Show Notes

Episode 105 features The BBQ Central Show host, Greg Rempe and the 1st official MLB designated hitter, Ron Blomberg.  

Greg Rempe is the creator and host of the longest running, most listened to, and extremely entertaining show dealing with live fire cooking, The BBQ Central Show.  He joined us back on episode 56 and since then he has been a show supporter while offering numerous helpful tips which we have implemented as we strive to improve and for which we are very grateful.  His show can be heard live every Tuesday night from 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm and is released in podcast format; the first hour on Wednesday and the second hour on Thursday.  Then on Fridays you can catch up on parts of past episodes listening to The Best Moments of The BBQ Central Show in 10 Minutes or Less.  Not only is he well versed in barbecue, but he can talk baseball too.  Part one is mainly barbecue talk, but it is so much more as Greg is extremely candid and willing to discuss everything.  You can find out more about his show by going to http://thebbqcentralshow.com/    

Ron Blomberg was the New York Yankees first overall pick in the 1967 amateur draft and on April 6, 1973, he became the first major-leaguer to bat as a designated hitter in a regular season game.  He is also an author and his latest book, The Captain & Me: On and Off the Field with Thurman Munson  provides great information on Ron's career, but more importantly provides an in-depth look into the special relationship he had with Thurman Munson whom he refers to as his "brother."  Ron and Thurman shared many wonderful times together and hearing him describe their friendship makes one appreciate their special bond.  Ron was an exceptional athlete, played the game hard, and it is quite apparent he has lived his life with the same passion with which he played.  Part one is just the beginning of a very enjoyable discussion.

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