This week on the podcast we look back at the Dodgers home opener, which was the first time they played in front of fans at Dodger Stadium. That means we talk about the memorable ring ceremony, for the pomp and circumstance, getting many baseball greats to record into videos, and of course Bronson Arroyo singing Wonderwall.

Also this week on the podcast, we talk about the important stuff, like Dodgers starting pitching, the offense humming while Cody Bellinger and Mookie Betts, and talk movie theater popcorn and rate baseball movies.

If you have any questions for a future episode, please email, or tweet us at @ericstephen or @jacobburch. Thanks as always to producer Brian Salvatore for all his hard work behind the scenes.

Dodgers rewind

We look back at former Brooklyn outfielder George “Shotgun” Shuba, who was a teammate of Jackie Robinson in the majors and minors and whose handshake at home plate during Robinson’s first minor league game with Montreal will be remembered in statue form beginning this weekend in Youngstown.
