We are in the Valley of the Sun, admiring one of the greatest ballparks ever built, Chase Field. Ed, Farley and Mark explore the Phoenix area while applying lots of sun screen. Ed then interviews Rodney Johnson, official scorer for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ed then gets us pointed toward Omaha as he interviews super fan, Larry Roth about the upcoming College World Series. Our PhD committee closes out the podcast by heading east and traveling back to the future. Next stop, St. Louis – the Gateway to the West.
