"A hit some controversy this Yeah, He got a little bit of trouble. About four months ago, He was on the air announcing a Redd's Royals game, and he used a gay slur while he thought his mic was off, which we all know Mike's are never off. Doesn't make it right. But he's actually been rehired to announce games again. Good, and it's just four months later. It's just, you know, As soon as the incident happened on air, he said he went right on and apologize. And he said, I don't know if I'm ever gonna put headsets on again. He knew the severity of what happened. And pretty much thought His career was over. But today it has been announced that the Roberto Clemente League has hired him to do play by play for the 2021 season. Oh, yes. Oh, not even Major league baseball. This is down in Puerto Rico. Yes. Oh, I say. Okay, well, studio It was passion, I guess. Yeah. What? Listen, I mean,
"roberto clemente" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Homed in on him right away. So yeah the pittsburgh. Pirates were Lead i think they're. Gm was branch rickey. Who is the guy who had scouted. Jackie robinson got him onto the dodgers now. He worked for the pirates so he ended up getting his hands on roberto clemente and brought him to the pirates. It's so apparently when They found out or when clemente found out that he had been drafted by the pirates. He's down in puerto rico and he said later on that he had. He didn't really know where pittsburgh was. He had been excited to play for new york. Because there's a big puerto rican community in new york and all of a sudden he sent off to pittsburgh doesn't know where it is and doesn't really know anybody so this is kind of as his entree into America but it actually was even rougher than that. Because i he started out I guess i'm pittsburgh's Minor league team or in. That's what it was. It was in spring. Training down in fort myers beach florida And he came face to face with the the stark reality of of basically jim. Crow south in the fifties First thing when he got to america and he he was one of the reasons. I said earlier the civil rights activists because he did not take very kindly to that and bristled in in railed against it from the outset. Yeah he didn't he didn't have any He doesn't have any frame of reference for this like he came from puerto. Rico were this wasn't a thing. He was of african descent so to americans he was a black man to him. He was puerto rican. He was caught between two worlds and didn't understand why he had to stay in a different hotel or eating a different restaurant than his white Teammates and so this really upset them and and what upset him even as much was how his other black teammates on the team understood it in just basically had to take it because they were afraid. If they caused a ruckus that it would be sent back down to the minors and he was just like you shouldn't be deferential. Like what's going on in this country. And he he would speak to the sporting press about this stuff in the sporting press either would just ignore his comments about that or actually yes they would ignore his comments about that and they would just talk about whatever he said about the game but then to kind of heap This sense that he was an outsider and outside outsider. There wasn't respected because he was looked down upon because of his race and his his Origin They would quote him phonetically in the press so when he said you know I think there was a headline. That famously said like i get a hit. I feel good but they spell it out like i get heat h. e. t. is how they spelled hit. I feel good. That was a headline in the pittsburgh news papers after a really big game and he found that extremely demeaning And actually really kind of framed. The way that he felt about america Yeah framed how he felt about america. And why don't forget like puerto. Rico was you know by this time it was an american territory have been for quite a while. So people in puerto rico had long considered themselves american people in america. Increasing sitter puerto ricans. They consider them and they. The roberto clemente was treated just like any other person from puerto rico which was not very well back. Then yes so. His reputation started to develop as a loner. It's very moody player The pirates were really bad team. I don't think we mentioned that At the time just terrible like one of the worst teams baseball. He didn't catch on in his first few years. They're either Think in his first five seasons the only hit over three hundred one time and a lot of this was due to injury. He had a car accident that hurt his back. So his back was all jacked up for a while He had other you know injuries along the way and he would. He wasn't shy about talking about it. He would complain to the manager complain to the press about his injuries. And this baseball still kind of this way or most sports are actually as you kinda. Don't take that stuff public. You don't wanna be seen as someone who Either fakes injury because they don't wanna play or who complains about it too much right so he. He didn't have the best reputation early on because a lot of this stuff. Yeah i know he was thought to be complainer. A hypochondriac moody Abrasive egotistical. And that was something. that like. That's indisputable as egotistical part. Because he was. He knew that he was playing better than he was getting credit for it and it ticked him off because he knew the reason he wasn't getting credit for was because he didn't act the way that the white sporting press expected him to act and they didn't like him for so they didn't really give them any any credit. They actually withheld credit. That was definitely do him for the way he was playing. But like you said. I mean it took a few years for him to start to catch on but even after he did which i began in the nineteen. Sixty world series When the pirates went from. I don't know if they went from worst to first but it was pretty close to something like that He was he was passed over as the world's series mvp I think like a a lefty relief. Pitcher got more votes than he did despite him being one of the clear. Heroes of that series And he really was not happy about that and it really kind of created this. This lifelong animosity with the sporting precedent. Already been brewing. But that one to him showed that he they were basically working against them at that point. Yeah and i think nineteen sixty was a pretty bittersweet ear because it was his breakout year If this status right. Dave says his average never dropped below three hundred. Yeah then that means he that means he was hitting three hundred in game one which is pretty remarkable To start out that hot and to maintain it over the course of a year right but if in playing winter ball in the caribbean just a couple of weeks before that it would make sense you know. Yeah and he You know they won the world series. Which is a big big deal in pittsburgh. But he didn't feel like he was getting his do like you said so. He didn't go off and celebrate with his fans He kind of went off to himself he was happy but it said The quote was. I'm happy but not but unconcerned with all the fanfare is what reporter said and he just wanted to get back home to puerto rico so he could use his world series bonus money to buy a house for his mother and he was loved there. So you know he wanted to get back to where he was Cherished in any did when he went back to puerto rico he was a national hero and the press like followed him everywhere he went and the kids loved him and he bought a big cadillac and mentor all the kids. So it's not like he went back like Like elvis in just sort of live high on the hog like he did go back a hero but he really really got involved with the community right away. Yeah he kept playing he would mentor little kids. Who were Learning to play sports in that actually became one of his dreams as he wanted to Make enough money and get big enough to build a sports complex a sports city or See dod deportes bad If i can pat myself on the back for that one where kids could learn to Play but also you know like you didn't have much of a role model kind of place you could find a role model to and not just play baseball but also play basketball or whatever sports You wanted to play. And i think that that was at the very least on his mind back. Then if not like one of his stated goals in his life by the time nineteen.

"It's been a disappointment as far. I mean Matt Carpenter Tyler Neil Dylan Carlson Lane Thomas. They're all hidden under two hundred They haven't put it together at all. So is the offense good enough to meet up with this rotation and ultimately get this team to the playoffs. They do have a five game set coming up with Milwaukee in September a couple of. doubleheaders a single game. Those are makeup games and Certainly go a long way enter division only into who will make the postseason but I know it's going to be tough with all the doubleheaders that's going on but the cardinals don't play another series against the team. That's above five hundred after the twins games this week coming up here they got the Tigers, red spruce pirates, royals, brewers. So the schedule certainly favors the Saint Louis Cardinals and that's where the conversation and becomes the four five matchup because of. The San. Diego padres are pretty much entrenched in that fourth slot. So it comes down to the second in the NFL second in the NFL central who has that better record and who will match up with the padres in the first round as opposed to being that. You know that six seed going against that third division winner that's potentially the cubs or the brave sell pick your poison there whether it's the padres, cubs or braves but it certainly a matchup game that will be interesting to see as we continue to move down the stretch. After the cardinals here next up on the list of potential playoff percentages, the San Francisco giants fascinating there at sixty seven, point, three percent obviously Mike you stransky has been one of the best players he's pushed Fernando devotees junior and mookie betts when it comes to war and as well as MVP conversation. Let's see here Brandon Bell has three thirty seven for them. Donovan Solano was it three, fifty three. So those three guys at the top of the lineup have been over achieving in really carrying this team because the bullpen has not been great I mean closer trevor got and fellow reliever Tyler Rogers combined two and five with a seven, four four t are A. Couple of starters have struggled forum. Johnny Cueto Kevin, Guzman Trevor, K. Hill. They gotta continue to push and get things rolling their big series down the stretch comes in the middle of September here over the next couple of days against the San Diego padres they also finished with three games against the Padre. So six against the padres over the next couple of days and the next couple of weeks could go a long way in determining their standing because it does look like la one San Diego to. So the best would be ls third slot and you're looking at that wildcard seed of number seven or number eight and a match up against the top team in the national. League following the giants here we have the Miami Marlins they currently own a forty five percent chance to make the postseason. They are nineteen in eighteen as if time of recording the Atlanta braves are hammering the Marlins, they've scored twenty five runs right now at the point here were rat and today's show so they'll be nineteen in nineteen, but at five hundred, they're right in the conversation for that eight spot in the playoffs and would be the eighth playoff team if the playoffs started today and they're led by their starting pitching three nine four Uehara rookie starter Sixto Sanchez as well as Trevor Rogers have been super impressive they've combined for a two to five era through seven starts. Will they be able to keep it going I think. So six does one of the most impressive prospects that has come up major league baseball in a long long time. I mean, he was an Phillies farm system guy traded him for jt real Mutoko I was a huge Sixto Sanchez. I went to go watch him pitch and Lakewood in high a ball I was looking forward to go watch and impeach and AA reading Pennsylvania and then they ship him out ultimately to get jt the best catchers or the best catcher in baseball right now so I don't regret the move for them, but it is certainly frustrating watching pitching Ninja and watching highlights. Of six though Sanchez just making major league hitters look foolish at such a young age and throw one hundred miles an hour. But he's GONNA be tough to deal with over the next decade for anybody in Major, League baseball and he's certainly impressive from the right side. Offensively, the marlins aren't very good. They don't hit much their twenty third in runs per game. Let's see. Corey. dickerson is six home runs but he's hitting just three thirty two they did add starling Martin aged who should help the offense and should help the outfield positions. Of course they're big series is that saved one with the Philadelphia Phillies we spoke about and they're they're fun to watch I mean I've had a great time watching Miami play watching Sixto Sanchez throw watching a lot of these guys you know try to make a move here it's been fun to watch. So after my Miami, next up is Milwaukee they currently let's see. Here have a forty three percent chance to make the post season they find themselves at nineteen and twenty two. Their bullpen is their strengthened as the thirteenth best era in the majors, but the sixth win probability added. So they've been great when Games are close and have given up runs when things have been much more apart. But their offense is just I mean, it's not good. They're hitting two twenty, one none of their eight appear none of their eight regulars hitting over to fifty as of Tuesday. So you would just think. I mean. Christian. Yelich. She sit in two thirteen. Yeah. He's got nine home runs but the guys in MVP last year the year before, and now he's sitting in two thirteen. So it's been a struggle for them down the stretch so that five game series with St Louis Looms Large of course but certainly there on the outside looking in in Milwaukee next step we got the New York mets they currently have a thirty percent chance to make the postseason they are. Let's see twenty and twenty four Jacob degrom obviously remains the best pitcher in baseball he's got a One six nine era but they've only won three of his eight starts this year. They haven't been able to parlay that effectiveness on the mound into the win column and that's frustrating for mets fans because that's really the only game. You can put you know count on a w in the five days because outside of the ground, the rest of the rotation is six and twelve with a six, six, four era. So you've got the best pitcher in baseball and then nobody else helping them out, and that's where it starts and stops with the mets. Starting rotation of course, they got series with phillies coming up series with the MARLINS coming up but they've struggled against both of those teams year to date, and unless they turn things around and unless that starting pitching starts to be more effective, they're looking at finishing under five hundred and being home come playoff time, and now the last two teams are three teams here. That are absolutely huge long shots but we'll talk about and briefly the Colorado Rockies at twenty and twenty two they only have twenty five percent chance of making the playoffs just due to the scheduled down the stretch. Of course, they're going to be facing off against the dodgers but also the giants they're going to need. To beat up on those other teams in the division, the giants in the diamondbacks specifically through the stretch here. So the rockies are nine and nineteen cents, an eleven and three start we knew they started hot, but ultimately were unable to continue that moving forward and they're heading away from chorus field is a corporate because they're hitting just two twenty, three on the road. So it's it's worse than normal. They had to thirty away from chorus field last year this year it's all the way down to two twenty three, which is going to put their odds at just about twenty five percent. Next step we got the Cincinnati Reds my breakout team in the national, League didn't get the memo this summer. There are at a twenty percents to make the postseason at eighteen and twenty four, of course, Trevor Bauer at the top of the rotation some of the other guys up there sunny gray have been effective Jesse winkler in the ball offensively but just the rest of the offense they they can't get it going I mean the reds are twenty ninth and runs per game they are their second and walk rate but..

"Thanks for listening everybody here in the third segment, we're GONNA talk about both wildcard racists we're going to dive into a little bit more detail I know for Monday's episode, we'd talk across all the standings discussed the division leaders where the Playoffs are at, but I wanted to dive in a bit more as we're under the three week mark here until the playoffs start into these wildcard races and the reason i. said that at the end of segment number two, there was because the American League wild-card and the American League playoff teams I. Still Think are very much set in stone and the reason I say that because even though the. Yankees have been in an absolute free fall and haven't been able to figure things out. Now for a couple of weeks here they did win tonight on Wednesday nights I'm recording this late here Wednesday. So they are twenty two and twenty one currently in the eight spot in the American League for the playoffs. However, the only team said they're basically fighting against for this position there's three of 'em. Really and none of them should are any good. I mean none of them were anywhere close to playoff conversation had the beginning of the year and that's the Baltimore Orioles at twenty and twenty to the Detroit Tigers and nineteen, twenty two and the Seattle Mariners and nineteen and twenty three, and basically we're looking at the Yankees compared to the Orioles Tigers and mariners in regards to a potential playoff spot. There shouldn't even be much of a conversation here and the numbers on ESPN as I'm looking here on the standings as the playoff prediction percentage is over on the right hand side, they have the Yankees still in an eighty nine point three percent chance to make the post season. So we know who the teams are going to be we we said that for two weeks now you got the raise. Jason, Yankees, coming out of the American League east the White Sox, in the twins out of the central and you're two teams out of the West or the athletics in the Astros now, there is going to be some jockeying for position even through the four through six slots, the Blue Jays continue to play good baseball but that Indians twins white sox race is going to be key down the stretch because. The team who wins the central could be the to the next one could be the four, and then the last one could be the six. So it doesn't look like they're going to line up to play against each other, but they could basically be taken on everybody else in the American league and we could see that central division really established themselves. So as much as New York continues to struggle here as much as everybody's talking about boone trying to figure things out void. Sad some struggles recently, they were winning the other day six. Two and lost the game they had lost one, two, three, four, five, six straight before their win against the Blue Jays tonight in eight out of nine, and they're still a ninety percent chance to make the postseason. So if you're a Yankees, Fan just exhale knowing that you gotta get through the next two to three weeks. You're still looking at a matchup based conversation when it comes to that first round best of three, you gotta get your pitching, right but Garrett Cole going twice in a five game series even if you do end up. The eighth seed ultimately play in those Tampa Bay rays is the one seed you gotta feel good about coal possibly went into two games and only having to steal one out of the other three with the rest of your rotation. So what I wanted to do much more in this segment is discussed the National League because there are a ton of teams in the conversation around the National League playoff spot, and specifically the wildcard. Some of these teams we discuss could be the second seed could be out of the play offs win their. Division still I mean the National League. West is really the only division that's out of reach right now, and that's what the A. Dodgers at thirty one in twelve everybody knows them being one of the top teams in baseball but let's kind of start from the top down I. Mean Let's touch on those. Philadelphia. Phillies right off the top based on their current playoff odds here of eighty nine point five percent They are fourth in the majors in runs per game only behind the dodgers padres in Braves Harper, Rio Mutel, hoskins continue to. Push the offense Zack Wheeler has obviously been an overachiever for them this year four, no, two, four, seven era, his strike outs are down, but his double play balls are up. So it really hasn't been status quo for the rest of his career certainly has been effective. The main weakness however for the phillies is that bullpen they still lead the majors or I guess our last in the majors however you WanNa look. At, it with a seven point, zero, two era even though they made a ton of trades at the deadline, they added Brandon Workman who's been salad is closer but a lot of the other guys they added haven't been successful. So it's going to be a tough stretch for them here in September with seven games in five days coming up against the marlins mentioned that briefly earlier in the episode, but that's going to. Go a long way to determining both the marlins and the phillies outcome in regards to whether or not they make the postseason but the phillies there odds are pretty good right now at twenty one and eighteen based on where the National League as and based on where the NFL East is to get into the playoffs next up in the highest odds here as potentially making it that could still fall out is the. Saint Louis Cardinals. They're currently at an eighty percent chance to make the playoffs at eighteen and seventeen there led by their rotation, which has the fifth best era in all of baseball. It's a Lo- it's allowing the lowest batting average as well as the third Lowest Whoa Book in Major League Baseball they've had Brad Miller overachieved for them offensively he's taken over the D. H. duties the philly hidden to eighty two with. Seventeen walks and twenty two strike outs. So He's been very effective offensively for them but their weakness overall is that offense outside Brad. Miller Paul Goldschmidt..

"Network I'm your host Kevin Hollick is episode number two, Sixty, eight you guys haven't done so yet check us out on social media had to facebook head to twitter check out the GS MCC baseball podcast as well as the. PODCAST network linked in. Instagram facebook across the board baseball is not the only guest within the network. Actually there's upwards of thirty even more than that. It's anything you would like I mean if you can come up with a topic, there's a podcast for you whether it's books, music television movies, other sports. Music did I say that already I don't even remember there's so many broadcasts that if he can't find one that's entertaining. There's something wrong with you. That's all I'm going to say but check that out go into the search bar wherever you're listening to this podcast type in G S MC and the library will pop up and you'll have a lot of great content a lot of my co workers within the podcast network. So we certainly appreciate it but dive in now to counter the news and notes segment of the baseball podcast here today a couple of different things I wanted to touch on first of all is the news that Major League. Baseball has released the quote unquote film room, which is millions of old video clips every pitch for Major League baseball over the last three years as well as highlights dating back all the way to nineteen, twenty nine and you as the consumer are able to put together a package of up to I believe it is four different highlights and you can share those across any social media platform. So baseball is starting to finally hear the feedback in starting to understand the power of social media and the ability that this has to. Grow. The audience and sway members to become bigger fans because before they used to crack down on this all the time. If you had any sort of video online, they would shut it down. They would come at you even pitching Ninja on twitter had to go to battle, and he's basically just like guys. I'm trying to champion your product in show how difficult it is and how good these guys are at what they do and you're shutting down for it. I'm trying to partner with you while asking nothing in. Return. But spread the word of your product, and now I do think that this film room is a little bit internally focused. Still I understand the benefit of being able to put together these highlights you can't manipulate the system as much as I would like I. Know I still have to continue to dive around and learn more about it as I'm diving through highlights content learning, how to clip things back and forth short and the clips edit the clips be able to rotate damn. Do certain things edit the videos filters? Tax Things along those different lines that are what make other social media platforms stand out amongst the crowd of many. So if Major League Baseball can partner with some of these platforms I think this will continue benefited as well, but it is certainly a great step in the right direction I I mean I've come on here a couple of times and talked about how baseball needs to partner with online media and be more willing to understand that world and utilize it to be successful, and this is a good first step I think this is kind of. A lowering of the curtain. So to speak that will allow this to evolve. Because I do think baseball will find success and I do think the reaction will be positive. I. Don't know how many people will be sharing all of these highlights or be watching old videos, but I'll certainly find it entertaining or if you're having a conversation with your friends or your family over a couple of drinks you're outside it's now fall time over the weekend and you want to watch an old highlight of Willie mays or Roberto Clemente who we talked about in that. First Segment Jackie. Robinson some of these guys who pave the way for today's baseball players, and now you can do that. Now you don't have to rely on Youtube and a lot of older video I mean like i. said going all the way back to nineteen twenty nine. That's a long time ago. That's ninety years of highlights that are now available in this film room, and if you really want to take some time and go down a rabbit hole, which I would suggest because it is fun and they do have a lot of video that I've. Never. Seen before, and if you wanna put together videos of triple plays or videos of the final out of the world series or videos of complete game, no hitters the final pitch the final out of those types of instances guys who have hit four home runs in a game and kind of put those altogether in a clip and then share them online. You can do that. But the length of video does become a bit longer for some of the newer niche social media platforms that are come and go come and go a lot of high turnover. Sex Videos, things along those lines, but again, good first step for Major. League baseball certainly an improvement on what they've been doing. I can't fault them for that. Allowing any sort of video moving forward is certainly an upgrade over what things have been in the past but check that out MLB film room just type into Google you gotta sign up with an email. Of course, they wanna, you know email you to try to get you to buy something later. But as of now the film room is free and you should check it out if you're listening out there but. This week we also had let's see here I'm trying to remember which exact day it was. Was it today's Thursday Tuesday I? Think it was on the eighth. If we had the third longest at-bat in the history of Major League Baseball, it was between cardinals, Catcher Matt leaders and many twins left handed pitcher caleb fee bar Thi- bar I. think that's how you say it. So nineteen pitch battle I, it was pretty impressive to watch Wieder said fouled off fourteen. Pitches during the nineteen pitch performance before feel bar got him to fly out to the center field warning track and the bases were loaded at this point. So Theo Bar was able to get out of the jam and the cardinals were up five to two in that ain't pitches ten through fifteen. We're all fastballs that leaders was able to foul off into. Empty. Busch Stadium Number Sixteen was a high slider and then seventeen eighteen nineteen back to fastballs after that. But. Thalberg through ten consecutive three, two pitches into the strike zone. That's very impressive. I mean those are high leverage high pressure pitches because you certainly don't WanNa walk in a run in this instance in the bottom of third already down five to two. In this game, you don't want to give up any more. So that's a fascinating stat. They're being able to locate whether it's control or command ten pitches in zone in a row is a very impressive feat and looking at a tweet here from Sarah. Lang's she says, matter leader saw. Pitches. In his last plate appearance, there have been five thousand, four hundred instances this season of a player having at least four plate appearances a in a game and seeing fewer pitches than that. So a player total during the game seeing less than nineteen bitches. This happened over five hundred or five, thousand, four, hundred times and leaders did it in one play to parents? So.

"Statistic right in front of me, and of course, a lot of the statistics that we reference nowadays in Major. League. Baseball weren't as available or weren't used back during that time. So they tried to take today's analytics and apply them to looking at film or game play or don't even know exactly how they do it but his defensive metrics graded out extremely well, his base running metrics getting back to the triples him taking the extra base when the opportunity presented itself, I believe it was over. Fifty or sixty percent of the time. So the guy wasn't a speedster, but he knew how to run the basis and that led to him taking the extra base in stretching. Hey, double into a triple and one, hundred, sixty, six of those is very impressive and when I talked about defensive metrics as well he won twelve consecutive gold glove awards starting in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty. One. So from nineteen, sixty, one, all the way till his last year of Nineteen seventy-two, he was the gold glove winner in right field for the National League he led the National League in outfield assists five times during the curse of a career. So the guy had an absolute Canaan out in right field and since one thousand, nine, hundred, four, he ranked second in career assists as. A right fielder, he has a career two hundred and fifty five assists from right field, which is second all-time. So this guy just he did it all I mean he hit three seventeen, he hit triples let's look at his home run stats he he figured out how to hit home runs later in his career a lot of way or an easy way to put it is that Guys who get to the major leagues I you learn how to hit major league pitching and then you learn how to hit home runs against Major League pitching I mean case in point locally here is Alec bomb for the Philadelphia. Phillies. Former third overall pick who has come up hit right around three hundred put the ball in play. He's twelve for twenty-three with runners in scoring. Position but certainly hasn't lifted the ball out of the ballpark yet, and that will come with experience that will come with timing that will come with repetition, and that's what happened with Roberto Clemente and his first five years he had five, seven, four, six, four home runs but then from then on double digits every year and averaged upwards of almost twenty home runs he started getting to. Sixteen twenty three seventeen twenty nine was his career high in nineteen sixty six when he won the MVP award, he hit three seventeen, that year twenty, nine home runs. One hundred nineteen are be is he also had eleven triples and thirty one doubles. So what's that there? Quickly Sixty seventy one extra base hits across the board in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, six, what a fantastic year. For Roberto in that year, he was a two time world series champion. To Go along with those twelve consecutive gold gloves, he also had fifteen all stars. He was named an all-star fifteen different times. That's very impressive throughout the course of eighteen years. He had four L. batting titles to go along with the nineteen sixty, six award he had three, fifty, one and nineteen, sixty, one, three, thirty, nine, and nineteen, sixty, four, three, fifty, seven, in one, thousand, nine. Hundred Sixty seven and three, twenty, nine in nineteen, sixty five to win the batting championship in those years very impressive. He also ranks once again putting in the new age sabermetrics into the old style of baseball. He ranked thirty seventh all time in wins above replacement or war according to baseball reference. So very, very high on the list during his prime one of the most complete players. I, heard Larry Bowa speak the other day and somebody asked him about the best baseball player. He's ever played against and he said it was hands down. So Clemente nobody was even close it's just I mean this guy if you really look at it from nineteen, we'll say sixty one or even nineteen sixty through the end of his career. So those twelve years he was an all star every year except for nineteen, sixty eight and the guy had two to ninety one that year. So certainly had the numbers he finished in the MVP top twenty every single year he had. Let's see one two. Three four top five finishes in MVP voting, and it's just let's look at some of the individual performances that really stand out here based on some research I've been able to do but nineteen, fifty six, he had an inside the park walk off Grand Slam, and apparently that is the only time in the history of Major League baseball it actually happened it was Let's see a historic trip nine, eight victory the pirates over the cubs and It was his first home run was also an inside the park home run. So he has the only inside the park walk off Grand Slam in the history of baseball up. A year later in nineteen fifty seven, he had a three homer, seven RBI performance, which was probably the most impressive offensive performance of Roberto Clementes career for five three Dinger's seven RBI's against the reds he had to to run shots, and then a solo homer in the ninth, the pirates did end up losing that game but of course, Roberto was a star nineteen, fifty, eight, he had. A three times three bagger Clemente became just the twenty eighth player in history to have three triples in one game which ties the modern era. So nobody has had four triples in one game. It seems here but Clemente is one of the gentlemen was able to have three of them in one game. He had a walk off hit in the All Star game in nineteen sixty one. To lead the National League to a five four victory, he basically, let's see Hank Aaron led off the inning Frank Robinson was there. So I stacked lineup but ultimately, your hero was were Roberto Clemente in the same year that he won the MVP, he also had the walk off winner in the All Star game. That's a pretty good summer if you're Roberto Clemente. Defensively in nineteen sixty nine, he made a crazy catch to preserve a no hitter one handed grab over the field fence. It's one of the best highlights and best catches that she'll see if you search over youtube and and kind of dive into some of these, you'll be able to find that one thousand, nine, hundred, Seventy Roberto Clemente night at three rivers stadium. They had this. They welcomed fans from Puerto Rico for the occasion. Obviously. Roberto. Was a hero for a lot of kids of Latino descent. Because Roberto Clemente after his passing in nineteen, seventy two was elected to the baseball hall of fame in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three, and he was the first Latino to be enshrined in the Major League Baseball Hall of fame. So everything that Jackie Robinson did in for for the African, American. Community Roberto Clemente was very similar idolized player for the Latino community. I know Alex Rodriguez has talked about idolizing Roberto Clemente and that's where I think baseball's doing a nice job and honoring him once a similar similar to Jackie Robinson because the has continued to evolve and obviously the influence of La Latino players in Puerto Rico and everybody has continued to grow across major. League Baseball and we've seen that with everybody from Puerto. Rico wearing number twenty one in honor of Roberto Clemente on Wednesday with the rest of Major League baseball wearing a patch and showing their love for Roberto Clemente also Major League baseball the MLB Network has a studio twenty one along with a studio forty two. So very much highly thought of in regards to Major, League baseball and just fascinating I. Mean The guy was an all star gold glove top fifteen MVP guy hit three twelve with seven home runs and sixty RBI. So yeah, our ten home runs and sixty RBI. So maybe the offensive power numbers were dropping at the age of thirty seven for the pirates. The Guy could still hit career three seventeen hitter thirteen hundred RBI is two hundred and forty home runs and exactly three thousand hits and of Cour- say a hero to the Latino community and just a model citizen for everything. Major League, baseball and. Great Great Athlete and a great great baseball player. But that'll wrap things up here for the first segment of the GSM baseball podcast brought to you by the.

They said No. So, bobby called me up that next day, and he said Larry. We gotta tell the story of the tower because it's an incredible story, who sells or Roberto Clemente Baseball Bat Tobia Torah. Nobody matter of fact, some people would say that they would sell the tower by Roberto Clemente Baseball Bat. So. We had a rededication and we invited Roberto Clemente Junior. To the camp and we rededicated the tower Roberto Clemente was there, he was able to speak on behalf of his family. It was again. It was a meaningful moment, not obviously for me. Okay, but more importantly for the kids that were there because they got to learn a little bit about Roberta's Dad, which most of them no crew. was. That's such a great story. You have lots of really inspirational sayings and life lessons that you learned and shared over the years liaisons I love this one. Take the high road. Tell me a little bit about the inspiration behind that saying I think everything always comes back to where I. started my career at the Pittsburgh JC and coaching and the opportunities to teach, it's easy to teach somebody to dribble a ball or to to make a basket, but it's the life lessons and we. We dealt with a lot of diversity along the way there was a number of occasions you know when we would go and different churches or if. If an facility, a lot of anti-semitism and I would be in that time out. I taught my guys and said listen on the high road. Do the right thing. Okay? We win like a champion. We lose like a champion. Those are just words, but I always believe that actions. Okay, we're stronger than words and it just as an example, so we'd be in a jammed, and we played in the Cyo Youth League Catholic Youth Organization. We were the only Jewish community center team.

"Can you only had one of them? The station. Now, they'll look the love and tried to hang onto. The you know, what's weird though, you know, you loaned us your gold glove, and it was great to have in. What people have to understand is. It's actually just a baseball mitt then is spray painted gold. Like, Like, it's. it's. I mean, it's cool. But it's it's kind of a cheap, you know award. I mean, it's a great honor herald don't get me wrong. I think the actual trophy. They they they give you is just a glove, and then they get, you know, Russ stolen them, and then they spray pin. Well last night. Ward was was awarded Johnny Atlanta, right down. So let's see the Roberto Clemente where it looks like the Heisman Trophy. Well, I want it back in ninety one that gave me a ball. That was basically they silver bronze too. Come on get a high, isn't it? The Red Sox with two two outs in the you know, this ability they're hitting over four hundred with two ounce. And I I guess I I look at what Cora has done for this team. And what I love and that is put the bat on the ball. Don't try to you don't have to hit home runs. They're not relying on home runs here. And they're put the ball in play. And I I don't know if more teams are going to look at this and go. Oh, jeez. That's it does make more sense than striking out that you put the ball in play. And then things happen. What do you make of this strategy? It's not strategy. I guess, but it's just the ability to you know, put the ball in play with with two outs in runners in scoring position. Well, I I take full loss. That, you know, it's it's it's blending the new analytics and also the old school together. And I think we've gone through numbers and data are always constantly changing. Right. It changes are are thought process of of how we think about things so Alex comes from Houston ASO's who way out there with all the Olympics. But I think they're the first ones sit there and say take a pitch given account and lead league in strikeouts. Then they made the adjustment. We're gonna put the ball in play and they went to World Series. And I think analysts about that here. He had a quote last night. And that he said in the press conference to ten and thirty home runs and seventy Rb is you can't play for the Red Sox that doesn't get it with one hundred ninety five strikeouts. You can't play here. So I think what it's been accepted herald it that's the problem is baseball has accepted this as the new normal. Well, I hate it. I hate it. I know most people. Do the ball's gonna be play. And if you put the ball in play good things are gonna happen strike out. Not just another out you have no production. So I think there's team starting to see it when you have the team leading right? You know to in the World Series. I'm not gonna give it to them yet. Although I think you'll probably win it. And last year winter saying strikeouts is not the way you play. You put the ball in play. Maybe we're going to start to see this turn. And we'll see 'cause we gotta get the game back to putting the ball play. It just. HR safe travels to Los Angeles. We'll check in with you a little bit later on in the series. Thank you. Fran. Appreciate Harold Reynolds. He won three Gold Gloves. Yeah. Fritzy, no, offense or anything. But it's kind of a cheap award. It is like what you mentioned looking at the gold glove looked like cheap award. Yes. It's an amazing honored again. But when we all got it. We were like this is what they give them. Really, didn't you think it was actual gold glove again like it was a gold glove? Like when you tap on it, solid. It was a rust Olim high end restaurant. Yes. Because you could get a glove, and I could spray painted, and I could spray spray thing to baseball's. I think that we could probably construct a gold glove. It was a little more. It had the feel of like a more high end sixth grade art project, it was a little bit more art project that like somebody did that out in the garage..
