190 - The Jason Lane Phenomenon: Every Pitcher Tells a Story
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Former Houston Astro Jason Lane is one of 21 pitchers in MLB history that have pitched or pitched at least 10 innings in the big leagues with a career ERA below 1.00. The list includes both Negro League players and players that played in the National Association (1871-75).

We are looking at the background and history for all 21 players in this episode -- stories that include unfortunate injuries, bad luck, military service, returns home and other fates.

Oh, believe it or not, one of the 21 players is a Baseball Hall of Fame inductee!

In Part 2, Rex leads a review and discussion about the new motion picture, "Dune, Part Two."

Errata: The correct name of the Negro League baseball database is Seamheads.com.
