On That’s Amaury’s pod:
#1 Fourth of July is coming and that is the one day that you could always count on working an MLB game now that the season has been rescheduled for July 23rd it’s an awkward time of the year to open the season.
#2 Amongst some of the changes coming into the 2020 60 game season one of them is the Universal Designated Hitter where the National League will longer allow the pitcher to hit. Will this be a big adjustment for the pitchers and will the NL miss allowing all fielders to hit?
#3 Amaury how much will the Universal DH be a departure from the culture of the game and how much impact will it have as a change in the rules of the game.
#4 On June 15, 1963 a high kick wind up of Hall of Famer and San Francisco Giant pitcher Juan Marichal was all that the visiting Houston 45’s saw all afternoon as Marichal threw a no hitter at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.
#5 The Oakland A’s English broadcasters are considering going back to last season’s flagship station and carry all 60 games on KTRB 860. The A’s left the station last year that there was just too much right wing programming. 860 tried to appeal to the A’s and now the team might reconsider and come back.
