Our trio of lifer baseball fans who have opined publicly for three decades discuss the Orioles, Major League Baseball and how to get the good people of Baltimore back to Camden Yards. Allen McCallum joined Don Mohler and Nestor Aparicio at El Guapo on the Maryland Crab Cake Tour presented by The Maryland Lottery less than an hour after the MLB lockout ended. This one was raw.
Cheryl Bost joined us earlier this year in a lengthy discussion about Kirwan and Annapolis and now returns from the Maryland State Education Association to update us about the fluid state of education and how we're going to do this in the fall here in The Free State – county by county.
Back in August 2016, the Severna Park native and longtime rock and roll drummer talked about coming to an Orioles game to bring awareness to his brother Jim's MSA (Multiple System Atrophy) diagnosis. This is an incredible story with Morgan State roots and pays tribute to an incredible local life we lost recently.
True fact: Orioles pitcher Rick Sutcliffe and the world's most legendary man were close friends. Murray came to Camden Yards a lot in the early days and hung out in the clubhouse. He was from Chicago. Nestor's name was Aparicio. The request was John Winger from the "Chicks dig me" speech in Stripes. We were mutts...
The picture is from October 1996 at the Indianapolis airport when Nestor ran into the Governor with Ricig's Bob Irsay dummy on a stick. The conversation is Part Two of a spicy chat with John Moag and Schaefer at The Barn to kickoff the Ravens' second season on 33rd Street at Memorial Stadium.
We lost the legendary Tommy Lasorda on Friday. Back in 2002, the Dodgers Hall of Famer joined Nestor here in Baltimore to talk about the changing state of baseball after chicks dug the long ball and the sport was drowning in PEDs.
Over the years, the local sports and rock and roll connection of Nestor and Hootie And The Blowfish has led to several visits from the boys from South Carolina via the D.C. burbs. It gives him a chance to crush them about the Redskins.
