The HOVG Podcast: David Raymond

This week, Shawn Anderson and Lou Olsen are joined by the original Phillie Phanatic, David Raymond.

The self-proclaimed Emperor of Fun tells the boys about his years as the Philadelphia Phillies mascot, whether or not guys like Al Schacht, Max Patkin and Ted Giannoulas should be in baseball’s Hall of Fame, how the Mascot Hall of Fame came about and what it takes to be a successful entertainer.
