Thank you Marianne. Well thanks Marianne. I am really shocked. I haven't heard of this. This is really crazy. It has wiped out to families and the other thing. Some of the research is doing one of them either. Ricky Gray Gray Oray Dander. Jackie remember which is also thought to have murdered his mother. Wow so these are two nuts two psychopaths absolutely but interesting to know another one that I wanna see how much information I can get. Yeah let's do that. We'll look okay. So why don't you read our final email for today I will woah missile beer quicken. This is from Trina case suggestion. Hey from Compton California. I've been listening to you all for about a year now and I'm obsessed I used is to listen to another podcast but it was making me paranoid and giving me nightmares. Surprisingly I love true crime. been a bit scary however your podcast is not not scary at all and I feel it. Israel accident informed while listening. Please research disturbing case of Luke that Magna of Canada he actually acquitted himself murdering and dismembering a victim and uploading on Youtube. I regret watching the low. Happy clarity from two thousand nine. Two thousand ten wasn't as good. It has it is today or it might be traumatized. He also uploaded videos himself killing animals. I'd love to hear you and Jill discuss stay married stay cute and stay my faves. Well extreme. I think we can do that. We're not scary at all. Yeah now the reason I put this in. Because we've had several people suggests this one. Well we even got a book and read it and decided we weren't going to do it. That's what I wanted to say. It's just too gross. It's gross and the randomness. The Minister of it. I don't feel it gives us a lot to discuss because we really liked to discuss people's history motivations at least idea that's how I feel about it in the randomness of this sociopath just really didn't appeal to me. I mean we'll keep it on the back burner. Trina but it's not one. That's really a priority for us right now. At least it certainly isn't. It might not ever be. It might not be but we appreciate your email and if you have any other cases we'd love to hear about what you think we should do for another case case. We're always open case suggestions.

Her husband was not a suspect initially but as they were investigating the murder they found evidence that she in her husband had what would be considered an open marriage and he had a four million dollar life insurance policies on her so little motive there he into friends of his charged with the murder as Christine said. The trial is ongoing so was he. Dr No sounds brutal. So we'll definitely look into that. Thanks Christine I WANNA see how much information I can get on that because the initial look up I did didn't have too much much series if we can find some more. Okay so we have a case suggestion from Marianne Jilin Dick and contacting you about a case from two thousand thousand six known as the Richmond spree murderers or the Harvey family and Baskerville family. Murders as I am from Richmond. I've been aware of this case since the the beginning however I've never found any television media and virtually no internet media about them which seems so odd since these murders were quite sensational on on January. First of two thousand six as the Harvey family was getting ready for New Year's Day party. Ricky Gray and Ray Dandridge uncle and nephew but close in age judge got into the Harvey home and murdered them all including their four year old and nine year old daughters parents. Kathy and Bryan were well known in Richmond. And as he was a local musician. Some notoriety and she owned a popular shop called world of Mirth Ashley Baskerville was for a short time. Ray Dandridge girlfriend the men stayed with the Best Greville family around the time of the harvey murders days later they murdered the Baskerville family including Ashley early. There are many more details to this case. That are fascinating. As an aside Kathy Harvey was half sister to actor Steven culp well known from the TV. He's show desperate housewives. I really hope you will choose to do this on your podcast and bring it the attention it deserves. Thank you Marianne. Well thanks Marianne. I am really shocked. I haven't heard of this. This is really crazy. It has wiped out to families and the other thing. Some of the research is doing one of them either. Ricky Gray Gray Oray Dander. Jackie remember which is also thought to have murdered his mother. Wow so these are two nuts two psychopaths absolutely but interesting to know another one that I wanna see how much information I can get. Yeah let's do that. We'll look okay. So why don't you read our final email for today I will woah missile beer quicken. This is from Trina case suggestion. Hey from Compton California. I've been listening to you all for about a year now and I'm obsessed I used is to listen to another podcast but it was making me paranoid and giving me nightmares. Surprisingly I love true crime. been a bit scary however your podcast is not not scary at all and I feel it. Israel accident informed while listening. Please research disturbing case of Luke that Magna of Canada he actually acquitted himself murdering and dismembering a victim and uploading on Youtube. I regret watching the low. Happy clarity from two thousand nine. Two thousand ten wasn't as good. It has it is today or it might be traumatized. He also uploaded videos himself killing animals. I'd love to hear you and Jill discuss stay married stay cute and stay my faves. Well extreme. I think we can do that. We're not scary at all. Yeah now the reason I put this in. Because we've had several people suggests this one. Well we even got a book and read it and decided we weren't going to do it. That's what I wanted to say. It's just too gross. It's gross and the randomness. The Minister of it. I don't feel it gives us a lot to discuss because we really liked to discuss people's history motivations at least idea that's how I feel about it in the randomness of this sociopath just really didn't appeal to me. I mean we'll keep it on the back burner. Trina but it's not one. That's really a priority for us right now. At least it certainly isn't. It might not ever be. It might not be but we appreciate your email and if you have any other cases we'd love to hear about what you think we should do for another case case. We're always open case suggestions. Absolutely Yep we can never have too many to go through a men sometimes. There are a lot that don't appeal. You're right Yup. Okay Finish your beer. Let's hit okay. Well thank you. Everyone for listening. We'll see you next week at the quiet end by by by. Hi The the.

"And if you have a lecture or Google home just say play WFAN and you'll be locked into the fan this past week. What appeared to be an open door for Cuban players to come to this country to play ball was slam shut. It's the latest chapter in the tumultuous history of Cuban baseball. The game was thriving for decades. They're in a place where the color. Of a person's skin. Didn't matter the nineteen forty seven Brooklyn Dodgers chose to hold spring training there. But everything changed in nineteen Fifty-nine. Fidel Castro and his revolutionaries came out of the hills to overthrow the government. And baseball's golden age in Cuba came to an end baseball would never be the same on this island paradise for the remainder of the century and important effect to this day. Our guest is written last season's in Havana, the Castro revolution in the end of professional baseball in Cuba from the university of Nebraska press. And it's author say's are brio Caesar. Great to have you on the show. Thank you for joining me. Hi, thanks for having. What was your inspiration for writing this book? Well, I was born in Cuba and my family left. When about five months old my dad growing up. He was a big fan of Dodd is one of the four teams in the Cuban winter league when I was a kid. He would tell me all these stories about American players coming there in the winter to play from America guys who went on to become hall of famers, Tommy Lasorda, Ray Dandridge money urban, and when I came to sports writer, I started finding these guys that are tirees in Florida and interviewing them for stories collecting, they're like elections hoping to do a book. I finally got to do the first one that hardball which came out in twenty fifteen and this book is picks up where that first book left off Havana was home to the sugar kings, which was Cincinnati's AAA team from nineteen fifty four to nineteen sixty what happened to the sugar kings when the revolutionary when the revolution occurred. Well, they they were moving along and in nineteen fifty nine when Castro came to power organized baseball the sugar kings. They actually thought that the worst behind them and the brighter days lay ahead. But then as the government began to show signs of dipping toward communism in the conflicts that relation between the US and Cuba deteriorated things got so bad that the international league started putting together contingency plans, potentially moving the club. And that's in fact, what happened in nineteen sixty day midway through the season in July. They were on the roads long trip and Frank Shaughnessy. The president of the international league finally pulled the plug order that the club be relocated to Jersey City. The move happened so fast that they had to stitch Jersey City over the chest of the home uniform that they normally war with. Read underneath words, Jersey City. Yeah. But underneath it said go on that was there for the for the home jerseys. They had to stitch over a patch that for their debut in Jersey City, Tony Perez, Tony Leyva, Louis Tian, just to name three Caesar talk. Wistfully about the last days of freedom in Cuba before Castro changed life. Is they knew it, and what a what a wonderful program ESPN put on the air of few years ago chronicling Louis returning home after so many years. Yeah. Those guys were they were able to to leave. They're able to to go to come back for the nineteen sixty major league season. But because there were this point that no diplomatic relations between us and Cuban they had to go through Mexico to come here. And then they face the choice. Yeah. They could try to come back home, but the country not be able to leave the country again or they could stay in the US to continue their major league careers, perhaps not returned to their homeland. And that's exactly what happened Louis t of himself told me that it was his dad he was planning on coming to Cuba for his honeymoon. He had to play in Mexico at the time. And his dad is going and told him don't come back. You may not be able to leave. And in fact, he wasn't reunited with his parents until nineteen seventy five here. I remember seeing that at Fenway park. I will motionless it was to have shots of of Louis theon stead there. I run a cly Castro was a big. Baseball fan. But he was not Caesar a big fan of his country's best ball players leaving their home fields behind. That's right. In fact, a for decades the Cuban government blocked any players from coming to the US to play. What had been a tradition that protected gone on for decades players from Cuba coming to the US and American player going to Cuba in the winter league? But that all ended in nineteen sixty one the final season of the Cuban league. And yeah, you know, the players the only way they were able to leave you know, for the ensuing decades was by defecting. This year seventeen players from Cuba appeared on major league opening day rosters, and we know many of the names Chapman and cesspit is here in New York. Henry Morales Jose Abreu, who's visiting with the Chicago White Sox this weekend against the gang keys. Where hey so Lehrer has Monte GRANDE. Del yonder Orlando yonder Alonzo to name just a few Pugh had a harrowing experience in during extortion at the hands of smugglers the stories of LeVine in Orlando. Hernandez. Do are are well, well, chronicled these are these are movies the way these people have gotten off the island Ray or Donas with the Mets. Yeah. You know, when when the the section, I started it was really kind of on an individual basis a player bite slip away from his team in crowded airport, or he might dug out the back door of the hotel and international competition. But in it's become really a big business and big illegal business. The the wake Cuban players recently have been gotten gotten off the island they've had to hire smugglers and human traffickers to get them there. And the results of that is that they've been shaking down for more money than what was originally agreed on. They make players turn over some percentage of their future. Earnings major league contract, they got one. So it so baseball try to come up with an agreement with Cuba. I know I'm going to talk about that in just in just a second. But they've been hundreds of players that have defected just in the last five years. Yes. That's that's the figure I saw a Reuters report three hundred and fifty Cuban players since two twenty fourteen have defected, which is a staggering number. When you consider the number that are on opening day Las that he said this starting this season. There's certainly a lot more in the minors. But that means that number three fifty probably means that there's a whole lot more that aren't even playing baseball. They might be stuck in third country. Or maybe they made it here to the US. But who knows what they're doing right now? The when we see the Cuban team show up at the world baseball classic. There's always instantaneous respect that is granted them because of their of their history. What is the level of play there now, especially in light of all of these defections? Well, they they used to dominate international. Yeah. And from everything I've read and people talking to people who actually know what the level of play there. The the the the level has really been hit by all these defections as I said, the three hundred fifty since two twenty fourteen we've seen the stars who have made big impacts in the major leagues last ten fifteen years, and that's definitely had an effect in bringing down the level of play in the SETI enough. You know, let's Cuba's national series. Those are the teams that feed into the Cuban national team that we see playing international competition. She's a brio so has written a wonderful book called lessees in Havana, the Castro revolution and the end of professional baseball in Cuba until this week Caesar it appeared that MLB and the Cuban state was on the verge of finalising an agreement that would have allowed Cuban athletes to play in this country without having to defect as. Refugees. Major league baseball has long argued that creating a safe legal path for Cuban players to sign with US teams was a human rights issue. But this week the Trump administration declared the deal illegal. You wrote an op Ed piece this past week in USA today, entitled Trump nixing MLB, Cuba deal means more trafficking. Tell us about what you wrote. Well, yeah. The major league baseball in Cuba announced back in December that they had an agreement that any player twenty five years of age and have played six seasons over there would be eligible to negotiate and sign with teams here, and then even be able to return to Cuba, freely going back and forth. They were able to do that able to negotiate with Cuba despite the embargo because they about administration had given major league baseball permission. They had found that they declared that the keeping baseball federation was not independent of the Cuban government. But then the Trump administration the treasury department, the just last week declared that in fact, we even baseball federation is part of the government and the and the deal is no longer valid? So I think that what you'll see now is you'll see players continue to try to defect that because the incentive is just too great because of the millions that they can make potentially here. The US playing the majors. And if they're going to continue to the fact, they are probably going to continue to use Mugler's in order to get out of Cuba and risk their lives that way and the decision came just days after the Cuban baseball federation released the list of thirty four players that it said were eligible to sign with US teams. And some of the players actually expected to sign and play this season. Potentially. Although the that group was I saw the ages range from seventeen to twenty five. So they hadn't reached that threshold of age and experience that was set in the agreement. So this is the Cuban government making making these guys that were younger available. I read that there weren't stars. Among that group. I wonder just how what the panel level was one of those players. I would I would love to see a list of those names just to see who they were and what scouts thought of them. But maybe that was just sort of an initial offering just to see how this agreement would play out. But now we'll never know under the agreement players would have received one hundred percent of their signing bonus. But the signing team would pay a posting fee to the Cuban baseball federation, and the critics of the agreement failed that the posting fee going to the federation immense to paying the Cuban government ransom for the baseball players. Well, that's exactly right. They may have been an OB made them giving distance -ation to to negotiate with the baseball federation the previous administration, but it's really hard to argue that the keeping baseball federation isn't a part of the Cuban government. I mean, the Cuban government controls pretty much everything on the island being communist government authoritarian government. So it it is hard to to to argue against the the idea that that that the the federation is part of the government Caesar brio. So has written last season's in Havana the Castro revolution in the end of professional baseball in Cuba talk. If you will about how dominant the Cuban teams were in the late fifties in the until Castro came down the hill with regard to how they performed in the Caribbean World Series. Yeah. They were you know, the World Series started in nineteen forty nine. And the first twelve before the it was halted for for several years if I right? I think Cuba may have won seven of them. You know, the level of play in the Cuban league keeping winter league at that time was probably somewhere between AAA and the majors you had players certainly in that area in the fifties..

Very top Haiti humanitarian crisis back to the life of Don Newcombe early life. If it shows them talent and the other players returned from the war, and they return to the team. We might not have a place for you. I said, well, whatever you say, whatever you do is fine with me. I just like a chance and the seventeen she gave me the chance and we went to Virginia university and Richmond Virginia where we trained the Nogi goals. And I made the team manager was Willie wells, and we have some great players on the team. Ray Dandridge, Willie wells. Hall of fame in fact, now, and they were on the team at that time, and they taught me a lot about life, and I had to grow up fast and become a man fad because I was playing the man's game within the man's wife. And we traveled a lot on the bus and going against the homestead grays. And Josh Gibson buck landed who Papa bell and these are all legends. I knew it. My dad used to take me to see the play in New Jersey and now playing against them. We're gonna play against them. If I stayed with the team, and I stayed with team that played against him and the pitch against John Gibson, buck, Leonard and coupon. Josh Gibson broke me out of at a young age though on what they call them baseball crossfire Ryan that was throwing hill coming when you get two strikes on Josh. The club told me you wanna get Josh out throw them across Wyoming strikes all across fire any the ball of centerfield in Griffith stadium in Washington DC. And I didn't think the center fielder was ever gonna turn around and face me. Again, the run the ball trying to catch up almost tore down the centerfield wall. I never through another crossfire and all my baseball career that ended me with crossfire the ball. He never got. Got the dribble. Isn't the fastest runner in baseball. Right. He got the trip world. So we got the triple. I decided I wouldn't use that pitch anymore. Josh pass away at thirty six years old, and it was a tragedy. With John Gibson and some of the others tragedy at the time they had such prejudice in major league baseball. Right. And these men didn't get a chance to play baseball at that time. And then along came the advent of Jackie and myself when ROY Larry Doby leagues, and then the door was open the door is open where you could play now. And if you had the talent and an old man by the name of central page payment with the Cleveland Indians in the American League. And I think in nineteen fifty became rookie of the year in nineteen fifty in American League Jackie Robinson, heat, and he got the color line and forty seven. You made followed a dodger. I. Mr. Ricky on the dodgers at the time who made all this happen. He was using a stair step procedure. Jackie O one level. And then moved him up and forty seven right from forty six when we sign a forty seven and Jackie now with the dodgers. And of course, in between though, they bought up a pitcher named Dan Bankhead to the dodgers in nineteen forty seven before ROY. And he didn't stay very long. He went to the minor leagues. And then ROY came up nineteen forty eight after integrating the American Association than in AAA baseball. And I was at Montreal in nineteen forty eight and I have won seventeen games and help pitch our team to the World Series that year. Dodger top farm team. And I was hoping I'd get a chance, and I think you the chance I had to go back to Montreal forty nine even after winning seventeen and losing eight now where my skin white Ryan, I would have gotten to the dodgers and the gotten a chance to play on the major league team in spring training. But I never got that chance. How long did you spend in minor leagues? I was in the minor leagues three years. Plus, I started in nineteen forty six forty seven forty eight and then part of forty nine.

"Red hot Boston, Red Sox. Alex Cora, give listen. Here are the magic Boston Red Sox, Alex Cora, and your team all to a great start this year, gimme broad overview in terms of this season, what's made this team? So good. First of all, we're talented does the most important thing, and I feel that there's a lot of guys in this group that the last two years they fell short, their goals, they lessening the ins and they love to the Astro. So I think that's pushing them. There's not too many rings in this clubhouse. So that's another thing. And at the same time I do feel that they have but into what the new group has bring to the table. There's a team that honestly, no, because I manage him, but I feel that they show up. They just information they go, they use it. And then at the end of day, if we win, we win. If we lose, we turn the page and we showed the next trade deadline. You went out. And acquired a guy like Ian Kinser. He's on the disabled list right now, but tell me a little bit about the moves you guys made and how you feel about your team now, as opposed to what you were before the deadline. PD situation doesn't put ROY, so we have to be ready in case he doesn't come back. I still believe that a one point he's going to contribute this season, but obviously you got to be prepared. We were talking about it during meetings, and I felt that one more bat was going to help us out as far as putting the volume play into six or seven spot with all the traffic that we're going to have. We put that guy there. He's gonna his going to contribute, you move in front of situation that it wasn't good because all the injuries and you put him here and you can see that he'd recharge or or his back in two days, like he's back to what he was in. Obviously defensively, he's going to help us out at the same time. We can help Brock and then noon ING to keeping healthy and rested. We're hoping he comes back sooner rather than later. And he'll be ready to play where we are as far as the rivalry between these two teams because it seems like at times it's been kind of simmering a little bit, but you guys obviously have gotten the better of things so far. But what what can you speak to as far as the rivalry where it stands at the moment? I didn't feel that both fan bases get what they wanted in the off season. They Twitter for standing. There were happy with it with us. We signed Mitch. Then we sign JD and we noon years when both teams are playing at this level is intense is intense. Every game matters. We know that we know where we had into division and we know how good they are. So I if feels like every day you play, you win or lose. Then you look at the the score war. And I know people say, we don't look at the scoreboard. We'll wait till September, but we'll be looking scoreboard sins, like mid April and said, the manager, Alex Cora got thrown out of the game the other night, something I don't think did it happen as a player to the player, Alex Cora. Happen to the bench coach, Alex Cora. Tell me what happened. Yeah. And that as a player as bench goes last year, took me like ten pitches to. The only difference is that. Here you have to talk to the media after the game last year. So I could do whatever I want in the clubhouse, but just one of those situations, I failed that how they reacted too quick. As far as the warning, either gonna appreciate the pitch. Obviously he's our best player and probably the best player in the big leagues right now. So I just made my point not too polite and they threw me out, hey, last thing been a long week for you. How you feel right now is being it's been tough. I mean, between the trading deadline and the less of Audi JD's Julia tag is my buddy, his son. And obviously this series is is in tough, but their stuff before besides baseball, and that's the way I put it. I think that's the way that I may be able to to to survive or to keep going because I know there's just a game and then I have my family. I have to have to deal with away from the field, and that's what keeps me fresh. We video looking forward for the day tomorrow. That's gonna be a great one in Toronto and then go get him on Tuesday. Thanks to the time. I thank you for. Bottom is the chief executive of our uniform and logo weekly quiz. He's a graphic artist whose work can be sent on ballfields all across America all around the world, Todd, good to have you back. Butcher is good to be here with you. Her. All right. So this week as we do these weekly uniform presentation, you're going to be talking about the Pittsburgh Pirates. We've got the puck goes and the groundbreaking uniforms that they did you on July sixteenth nineteen seventy that night. The pirates open Pittsburgh's new three rivers stadium. When they took the field, they were clad in rid illusionary new synthetic uniforms, a clean break from the traditional heavy flannels. That ball club is had been wearing for more than a century. The uniforms were formed fitting and boldly striped. They were the first pullover jerseys in modern MLB history as well as the first built Louis pants. The new look was widely applauded, although the pants took some getting used to the Pittsburgh post gazette noted quote, there are no buttons on the shirts or pants which resemble ski pants the Pittsburgh long white. John's whatever the case, the pirates new look sparked the revolution, two and a half years later every and it'll be. Clubbed me the pivot away from flannel the belt lists and button lists. Look to cold to the majority of clubs adopting those features over the next several years. The pirates won the World Series a year later with these uniform cemented their status as fan favorites in the steel city. So gentleman, I give you the Pittsburgh Pirates and their ski pants their belt. Listen button less uniforms. As we celebrate the twentieth of thirty teams and thirty uniforms and dozens of players were safe from heatstroke with. Would you agree with that? I would say so. They were. They were built for for comfort and practicality as well as a little something different on the on the static field, right Todd before we get to this week's quiz. Tell me about the event. You have coming up the hall of fame. All right. This coming Wednesday, the eighth. I will be in Cooperstown signing copies of my book winning ugly. I'll also have a short presentation and the bullpen theater at the hall of fame in Cooperstown one PM on the. Station, and it is free with admission to the hall. So I would love to see some of our listeners up there. Let's make it happen. Absolutely. And Todd, as a VO described UniFrance not only are you graphic artists, but man, you are a baseball historian, you know it so well. So I would encourage everybody to go and and meet with Todd plus he's a good guy, Todd, you're a good guy, especially in those weeks when you allow me to win the uniform and logo question, we we had, we had indignation rage Virgina Alexa against me on Twitter. So I'll tell you what gentleman. I have gone ahead and I have reviewed. I have like no secret. I have a secret fault here at them the health of the chief headquarters, and I've gone into that vault. I've unlocked with the sixteen keys, and I've reviewed every question from here on out and I don't see any controversy from here in Seoul, the conclusion of the season, but I will throw all of that out with the with the console. That I, I don't go for subterfuge or, you know, there's nothing underhanded with these questions. So don't start looking in places where you shouldn't be looking, Josh. Yeah, I was just looking directly in front of me. I I had my blinders on and I thought that something was a very obvious answer and I feel like I was robbed, but listen, I can accept the ruling on just know that I'm going to be playing with a real fire in my belly for the remainder of the season. I will not let this one get away. Justice sounding like the thousand nine hundred five Saint Louis cardinals, right. I mean just constantly complained another team that divide another team that was robbed. Yes, exact- just remember all that Todd, as we go forward here with the quiz, I'm drinking from now on apt comparison. All right.

This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Here's Jeremy shop and our special celebration of the legacy of Jackie Robinson who this week in one thousand nine forty, seven broke baseball's color line. Our next guest is the author of a new book about a contemporary of Jackie's, particularly in the black baseball world at the time. His name was already Wilson. The is Gaylon white, and the book is singles and smiles how Artie Wilson broke baseball's color barrier. And it's a pleasure to welcome Gaylon white to the show. Thank you for being with us Mr White. Thank you, Jeremy. Preciado it Gaylon. What do you mean? Exactly? When you say that already Wilson broke baseball's color barrier was the first black to play for the Oakland oaks. Also Seattle Rainiers in the closely. The first black was John Ritchie with the San Diego Padres in nineteen forty eight. When Ardy joined organized baseball and forty nine. He joined the Padres he and Luque's Stor. So they were right behind John Ritchie and breaking the color barrier. One of the things that was pointed out to me by fella named truck Stevens who's the oldest living majorly ballplayer. Now he's ninety nine years old. I interviewed Chuck years ago and always remember to this quote about already he said already carried the banner. Well, when it was important, the only guys who get credit or the guys with big league careers, but the Ardy Wilson's were as important as the Jackie Robinsons. They handled themselves in a difficult time with great dignity and already would be the first to tell you that what Jackie did made it easier for him and for others. But what I wanted to do in this book was not only to tell how Artie Wilson broke the color barrier, but also includes some stories about, for example, Dave Hoskins and the Texas -ly or Reverend Bill Greeson who was the first black. To play for Oklahoma City. So and also the first black pitcher for the Saint Louis cardinals. I wanted to include their stories because they're wonderful stories, and I did not want them to be lost. We're speaking with Gaylon white about his new book about Artie Wilson who was a terrific player by the way, you know a guy who hit four, oh two for the Birmingham, black barons. He's the last man to hit four hundred at the top level of professional baseball. That was in the negro leagues in one thousand nine hundred forty eight. Ultimately, why didn't already Wilson get a real shot to play in the major leagues he played briefly for the giants. Yes. Is it was a thirteenth black to play in the majors. He got his opportunity in nineteen fifty one with the giants Lille Derosier loved him. Wanted to use them in a utility role. The giants had Alvin dark shortstop, and all star shortstop and eighty stinky was second base. Now already could play any into position, but he was an all star shortstop and a negro leagues, and and he was best in the middle infield. So the giants, they started him in only one game. He was once the plate, a total of twenty. Two times I was sitting on the bench mostly already played with Willie Mays at Birmingham in nineteen forty eight. That was Willie's first year in pro ball already knew how good Willie was. And he also knew that Willie was tearing them up at Minneapolis and the American sociation. You also knew the giants needed a center fielder, but already knew more about Willie Mays and the giants themselves. So already went to Leo and said, send me down, bring Willie up. I wanna play every day and not only that I make more money in the minors. So Leo I did not want to. In fact, it Leah was having a disagreement with the owner of the giants horse stone them sewing them onto the Saint already down. Leo wanted to. Keeping. But there was an unwritten quota at that time. It basically was thought to be three. The giants had four blacks bringing Willie up and keeping already would have given them five. So already asked to go down and ineffective. He traded places Willie Mays prior to fifty one. However, he was kind of the pawn in a scuffle between the Cleveland Indians in the New York Yankees. The Indians were at that time owned by Bill Vecchi hated the Yankees flu specifically to Puerto Rico or already was playing winter ball to sign him for the forty nine season. Vac was looking for somebody to back up Lou Boudreau who was the all star shortstop for the Indians at that time. And the Yankees, of course, wanted to keep the Indians from getting already Wilson. So they essentially went to war over already Wilson, and it was a prolonged battle. I was called, in fact battle for Wilson and eventually the Commissioner of. Baseball ruled in favor of the eighties, which is how already while nab going from San Diego and the coast to Oakland because he was at San Diego to start to forty nine season. And then the when the Commissioner ruled that already belong to the ANC. He's the Padres had unload him and he wound up in Oakland playing for Charlie dressing future, Brooklyn Dodgers manager, right? And and to kinda continue on address. And of course loved already dressing manage team there in forty nine and nineteen fifty and dress was really responsible for the giants trading for him and fifty. One addressing did not know the time that he would be managing the dodgers and fifty one, but turned out. He took the dodgers job and he is now managing against Lille Derosier and the giants and Artie Wilson. So the first time, the giants and the dodgers play each other and fifty. One already comes to bat. As a pinch, hitter and dress and polls. What was known as the Artie Wilson shift now shifts are not uncommon these days. But at that time, the only other shift was the Ted Williams shift in the coast league. There was the Artie Wilson shift really developed by left. He'll dual the great manager of the seals. Three ninety eight. Yes. Yeah, great hitter the man in the green suit. But left the left the us. The shift frequently on already in basically the shift, put everybody over in the left side, even took the rightfielder over in, put him in centerfield or put him over at second base. Oftentimes leavings the right field entirely open so dress and pull this in a game against the the dodgers first game of the fifty one season that they played against each other. And it started this battle between Lille and and and dressing. They, of course they both had huge eagles. And this this really kind of defined arby's big career was shift. He grounded back to Don Newcombe the pitcher. So the New York media got a hold of this and thought, well, you know, this guy, he can't pull the ball and of course he wasn't a poet or he didn't try to pull the ball, but it pretty much define his major league career was as one groundout to nuke them against the shift. And the media, of course, made a big deal out of this. Battle between dress and and Derosier, but those two events where he was kinda caught in the middle, I, in the case between the Indians and the Yankees that prevented him from getting to the major sooner. And then when he got there, he was caught in the middle between these two managers with these huge eagles. We're sticking with Gaylon white about his new book, singles and smiles how Artie Wilson broke baseball's color barrier. And of course, you know, one of the larger stories here is there were many generations of black players who were born too early to play in the major leagues, but there was a generation that was born around the same time as Jackie Robinson. That was just a little bit too old. And so by the time they get to the majors guys like Artie Wilson guys, like Ray Dandridge who'd been tremendous players hall of fame caliber talents. There's kind of a particular sadness about the fact that they just miss out. Just a little bit older than you know, the mazes and the errands I in that generation guys were born in the early nineteen thirties, and so they they get a taste of major league baseball, but there's not enough time to really capitalize on it, but played a crucial role in the integration of baseball in the twentieth century. How did you know how did already Wilson? Except you know, the fact that he was born just a little bit too early. Well, here's a quote from him on that, like everything. There's a time parole things. It just wasn't the time for it. That's the way he was already. There was no resentment at all. In fact, the I ask him, it was anything that he regretted, you know what it was had nothing to do with him. His regret was Josh Gibson, didn't get a chance to hit employees in the majors. His regret had to do with another ballplayer not. With already Wilson. One of the great hitters of all time. You know, along with the Ostra Charleston's the buck Leonard's the greatest stars of the negro leagues were even born a little bit before that who never really had a shot. Buckle Neal was a players. Well, who expressed no resentment about the fact that he didn't get a chance to play major league baseball because he said he had a great life getting to do what he got to do in the negro leagues. Is that also basically the way already Wilson accepted what would happen to him when I watched the documentary series that really made buckle Neil star and he was perfect for for that role. I, I often, of course, I knew already very well by that time, and I thought you know that that could easily been already already would have been just as our tickets spokesman just as gentle and without one bit of resentment already, again, had this quote on that if I had it to do over again. I do the same thing over and over again all the writing on the buses. We did all the hassle we had. I still enjoyed it made a good living at it. I would do it again. Yes. He was just like buckle Neil in that regard. And in many respects, he was like, Jackie, Jackie, you know, had this fighting spirit. Jackie was scrappy, or I say, scrap, Artie Artie was I mean he he get dirty and he would already would take advantage over and he could in order to make a play to. They just approached the thing differently. Artie, probably by comparison with Jackie are already was positive with nobody thought is some people thought Jackie had a chip on his shoulder, whether he did or not, let others decide that. But I often heard in my interviews that you know, Jackie had a little bit of a chip on his shoulder and perhaps he needed to, but Artie Artie, nobody would say that about him. He he just played the game because he loved it. And he he, his job, he saw his performance would win you over and it did. And so he'd hit these singles. He was primarily a singles hitter. He only hit thirteen home runs in his entire career, including the negro leagues, and he'd hit a single and he would smile and he'd just when people over that way. Gaylon white is the author of the new book about one of the great players of the immediate postwar period, singles and smiles how Artie Wilson broke baseball's color barrier just published and it's been a pleasure Mr White.
