We have a Yankee of a podcast for you.  The tradition plus the payroll.  Our PhD Committee talks about this franchise’s glorious past (and future).  Ed interviews Canadians Mike and Donna Smolders about their Yankee experience visiting Boston, New York City and Cooperstown.  Craig Muder fills us in on the 2011 Hall of Fame weekend from Cooperstown.  Mr. Sports Travel aka Joe Connor teaches us the 5 best baseball places to explore in NYC.  We then hail a cab and head to LaGuardia.  Next week it’s Dodger Blue and the bankruptcy saga of their owners.  Say it ain’t so Vin Scully.  Say it ain’t so.

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.
