‘2 And A Hook’ is an expression from Baseball:  ‘Throw the guy 2 Fast balls and then a Hook’ (AKA Curve Ball, Wiggly one, Chair etc..)

By James Acevedo – Host (Podcast Veteran )

Guests On The Show:

Today, my brother Daniel joined me for the show.

We talked to MLB XM Home Plate Radio Host Mike Ferrin (16 Minute Mark and a 22 Minute Segment) I asked him about the origin in which he and Morgan Ensberg started this ‘phenomenon’ – and their reaction to how it has blown into a huge fanbase for the guy – based on one night that it was all started by the former Astros player Enberg, Ferrin and CO.

Jose Altuve is the shortest man in the MLB at approximately 5 FT 5, but he does not get cheated at the plate with his heavy swings.  His big heart and hustle have inspired his own measurement.  Go and check out @howmanyaltuves or www.howmanyaltuves.com  for all of your Home Run (or any measurement for that matter) needs.

Next up was Astros County Writer and http://www.howmanyaltuves.com owner Bryan Trostel (41 Minute Mark and a 18 Minutes Segment)  or We talked about how he joined the ‘Jose Altuve’ Phenomenon, created a twitter  account and website surrounding it, and how it has thrived and blossomed over the last 14 months.  We even learned the metric conversion for an ‘ALTUVE’.

Next up was MLB Reports Reds Correspondent Ryan Ritchey (1 HR 13 Minute Mark and a 21 Minutes Segment)  We talked about the Cincinnati Reds being overlooked by the National League and Bruce Bochy for the ALL – Star Game, what their chances  are in the second half of baseball, plus what they might try and do near the Trade Deadline.

My Brother Daniel and I then reflected on our great ALL – Star Game Experiences that we witnessed in the stands of Citi Field.  What it meant to us to see Mariano Rivera play his last ALL – Star Game, and what the HR derby does for the game of baseball.
