Baseball and BBQ Episode #85: Bobby Valentine
Show Notes

We love our listeners and our guests so on this day of love we present you with a very special Valentine's Day episode, 85.  

Bobby Valentine or as most people call him, Bobby V is one of the most loved, well known, respected, colorful, and celebrated ambassadors of the game.  His life has been what movies are made of and his incredible stories will keep you riveted. A former Major League Baseball player and manager in both the United States and Japan; he currently works as the athletic director at Sacred Heart University.  Many people know him for one game in which he was ejected and then came back in disguise, but that is a mere drop in the bucket in a career and life that is filled with special people and events.  He has worked for a man who would one day become President of the United States, been a restaurateur, a champion ballroom dancer, an ESPN baseball analyst, and manager of the New York Mets as they faced the New York Yankees in the famous Subway Series in the year 2000.

We thoroughly enjoyed our conversation, and we hope you will too.

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.

If you would like to contact the show, we would love to hear from you.
