Acclaimed baseball writer Jared Diamond makes his 2nd appearance on the show. This recording was at the end of March 2020 and was supposed to coincide with the opening of the 2020 Baseball season. The coronavirus pandemic made that impossible, so Diamond opens the show with the latest on MLB’s hopes to save the season.
Then, they get into his 1st book, “Swing Kings: The Inside Story of Baseball’s Home Run Revolution.” They talk about the new methods that take place in baseball, and the unique origins and methods used to change the game. That also becomes a debate on whether all these changes are good for the sport.
