Ep. 218 - Player-Managers, Baseball & the Olympics
Show Notes

The role of baseball player-manager was fairly commonplace in the early years of #MLB,  Some great players like HOFers Nap Lajoie, Lou Boudreau, Bill Dickey, Frankie Frisch, and Honus Wagner to name a few.  We talk about why there are no longer player-managers in baseball and who of today's players might be a good player-manager.  Then we talk about the Olympic Games not just because baseball and softball are back in the Games!
