LOD Podcast, Episode 64: Reflecting on Decades in the Game with Bobby Simmons

 

In Episode 64 of the Legends on Deck Podcast, Brian Koss was back in the captain’s chair along with David Conde.  We were joined by Bobby Simmons, former player and scout with the Houston Astros. Bobby grew up in rural North Carolina and didn’t pick up the game of baseball until he was 11 years old.

Through hard work and dedication to the game, Bobby emerged into a stellar high school ballplayer and went on to play at the junior college level before getting drafted by the Astros in the 6th Round of the 1986 MLB Draft.  Following his minor league career, he would go on to spend the next decade scouting in the Astros system.

The LOD Team discusses a wide variety of topics with Simmons including his perspective on how the game has changed and evolved over the past few decades.  Years later, Bobby remains active in the game, coaching adult travel baseball.
