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).
As I said when appearing on Clint’s show last year, It’s been fun to watch him establish himself on the radio with his own show and a pro wrestling podcast. 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.
For a sport that isn’t being played and may not be played this year, Major League Baseball is still generating a lot of discussion. Unfortunately, most of that conversation is negative as team owners and players battle over salaries to be paid in a shortened season with no fans in attendance.
But that means I got to talk with an old friend, Clint Domingue on Acadiana’s 103.7 The Game, and we discussed MLB’s tendency to hurt itself in terms of promoting baseball.
