“I am glad, that I am lost, in my own little world of baseball.”

This week is Orioles week with our podcast featuring the Baltimore Orioles being released on Friday, September 9th.  Ed Kasputis will be interviewing two great guests about the magic of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.  Ed will interview fellow Baseball PhD Anthony Lorenzo (who has also visited all 30 current Major League Ball Parks).  You’ll hear how Anthony found the ultimate prize during a baseball road trip to Baltimore.

Then Ed will interview singer and song writer, Jason Siemer.  Jason’s first job was with the Orioles at the age of 21.  In his spare time, he wrote the Oriole ballad, A World of Orioles Baseball.   Imagine Jason playing this song to his boss who then instructed him to put the song to video in time to be played on the Oriole Park Jumbotron for opening day.

Can the Professor Repeat?

This week is Astros week with our podcast featuring the Houston Astros being released on Friday, September 2nd.  Ed Kasputis will be interviewing Timothy De Block from crawfishboxes.com and James Yasko from astroscounty.com about their beloved Astros.

On another note, with 30 days left in the regular season, Professor Bruce Bukiet from the New Jersey Institute of Technology is leading in our predictions contest.  If the season would end today, 6 of Bukiet’s 8 teams would make the playoffs (Red Sox, Yankees, Tigers, Rangers, Phillies & Braves.)  Jonathan Eig and Baseball PhD’s Mark Rantala are tied for second with 5 teams that would make the playoffs today.

“The key is the American League Central.” says Ed Kasputis, Creative Director of Baseball PhD. “Professor Bukiet has picked the Tigers while Jonathan Eig has chosen the White Sox.  Whoever wins the AL Central will win it all.  Catching the Professor will be as hard as catching the motivated Astros fan whose video is below.”

The Monkey & The Boy

This week is Angels‘ week with our podcast featuring the Los Angeles Angels being released on Friday, August 5th.  You can’t visit Angel Stadium without getting to know the Rally Monkey who debuted on June 6, 2000 when the Angels were trailing the Giants, 5 – 4 in the bottom of the ninth.

Two video board operators, Dean Fraulino and Jaysen Humes, took a clip of a monkey jumping around from the 1994 Jim Carrey movie comedy Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and superimposed the words “RALLY MONKEY!” on top of it.  The Angels scored two runs and won the game.  The rest is history.

And then last week, Red Sox ace Josh Beckett did his Angel imitation with a random act of kindness.  He gave 10 year old Red Sox fan, Dylan Sylvia a souvenir to remember.  We’ll talk about both the monkey and the boy during our next podcast.
