Frank Sinatra, Mr. Baseball, & a Brooklyn Identity Crisis

Noah & Brandon explore the inspiring story of Eric Davis.


Short Hops & Tall Tales

Noah and Brandon are back with another episode, and this time, it’s all about pranks. They unearth a rapidly escalating (and disturbing) gag war between the Hall of Famer Don Drysdale and the Cardinals’ Ken Boyer, featuring a cameo from Ol’ Blue Eyes himself! Then, they dive into another wild story, this time surrounding a trade from the MLB to Japan! Plus, “bug bruisers” (whatever that means)!
