Baseball and BBQ Episode #81: Kurt Bevacqua and Doug Scheiding, Talking Baseball Hall of Fame and Barbecue
Show Notes

They're baaack!  Two great guests return for a spirited discussion on baseball, including who should get in the MLB Hall of Fame and, of course, barbecue.

Kurt Bevacqua is a 15-year Major League Baseball veteran who played for five different teams, most notably the San Diego Padres.  He not only played in the 1984 World Series, but he hit two home runs in that series.  Staying in the Major Leagues for 15 years is no easy task, but he managed to do that and excel while playing with some of the game's greats.  He knows a ton about the game, and he shares his knowledge and opinions.  He was a huge hit the first time we had him on, and we could not wait to bring him on again.

Doug Scheiding makes a triumphant return and awes us with his incredible baseball knowledge. If you are familiar with his fine work as the longest running embedded correspondent on The BBQ Central Show, you know he is a rocket scientist, an award-winning pitmaster for the Rogue Cookers barbecue competition team, a Traeger Pellet Grills representative, and a Head Country brand ambassador. What you may not know is that he is an avid Chicago Cubs fan and an extremely knowledgeable baseball fan. Doug has very quickly become a fan favorite, and we hope you will enjoy all that he brings to the show.

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