PRODcast 61: Roger Maris' Record That Should Probably Still Be A Record

We are SUPER-STOKED about this episode. You'll see why in a minute.

1. THE OPEN. The thing at the beginning.

2. THE EMAILS. Where we read the rantings of lunatics to you.

3. THE MUSICAL AND THE HUMAN GUEST ARE ONE: Ben Sharp of CLOUDKICKER. (This is why we're stoked.)

4. THE BASEBALL PART

The playoff matchups are taking shape.

RIP Manny Machado D;

Yasiel murdered a baseball in cold blood.

5. THE GOODBYE.


PRODcast 60: Jon Rauch's Seriously Subpar Shattoos & Burgeoning Bonanza of Back Hair

OH. HEY, BACK HAIR.

It would appear that only six MLB players have ever worn #60 on purpose, and they are: Scott Schoenweis (12 years), Dave Heaverlo (7 years), Manny Corpas (7 years), Rauch (5 years), Todd Coffey (5 years) Rocky Biddle (5 years) … a few at 4 and 3, but probably on accident.

Dick Allen (who wore the number in 1977 as a member of the A’s) is the career bWAR leader amongst #60s, with 58.74. Former Giant Matt Williams wore #60 in 1987. No baseball player will ever hit 60 home runs again*.

*Prolly.
