The City that never sleeps

This is Yankees‘ week with our podcast featuring the New York Yankees being released on Friday, July 22nd.  The Smolder family from Toronto, Canada headed south for a baseball road trip to remember. Boston on the 4th of July, Yankee Stadium to watch future Hall of Famer, Derek Jeter collect hit 3,000 and a visit to the sleepy village of Cooperstown to salute Yankee greats and Derek Jeter’s future home.  Click here to read their story.

Better than their written account will be their interview as Ed Kasputis interviews Mike and Donna Smolders.  You’ll hear Donna compare and contrast Fenway Park to New Yankee Stadium.  Mike loves Jackie Robinson.  Donna is on the gold standard, only Babe Ruth will do when it comes to baseball idols. The family visited the graves of both as the lives of these two great men continue to inspire fans who love the game.

Billy Martin

This week is A’s week with our podcast featuring the Oakland A’s being released on Friday, September 10th.  Billy Martin played second base and managed in the Major Leagues.  While best known for managing the New York Yankees, Martin managed the Oakland A’s from 1980 through 1982.

Martin was born and raised in Berkley.  During Martin’s tenure with the A’s, he perfected a style of play called Billyball with the main feature being aggressive base running.

Martin was killed as a passenger in a one car crash near his farm in Port Crane, New York.  Martin is buried 150 feet from Babe Ruth at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne, New York.
