Willie Mays Mind Games, Female Umpires, & Hot Stove Pt2 (w/ Greg Proops)

Wed Feb 28 2018 (01:31:23)

Rhea talks to the comedy world's premiere baseball mind, GREG PROOPS, about the mental side of baseball, including genius and not-so-genius managerial moves, playing angry, and why Willie Mays may be the smartest ball player of all time.

Greg also tells some truly unforgettable baseball stories... postseason memories, meeting Joe Madden at the breakfast table... too many stories to count.

PLUS Rhea talks about women in baseball (and the lack thereof), female umpires, the Sonoma Stompers, and the ways in which other professional baseball leagues (besides the MLB) are making a way for female players and non-gender binary players.

AND Rhea analyzes more Hot Stove moves, including the Yu Darvish signing, Jake Arrieta predictions, and hot takes on the Diamondbacks, and Rockies.
