This week, Shawn Anderson and Lou Olsen talk to actor (and former Houston Astros scout!) Lew Temple.
In the first part of what ends up being a spectacular baseball discussion, Lew tells the boys about his days as a Houston Astros scout, the team drafting Craig Biggio, passing on Derek Jeter and shares his thoughts on steroids.
Also, Lew drops some nuggets about his friendship with Rob Zombie and, naturally, how he ended up with greatest mustache on “The Walking Dead”.
