Honeywell Debuts And Ellen Adair Talks Baseball Movies

It was a rollercoaster week for the Tampa Bay Rays, culminating with the Major League debut of pitcher Brent Honeywell after three and a half years away and four elbow surgeries.  Hear who the right-hander credits in keeping him on course in the nearly 1,300 days between games that counted.

And actor Ellen Adair (@Ellen_Adair), host of the podcast “Take Me In To The Ballgame,” joins Steve to talk about how baseball changed for her in a pandemic, her affection for former Rays outfielder and current Phillies GM Sam Fuld, and what makes a good baseball movie!
