Every other Tuesday at 9 AM a new podcast will be released.
April 3, 2018: Roberto DeVicenzo … The victim of one of the most historic errors in the history of sports, and definitely in the history of golf, DeVicenzo signed an incorrect scorecard at the 1968 Masters. Remembered mostly for this gaffe, DeVicenzo won the 1967 British Open, is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, and won the first ever U.S. Senior Open. Golf historian Peter Kessler joins the podcast for a look back at the career of DeVicenzo.
April 20, 2018: Urban Shocker … Hard to figure out why some stars are remembered and some are forgotten. Urban Shocker is one of those who has been forgotten despite a terrific career for the New York Yankees and St. Louis Browns. He won 187 games, had a devastating change of pace pitch – the slow ball – and was one of the most dominant pitchers of his time. Yet, through the years, his accomplishments have faded away. Some even think he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Author Steve Steinberg who wrote the book, “Urban Shocker, Silent Hero of Baseball’s Golden Age,” is the guest on this edition of SFH.
May 1, 2018: Gottfried von Cramm … Author Marshall Jon Fisher who wrote the book, “A Terrible Splendor” , returns to the podcast to talk about von Cramm. A real hero, von Cramm helped several people who had to flee German when Hitler came into power. Von Cramm played in, perhaps, the greatest tennis match ever – a Davis Cup semifinal against Don Budge. The stakes were incredibly high for von Cramm. If he lost, there was no telling what Hitler had in store for him. This is more than just a story about a tennis match, this edition of SFH also visits all von Cramm faced before, during and after the match.
