The 6th episode of the California Republic of Baseball Podcast (@CRBpodcast) has been uploaded.  I hope you all will take some time to listen in and reach out to us with any feedback or questions for Tommy D, Producer Matt, or I.  This week we touched on the MLB All Star Game Ballot, as always Tommy D talked about his Yankees, and I reminisced about one of my Favorite baseball memories involving the memorable John Kruk.

John Kruk is one of my favorite all-time baseball players. He was down to Earth, a fun player to watch, and just an all around great baseball guy. I still love listening to what he has to add to Baseball Tonight on ESPN. It was a pleasure to be able to recall his at bat against Randy Johnson at the 1993 MLB All Star Game at Camden Yards.  I remember begging my sister to get us tickets to the game, but unfortunately it was a tough ticket to come by. I still remember watching the Kruk v. Johnson at bat intently from our TV at home. At bats like that are definitely devoid from All Star Games now.
