Dan Glickman returns to bring the Baseball Continuum Continuucast BACK from obscurity! And, for the first time, he has a guest, as he speaks to Rich Grisham, the Chief Marketing Officer of OOTP Developments, the creators of Out of the Park Baseball. Their latest version, OOTP 17, is now available on Steam and on the OOTP website (https://www.ootpdevelopments.com/out-of-the-park-baseball/). Dan asks Rich about what’s new in OOTP, just how big/small the development team is, OOTP’s modding community, fan feedback, their partnership with MLB Players Association, and whether we may one day see the WBC in a OOTP game. After that, Dan talks a bit about how impressed he was with South Africa, France and the Czech Republic in recent WBC qualifiers, before previewing next week’s guest: Brandon DuBreuil of CPBLEnglish.com.

BIZARRE BASEBALL CULTURE/CONTINUUCAST 4: “THE DAY BASEBALL DIED”

The Continuucast has it’s first true “Bizarre Baseball Culture” segment as Dan looks at the 1946 Columbia Workshop radio-play, “The Day Baseball Died.” In addition, he takes a quick look “Around the Continuum” of international baseball and has a brief complaint about the fact MLB Network doesn’t show the Caribbean World Series.

Continuucast 2: Electric Boogaloo (AKA: “That Could Have Gone Better”)

 

Dan Glickman’s second foray into podcasting turns into a disaster during the second segment as he tries to tie together pitch clocks, Rob Manfred’s “One Baseball” idea and the Anti-Trust Exemption into something coherent but finds that what sounds good in his head is kind of a bit of rambling when he speaks it. He totally is going to have to write down stuff more in the future, and also expand upon what he was TRYING to say in a blog post.

Also, he said he’d discuss the 2016 All-Star Game being rewarded to San Diego, and ended up not. What a doofus.

Oh well, better luck next time, Dan!
