So many little things happened this week and our podcast this week is a recap of them all. There was one thing that I cannot believe I left out of the podcast and that is two cycles happened this week! Shohei Ohtani with the Angels and Jake Bauers with the Indians, two cycles two days in a row!
In my week, in the baseball world, I went to a minor league game on Friday night seeing the Augusta Greenjackets host the Rome Braves in the South Atlantic League. It was a standing room only game for me, does this ever happen at major league stadiums? It was alright, the weather was nice and it was an entertaining game. Also it was the first drone light show in all of baseball!
Let’s start this story in Cincinnati, Ohio. My main purpose of going to Ohio was to attend Game of Thrones night, the Reds would be hosting the Chicago Cubs! I think we all know how I feel about the Cubbies, but I didn’t care who they were playing. I just wanted my picture a top the Iron Throne and to get a bobblehead.
It ended up being a pretty good ball game. My favorite of the regular season. The game went into ten innings, with Yasiel Puig hitting a walk off homerun. Letting the worst time in Central Division beat the best one at 6-5.
Our next series brought in the Los Angeles Dodgers. I was pretty confident of how this game was going to go and I am glad that I was right. Home run after home run happened, it is what the Dodgers are known for. The Dodgers came out on top of this game at 6-0.
Let’s take thing up to The Land now. Cleveland was cold, but that’s how it almost always seems to be when I go to American League games. I really liked Progressive Field, I cannot wait to see how the Allstar Game turns out here in about a month. The Oakland A’s beat the Cleveland Indians 6-4.
If you were at the live stream, you have no idea what I am talking about. The live stream went fine but the recording on Youtube only uploaded around thirty seconds of it, I’m so sorry! I still wanted to tell you guys what I got, or the closest thing that I can find on their website! If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, I will leave a link at the bottom of this post to the MLB shop!

This week we discuss my first outing to a Coastal Plain League game of the season, a league where college players play in the summer!
In terms of MLB we spoke of the draft and the top five picks.
Our main subject though was none other than the lovable losers. The Billy Goat Curse, the Steve Bartman Incident, and fans getting hit with foul balls. Should the net be extended to the foul pole? Check out the podcast to see what my thoughts are!
