During our third episode of the ballgame, we had on 28 year MLB Umpire Jim Evans. Jim talked about the passing of Earl Weaver and the contentious relationship he had with umpires. Jim is the owner and operator of the Academy of Professional Umpiring and talked with us about arguments with Earl and how he once lost a stopwatch to him.
Our third show took place eighteen days before 2013 Spring Training and took place the week that we lost two Hall of Famers in Earl Weaver and Stan Musial. We talked with 28 year MLB Umpiring veteran Jim Evans about the passing of Earl Weaver. Evans recounted some of his favorite Weaver stories and talked about his unique method of arguing with umpires. Later in the show we talked about the legend Stan Musial and his ability to hit without striking out. Finally, we finished the show by opening Greg Pryor’s fan mail.
