Episode 192 - King Kong, Dave Kingman

November 22, 2022

We may be in the off-season but we found a way you can still listen to a game while drifting off to sleep, baseball ASMR. Plus we check in with the Fighters new stadium where they apparently forgot to measure, remember a great Rick Sutcliffe story and talk some Saved By the Bell Fantasy Camp. Our main story is about a big guy who hit some monster home runs but did not like being a baseball player it seems, Dave Kingman. We hear about some of his biggest and longest dingers as well as his ice cream parlor? Then we rip some 2000 Topps in Wax Pack Heroes.

Episode 191 - Your Newest Hall of Fame Members Are…

Episode 191 - Your Newest Hall of Fame Members Are…

November 15, 2022

We’re back at it this week where we discuss a former show favorite who was cast in the original movie production of Grease but turned down the role. Who was it? Then we dive into the Contemporary Baseball Era Players Committee’s final ballot and go through all of the numbers as well as some other equally important things about each player like quality of nicknames, controversies and ofcourse pop culture relevance. Taking all of that into account, we have two new Hall of Fame members that will no doubt open the flood gates for some other players that have been left out for one specific reason. Don’t blame us! We’re just adding the number up! Finally, a quick version of Wax Pack Heroes with some 1990 Donruss.

Episode 190 - Tales From the Dugout v29

Episode 190 - Tales From the Dugout v29

November 8, 2022

The baseball season is over, but fret not, we have another action packed podcast about nothing but, wait for it…baseball. We’ve got all the odd facts and records from this year’s post-season, a mascot beaning, Randy Johnson tipping pitches, Jose Canseco spouting off on social media again and some Ted Williams numbers that reinforce the fact that Ted Williams was good at baseball. In this edition of Tales from the Dugout, we hear about a Phillies fan’s bathroom, you’re going to have to listen to figure that one out. Juan Soto’s debut time machine, a pitcher that literally gave his all for his team and Ichiro’s hit number compared to other 27 year old rookies. In Wax Pack Heroes we stake another stab at some minor league cards with much better results than last time.

Episode 189 - Mick the Quick, Mickey Rivers

Episode 189 - Mick the Quick, Mickey Rivers

November 1, 2022

We start out the final week of MLB this year with some World Series talk, some cryptic comments from the commissioner about extra innings next season, we check in on the Climax Series from the NPB, rehash some David Wells memorabilia video and answer our first round of trivia for the off season. In our main segment, we talk about one of the best lead off batters from the 70’s in Mick the Quick, Mickey Rivers. He was always a threat on the base paths and a favorite in the locker room with both teammates and reporters. His speed on the bases was matched only by his quick wit. Then, in an epic Wax Pack Heroes, we open some 1991 Score and score (get it) not one, but two Ozzie Canseco cards! It went downhill from there.

Episode 188 - That Takes Balls

Episode 188 - That Takes Balls

October 25, 2022

It’s World Series time! We get ready as MLB wraps up the season by looking forward to some more baseball across the world to keep us busy until spring, plus we find out what the dictionary thinks about Hunter Strickland, we look at players who have played for their namesake, have what might be our final debut of the season and dip our toes in the trivia pool for the first time since March! Our main segment this week documents the history of balls. Get your mind out of the gutter, we’re talking pitched balls and umpires were actually forced to call them and why they were considered unmanly as a way of getting on base. In Wax Pack Heroes Mark makes the biggest mistake in WPH history, can he over come it?

Episode 187 - Greg Minton, The Moon Man

Episode 187 - Greg Minton, The Moon Man

October 18, 2022

This week in BP, which #MLB playoff announcer has surprised us, what was Randy Johnson’s tell and a very large fine is levied but to whom? Our main story this week is about the aptly named Moon Man, Greg Minton. The nickname fit him for a couple of reasons, but the original one is kinda gross, just like his sinker. It was almost un-hittable for a while. The Moon Man also applies to some of Greg pranks, right up our alley. In Wax Pack Heroes we rip some 1988 Fleer. Hint one pack is pretty good, the other is not.

Episode 186 - Big Daddy, Cecil Fielder

Episode 186 - Big Daddy, Cecil Fielder

October 11, 2022

So much MLB playoff stuff to get through in our BP segment, new units of measurements, last games for Hall of Famers, the Seattle Mariners pacing the league in the past 20 seasons, some outstanding (but not in a good way) caught stealing numbers and a truly forgettable unforgettable debut. In our main segment, we recap the first real HR race since Maris’ 1961 season, Cecil Fielder and his 51 long balls in 1990 plus some other highs and lows of Big Daddy’s career. In Wax Pack Heroes we open some 2000 Topps and get some big names, a couple of whom we don’t want to talk about (but still do).

Episode 185 - Tales from the Dugout v28

October 4, 2022

Big Boss hangs it up, kind of, Yoenis Cespedes is helping Aaron Judge hit homers, kind of, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia is dethroned as clubhouse managers least favorite player. All that plus some crazy tales from the dugout as we run through some quick stories of forgotten players, games and rainouts from the past this week. In Wax Pack Heroes we rip some Score and Donruss to see who can compile the best team based on stats and mustaches.

Episode 183 - 2001 MLB Contraction

Episode 183 - 2001 MLB Contraction

September 20, 2022

If you were left wanting more MLB weather-related names last week, we got you! Also a crazy story from Chicago about the 1919 World Series, Lars Nootbaar continues to be the best baseball player that sounds like a candy bar, a bunch of debuts including a Cleveland Spiders reference and the obligatory Seinfeld clip. The main topic this week is the planned contraction of two teams for the 2002 season that never happened, but some of the teams that were considered certainly are worth a look. Wax Pack Heroes we finish the pack of 2003 Topps we started last week with some names we haven’t had before.
