Talking Tony La Russa, baseball’s no-hitters, and Houston Astros with 103.7 The Game’s Clint Domingue

Before the 2021 Major League Baseball season began, Clint Domingue asked me to be on his 103.7 The Game radio show. But my phone wasn’t cooperating and I couldn’t call in. So I wasn’t sure we’d talk again until maybe the All-Star break or the postseason.

Fortunately, Clint wanted to talk this weekend and there were plenty of topics to discuss, including Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa acting like a curmudgeon, the surprising number of no-hitters being thrown, and the surge of the Houston Astros (the local MLB team for the Acadiana region).

He works hard and has a great radio voice so I hope he continues to trend upward with his radio career. I’m grateful he invited me on his show.
