Episode 30: Live from Cooperstown

We bring you episode 30 with a special group of guests live from Cooperstown, New York. It’s a town as timeless as the game of baseball. Me and the three guys I traveled with have a round-table discussion this week about our experience at the 2019 National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction. We’ll give you the do’s, the don’ts and the tips as we prepare for a second trip next year in anticipation of Derek Jeter’s election.

A big thank you to Rob Valenti, Anthony Restaino and his father Anthony Sr. for hopping on the podcast from our backyard deck at the AirBnB we rented. It was a great trip to the HOF (and keep in mind, this was BEFORE we met Mariano Rivera) and you’ll hear why during the episode.

As always, thank you for rating/reviewing/subscribing – it helps a lot.

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.

And as always, thank you for rating/reviewing/subscribing!

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 05: Best Time To Buy On StubHub, Levi’s Merch, Baltimore Tips

Lots of tips and knowledge in episode 05 of the Pinstripe Lanes Podcast. First, I’ll fill you in on the Levi’s pop-up shop that took place in the Great Hall of the Stadium over Memorial Day Weekend and how using your Mastercard could have not only saved you money there, but how it can also still save you money in other parts of the ballpark. Plus, after extensive research, I’ll let you know the best time to buy tickets on StubHub prior to a home game. And finally, if you’re headed to Baltimore this weekend to check out the Yankees at Camden Yards, stick around until the end! I have great pre-and-post game recommendations for you along with an in-game tip on buying beer.
