This Week In Baseball History

Jan 5, 2023

The last of the legal spitballers, Burleigh Grimes moistily made his way toward the Hall of Fame 104 years ago this week when he was traded from the Pittsburgh Pirates to the Brooklyn Robins. He would immediately take to his new team and become one of the best pitchers in the National League. Mike and Bill look back at the long, conflict-filled career that ushered out baseball's wetter, grosser past. 

Plus happy birthday to Webster McDonald and Luis Sojo!
