Joining us in the studio:
Dave Coleman brings his lifelong love of baseball to HUSH to discuss The Soul of Baseball: A Road Trip Through Buck O’Neil’s America by Joe Posnanski. We chat about the positive influence of Buck O’Neil’s life on other people, O’Neil’s passion for promoting the Negro Leagues, Posnanski’s skill and talent as a storyteller and writer, and how talking about baseball connects us all.
Dave said, “There is an old saying about sports, ‘sports build a person’s character.’ I agree with that statement, but want to take a step further and say that sports not only builds a person’s character, it also reveals one’s character. As Posnanski writes about his travels with O’Neil, each page is another lesson in a life well lived.”
