Legendary Interviews

Pete Rose Hit King Collection

We had some LEGENDS stop by the Dugout this year for some great conversations.

When we asked those in the Dugout what their most memorable moment of 2020 was an overwhelming majority of you responded with having Pete Rose, The Hit King, on to offer live commentary during Game 3 of the World Series. He was so generous of his time (his second interview with us this year - click here to watch his first) chatting for nearly two hours and offering insight like only a legend like himself could. 

HOF catcher Pudge Rodriguez hopped in the Dugout to talk about his baseball career and what he's involved with outside of the sport.

Mariano Rivera Collection

It was so awesome getting to sit down with Mariano Rivera! His foundation is doing amazing work and we're proud to be able to play a tiny part in helping his cause! (Watch the full interview

David Mickey Evans (DME), the writer, director, and narrator of one of the most iconic baseball movies of all time, The Sandlot, was one of our first guests! Plus, check out our bonus content with DME where he tells us 10 Mind Blowing Facts You Didn't Know About The Sandlot.
