Baseball Returns

Baseball is here again and we turn to ESPN's Tim Kurkjian to give his predictions. Of course, we know the Yankees are the Yankees. So maybe he can help us figure out how, in the time where the Boston Red Sox can be sold for almost $700 million, Major League Baseball is in so much financial trouble, it figures two teams have to go away.

Ron Santo

The term "baseball man" is applied to guys who don't just play the game, but make it their lives. Ron Santo, formerly a third baseman with the Chicago Cubs, possible Hall of Famer, currently a broadcaster with the team, certainly qualifies for that title. Steve Goldstein of member station KJZZ in Mesa, Arizona reports that recent serious health problems have not diminished Santo's love for baseball and the Cubs or his determination to remain connected to both.

The real story.

Final Four

The men's Final Four looks to be a good one. And we once again have Pat Forde of the Louisville Courier-Journal join us to dissect the four teams and final games, further dispel the myth of a certain coach named Bob, and maybe give a prediction or two.

Kitty Baldridge has been coaching basketball for more than thirty years. She's never used a whistle. It wouldn't be any use because her players are deaf. Wayne Coffey, a sports columnist for The New York Daily News, has written "Winning Sounds Like This," a which tells the story of the women's basketball team at Gallaudet University in Washington D.C. He joined Bill in the studio to discuss his book.

Charlie Pierce

Bill Littlefield and Only A Game analyst Charlie Pierce discuss: Arkansas scholarship standards, Magic for Mayor and, the Texas Rangers: The Island of Misfit Baseball Players.

However, some soccer analysts think the team got a little too much help from the league to finally become a soccer power. Others just say it's fairly typical of the often-wacky world of the MLS.
