Episode 89 - Tales from the Dugout v13

October 27, 2020

In this special, scary Halloween edition of Tales from the Dugout we talk about the scariest of all baseball topics, Jell-O? Jell-O-gate reeked havoc with the 1982 Seattle Mariners, we relive the horror. Also, really ailed Wally Pipp? Hint, it wasn’t just a headache. And finally, Bill Mazeroski dashed the Yankees dreams in the 1960 World Series, but whatever happened to the ball? Plus, Wax Pack Heroes takes on 1988 Donruss.

Episode 87 - Ron LeFlore Or Is That LaVar Burton?

Episode 87 - Ron LeFlore Or Is That LaVar Burton?

October 13, 2020

Ron LeFlore is the only player to have lead both leagues in stolen bases. Until this week that was about all we really knew about him. Now, we know alot more. He was discovered while playing in a prison baseball league, because, well, he was in jail. Form the exercise yard to Tiger Stadium LeFlore went on to become an All Star but he could not escape his old life. Hear the whole story or watch the ABC made for tv movie One In A Million. Probably easier to listen to the pod to be honest. Plus, 1988 Fleer s the weapon of choice for this week’s Wax Pack Heroes.

Episode 85 - Boneheads

September 29, 2020

There’s book smarts, street smarts and then there’s #baseball smarts. Just because you play baseball doesn’t mean you possess the latter. We look at some of the most questionable plays made on the field and even some off. From Babe Ruth to Seattle Mariners managerial legend Maury Wills, we prove that Jose Canseco is not alone when it comes to embarrassing moments on the diamond.     We give the answer to our hardest trivia question ever and continue the new season of Wax Pack Heroes apparently brought to you by the letter “Z”.

Episode 84 - Steve Dalkowski Throws Hard, Can’t Aim

Episode 84 - Steve Dalkowski Throws Hard, Can’t Aim

September 22, 2020

A real-life Nuke LaLoosh or maybe Syd Finch, that’s Steve Dalkowski. LaLoosh is even said to be loosely based on the Orioles fireballer who never quit knew where the ball was going to end up. One thing everybody knew though, it was going to get there really fast. Hear about the live arm that made Dalko a legend. Wax Pack Heroes this week sees a couple of packs of 1990 Fleer donated by a listener. Who will strike it rich?

Episode 83 - Popeye, Zim, The Gerbil, Baseball Lifer, Don Zimmer

September 15, 2020

Just imagine never collecting a single paycheck, your entire life, that you didn’t earn from baseball? That was the dream life that Don Zimmer got the chance to live. From player, to coach, to manager to baseball legend. The man with the face only a mother could love spent 66 years in the game, he wore uniforms for more teams than he didn’t. This week we talk about all facets of his career, from the metal screws in his head to the Boys of Zimmer. Plus we look to break to deadlock in season two of Wax pack Heroes with a couple of packs of 1989 Topps.

Episode 82 - Joe Bauman, the Biggest Bat You’ve Never Heard Of

Episode 82 - Joe Bauman, the Biggest Bat You’ve Never Heard Of

September 8, 2020

Chickens in the outfield, bags of flour dropping on the infield from above and fewer pictures of all of this than of Bigfoot. We’ll get to the bottom of this Dodger Field mystery. Plus chicks dig the long ball. If that’s true, Joe Bauman must have been very popular in the Longhorn League. Joe put together what might be the best season in the history of baseball in 1954. Babe Ruth, Roger Maris, even Mark McGwire could not equal the 138 game totals Joe put up for the Roswell Rockets. We’ll share all the gaudy numbers. Finally, 6-year MLB veteran Wes Chamberlain (Phillies & Red Sox) joins us for a round of Wax Pack Heroes. Where will he land on our leader board and just how many Hall of Famers can one pack contain?

Episode 81 - Tales from the Dugout v12

September 1, 2020

This week we talk about Wade Boggs losing the International League batting title on the last game of the season because of some very questionable  tactics by the other team, who just happened to have the guy who was in second place. Also, more stories involving baseball and lightning (it’s a thing apparently for us lately), the history of the Athletics elephant mascot and how many different names does the eeuphus pitch have?  Finally, in Wax Pack Heroes we take on a couple of packs of 1987 Topps and learn about alot of second careers some players had in the off season.

Episode 80 - West Coast Negro Baseball Association & 10 Cent Beers!

August 25, 2020

This week we reveal our baseball pet peeves, Shoeless Joe & pitchers winning batting titles? We go in depth on the very brief existence of the West Coast Negro Baseball Association, a league with the best intentions & backing that never really found a foothold. Plus, a mediocre Cleveland baseball team, tempers flaring between teams, drinking age of 18 & .10 cent beers. What could possibly go wrong?  Also, a new season of Wax Pack Heroes starts after Mark is presented with his ornate championship crown.
