On this episode we review possibility the greatest baseball film ever made, Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch. Can a dog not only play baseball, but be named World Series MVP for making one good play at first base? Anything is possible in the ABCU (Air Bud Cinematic Universe). This episode also includes reviews of the film by Sam’s kids, a history lesson about pets and baseball, and chat about the recent arbitration deadline.
Sadly there was a technical issue with Sam and Rozi’s recording that means it’s got a little buzz on it. This is just a one-off and we’ll be back to normal with high quality audio on the next episode.

In our second episode we discuss the 1989 film Major League, which none of us had seen before! We recorded this on New Year's Eve, so it's also our New Year party. Also discussed are bullpen carts, the Toronto Blue Jays' recent signings, mascots and the Yankees being squares. Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off a podcast about baseball movies than to discuss the 1992 classic A League of Their Own? Also discussed: nasty knuckleballs, harmonicas, the Blue Jays signing Bartolo Colon, and a clarification on bunting and bundt cake. Also contains spoilers for Top Gun.
This episode is dedicated to the memory of A League of Their Own’s Director, Penny Marshall, who died aged 75 between us recording this episode and us putting it out.
