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) Follow @mikeferrinsxm 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.
Next up was Astros County Writer and http://www.howmanyaltuves.com owner Bryan Trostel (41 Minute Mark and a 18 Minutes Segment) Follow @howmanyaltuves or Follow @The_Batguy 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) Follow @baseballaddicts 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.
(I have my Stats and Facts in all other Minutes) – so go check it out & SPREAD THE WORD!!! Thanks
