Jim is joined by USA Today Baseball Columnist and HOF voter Bob Nightengale to break down the hall of fame candidacy of former MLB first baseman, Fred McGriff. First, Jim and Bob discuss how McGriff is one of the most consistent power hitters in MLB history (7:09). Next, they cover how McGriff compares to Willie McCovey, how playing in the steroid era hurts McGriff, and whether or not ending his career seven home runs shy of reaching the 500 home run club is a big deal (12:37). Finally, they talk about McGriff's monster numbers during the 1994 strike-shortened season (25:56), before making a final call on whether or not McGriff deserves to be inducted into Cooperstown (30:02).

This Day in Baseball - The Daily Rewind

Frank Robinson was the first black manager when the Cleveland Indians hired him, but there was another black player who managed before Robbie . . . .     On November 4, 1948  Jake Powell, 39, former big league baseball star, shot himself to death in Washington police headquarters late today while being questioned on bad check charges. Powell had been picked up at the Union Station the complaint of a local hotel where he had been staying the past three days. After Powell was taken to the check and fraud division of local police headquarters and during the questioning police said he asked permission to leave the room for several minutes. Police said he stepped outside the door pulled out a 25-caliber revolver and shot himself once in the chest and once in the right temple.  With him when he was taken into custody was a woman who identified herself as Josephine Amder, of Deland, Fla. she told police she and Powell had planned to be married during the day, but later changed their plans. But Mrs. Elizabeth Powell, to whom the ballplayer had been married several years, said she was still his wife and as far as she was concerned there had been no separation. On November 4, 1889 — After a formal meeting of representatives from all National League chapters, the Brotherhood issues a “Manifesto” in which it claims that “players have been bought, sold and exchanged as though they were sheep instead of American citizens.” This bold statement constitutes a declaration of war between the Brotherhood and major league officials which will soon explode into the formation of the Players League.   86 years later . . . .   On November 4, 1976 — The first mass-market free agent re-entry draft is held at the New York Plaza Hotel. Among those available are Reggie Jackson, Willie McCovey, Joe Rudi, Don Gullett, Gene Tenace, Nate Colbert, Rollie Fingers, Don Baylor, and Bobby Grich. McCovey and Colbert are the only two players not selected, but McCovey will catch on with the Giants in spring training and have a banner year at his old first base position. Jackson will go onto star for the New York Yankees and win two World Championships. Fingers will have several excellent seasons for the Padres and Brewers including winning an MVP and Cy Young award. Baylor will go to win an MVP award.     On November 4, 1959 — – Ernie Banks wins his second National League MVP Award in a row on the strength of his 45 home runs and 143 RBI for the Chicago Cubs. Eddie Mathews finishes second.   What really made 1959 special for Ernie was his defense, his 3.5 Dwar is the highest of his career, he will be rewarded with a gold glove in 1960, but he was much better in 1959.       Fun fact from 1955 to 1960 his 248 home runs were more than anyone else in the majors, including Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Hank Aaron. His 5 Grand slams in a single season is still tied for the single season record in the NL. And was the MLB record until 1987.   On November 4, 2001, the Arizona Diamondbacks win their first World Series championship. Down a run to the Yankees in the ninth, the D-Backs rally against New York closer Mariano Rivera, winning on a single by Luis Gonzalez, 3-2. Tony Wolmack had tied the game 2 batters earlier, doubling down the right-field line. It was the first time since 1985, two twenty-game winners start Game 7 of the World Series when Yankee right-hander Roger Clemens (20-3) faces Curt Schilling (22-6) of the Diamondbacks at Bank One Ballpark in Arizona. Sixteen years ago, Bret Saberhagen (20-6) of the Royals squared off against Cardinal hurler John Tudor (21-8) in the Fall Classic finale at Kauffman Stadium.   The four-year-old Diamondbacks, the youngest franchise to win a Fall Classic, end New York's string of three consecutive World Championships. Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling share the Series MVP honors. The Arizona pitchers are the first multiple winners since the Los Angeles Dodgers trio of Ron Cey, Pedro Guerrero and Steve Yeager shared the award in the 1981 World Series. Following the 2010 season, a panel of experts at the MLB Network will vote this game the 9th greatest game of the past fifty years. It was the first time since 1985, two twenty-game winners start Game 7 of the World Series when Yankee right-hander Roger Clemens (20-3) faces Curt Schilling (22-6) of the Diamondbacks at Bank One Ballpark in Arizona. Sixteen years ago, Bret Saberhagen (20-6) of the Royals squared off against Cardinal hurler John Tudor (21-8) in the Fall Classic finale at Kauffman Stadium.     Birthday boy Dick Groat Born: November 4, 1930, Wilkinsburg, PA The acknowledged leader of the Pirates, Groat was a good-hitting shortstop with great range. He helped Pittsburgh to the World Series title in 1960, and after being dealt to St. Louis, played for their World Championship team in 1964. At Duke Univeristy, Groat was an All-American baskertball player who spurned offers to make professional basketball his career. In 1960 he was named National League Most Valuable Player, when he won the batting title.   Best Season, 1960 groat staved off challengers to win the batting title with a .325 mark. He excelled at Forbes Field: batting .363 at home and .290 in road games. A singles hitters, Groat had just 32 extra-base hits, one of the lowest marks by an MVP winner, but he was sure-handed in the field, as usual. As he did much of his career, Groat hit well against southpaws: .376 in 178 at-bats. After he slumped in July, Groat responded by hitting .373 in August and .344 in September/October. On September 6, a Lew Burdette pitch broke Groat's wrist, sidelining the shortstop for nearly four weeks. He returned the last weekend of the year and played in the World Series. After his playing career, Banks became the first African-American to manage in the Major Leagues on May 8, 1973, when, as a coach, he took over for ejected manager Whitey Lockman during extra innings of a 3-2 win over the Padres in San Diego

Willie Mays had a lot of great days in his career but one of his best was April 30, 1961. His teammate and one of my old coaches Joey Amalfitano told me his first hand account of the day Willie Mays hit 4 home runs. Mays and Willie McCovey went out to dinner the night before and Mays came down with a nasty case of food poisoning. He knew he wouldn't be able to play and took himself out of the game, but during batting practice Amalfitano asked him what percent he was feeling. Mays responded saying he felt about 70%. Amalfitano said, “70 percent of Willie Mays is still better than anybody else.”Amalfitano also gave Mays his bat to use which was a little lighter and Mays took batting practice and started launching balls into the seats. He decided to play and hit 4 homers in 5 at-bats and now Amalfitano's bat is in the Hall of Fame to commemorate that day. Visit my website: saxinthemorning.com for merchandise and other links. Follow us on social media: Instagram: @saxinthemorning_podcastYouTube: subscribe and watch shorts here

New York Yankees legend Bobby Richardson steps into the Batter's Box for Episode 65 of Break a Bat! Over the course of a storied 12-year career spanning 1955-1966, Richardson was selected to more All-Star Games (8) and won more Gold Glove Awards (5) than any 2nd Baseman while performing on Broadway. He also won the 1960 World Series Most Valuable Player Award when he set an all-time Fall Classic record with a remarkable 12 Runs Batted In. That record still stands today, as Richardson would go onto retire as a member of 4 World Championship casts, and the proud owner of a .305 lifetime Batting Average in the World Series. In our 2020 finale, Richardson talks with host Al Malafronte about some of his fondest memories while dawning the pinstripes. Whether it be performing with some of the most iconic casts and characters in baseball history, leading the American League in hits in 1962 with 209, or catching Willie McCovey's screaming liner to close out the World Series, his countless stories were nothing short of a joy to listen to. He also touched on the special relationship he had with his teammate Mickey Mantle, especially during the final years of Mantle's life. It was Richardson that had Mantle's funeral, and delivered a passage that's since become key scripture in the baseball community in "God's Hall of Fame." We were fortunate enough to hear Mr. Richardson recite those words in this conversation that was as uplifting as anything we've ever experienced on Break a Bat!

Willie Mays has long been recognized as baseball's greatest all-around player. In the history of the sport, few have been as inspiring as Mr. Mays, who uplifted many generations since he first captivated the baseball world with his unparalleled combination of skills, flair and joyful exuberance. This tremendous, heartfelt new book, co-authored with John Shea, and told in Mr. Mays's voice, 24: Life Stories and Lessons from the Say Hey Kid, (St. Martin's Publishing Group, on sale May 12, 2020, $28.99), is full of poignant and timeless stories and reflections from Mr. Mays, as well as tales from many others who played major roles in his career and life. Bob Costas wrote a touching and illuminating foreword. "I was very lucky when I was a child. My family took care of me and made sure I was in early at night. I didn't get in trouble. My father made sure that I didn't do the wrong thing. I've always had a special place in my heart for children and their well-being, and John Shea and I got the idea that we should do something for the kids and the fathers and the mothers, and that's why this book is being published. We want to reach out to all generations and backgrounds. Hopefully, these stories and lessons will inspire people in a positive way." -Willie Mays Mr. Mays is a Hall of Famer, and that just begins to tell the story of the impact this American hero has had on generations in the U.S. and worldwide. Shortly after baseball's racial barrier was broken by Jackie Robinson, Mr. Mays triumphed against still-pervasive bigotry, not just with his enormous talents on the field, but by adhering to the type of life plan and philosophy that he lays out in this reflective and inspirational memoir. Mr. Mays' accomplishments go on and on: 660 home runs, 3,283 hits, 338 stolen bases, 12 straight Gold Glove Awards, 24 All-Star Game appearances. His catch in the 1954 World Series is a defining moment in baseball history but hardly his best play. He appeared in a World Series in his first and final big-league seasons, and the World Series Most Valuable Player Award is named in his honor. A statue in his likeness stands at 24 Willie Mays Plaza, where 24 palm trees line the entrance to the San Francisco Giants ballpark, which has a brick wall in right field standing 24 feet high. The city dedicated one of its famous cable cars to Mr. Mays: Car 24. 24: Life Stories and Lessons from the Say Hey Kid draws from more than 200 interviews with Hall of Famers, teammates,, opponents, Negro Leaguers, managers, commissioners, childhood friends, celebrities, and three U.S. presidents. The book contains marvelous stories and anecdotes from the likes of baseball colleagues Hank Aaron, Rickey Henderson, Reggie Jackson, Pete Rose, Frank Robinson, Monte Irvin, Willie McCovey, Joe Morgan, and Vin Scully, to international figures such as Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, plus scores of never-before-seen photos. Mr. Shea spent more than 15 years researching for this book and diligently worked with Mr. Mays to construct an original memoir with all fresh material and previously untold stories of a man who values family and community, engages in charitable causes - especially involving children - and follows a philosophy that encourages hope, hard work, and the fulfillment of dreams. This revealing book will position Willie Mays among the most influential American historical, cultural and public icons. 24: Life Stories and Lessons from the Say Hey Kid is presented in 24 chapters to correspond with Mr. Mays' universally recognized uniform number, showing his deep and tremendous influence on people in and out of baseball as well as what has driven him to achieve greatness, including the impact his father had on his life. It is destined to be a book that everyone will turn to for guidance and life-planning, and will prove conclusively that heroes do indeed still exist.

11-2-2018 Passed Ball Show- John opens up the program by talking about the passing of Hall of Fame first baseman Willie McCovey. McCovey was a dominant power hitter of his time and his style and approach should be studied by the home run hitters of today. Two fair comparables would be HOF first baseman Willie Stargell and should be Hall of Famer Fred McGriff. John then talks about the disastrous season the Oakland Raiders have had, who is to blame, and is the message is fair enough to say that the future could look bright as the team plans its move to Las Vegas. Could the 1983 Phillies won the World Series if they upgraded at first base instead of playing Pete Rose there? Rose had one of the worst recorded seasons for a regular player in baseball history. As much as Luis Tiant is respected throughout the game of baseball, he falls short when it comes to legitimate consideration for Baseball's Hall of Fame. Finally, some respect and prayers are needed for Glory's Market in Jackson. Terrible job by the local news media to prioritize the traffic conditions over the lives that are at risk and the damage caused to the business.

“Around 380 BC, the Greek philosopher Plato wrote in the Republic about the idealized society as having a “united influence of music and sport” where its people “mingle music with sport in the fairest of proportions.” – from the Rhythms of the Game: The Link Between Musical and Athletic Performance (Hal Leonard Corporation, 2011) As a youngster growing up in the Berkeley Hills in the early 60s, I loved jazz–the rhythmic jests and jolts of Louis Armstrong, the sensuous guitar of Antonio Carlos Jobim, the manic mastery of drummer Buddy Rich. I loved baseball, too, and my best friend and I imitated the kinetic rhythms of our favorite pitchers . . . the high-kicking Juan Marichal and the smoldering, snake-like delivery of Bob Gibson. And then there were the unique batting styles and varied rhythms of our favorite hitters– the whipsaw swing of Willie Mays, the languorous, looping swing of lefty Willie McCovey. And then came Muhammad Ali. Watching Ali box was pure magic – poetry. I’d always believed that Ali was a begloved body-jazz musician ever improvising new creative rhythmic repertoires in the ring. But it wasn’t until I read Rhythms of the Game: The Link Between Musical and Athletic Performance (Hal Leonard Corporation, 2011) and spoke with co-author Dave Gluck in this wonderful interview that it all made sense. Gluck, a peripatetic percussionist professor of studio composition at Purchase College, State University of New York, had the extraordinary experience of having New York Yankee All-Star centerfielder Bernie Williams walk into his office one day in 2007 to inquire about music classes. Williams, in addition to being one of the finest baseball players of his era and one of the greatest post-season players in baseball history, was in the process of making a transition into a second career as a professional musician. A classically trained student at a performing arts high school in his native Puerto Rico, Williams had always been as devoted to music as he was to sports ever since he was captivated by the sounds of flamenco guitar as a young boy. Williams’ illustrious baseball career included taking his guitar with him wherever he went and going so far as to assess the acoustics in major league ballparks (the tunnel in Anaheim Stadium was his favorite). Enter the third collaborator, music colleague Bob Thompson. Thompson is a two-time Grammy nominated composer, conductor, producer and performer, co-founder (along with Gluck) of the Rhythm and Brass eclectic jazz/classical group, as well as the Baseball Music Project. Gluck, Williams, and Thompson’s conversations became the impetus for a unique book, Rhythms of the Game: The Link Between Musical and Athletic Performance. This is a thought-provoking, fact-rich but also highly anecdotal, reader-friendly and entertaining product of three different men who love music…and sports… and the rhythms in life. Although the book isn’t specifically about jazz, it nonetheless is somehow all about jazz, and if you appreciated how Ornette Coleman and Keith Jarrett explored and pushed musical and performance boundaries, or how the transcendent talent of a Coltrane was as much the product of hours and hours of practice and study and not just a “gift,” and if you ever sought to understand the mysteries that musicians and athletes experience of “being in the zone,” you’ll love this book. With so many fascinating strands, Rhythms of the Game: The Link Between Musical and Athletic Performance will appeal to everyone – not just musicians, not just athletes, but to anyone, young or old.

“Around 380 BC, the Greek philosopher Plato wrote in the Republic about the idealized society as having a “united influence of music and sport” where its people “mingle music with sport in the fairest of proportions.” – from the Rhythms of the Game: The Link Between Musical and Athletic Performance (Hal Leonard Corporation, 2011) As a youngster growing up in the Berkeley Hills in the early 60s, I loved jazz–the rhythmic jests and jolts of Louis Armstrong, the sensuous guitar of Antonio Carlos Jobim, the manic mastery of drummer Buddy Rich. I loved baseball, too, and my best friend and I imitated the kinetic rhythms of our favorite pitchers . . . the high-kicking Juan Marichal and the smoldering, snake-like delivery of Bob Gibson. And then there were the unique batting styles and varied rhythms of our favorite hitters– the whipsaw swing of Willie Mays, the languorous, looping swing of lefty Willie McCovey. And then came Muhammad Ali. Watching Ali box was pure magic – poetry. I’d always believed that Ali was a begloved body-jazz musician ever improvising new creative rhythmic repertoires in the ring.
