Episode 13: Baseball HOF’s Jon Shestakofsky On Induction Weekend FAQs And Much More!

With the Yankees celebrating the 20th anniversary of the famed 1998 squad this weekend at the Stadium, I thought it would be rather timely to talk with our friends in beautiful Cooperstown, New York. After all, there are two core members of that team who will undoubtedly be first ballot Hall of Famers; Mariano Rivera is up for induction in 2019 and Derek Jeter follows in 2020.

Jon Shestakofsky is the Vice President of Communications and Education for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. He does a great job here of filling you in on everything you need to know for an Induction Weekend upstate. Plus, Jon sheds some light on current Yankees who are represented in the Hall’s exhibits, how the HOF obtains memorabilia and what it was like to watch the game’s biggest rivalry from the perspective of the Nation; Shestakofsky came to the Hall from the Red Sox organization, where he worked parts of nine postseasons and most recently served as Manager of Media Relations and Baseball Information for the team.

Thank you to Jon for giving us so much time and another great episode – hope you feel the same way. If you do, be sure to rate/review/subscribe wherever you get us. Thanks!

Episode 12: YES Network’s Jack Curry On Covering The Yankees For TV And More!

Really excited about this week’s episode as I’m joined by someone who I’ve had on my radio show and whose work I’m a big fan of: YES Network in-studio analyst, reporter and contributor Jack Curry. For those who don’t know, Curry covered the Yankees for decades with the New York Times, then transitioned to TV full-time in 2010. We talk about that transition, especially as it relates to the trade deadline, along with a number of other topics; writing a book with Derek Jeter and now David Cone, the Jeter/Aaron Judge comparisons, a typical day’s itinerary and much more.

I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed recording it, and if you do, be sure to rate/review/subscribe wherever you’re finding us. Thanks and go Yankees!
