Got this e-mail recently from Eric Greenberg ...
Thought some of your readers might be interested in a new podcast I did about The Baseball Bunch. If you're not familiar with the show, it was a kids series in the '80s hosted by Johnny Bench that tought kids about baseball and featured all kinds of great major league guest stars. Most importantly to your readers, it was filmed in Tucson.
This spring marks the 25th anniversary of the show and I recently put together a group discussion with three of the original kids on the series and the San Diego Chicken who was also on the show. Two of the kids I interviewed grew up on Tucson and were playing little league there at the time they were picked.
You can find the podcast here.
