Baseball is a game of tradition. It has remained largely unchanged for over 100 years, and it's easy to think that the players on the field are just as traditional as the game itself. But that couldn't be further from the truth. Today's game is filled with some of the most interesting and exciting personalities in the history of baseball. On-field, off-field and everything in between, enjoy a conversation among baseball people, and get to know the players and the game you already thought you knew.

I am an over massive baseball fan, and this podcast is absolutely fantastic! Colin gives a great all-access pass into his world of baseball. You don’t have to be just an Astros fan to be engulfed in the conversations going on.
Keep up the great work
I’ve been an Astros fan since 93’ as a young Houstonian and always wanted more inside access to the players that your podcast now allows. You’re doing a great job with your interviews and asking great questions opening up players to personal questions. I hope you interview Tony Kemp or Josh Reddick at some point on your show. They both seem to be such great personalities that don’t get the credit they deserve. Either way, I wish all of you guys the best of luck and will be praying for you and your health throughout the season. Go Astros!!
I stumbled upon this on Twitter a week before I left to Spring Training. I listened to all of the episodes on the plane to West Palm Beach. Colin does a great job showcasing the person behind the player and giving insights into his teammates and his time as a pro baseball player. Highly recommend!
