S2 E3 - Interview with Scott Montesano
Scott Montesano, play-by-play voice of the Alton River Dragons, joins us to talk about the 2022 championship, "Unfinished Business," and the fun of a job talking about baseball!
S2 E2 - The 2023 Season Has Begun!
Quenton and Michael discuss what has impressed them most in the first few games of the 2023 season, agree on which new team will have the better record, and disagree on who will win the 2023 championship - hint: NEITHER of them are looking for a repeat champion!
S2 E1 - 2022 Playoff Wrapup
“Hot Stove” edition! We discuss the thrilling end to the 2022 Prospect League season, and the final series between the Chillicothe Paints and the Alton River Dragons!
S1 E11 - The Finals!
S1 E10 - Interview with Brandon Daniels of the Lafayette Aviators
We interview Lafayette Aviators' outfielder, Brandon Daniels, and we talk about transitioning from 1B to OF, playing ball in the midwest vs. the south, the first thing he would do at Wrigley Field, the importance of faith in baseball and life, and... Roll Tide or War Eagle???
S1 E9 - Interview with Jack Lang of the Lafayette Aviators
In this episode, we interview Jack Lang, player for the Lafayette Aviators during the 2021 and 2022 Prospect League seasons. We talk about interacting with the fans, the time he struck out a future Tennessee Volunteer(!), and what's next after an injury has ended his summer baseball season.
S1 E8 - First Half Wrap-up, Second Half Predictions
We give our thoughts on the first half of the 2022 Prospect League season, and who we think will join the four teams who have already qualified for the playoffs. We also talk about our favorite place to sit in the ballpark for a game, and Quenton remarks on the difference in average attendance between the two Ohio-based Prospect League Teams.
S1 E7 - Interview with Ryan Kearney (O'Fallon Hoots Broadcaster)
**TECHNICAL ISSUE** Due to user error on Michael's part, there was a bad echo in Ryan's part of the audio. We cleaned it up about the best we could, but we will look at re-recording this episode to get a higher quality version. It sounds like we were interviewing him through the stadium PA microphone -phone -phone....
We talk with Ryan Kearney, broadcaster with the O'Fallon Hoots, about his first season with the team, the differences between gameday operations for baseball and hockey, and the best places to get food in The Windy City!
S1 E6 - First Half Stretch Run, Our Favorite Fan-Participation Games, and DANG!
Who is making a late move to grab the first half title in their division, and an automatic spot in the playoffs? Also, we talk about league attendance, our favorite fan-participation games, and we give our best attempts at West Virginia Miners' Coach Tim Epling's trademark "Dang!" exclamation. Who does it better, Quenton or Michael??
S1 E5 - Halfway through the First Half, and Walkup Music
S1 E4 - Who's Hot, Who's Not? Players and Teams to Watch!
Two weeks in! We talk about which team is surprising us at the bottom of their division, and which players are having a great season so far (hint: it's Nick Lallathin, Eddie Leon, and DJ Anderson!). We also consider if anyone can catch the Alton River Dragons, and give our thoughts on the possible team names for the Jackon, TN, team joining the Prospect League in 2023!
S1 E3 - Miners @ Paints, Prospect League Ballpark Food
First game of the season between the Miners and Paints, and it was a wild one just like we predicted! Shoutouts to Miners' players Nathan Riddle and Alex Christie.
Plus, we talk about Prospect League baseball park food, and remember a friend from VA Memorial Stadium who passed away during the off-season.
