Episode 25: Seth Everett on MLB.com’s Early Days, Baseball’s Current Challenges And More

It’s been a fun week! I took a last-second trip to Baltimore on Monday to see the Yankees’ comeback win against the Orioles. Now, as we publish our new episode, we can celebrate a sweep heading in to the holiday weekend. The Yanks will play a 3-game series in Kansas City against the Royals.

Of course I’ll recap the trip, but the big news on the podcast this week is our guest: sports reporter/host Seth Everett. His career has lasted nearly 25 years and spanned everything from TV (ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight”) to radio (Westwood One’s Olympics coverage) to the web (Forbes, MLB.com). We’ll talk about those early days of MLB’s online platform (when, I also first met him), the current challenges facing baseball and much more.

Seth is also the host of two podcasts, “Sports With Friends” and “Hall Of Justice.” Follow him on Twitter @Seth_Everett.

Episode 24: SeatGeek, New Bars, 5Ks, Rain Delays Oh My!

Yours truly flying solo for episode 24 with a plethora of information in an abbreviated episode. I’ll tell you what it was like in the ballpark Monday for the rain delay/postponement of the game (and how I knew they weren’t playing), my new go-to bar on River Ave., why I bought from SeatGeek the other night and much more!

Also – a quick chat about the fantastic Damon Runyon Cancer Research 5K in Yankee Stadium last weekend. I ran it again this year and had a blast while of course celebrating a great cause.

As always, thank you for rating/reviewing/subscribing and let’s go Yankees!

Episode 23: Shaun Clancy, Owner Of Foley’s NY!

Any podcast that is taped in your favorite bar, interviewing the guy who owns the bar, while you’re drinking a pint from Bronx Brewery… is a good podcast!

Our string of fantastic guests continues this week with Shaun Clancy. He’s originally from Ireland, and opened Foley’s (18 West 33rd Street, between 5th/6th) 15 years ago. It’s billed as “An Irish Bar with a Baseball Attitude.” Named for sportswriter Red Foley, the establishment boasts one of baseball’s largest memorabilia collections outside of Cooperstown. There are 3900 signed balls in the bar, including one Clancy claims is his “holy grail” (listen to the podcast to find out the signature).

Fun fact: It’s also home to the “Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame.” Clancy explains on the episode how that came to be.

Foley’s is a great place to watch any game, especially when the Yankees are on. It’s a great establishment, and you’ll learn why as you hear Shaun talk about his vision for the business, why he recognizes the unsung heroes of baseball and his inspiration behind all of the charity work done at the bar.

Foley’s is open 11a-2a daily and the kitchen stays open relatively late most nights. Find them on social media @FoleyNY and if you pop in, find Shaun and say hello.

Episode 22: Rick Cerrone On Baseball Digest And Great Yankee Stories

In between a story or two about me spending 24 hours in Las Vegas this week, we welcome BACK on to the Pinstripe Lanes Podcast Rick Cerrone. Rick’s career in sports and media spans over four decades. He currently serves as the Editor-In-Chief for the legendary publication Baseball Digest.

Ed note: We taped this last week; the new edition that we speak of in this week’s episode is available now!

Of course, Rick also served as the Senior Director of Media Relations for the New York Yankees from 1996-2006. He shares a few stories from those days, including working with Derek Jeter, assisting in the planning of new Yankee Stadium and a few celebrities/public figures he encountered during his time in the Bronx.
