Ep. 43 – Baseball Spotlight Part IV – Backyard Baseball 2001

I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that this is an absolutely fantastic episode. The bad is that it is the final in the Baseball Spotlight series for 2020. We are wrapping up the series in the most appropriate way possible, and that is by covering Backyard Baseball 2001 for Windows and Mac.

Joined by newcomer and golden son of Detroit Alex Bernard, Conner and previous guest / childhood best friend Eddie Martin discuss the phenomenon that was the 2nd installment in the Backyard Baseball series. On this episode our ballplayers discuss the eclectic cast of character both pro and backyard that populate the game, how cool it was to be able to play with our favorite pro players as kids, and how this game took each of our love for the game to new heights. Don’t worry, we shout the legendary announcement team that is Sunny Day and Vinnie the Gooch.
