HOVG Podcast: 2017 Top Ten Episodes (Part One)


What were the ten most listened to Hall of Very Good Podcast episodes from 2017? It’s funny you should ask.

Here are five of them!

10. Rob Deer (Episode 53)
Former slugger Rob “Rooster” Deer joins the boys to talk about his friendship with Robin Yount, his love for Milwaukee (and why he believes he was allowed to leave the Brewers via free agency), playing in Japan and that one special night he caught the eye of The Material Girl.


9. Greg Pryor (Episode 77)
Former Chicago White Sox shortstop Greg Pryor joins the boys to talk about Disco Demolition Night and the events of July 12, 1979, the day he made Jimmy Piersall go crazy, describes what it was like being part of the circus surrounding Bo Jackson in 1986 and spills the beans on what he thinks is the worst baseball movie ever.


8. Todd Radom (Episode 58)
Graphic design extraordinaire Todd Radom joins the boys to talk all about how he got his start in the business, why that Cleveland Browns logo he created means so much to him, that time he witnessed a brawl at Yankee Stadium, working with Ice Cube on his new basketball league and spending part of his Christmas with the Clintons. Yes…THOSE Clintons.


7. Timothy Busfield (Episode 63)
Famed actor/director Timothy Busfield joins the boys to talk about his beloved Detroit Tigers chances this upcoming season, working with Kevin Costner, filming with Ken Griffey Jr., kicking it with Hall of Famer Al Kaline, trying out for the Kansas City Royals (true story) and why, perhaps, Ryan Gosling longs to be him.


6. The First Lady of Baseball (Minisode)
20 years ago, Ila Borders broke through baseball’s “glass ceiling” when she appeared in a game for the St. Paul Saints. From Mick Veeck to (yes) Marge Schott, her journey was an interesting one.
