On the Air in Canada

Apparently, Canadians like baseball. I was interviewed by the CBC last week (the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is the rough equivalent to NPR in the States), from the KQED studios in San Francisco.

As soon as the spot aired over the weekend, traffic to The Baseball Codes blog tripled, and then some—and hasn’t let up. What’s this country doing with only one big league team?

Hear my conversation with Michael Enright here. (It can be found in hour 2 of the program.)

Thanks, Canada.

In Studio at KNBR 1050

Michael and I spent a half-hour in the KNBR 1050 studios with Damon Bruce yesterday, where we primarily discussed the topic of the day: Whether or not the Giants should have responded to either of the Dodgers’ Code violations over the weekend.

Things we learned: Damon stands when doing his broadcast, and although he hasn’t yet read the book, he really likes the cover.

Listen to the third hour of the program here. We’re on in the second half.

KNBR 1050 on Monday

Michael and I will be heading into KNBR’s San Francisco studio Monday afternoon to spend a half-hour with Damon Bruce, from 2:30 – 3 p.m. (If you’re in the Bay Area, head to 1050 on your AM dial for all the Code talk you can handle.)

KNBR and the Unwritten Rules

KNBR’s Mychael Urban (who also reports for Comcast SportsNet Bay Area) will be introducing to his Giants pre-game show a segment on the unwritten rules, using for inspiration The Baseball Codes. The show is on the air right now; the segment will begin at about 5:30 p.m., and will reference the book with copious regularity.

I’ll be on the show before the game tomorrow, at about 11:30 a.m., 680 on your Bay Area AM radio dial.

KTCT Today

If you’re in the Bay Area and interested in such things, I’ll be on KTCT (1050 on your AM dial) with Damon Bruce today, at or about 12:30 p.m., from AT&T Park in advance of the Giants home opener.

We’re Huge on NPR

There must be something about the unwritten rules that makes this book appeal to stations whose listeners love Terry Gross even more than WFAN listeners loved Mike and the Mad Dog. Perhaps it’s the sociological bent. Or maybe they just dig Nolan Ryan.

Either way, I was on WNPR in Connecticut this afternoon for a delightful chat with Patrick Skahill, a guy who had clearly read (and, no less important, appreciated) The Baseball Codes.

You can find it here. My segment begins at the 16:30 mark.  (For my previous NPR appearance, in Albany, NY, go here.)
