“Gleeman and The Geek”: Draft Talk and Scouting Sano

2 Comments

I do a weekly podcast called “Gleeman and The Geek” but never actually link to it here because … well, the show is mostly about the Minnesota Twins.

This week’s episode has the usual Twins talk, but also includes a whole bunch of discussion about tonight’s MLB draft and a special guest with a first-hand scouting report on stud prospect Miguel Sano.

I figured it might be of more interest to the average (or at least non-Twins fan) HBT reader than a usual episode, so give it a listen:

According to former major leaguer and current broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar will be calling play-by-play of Monday night’s game against the Padres for the Rockies. The broadcast will be on AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain Region.

Cavnar will be at least the third woman to call televised play-by-play for a major league team, joining Gayle Gardner (Rockies, 1993) and Suzyn Waldman (Yankees, mid-1990’s).

Broadcasting remains largely the domain of white men, so it’s always good when women and people of color are able to have a seat in the broadcasting booth.
