This Week In Baseball History

May 2, 2018

With the impressive debut of Shohei Ohtani, commentators are pointing out that no one has had his level of offensive and pitching excellence in the Majors since Babe Ruth. But as special guest Mike Duncan (Revolutions Podcast; The History of Rome; @mikeduncan) notes, that ignores decades of Negro League history that's full of two-way players that rival Ohtani, and even Ruth, in skill on both sides of the ball. Plus, happy birthday Darren Dreifort and Davey Lopes! And farewell to the last living member of the 1947 Dodgers.
