September 3, 2019 … Joe Brovia, Joe Bauman and Bob Crues enjoyed spectacular, if not, historic minor league baseball careers. They were heroes in the cities in which they played and left many scratching their heads as to why they never got the opportunity to play Major League Baseball. In fact, only Brovia appeared in the Majors, despite years in which Bauman hit 72 HRs and Crues hit 69 HRs. Gaylon H. White author of “Left On Base in the Bush Leagues,” joins the podcast for a wonderful discussion about all three.
September 17, 2019 … Ernie Nevers was one of the NFL’s greatest all-around players in the 1920s. He broke into the game with the Duluth Eskimos in 1926 and finished his career with the Chicago Cardinals in 1931. While he only appeared in 54 games, each was electric, none more fantastic than his November 28, 1929 game vs. the Chicago Bears in which he scored all 40-points in the Cardinals 40-6 victory – a record that still stands today. But, not only was Nevers a great football player (he was inducted into the Pro football Hall of Fame in 1963), he was also a Major League League caliber pitcher as he was a part of the starting rotation of the St. Louis Browns in 1926, 1927 and 1928. Lee Elder, a longtime member of the Professional Football Researcher’s Association, returns to SFH as we examine the career of Ernie Nevers.
October 1, 2019 … The last time the Cleveland Browns won a championship was when they upset the heavily favored Baltimore Colts 27-0 in the 1964 NFL Championship Game. The coach of that championship team was a man most fans don’t remember or have never heard of – Blanton Collier. Collier who had replaced the legendary Paul Brown a year earlier, actually led the Browns into four championship games. Roger Gordon who recently released the book, “Blanton’s Browns,” returns for another visit as we talk about the wonderful career of Blanton Collier.
