On this episode, we test out a new format - “3 Strikes” - where the three of us choose one specific subject to speak about from a more general Wiffle Ball topic. In this episode, the general topic is historical/”retired” Wiffle Ball pitchers. Nick, Paul, and Tim each choose a pitcher from a bygone era of the game to discuss. Find out why these pitchers were on our minds, what stood out about them when they played, interesting stories from our interactions with them, where we think they stand historically, and much more!
Following the pitching projection/evaluation discussion, we turn our attention to the other side of the ball. Some wifflers believe that hitting a wiffleball is one of the hardest things to do in any sport. It can also be difficult (if not impossible) to replicate top-level pitching outside of game situations. So how do young hitters grow? What are the fundamental aspects of a good wiffleball hitter? How long does it take to develop into the hitter you are ultimately going to be? We tackle all of this and more in this edition of The DROP Podcast!
Mike Boyles is back in the wiffle scene interviewing Brendan Leonard, the star from the original Wiffleball video many have seen, "Wiffle Ball Stadium". It's one of our longer commutes, but very much worth the listen!
Carl ends his Season 2 shows with Indiana wiffle legend, Jeremy Ratajczyk. J-Rat gives his thoughts on the red hot wiffle offseason, the NWLA Tournament, next generation of Indiana wifflers and much much more. sYa in April!
