Great addition to an aready awesome website!

I’ve followed CCS for five or six years and I have participated in the UEFL for the past three years, so I know that Gil does a great job on everything he puts his hand to. This podcast is no different as evidenced by the first episode with retired MLB umpire Bob Davidson. I can’t wait for more episodes to come!

Balking Bob

I really enjoyed this interview with Bob Davidson. I definitely was not a fan of his during his career but after listening to his stories and getting a little perspective of what it’s like to work your way up to the big leagues I have to say I was very surprised. Sounds like a great guy with an awesome sense of humor and not the grumpy, balk calling, quick hook umpire he had the reputation for.
Great interview. Looking forward to more like this!
