Congratulations to the Toledo Mudhens for winning this year’s MiLB FoodFight! The winning dish? The Fantastic Freeze Sundae. Three flavors of your favorite Toft’s ice cream x 5 scoops of each delicious flavor, topped with whipped cream, hot fudge, rainbow sprinkles, peanuts and cherries, and served in a full-sized Mud Hens helmet. Sounds awesome! Since I live in the Toledo area, I will go and try this awesome dessert if you fans help us out! If we can get 20 more iTunes reviews by the end of June, I will go up to Fifth Third Field and immerse myself in ice cream. So get reviewing peeps!
Here’s what you’ll get in this episode:
This week we saw the Rule 4 Draft take place and the Houston Astros took Stanford pitcher Mark Appel first overall. Appel was drafted a year ago in the first round by the Pirates but he refused to sign and returned to college. We see it many times where college football or basketball players decide to come back to college rather than jump to the pros and are praised for staying in school. But in Appel’s case he was vilified for staying in school. Interesting debate.
Adam Marco from the West Virginia Power stops by to discuss Stetson Allie, the former Power pitcher who has converted to first base and is tearing the cover off the ball in the South Atlantic League hitting .326 with 16 HR and 55 RBI.
