Two Strike Noise - A Baseball History Podcast

Episode 15 - Hanshin Tigers Pt. 1

May 13, 2019

Trevor from The Hanshin Tigers English News joins Jeff and Mark to finally set the record straight about the Curse of the Colonel. He also talks about some of the legendary characters from both the Hanshin Tigers and the NPB. Hear the incredible story of one of Japan's iron-men, who played through a broken wrist to keep his consecutive innings played streak alive, even hitting a home run as well as how some former MLB players were thought of after their time in the NPB (hint, Mike Greenwell got lost in translation!). Plus greatest infield arms and the Negro League Museum and Hall of Fame next induction class.
