Milt Mason, Around the Horn, & Dr. Frankenpitch

Noah & Brandon explore the origin of one of MLB's wildest mascots.


Short Hops & Tall Tales — Brandon & Noah are back with a brand new episode! This one is an origin story of sorts, as they dive into the remarkable Milt Mason, a man who braved living at the top of the scoreboard at Milwaukee County Stadium. They also explored the roots of the phrase “Around the Horn,” and debut a frightening new game where they draft an all-time pitching repertoire!
