Since the beginning of Legends on Deck, we have come up with different ways to share the stories of minor league baseball. Everything from “Prospects on Deck“, to reading in their own words about their journey in “From A Players Eyes“, to even giving the players wives a chance to have their voices heard in “Our View From Home“.
Now we have added, “Legends on Deck: The Podcast“.
The show is hosted by our Co-Founder John Ginder and one of our new and exciting contributing writers Mike Duda. The idea behind the show is to just give another platform to share the stories and all that is going on in minor league baseball which is essentially the backbone to the sport.
In the coming episodes we will be having reports on location as we travel through the Grapefruit League, discussion of spring training, as well as having different guests on the show.
