Len & Jeff

Triple plays are a rarity, but we give you one with episode 87.

Marjorie Adams is the great-granddaughter of Daniel Lucius "Doc" Adams who wrote the 1857 "Laws of Base Ball" as well as creating the shortstop position and is considered to be one of baseball's founders.  The original "Laws of Base Ball" were sold at an auction in 2016 for $3.26 million.  Despite all of this, he is still not a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, but if our guest has anything to do with it, that blatant over site will soon be corrected.  This interview would not be possible without the introduction provided by our episode 86 guest, Jeff Kornhaas who we all know as Pinetar.  Pinetar sits in with us and adds his wonderful contributions to a conversation we hoped would never end.  Please enjoy our talk with someone we consider to be as close to baseball royalty as one can get.

Steve Ray is known to the barbecue world for so many reasons. He is the pitmaster on the Owls Nest BBQ team, owner of the Owls Nest Barbecue Supply Shop in Ooltewah, Tennessee, and he was an embedded correspondent on The BBQ Central Show. He even filled in twice as host for the BBQ Central Show. What is absolutely incredible is that Steve first became interested in barbecue when he saw the television show, BBQ Pitmasters in his 50's, and it sparked a desire which has now become an obsession. We are the fortunate ones he followed this newfound passion as we get to converse with a humble, yet extremely knowledgeable cook. 

Gary Looney makes his long awaited return. You may recall that in episode 56 we welcomed Gary as Jeff had met him last year on his visit to spring training in Arizona just prior to the pandemic shutting everything down. We asked Gary to come back on to discuss what spring training during the pandemic is like and he did not disappoint. Gary gave us some great insight and answered our questions on how this year's training camp is unlike any others.

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.
