Show Notes

You deserve a big bonus so we give you bonus episode 89.

Anthony DiComo is the New York Mets beat writer for MLB.com and a former chairman of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America’s New York chapter.  He also is an analyst for the SNY television channel and a regular contributor to the MLB Network. He has co-authored the book, The Captain: A Memoir with former NY Mets third baseman David Wright on Wright's humble beginnings and illustrious baseball career which was cut short due to injuries and a physical ailment he just could not overcome. David Wright became The Captain of the team he always rooted for due to hard work and a commitment to the game he loved.

Wright was a seven-time All-Star, a two-time Gold Glove Award winner, and a two-time Silver Slugger Award winner. He holds many Mets franchise records and was nicknamed "Captain America" after his performance in the 2013 World Baseball Classic. That and so much more are what he has accomplished as a player.

DiComo gives us a good look at the player who is beloved in New York and respected throughout the rest of the country.  We miss seeing David Wright in a NY Mets uniform, but greatly enjoyed the chance to speak with Anthony.

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