82 - Rube Waddell Would Make A Hell of a Movie w/ Prof. Alan H. Levy (Jan. 2022)
Show Notes

Life got in the way this week so we reached back into the archives for this interesting interview with Prof. Levy in January 2022. Here are the show notes from that episode:

This week we discuss Hall of Fame southpaw, Rube Waddell with his biographer, Professor Alan Levy. Levy, a professor of history at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania, published, "Rube Waddell: The Zany, Brilliant Life of a Strikeout Artist" in 2000. Waddell was not only one of baseball's most talented pitchers in the first decade of the last century -- he stands out as one of the most colorful and unpredictable personalities as well. Join us for this exciting interview about one of baseball's most interesting personalities.

Errata: In 1901, they were the Chicago Orphans, not the Chicago Cubs, as we discussed in Episode 77.
