We come away from a Bowie Baysox game with stars in our eyes for Jackson Holliday’s bat and water repellant gear in the form of giveaway Hawaiian shirts. Pottymouth catches us up with Nats BF CJ Abrams, and the surge of the other side of that trade, Juan Soto. Triston Casas homers twice off of Max and Cal Raleigh contributes to a SEA win rivaling the Taylor Swift concert across the street for excitement. Jarred kicks a water cooler and it ends exactly as badly as you’d think. We crosstrain with Messi’s debut and the departure of the Commander’s messy ownership, with beer. Those LSU boys continue to make draft history a week later. The ATL Hammers become the first publicly traded MLB franchise (does that open up an opportunity to influence a name change?), and we prep you for that other kind of trade as the deadline approaches next Tuesday. It’s Women in Baseball Week and we celebrate the Twins and Philly Girls Baseball participating in style as well as Stella Weaver, pitching in the Little League regionals. We’re already considering a return trip to Miami, for next February’s Serie del Caribe. Last chance to donate to Proud to Be in Baseball in honor of our 300th episode!
