Episode 68: 5-Pitch Chex Mix and Game Day Hair

Welcome to Barbecast 68! This week’s show has two special guests: a minor league pitcher and a major league ballgirl. Our first guest (at 26:03) is Chase De Jong, a right-handed pitcher in the Dodgers organization who was recently traded from Toronto for international bonus money. We talked to Chase about that experience and much more, including…

  • having a cousin that played for the Jays
  • being a 2nd round pick
  • playing in the Appalachian League
  • an hour-by-hour timeline of getting traded to the Dodgers
  • …and more!

Next (at 1:00:35), we participated in yet another B-Ref Battle of extraordinary baseball names and laughed at them because they are funny. Our second special guest this week (at 1:25:16) is Celine Fowler, a softball player for Central Washington University and one of the many ballgirls for the Seattle Mariners. We talked to her about softball and how the hell she became a major league ballgirl. It was great! Tales from Logdog with Lana Berry (at 2:00:01) covered what Lana would trade in her life for something from our lives. It was a tremendously strange conversation. We concluded with a somber Barbecuers update on the tragic end to our season :( Thanks for listening!

Episode 67: The Best Podcast Money Can Buy

Welcome to Barbecast 67! Our special guest this week (at 21:30) is the author of “The Best Team Money Can Buy”, Molly Knight. TBTMCB is Baseball Twitter’s favorite thing at the moment and we also enjoy it quite a bit, so we had Molly on to talk about some of the highlights of the book, including…

  • PUIG. Duh.
  • The evolution of Zack Greinke as a Dodger
  • what the hell Ned Colleti is up to
  • how writing the book has affected Molly’s Dodger fanhood
  • …and more!

After Molly, we participated in yet another B-Ref Battle chock full of absurd sounds that are actually names and a fair share of World War II jokes. Tales from Logdog with Lana Berry covered how her roommate Molly’s book has positively and affected HER life since she moved in…and how much she likes the book, of course. We concluded with an exciting Barbecuers update and an update on our remaining summer plans. Thanks for listening <3

Buy Molly’s book!

Episode 66: 6’0”, 212 lb Little League World Series Champion

Welcome to Barbecast 66! After last episode’s 1,000 pitch festivities, we’ve returned this week with a fairly regular Barbecast — at least, as regular as Barbecasts go. Our special guest this week (at 15:47) is Luke Ramirez, one of the most notorious players in Little League World Series history and a huge part of the 2009 LLWS Champion Chula Vista team. We talked to Luke about all the ridiculousness surrounding the Little League World Series, including:

After we talked to Luke (at 59:05), we participated in yet another B-Ref Battle of extraordinary baseball names. After B-Ref (at 1:18:08), Tales from Logdog with Lana Berry covered Lana’s #FinalVote candidacy and why she doesn’t even really wanna get voted into the All-Star Game. We conclude with a brief discussion on our recent trip to North Carolina and look ahead to the rest of the summer. Thanks for listening <3
