The HOVG Podcast: Tom Tsuchiya


This week, Shawn Anderson and Lou Olsen are joined by Tom Tsuchiya.

Hoping to bring some culture to the podcast, the sculptor talks to the boys about his gig creating the Hall of Fame plaques, shares his favorite and most difficult creations and explains how it is possible to park a car on the Pete Rose statue outside Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.

And, yeah, Shawn and Lou do their best to convince Tom to add mustaches to all the plaques in Cooperstown.
