"And then out of the blue, I get another call from red. And Ernie Harwell switched from the Dodgers to the Giants. It was an opening in Brooklyn. Red thought about who should fill it. And as he told me later, he thought, I don't want to get a thoroughly experienced professional sports announcer who might get his nose out of joint because he's only going to do anything here or what about that redheaded kid. Maybe I could meld him and mold him and shape him and so they took me to Florida and on a one month option. And that's 65 years. And as far as the association was read, was like a father in two ways. Number one, he was my severest critic, but two, because he wanted me to succeed like a father with a son. And many, many years later, maybe also because I had red hair, he wrote that I might have been the son. He might have had. So you had a daughter, but no sign. So those are complicated answers to your question. No, it's great. And so that first season, you arrive at and I wonder for you, do you remember if you can take yourself back to that maybe even the first day? What was going through your well, first of all, I had never been to Abbott's field, and I was living up near the George Washington bridge in Washington heights. So I had to really get directions to find myself out of its field. And I was completely overwhelmed. I mean, I'm looking around. Here's this kid who played stick ball in the streets besides baseball and fordham, but I was always playing ball. And now, here I am with Gil Hodges, Jackie Robinson, peewee Reese, Roy campanella, duke Schneider. I mean, it was overwhelming. So all I tried to do is stay out of the way, not say anything. Unless somebody asked me, and when I went on the air, it was like, I didn't try to broadcast what I tried to do is not make a mistake. So that's a different way. But I had two wonderful people, and the relationship in the booth was truly remarkable. I don't think they'll ever be anything quite like that. Because you have the father image that was read, the older brother, or son, was a fellow named Connie Desmond, who was a wonderful announcer in his own right. And then the kid. And that's the way apparently it came out on the air. And criticized me after the game, and then Connie would be the older brother saying, hey, that's okay. You know, you were fine, you know, they'll get better and exercise. Tomorrow. You know, that kind of stuff. So it was a great relationship. And that's how it started off. Out of curiosity, when along the line, did you begin using your famous greeting that you opened your shows with? You know. First of all, when you start broadcasting and we're in New York now. So you have the great Mel Allen, the great Red Barber, the great Russ Hodges. You had also Kurt gowdy. We had a whole bunch of fine announcements, and red gave me a bit of advice. And here I am, wide eyed, 22 years old. And red said to me, young man, remember what you bring into the broadcasting booth. Something that no one else in the world can bring.

"A package surrounding malik smith he also acquired randy arose arena from the cardinals when the cardinals were becoming out of favor. And all of these guys arose arena. What al mvp now. Being a favorite to win rookie of the year so there are just able to turn people over down there in tampa bay. It's certainly very impressive. What neander stunned. And now the terms of the deal. They have not been disclosed. We don't know how much money he's gonna get but he received a promotion and is now the president of baseball operations up from general manager and vice president. So shout out. Eric and it certainly looks like he is there to stay in tampa bay jumping around the league now. Salvador perez continues to crush the baseball. I mean this guy is shooting up the charts when it comes to home runs for a catcher in a season. He now has forty two. And this comes with a little bit of a caveat here right if you look up some of these records the most home runs in a season for a catcher quote unquote catcher his forty five by johnny bench for the nineteen seventy rats. Well he hit thirty eight of those forty five as a catcher obviously playing first base. But if you play. A certain percentage of games behind the dish that constitute is being a catcher for that season so total forty five thirty eight. As a catcher you have hobby lopez for the two thousand and three braves forty three that year but forty two as a catcher which is the most as catcher in a season but second most overall and then you have salvador perez who sit forty two this year so third all time and obviously with three weeks left. It looks like he's at least gonna hit one more pass. Avi lopez could he hit four to get to forty six to pass johnny bench but salvador perez only twenty eight of the forty two. Have come as a catcher this season because he's played a little bit designated hitter so he's still qualifies as the most as a catcher when it comes to big picture but certainly fascinating couple of guys had forty one. You had todd. Hundley for the ninety six mets. He hit all forty one as a catcher roy campanella for the one thousand nine hundred fifty. Three dodgers forty of his forty one came as a catcher and then mike piazza hit forty and ninety seven for the dodgers and ninety nine for the mets in forty came as a catcher so every one of them was as a catcher. Mike piazza in both of those seasons and now when it comes to a career. Salvador perez isn't as high up on those lists of course number one is mike piazza. Four hundred and twenty seven career. Home runs three hundred and ninety six hit as a catcher johnny bench at three eighty nine hit three twenty seven as a catcher fisk kit. Three seventy six three fifty one as a catcher yogi bear up three fifty eight three zero five as a catcher. And then tied for fifth gary carter lance parrish with three twenty four and then pudge rodriguez with three hundred and eleven in seventh place and salvi. He only has a career one hundred ninety three. Now he's only thirty one years old so he plays for seven more years maybe he could get there but when it comes to a single season he's only four away from having the most quote unquote home runs from catcher during a major league baseball season. So certainly a fascinating story line to watch coming down the stretch here. But speaking of home shadow tabar pull's he hit a story book home. Run for the the dodgers against the cardinals pool. Halls was back to saint louis. Obviously he's been back before. But another return to saint. Louis and i got another standing ovation and then in his first at bat took him downtown. So that had to feel good for our pool horses he continues to rake. He's hitting home runs. He's doing exactly what he should be doing. For the dodgers we talked about you know the angels. He wanted to play every day. Well he's not going to be doing that with the dodgers and he's certainly fitting the mole and winning the clip. He's winning makes it a little bit easier to not play every day as opposed to be under five hundred like he would be with the angels. The blue jay as a squad. They've gotten hot. They won six in a row heading into wednesday nights recording. This late here on wednesday. They're continuing to beat up on the yankees. Only a handful of games back now in the wildcard two and a half out in the wild card. So i gave you guys my goals for each team and i said for toronto. Just make the postseason. I didn't know if that'd be possible but they're certainly making a push here over the past couple of days and then you also had blake snell. Who had a no hitter going in a perfect game into the seventh inning on tuesday nights l. to millie striking out eleven angels and he had fifteen consecutive no hit innings. So he had gone. Let's see what was it. I think six or seven in the one start. Maybe it wasn't fifteen. Maybe was thirteen but because he went six and then seven no hit innings to come out. I think thirteen straight no hit innings over the course of two different starts almost fourteen innings but yet thirteen consecutive hitless frames set a franchise record for the padres breaking the mark of twelve and a third set by bill. Laxed it back in one thousand nine hundred seventy four so snell in his last three outings. He's turned it around. He's got a one one eight five. Era in his last three outings and throwing a no knows pretty much last two times. Of course we've got broken up in. The seventh ended up losing the game in a four. Nothing lost to the angels is. The offense. didn't show up for san diego but san diego getting blake. Snell back coming down. The stretch here is exactly what they're going to need if they're going to hold off the reds to win that second wildcard as they have a tough stretch here with the giants and dodgers remaining on the schedule so another episode of The baseball podcast here with me in another update on wander franko. He drew a walk in the seventh inning. On tuesday night to extend his on base streak to.

I guess it was last June up in New York, and he autographs, some things for us and some of which we have in the store. And it was at that time I just started to realize how underappreciated he is as a ballplayer and definitely should be in the Hall of Fame. Yeah, No. Two ways. About fact, Todd. Maybe you can talk a little bit about what people can do to help. Be sure that Leon Day is in the Hall of Fame. Well, the only way that he can get in the hall now is through the Veterans Committee. He is not eligible through the Baseball Writers Association and The Veterans Committee has quite a job of considering, uh former Negro League veterans umpires, executives, 19th century players and players that have been passed over by the Baseball Writers Association. And on this panel. Unfortunately, there's only three former members of Negro League Baseball Monte Irvin, Roy Campanella and Buck O'Neil. So our efforts over the years have been to write to these members of the Veterans Committee, which I think there are.

"Everything like when you had one of these hole in one contest, either an employee of the club like the pro, the assistant, pro or arranger, will set out there to make sure that that hole in one with the big money on is legitimate, legitimate hole in one and by the way for a non golfers, usually a three part holes. If they have, these are no more than 250 yards, so you could reach that whole. That's green in one shot. Well, what happened was a developer out there. The bright idea. He wanted to bribe a mayor from another village for stories rather than go ahead with the usual stuff $30,000 or $20,000 an envelope and sent here. That's too risky. You might get caught by the FBI. So he elaborated. This leverage Scream scheme. He just he set up a charity event. He was running the charity event and who was sitting on like all the three part hole. I think it was the ninth All the Naperville to see and make sure that the whole and one was legitimate. Was a developer forces involved in the mirror. His own company, and the mayor wasn't much If he could. He could hit his broom. I think they put the sun good. And the sun hits the ball toward the green, and the developer raises up. It's in the hole. It's in the hole that he claims. He made a hole in one, which was bonus. He did that. But then the winner got here's what the prize was. You could have a vintage Cadillac worth over $30,000. Or you could have the cash. In this case. The winner took the cash. Instead. Decision to think soon the schemes to unravel the FBI got wind of it. I found out it was a scam. It was an attempt to bribe the official for his own invariants. That's what the developer wanted, and so it all fell apart. That man went to trial and was convicted. Here's the kicker. That's funny on that thing, the developers lawyers said. Hey, the judge gave him five years and three months. That's too much. This man is not all young. He is not in good health. They appealed to the appellate court and the appellate court ruled. They agreed that the defense in this sense, yes, the judge did not. It was an improper sentencing. He should have gotten more and they send it back. We had to be sense between 11 and 14 years instead required everywhere on the developer. So don't say that when you have your charity golf there, but be careful before and they got caught. One other thing. I want to make one can you too long with it, But I got to bring this up my rarely bring in my own personal situation, and but I played a lot of golf and getting a hole in one He's a good shot, but you have to have some luck. They're pretty common nowadays. But at one time when I started, guys I'm talking about this year that I got this proud 1948. I was just a kid. I made a hole in one You know, I got to reprise are very much rare in those days 50 boxes of Wheaties and a big poster that, said John Drummond. Use. It makes holes in one because he eats Wheaties. The breakfast of champions 50 bucks over a small box, but that's still not a bad praise. Right say that Did you save that poster? I saved that poster who want to have got a certificate from on it. But the big poster got torn up and I don't have it anymore. I was showing that people go through. It was. It was too bad, and I wish I'd kept been able to keep it deteriorated on me. If that's the great story. What a crazy story, John. You can have a lot of luck. We have to have a good shot, but you play enough. You might be able to get a hole in one or two. As I say much more common now than they were then. But don't try it on some charity or some phony event you might come back and because their crime doesn't pay crime doesn't pay. Alright. It's time to move to which ended higher. Vince Coleman e. Do you want to keep all five items in or do you want to delete one?

"And if they have a favorite team go out instead they. I think i still think it all started with this kneeling in black lives matter that took took sports and fun of bringing people together and david divisive and And in that has nothing to do with If if i say something like what they want to do is say. You can't say that you're a racist that's In that whole principle of trying to put this guilt trip on somebody who wants to sort this out is racist an cell. So but it's such a shame and that's why discussions should stop you know At the gates of the baseball field. And i think. I think that that's the reason i do this can. Can you think of the people that socialize with. I've never been there but they tell me at football games. They have these parties in like They must be having some fun there and they weren't thinking about some of the eastern tarik nonsense politician so i figured they might see me. There's a politician. What do we do with them. That's a good point. Dr paul because if you look in our history it really was. Sports brought the racist together. You know the the black baseball leagues before when we had segregation and when they integrated the teams have brought people together. Now we're in a situation where they're trying to tear people apart based on race. That's why libertarianism is so attractive because if you use people jewels one of the individuals in baseball that i like was branch rickey because he he brought the you know the first black into it. Roy campanella and jackie robinson that wasn't due to a federal mandate but the movement was on the so much of the segregation whether it's in the military or or the laws segregated. The people themselves in lots of times I've talked to people who were in this transition and Yes it was sort of awkward at times when they the blacks came in and they were uncomfortable. Socially but it really. I think is I we've seen some remarkable things and of people coming together baseball brings people together. That's why i always loved to talk about the great experience in that congressional baseball game because that was one place we did not talk about politics. And to this day if i would see one of those Pity congressman from the other side. As well as side we would remember that we played baseball together in a favourable manner so I'm a strong believer in that. And i used it frequently in trying to and advise my children you know to to get involved them being sports and you know If they work hard our family was a lot of swimming they can. They can use up a lot of energy. That's where the energy she go into having fun. I'm gonna just do a couple of closing one if we can look at this next chart. This is kind of what.
