The Old Ballgame Podcast

Your Home For Off Season Baseball

Baseball fans the world over lament the off season. More so when seasons are cut short due to the wilds of the universe. The Old Ballgame Podcast will be a place for those seeking games in the off times to hear a historic ballgame and maybe keep score.

How To Listen

You can listen to the games by putting this podcast feed (http://tomwsmf.com/podcasts/theoldballgame.rss ) in the podcast player of your choice or click the player below and listen to today’s game right here.

Seeing as we are just starting out this podcast we are going to try a few things this month. First, some older games. There are not as many of the older years broadcasts so they are mostly the Big Games of the year. Then for the remainder of the month we are going to journey thru the 1964 season…and what a season it is. Please let us know what you think about the format and if you have any suggestions . you can reach us at theoldballgame@ourshowofshows.com

We are working on autogenerating the Home and Away Scorecards for all the games we are broadcasting. The Starting Roster and other Game Day information will already be filled in for you. You will find them right here on the Schedule. Click on the links, print them out, and score along with the game.
