Join me on Tuesday November 23rd at 10PM ET for THIS CALL TO THE BULLPEN on BLOG TALK RADIO. My guest will be Doug Gladstone, author of the book “A Bitter Cup of Coffee, How MLB and The Players Association Threw 874 Retirees a Curve and former Mets outfielder George “The Stork” Theodore.

We will discuss MLB and the MLB Players Association not vesting players who played in the big leagues prior to 1980 to pension and medical benefits given to players now who play just one game in the big leagues. George Theodore is just one of those players affected by this injustice.

I’ll be discussing this issue with Doug and George and also talk to Theodore about his days with the NY Mets.

If you can’t join us live, you can always here the show on our show page on Blog Talk Radio or right here on Kranepool Society (lower right side bar) or download the show on iTunes.

  1. A game I will never forget…or actually a play I will never forget…sitting in the left field bleachers, at the Holy Land (Shea) watching Rusty Staub run all the way from right field as Han & Theodore lay motionless on the ground, and Ralph Garr rounds the bases.

  2. I wound up muting the TV and turning off my radio in the background. That was a hell of a listen for a ton of reasons.
    Kranepool ~ I was sitting behind 1st base/Mezz in 1976 against the Giants. Ed Kranepool hit a HR that, for me, still hasn’t come down. We won that game 5-2 thanks to Steady Eddie’s 3 run jack!
    Have a great Holiday!
