The 2020 Major League Baseball season is set to begin in three days and one team doesn’t know where it will play its home games this year. Seriously.
On this week’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we discuss the Toronto Blue Jays not being allowed to play in Canada because of COVID-19 travel concerns, Yasiel Puig no longer playing for the Atlanta Braves, and storylines to watch for the 2020 season.
I mentioned the Los Angeles Dodgers releasing a message from players supporting Black Lives Matter. Every other MLB team might produce something similar:
Also, pro tip for anybody going on the radio: Make sure you know how to pronounce the names of players you may be talking about! I just assumed Chicago White Sox rookie Luis Robert’s name was pronounced “Loo-eee Row-BEAR,” but it turns out “Loo-is RAW-bert” is correct! Just like it’s spelled!
You can listen to The WISE Guys from 3 to 6 p.m. ET streaming on wisesportsradio.com or the TuneIn app. Locally in the Asheville area, dial up 1310 or 970 AM and 102.9 FM.
Thanks to WISE Sports Radio for allowing me to post this on my site, along with Mars Hill University (which sponsors the stream) and Vistanet for sponsoring my MLB segment.
