Tom Gauthier, of the NH Fisher Cats, called in this morning for our In The Bullpen segment. He responded to Rich’s inquiry regarding baseball players possibly doing on-air interviews on our show.
How physically demanding is it to play in the minor leagues? Although not as demanding as some sports, when you include travel, the days can be long.
Many of the players, especially the pitchers, are quite tall, and several hours on a bus takes it’s toll. Tom goes on to describe the Memorial Day activities planned for the park, and he invited us to a memorial for Blake Morrison, US Navy Seal killed in action. A moment of silence will be observed.
On Monday, free tickets and meal will be available to the first one thousand veterans and their families. A red white and blue weekend!
