As Major League Baseball nears the end of the regular season, one slugger reached a milestone while another is still in pursuit. For this week’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we covered Albert Pujols hitting his 700th career home run and Aaron Judge chasing his 61st of the season.
Among our other topics: Will Tony La Russa return to manage the Chicago White Sox next season? Don Mattingly will not return to the Miami Marlins. And what can MLB do to boost offense in the sport?
If you missed it, since it occurred late Friday night and was on Apple TV+ rather than ESPN, Fox, or MLB Network (although MLBN surely cut in live), here is Pujols hitting career home run No. 700, the fourth-highest total in baseball history.
You can stream The WISE Guys from 3 to 6 p.m. ET at wisesportsradio.com (courtesy of Mars Hill University) or the TuneIn app. Locally in the Asheville area, dial up 1310 or 970 AM and 102.9 FM. And thanks to Blue Mountain Pizza (a favorite when I used to live nearby) for sponsoring this week’s segment.
