Ozzie Smith joins the podcast this week! He was made available to us by Kingsford Charcoal, which has a new campaign in which fans are encouraged to discuss their favorite parts of baseball using the hashtag #BestOfBaseball. We discussed:
- Ozzie’s favorite part of baseball is, unsurprisingly, the web gem. Why?
- The number of African-Americans playing baseball has diminished greatly in the last few decades. What would he do to buck that trend? If he were growing up in Los Angeles now, would he play baseball or another sport?
- Having his candidacy for Dancing With the Stars rejected.
- The longstanding feud between Ozzie and Tony La Russa.
- Memories of the 1982 World Series.
Hope you enjoy!
