Twins talk it Up Episode 53: Leading a Campaign to rename the MVP   Each year, the Week of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game is kicked off by events leading up to the All-Star Game between the American League and National League. The week includes entertainment, an All-Star Futures game, a Celebrity softball game and the highly anticipated Home Run Derby.  Perhaps what fans enjoy most are the stories that surround the game of baseball itself.  We all look for those stories- stories that inspire and go beyond the game itself.  One of the stories you may hear is one that surrounds the naming of the game's MVP.  The Major League Baseball Most Valuable Player Award is annually given to one outstanding player in the American League and one in the National League. In this episode, we are pleased to be joined by the great grandson of the legendary baseball player Josh Gibson.  Sean Gibson is the Director of the Josh Gibson Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing academic and athletic programs for youths to discover and reach their potential.  Sean is also leading a campaign to rename the MVP in honor of his great grandfather.  His great grandfather like so many was denied an opportunity to play in the Major Leagues.  Sean shares some of the incredible stories surrounding his great grandfather, the Negro Leagues and icons of the great game itself. Word is that 3 names are being considered for this honor: Frank Robinson (only player to win the MVP for both Leagues), former Brooklyn Dodgers owner Branch Rickey (who signed Jackie Robinson) and Josh Gibson.  It's uncertain when a decision will be made on the renaming of the MVP, but you can join the campaign, sign the petition and stay involved.  Enjoy the All Star week and the amazing stories surrounding 'America's Pastime'.

What's better than having a beer at a ballpark on a beautiful Sunday afternoon? Check out this episode with Pulitzer Prize Finalist Edward Achorn, as he explains the life of Chris von Der Ahe, the baseball owner who made that feeling possible. Achorn's book, "The Summer of Beer and Whiskey: How Brewers, Barkeeps, Rowdies, Immigrants, and a Wild Pennant Fight Made Baseball America's Game," explains how the summer of 1883 became the pivotal one in baseball history. Beforehand, he says baseball was a highbrow, humble and subdued affair. But after Chris von Der Ahe bought the St. Louis Browns, and he decided to sell beer and play on Sundays, baseball became acceptable to legions of baseball fans yearning to party while they watched America's Pastime. He also explains how von Der Ahe transformed Sportsman's Park into the model for how stadiums would be built. 1883 was also a time of social change, as Jim Crow took hold and baseball became further segregated. The Browns were truly on the cusp of a new era, led by a micromanaging but perceptive owner who paved the way for them to become the team we know as the Cardinals today.Check out Ed Achorn's website at edachorn.comHe can be found on Twitter at twitter.com/ed_achornSupport our show at patreon.com/axelbankhistory**A portion of every contribution will be given to a charity for children's literacy**"Axelbank Reports History and Today" can be found on social media at twitter.com/axelbankhistoryinstagram.com/axelbankhistoryfacebook.com/axelbankhistory

80's Flick Flashback
#31 - "Field of Dreams" (1989) with Laramy Wells

80's Flick Flashback

If you have seen this heart-warming 80's baseball fantasy flick, you likely have a strong opinion on it. While some are moved by its fantastical and heartfelt story of personal redemption, others dismiss it as over sentimental and even silly. Or as Richard Corliss of TIME Magazine once infamously put it, a "male weepie at its wussiest,". Either way you look at it, the Oscar-nominated movie still tugs at the heartstrings and makes us rekindle our love for America's Pastime. So grab your bat, ball, and glove and then head to a perfectly good Iowa cornfield as Tim Williams and guest co-host Laramy Wells discuss “Field of Dreams” from 1989 on this episode of the 80's Flick Flashback. Here are some additional behind the scenes trivia we were unable to cover in this episode: The scene in which Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta) first appears in Field of Dreams is one of the most beautifully shot in the entire movie, and after the film was released, producer Charles Gordon received all sorts of calls asking who created the foggy effect that added a dreamlike quality to the scene. In the From Father to Son documentary, Gordon revealed that this wasn't something created on set or added in post-production, instead it was one of those “magic moments” where the fog just happened to appear as they were filming and they decided to go with it, saying it was “meant to be.” This stroke of luck helped make the "Is this heaven" scene one of the most memorable of the movie and iconic shots of all time. Before composer James Horner, the musical maestro behind Titanic and Braveheart, agreed to score Field of Dreams, Robinson gave him a private test-screening. “He came to look at it at an early stage,” Robinson said on a DVD bonus feature. “We showed him the film and when the lights came up, he got up and left the room.” At first, Robinson was crestfallen, thinking Horner must've hated the film. But a few moments later, the Oscar-winning composer—who passed away in 2015—came back “very teary-eyed” and agreed to take the job.

Following the cultural "deaths" of Mr. Potato Head and Aunt Jemima, Charlie—with the help of guest host, Producer Andrew, responds to the "controversy" surrounding President Biden's decision to exclude beloved children's book author Dr. Seuss from the National Read Across America Day proclamation. Unpacking the insanity there, they point to the larger issue it undergirds in our society. And not to be distracted by what would otherwise qualify as nonsense in a normal news cycle, Charlie and Andrew tackled the Andrew Cuomo controversy as well as a riveting discussion on the return of sports and a philosophical question about the role America's Pastime plays in our country during a pandemic.
