Baseball and BBQ Episode #69 - '24' Author John Shea and Doug Scheiding of Rogue Cookers

Baseball and BBQ

Just when you thought the show couldn't get any better, episode 69 comes along with two amazing guests.John Shea had the enviable task of working with, perhaps the greatest baseball player ever, Willie Mays, as they wrote, 24: Life Stories and Lessons from the Say Hey Kid.  The book is filled with wonderful stories and thoughts from the mind of an American icon, treasure, and hero.  Willie Mays, was a major-league center fielder for 22 seasons with the New York Giants, San Francisco Giants, and New York Mets, as well as playing for the Birmingham Black Barons in the Negro Leagues.  He hit 660 home runs, collected 3,283 hits, stole 338 bases, earned 12 Gold Glove Awards, played in 24 All-Star Games, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1979.  Not every author could handle the daunting task of working with an icon whose life's work could fill volumes, but Shea, an award-winning national baseball writer at the San Francisco Chronicle and author of four baseball books was more than able to handle the challenge. The interview merely scratches the surface of an amazing book you will be pleased to add to your collection.Doug Scheiding is a true renaissance man. For our devoted listeners who keep track of these things, he is the first rocket scientist we have had as a guest. To the barbecue world, he is a wearer of many hats, including pitmaster of the award winning competition barbecue team, Rogue Cookers, embedded correspondent on The BBQ Central Show, Traeger Pellet Grills representative, and Head Country brand ambassador. He is also an avid Chicago Cubs fan and quite a knowledgeable baseball fan. In addition to all of that, he is just one of the nicest guys, in barbecue or out, that you would ever want to meet. We are so lucky and pleased to bring you part one of this wonderful conversation.We once again conclude the show with the beautiful song, "Baseball Always Brings You Home" from Dave Dresser and Shel Krakofsky.Don't forget to go to http://www.baseballbbq.com for grill tools and clothing for barbecue and baseball fans.Please know how much we appreciate our listeners.  We hope that all of you are staying safe.If you would like to contact the show, we would love to hear from youCall the show - (516) 855-8214Email - baseballandbbq@gmail.comTwitter - @baseballandbbqInstagram - baseballandbarbecueFacebook - Baseball and BBQYouTube - baseball and bbqWebsite - https//baseballandbbq.weebly.com
