This podcast is for the baseball fan with a curious mind. We bring you one event from each day in the calendar and go well beyond the box score. Our stories are brief and fun and come with some surprises.

Mar 26, 2020

On March 26, 1951 —– In an exhibition game at the University of Southern California, Mickey Mantle propels a home run estimated at 654 to 660 feet. The shot clears Bovard Field and then goes the width of a practice football field before landing. Mantle has two homers, a bases-loaded triple, and drives in seven runs as the Yankees flunk the Trojans, 15 – 1.

Listen to Mickey talk New York, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, DiMaggio and Maris. 

Additionally, I will highlight today's Strat O Matic simulation of the 2020 season.
