"Last two years and long story kept on these not the same Henry Aaron but he took our young players prayers like Robin Yount whom you remember and on the way the hall of fame and what he did with them he really matured them taught them not only about baseball part about life I mean he he was great and he urged to later. We started winning ninety six games. He so there's I saw Henry data on Wednesday. I went to round and I wouldn't go to vomit out not seeing him. I'll see him in cooperstown next. We all I can tell you about him. Baseball's lucky great icon and obviously I'm impartial and everybody has an opinion. I think he was the best player of our generation. I said I'm partial. I understand there was some you know talking about Willie mays and who's phenomenal but if you watched hank play every day it was amazing but over and above that he's a human being as you have ever met quiet and thoughtful <hes> you at one point in the book writing about your growing up said that your father <hes> and you relate this the baseball but I thought it was interesting. You said Your father saying that was something along these lines he said son like nothing is good or bad except by comparison yeah. It's a line at every owner in baseball uses today that's right that was his famous line and they use it because of you. No doubt <hes> what what did he mean by that well some one thing and it it's it's true in life and was true in baseball as is David. We were trying to change things that you may say well okay. Okay that's all right but it should be this and that well except if you compare it to everything else is pretty good and you ought to be grateful for that and that's the way you make progress by. Maybe a little bit here and a little bit there but over and above everything else you have to understand that it's progress and if you compare it to everything else it's it's probably more progress than you knew that existed. We'll take a call now from a fan from Omaha Nebraska this Guy John Thank you for calling in. What's your question yeah? <hes> I'm looking at an article published. This year about attendance is down overall for the fourth straight year and I'm wondering are there any studies <hes> as to why this is happening inning and has the M._l._b.. As an organization done anything or proposed anything in the past to help each club promote their own individual attendants.

"The say sort it says, all right. I could say that. Okay. All right. And so then you had young Cal, Ripken, young way, bogs. You had. Youngish Robin yount, and what year my in my youngest, Robin yount youngest Andre Dawson anyway. So there were two that year, but so that's interesting, something's happening here. Obviously, we've talked about how they're young more young players young players are better than ever and so on, but this is another way of looking at it because it's not just the league wide. It's not the bulk of like two hundred young players who are collectively better than young players have collectively been before, but this is actually the stars as well our young. So then I looked at the average age of the top twenty and this is the youngest average age of the top twenty in any year at twenty six point five years. Nineteen seventy-five aforementioned was twenty six point six. That was the closest year and usually, though, it's about what you expect. It's kinda mid twenty sevens and in nineteen forty seven the average was thirty in nineteen fifty the average was thirty. So if you look at the youngest years on this list, twenty nineteen is the youngest twenty seven. Nineteen was the fourth youngest twenty eighteen was the seventh youngest and twenty fifteen was the sixth youngest. So this is confirming a multi year trend that we're all kind of aware of, but puts a different perspective. But this brings up the question that I've been thinking about with the reason I keep looking at this is because when we talk about how young players are better than they've ever been were the thing about any of these things is that you're not actually seeing any of these cohorts in a in a vacuum isolated. You're comparing them to the other cohorts. It's all ratios, right? And so young players are better today than they've ever been relative to old players and old players are somewhat worse today than they've mostly ever been relative to young players. But does that mean that the young players are getting better? Usually, we assume that, that we when we talk about this conversation. We're usually looking for reasons why young players are better. Why they're coming up more. Advanced why? They're more athletic more precocious stronger. More developed have better approaches the plate better trained. I guess, and so I keep wondering, though, if this, if we all if there's also reason to think that old players are worse, if they are disadvantaged in this modern style of play, not just relative to young players. But if they are actually disadvantaged if the old players collectively worse. And so that's kinda why I'm focusing on this, this Michael, Brantley fact, because if there are no old players know older players who are able to break through, and be really good then. I don't know. I don't know what that means. But it sort of maybe suggests that there's, there's two forces at work here, one that's making young players better and one that's potentially making old players worse. So I don't know if you have any thoughts on this any hypotheses, but the styles of play the style of play that is that we see right now. Is more velocity? So maybe you would think that if you're as you get older bat speed would be one of the things that, that would differentiate you from your younger self and you might be a specially prone to higher velocity. I think the fact that the strike zone has moved up in the average pitch has moved up that you're seeing higher pitches. In addition of higher velocity, but actually higher pitches seems like that could be something that older players might find more disadvantages than they did. When they were younger the reliance on data on new sources of data new preparation. I guess, techniques might disadvantage older players who could be either more set in their ways, or to simply, like less native to this technology than younger players who were raised with the a lot more of this stuff as being commonplace for them. So that seems like maybe something the one contradiction to this is that you might think that with strikeouts, higher league-wide that your ability to the share of your value that would come from defense would be smaller, because there's just fewer balls put in play and more the balls that are in player home runs. And so if we know that the aging Koerfer defense is particularly steep in unforgiving..

What a great quiz top. Thanks for doing this. And thanks for adjusting on the fly. They talk about the Trident. We'll keep discover station going guys. Thanks a lot. So before every Sunday night baseball game. I talked to a lot of players and try to get some background collect some thoughts and observations from various players, and I asked Freddie, Freeman about Ronald kunia junior. And I tell you what what he said surprise me how you hitter rise since the beginning of last year. He's taken walks. That's that's the biggest thing. He wants to hit the swing is still wants to do that. I think it's gets a little upset when he walks but won t learn take his walks in the second half. He became a whole different player. Opening. They took two walks. Got a pitch the hit me. That's gonna make them in the mitroff level in my opinion. You said I remember talking to you once about that. I want to say like four years ago. I was like what turnaround you see stops pitch zone. That's the whole key telling them that. A little bit. They're not gonna give in. They're not gonna give them this in the big leagues. They're going to him being twenty one years old. They're going to see if he's going to chase. See if he gets frustrated, I still get frustrated. Believe me I do. I wanna hit two. But when you find yourself sort of swinging when you've got a real back in and if he's taking walks really on like he did day. It's leaking to see Ronald kunia income players. When did you start to see that change? After after he came back from his injury. Here's a little different player. Especially in the second half the season. Once he started taking walks really didn't know what to do anymore because they were getting he's getting into. Here's counts every single a bad. It seemed like and he started making him pay. And that's great do. Do. Day that I that forty five thousand he doesn't take the fat off his shoulders draws that wall had fallen behind to is that just kind of a sign that his. I'm sure it's I don't know what is ceiling is. You know, it's every single day does something as well. As you. To be twenty one years old, and I day to go out there and your first they'd be promise you I've been swing. I say. So. Even in spring training. He was taking you thinking a lot more pitchers in spring training. I don't know if he's trying to set hitters set up for the season. But a lot more than I was accustomed to seeing. And if he starts.

"But it's probably team proud of what we accomplished this year and it sucked at the time, obviously. But we can improve on that. Well, congrats as a wonderful season you flirted with the triple crown two homers shy of leading in that and one RBI shy as well. So great great performance this year and nearly making it to the World Series as well. Great story Christian. Hopefully, your parents are safe. And we appreciate your joining us. Thank you. I appreciate it. That's Christian yelich, the brewers outfielder first brewer to win a batting championship. And for some reason, I thought Paul Molitor or Robin yount would have won a batting title. I don't know what kind. Well, Hank Aaron was a Milwaukee. Brave. I don't know if he ever won a batting title. But. Yeah. Paul Molitor had a bunch of big seasons. He had a three forty one at three twenty five three thirty two. But he was always like a top three top four batting average. And Robin yount number one. He wanted to MVP checking. But those are those are big numbers by. Three twenty six thirty six homers one hundred ten RBI's and four hundred on base percentage. And I was talking to mclovin about this that I do there is a place for analytics in baseball. I just think sometimes we get a little too crazy with it. But I do think because of analytics Jake Jacob degrom won the Cy Young, and rightfully so. But I don't know if the voters would have voted him in with ten wins ten years ago. I just I don't think they would have mclovin. Yeah. Maybe he's got great analytics, but baseball specially did that's the most of all sports. Right. I know we have it in basketball, but baseball visit to one to one relationship between the pitcher and the batter you can really measure what's going on now. But he heated up after the all star break hitting three sixty seven twenty five homers, and that was in sixty five games in the second half. You want to know his exit velocity his four knowing you..
