Today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast was recorded at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

I also try to figure out who will be the first native of Africa to play in the majors.

And part of the podcast was recorded on a hot air balloon.

Ricky Nolasco, Josh Reddick, Corey Kluber and Kirk Nieuwenhuis all owned baseball on June 15, 2013.
