Show Notes

Our guests will surprise you as the long wait for episode 84 is over and the second half of each conversation is even better than the first.

Thomas W. Gilbert is the author of How Baseball Happened:  Outrageous Lies Exposed!  The True Story Revealed.  The book shatters the many myths which so many of us believe are true on baseball's origins, and it provides fascinating stories about its many true founders.  How this great game came to be the sport we love today is quite interesting and wonderful.  Thomas takes us back through time, and it is a journey you will thoroughly enjoy.  What you may not expect is the wonderful barbecue talk, and we are so glad to discuss both baseball and barbecue with Thomas.

Paulie Gee took some time to discover his true passion, but once he discovered it, he never looked back. In just 10 years he has become a name synonymous with absolutely delicious pizza. The high heat which grills produce is perfect for pizza making and Paulie is considered one of the best. He says he was nervous about coming on since we have had many well known guests, but Paulie does not realize how excited we were to have him on. Pizza, barbecue, and baseball are among the things we discuss, but you get the feeling there is not much he cannot talk about with an infectious passion. In this half, Paulie shows his love for food is matched with his love for baseball.

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.

We recommend you go to Fifth & Cherry, for wonderful cutting boards and for grill tools and clothing for barbecue and baseball fans and the Pandemic Baseball Book Club,  to find many of the wonderful books we have featured as well as some additional swag.

We truly appreciate our listeners and hope that all of you are staying safe.
