Ep. 105 - First Home Run Ball Exchange Rates and Other Tall Tales
Show Notes Chapter Markers

This week, Andrew, Craig and Rex riff on the Astros' amazing two immaculate inning game, Jeremy Pena's injury and his replacements, the price for a first MLB home run ball, squabbles among Orioles' team owners, and the line-up for this week's Glastonbury festival. We closed by going "off the rails" in the "Check It Out" segment.

Errata: The Astros acquired Phil Maton last year in the Myles Straw trade with Cleveland. Phil Neikro's 6 wild pitch game was August 4, 1979. Yuli's brother is Lourdes. He plays for Toronto. There have been 23 official perfect games, not 16. The Nashville NHL team is the Predators - Craig got it right the first time. The Tampa ballpark lease expires in after the 2027 season. Oakland's expires in after the 2024 season. It's Donald T. Sterling.

Check It Out:
Andrew recommends R. F. Kuang's "The Poppy War" (Harper Voyager 2018)
Craig recommends the latest from Steve Earle & the Dukes; a Jerry Jeff Walker tribute album titled "Jerry Jeff," released May 27 on New West.
Rex recommends the Planet of the Apes reboot trilogy released 2011-17.
