Ron LeFlore is the only player to have lead both leagues in stolen bases. Until this week that was about all we really knew about him. Now, we know alot more. He was discovered while playing in a prison baseball league, because, well, he was in jail. Form the exercise yard to Tiger Stadium LeFlore went on to become an All Star but he could not escape his old life. Hear the whole story or watch the ABC made for tv movie One In A Million. Probably easier to listen to the pod to be honest. Plus, 1988 Fleer s the weapon of choice for this week’s Wax Pack Heroes.

We watched The Quad a show on BET. We chose it because it reminded of us of our time in college, including community college. This show had a lot of drama a mom who hits her daughter and then sleeps with a dead mans wife. They also burn down a library and we want to let everyone know burn your books!
