It’s Not Even Kevin Costner’s Best Baseball Movie

Patti and the Pottymouth celebrate their 200th episode with a rant. Turns out we have some opinions and suggestions regarding the Field of Dreams game. We've got love for Tyler Gilbert, Joey Votto, and Chris Sale and his weird shirt. We say Pete Rose (more than once!), climate change, the Czech Republic, and for the 200th time, Goodnight, Pottymouth!

Surprising no one, Patti and the Pottymouth celebrate their 200th episode with a rant. Turns out we have some opinions and suggestions regarding the Field of Dreams game: How to actually include Iowans in baseball, better uses for all that cash, meaningful alternative sites (including supporting the proposed International Women’s Baseball Center Museum and Activity Center at the home of the Rockford Peaches), and a nod to FiveThirtyEights’ take on a modern FoD lineup.

We celebrate Tyler Gilbert’s first-start no-no, the triumphant return of Chris Sale and his weird shirt, and Joey Votto Still Banging. The Police Blotter finds minor leagues playing in air unhealthy to breathe, MLB considering deals with Barstool Sports despite their documented misogyny and racism, and a WashPost report that again begs the question, what did the Dodgers know before signing Trevor Bauer?

Pottymouth introduces you to Francela Verdura, a 14 year old girl from Costa Rica who played in the recent Baseball for All Nationals. Watch for their  full interview, in Spanish, later this week. Last weekend’s Women’s College Invitational was a step to developing women’s club baseball on the way to making women’s  baseball an NCAA sanctioned sport.

We say Pete Rose (more than once!), climate change, and the Czech Republic.
