Peter King’s Baseball Passion is Stronger Than Ever

The Grapefruit League has begun, and Steve Carney talks about what he saw from the first game of the year.  Plus he gets into what he has seen and heard from baseball’s top prospect, Wander Franco, and we hear from the team’s 2015 first round pick Garrett Whitley on why he feels the work on the social justice front isn’t anywhere close to being done.

Steve is then joined by CBS News anchor and correspondent Peter King (@PeterKingCBS) to talk about how his passion for baseball got started, going to the Polo Grounds to watch some awful Mets teams as a kid, how he would change the Trop if he had the power, and why he feels the 2021 version of his favorite club is going to be exciting.
