Yes! Superb Concept from a Skilled and Creative Baseball Writer and Insider
I've enjoyed C. Trent's columns in the Cincinnati Equirier and his CTR and Reds Beat Podcats. What a great idea for a show here as each and every minor league ballplayer has a story. Excited about forthcoming shows.
Baseball the way it should be told
Baseball is not about highlight reals and gifs. It's about relationships, resilience, and routines. C. Trent's podcast gives it the attention, time, and love required to tell baseball's story right.
Just loved the first episode of Great American Dream. Wonderful storytelling on Rosecrans part. Nice production as well. It pulls you in and leaves you ready for more. I've grown up going to Jackie Robinson stadium on City Island in Daytona Beach and can't wait to follow Shed Long's story on the field and through the podcast!
