Baseball and BBQ Episode #101: Field of Dreams Baseball Talk, Andrea Williams, Author of Baseball's Leading Lady, and Joey Machado from Blues Hog BBQ

Baseball and BBQ

 Episode 101 is overloaded with incredible guests and wonderful discussions.MLB at Field of Dreams Game was a huge success and we were fortunate to speak with three extremely dedicated baseball fans who made the trek to Dyersville, Iowa to witness this highly anticipated game.  Join us as we welcome previous show guest, Brian LoPinto, as well as first timers to the show, Dan Malley and Aaron Nelsen.  They give us their first-hand impressions and experiences.  Find out what it was like to be at the game, the types of food served, and even how much these three fans paid for this unique experience which all of them said was well worth it. Andrea Williams admits that prior to getting a job in marketing and development at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Missouri she knew nothing regarding Effa Manley, the subject of her wonderful book, Baseball's Leading Lady:  Effa Manley and the Rise and Fall of the Negro Leagues.  However, once she heard about this wonderful woman who is the only woman inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, she knew she needed to learn more and her many hours of research and writing are her gift to us.  Effa ran the Newark Eagles with her husband, Abe Manley, from 1935 to 1948.  Andrea provides us with a look at the life of someone who was not about to let skin color or gender stop her from doing what she wanted to do and helping those she needed to help.  Effa Manley's story inspired Andrea, and the stories in this book will hopefully inspire you as much they did us.Joey Machado is excellent at marketing and that excellence is being felt throughout the barbecue community.  His passion for the products he represents has always shone through and that continues as he works with Blues Hog BBQ and Gateway Drum Smokers.  He is extremely entertaining and frankly did not even need us to ask him more than one question as he has a lot to say, and we are the beneficiaries as we get to learn from someone who has been a blessing for the barbecue industry.  Enjoy part one and look forward to part two.We conclude the show with the beautiful song, "Baseball Always Brings You Home" from the musician, Dave Dresser and the poet, Shel Krakofsky.We recommend you go to Fifth & Cherry, https://fifthandcherry.com for wonderful cutting boards and http://www.baseballbbq.com for grill tools and clothing for barbecue and baseball fans and the Pandemic Baseball Book Club, https://www.pbbclub.com  to find many of the wonderful books we have featured as well as some additional swag.We truly appreciate our listeners and hope that all of you are staying safe.If you would like to contact the show, we would love to hear from you.Call the show - (516) 855-8214Facebook - baseball and bbqEmail - baseballandbbq@gmail.comTwitter - @baseballandbbqInstagram - baseballandbarbecueYouTube - baseball and bbqWebsite - https://baseballandbbq.weebly.com

Andrea Williams on Effa Manley and the Negro Leagues

CUNY TV's Bob Herbert's Op-Ed.TV

The general, almost universal feeling now, is that it was a good thing when Jackie Robinson broke the Major League color barrier in 1947. However, there were unintended consequences, which have been mostly lost in the unforgiving haze of history. Bob talks about those consequences with guest Andrea Williams, author of the new book, “Baseball’s Leading Lady: Effa Manley and the Rise and Fall of the Negro Leagues.”
