This week is Marlins‘ week with our podcast featuring the Florida Marlins being released on Friday, August 26th.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of the Caribbean and the United States East Coast in harm’s way of Hurricane Irene.

During our next podcast, Ed Kasputis will interview Dave Matejczyk who visited the New York Mets baseball academy in the Dominican Republic earlier this month.  During his interview, Matejczyk described the Dominican Republic as “baseball heaven.  Let’s pray that “baseball heaven” is protected from Irene’s wrath.
