Len & Jeff

Episode 65 is guaranteed to satisfy baseball and barbecue lovers.

Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, https://nlbm.com/ was our very first podcast guest, and we are thrilled that he is back to talk more baseball history.  He is a wonderful storyteller, and we ask him about the African American baseball players who were the first to play on each of the 16 teams in existence after Jackie Robinson first broke baseball's color barrier in 1947.  There is not much Bob does not know about baseball history, so we throw in some more questions, including our thirst for knowledge about the great Oscar Charleston. This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Negro Leagues and Jeff and Len both tip our caps as a show of admiration and respect.


Michael Mullen and Brett Mandel are joining us for the first time, but our devoted listeners should already be very familiar with their company, Baseball BBQ, https://baseballbbq.com/ as we have been promoting their wonderful one-of-a-kind, personalized baseball themed barbecue tools and hats and shirts.  We learn where the idea for this new and exciting business came from, what they are doing at present, and where they are heading.  This is a fantastic company that shares our love for baseball and barbecue and uses that love in their great products.  Listen to the interview, visit their website, and purchase any of the numerous products that will become the center of attention at your next barbecue.

We once again conclude the show with the wonderful song, "Baseball Always Brings You Home" from Dave Dresser and Shel Krakofsky.

Please know how much we appreciate our listeners.  We hope that all of you are staying safe.
