Bizball Radio

Welcome to another edition of Bizball Radio

This week we focus entirely on baseball and its history.

Our exclusive interview this week is with Official MLB Historian John Thorn.

Topics for the Thorn interview include origins of baseball, including who came up with 9 men on a team, and who came up with 90 feet between the bases. We delve into stick and ball games that date back to the early Egyptians and Mayans.

But, the most interesting (and possibly controversial) will be Thorn's comments on Babe Ruth. If you think that Babe could stand up to today's players, take a listen to what Thorn has to say.
