Canadian Baseball Network Podcast – Jackie Robinson in Canada

I don’t like to listen to myself talk (a lot of stammering), but I was honoured to be asked to speak about Jackie Robinson’s 1946 season with the Montreal Royals for a Canadian Baseball Network podcast (I talked for about 40 minutes).

With help from Peter Bean, Scott Crawford and Alexis Brudnicki, I believe this podcast is the most extensive audio account of Jackie Robinson’s 1946 season in Montreal in existence.

Talking about Robinson’s experience in Montreal makes me feel proud to be a Canadian. Hope it does the same for my fellow Canadians reading this.

Please take the time to listen to the podcast and to go see “42” which starts in theaters on Friday.
