Interviewing Red Barber and where will Harper go
Baseball is determined to stymie clubs from using the latest technology to steal signs. And even though Manny Machado has signed with the San Diego Padres, there is still tension between the owners and players over free agency signings. I talk about that and other recent baseball topics.
Also, I look back at the late, great Red Barber, one of the pioneer, baseball broadcasters. I interviewed Red in 1978 and provide some background in the podcast. I also replay the interview I recorded with Red, who along with Mel Allen, were the first broadcasters to be inducted into the broadcasters wing of the baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.
