Episode 23: Home Run Baker!

This week on “This Week in 1920s Baseball,” Sweetbread and Bucketfoot talk about the return to baseball of one J. Franklin “Home Run” Baker. It’s one of the most literal of all nicknames and his story is full of both triumph and tragedy. They also talk about what spring training was like in 1921 as ballplayers headed to warmer climates to smoke fewer cigars and hike mountains to get into fighting shape. They also hit you with the history of the Yankees and a hot update about centerfielder George Maisel that everyone was waiting for. All this and more on “This Week in 1920s Baseball!”
