Scene Podcast No. 4: Talking Semi-Pro Baseball

Posted By on Fri, Aug 23, 2013 at 12:43 PM


This week's feature by Sam Allard gives readers a look into the minimum-wage life of semi-pro ballplayers who put on uniforms for the Lake Erie Crushers out in Avon.

Some get just $600 a month to chase their dreams. All of them live with host families in the area, the only way to make the shabby economics of unaffiliated baseball work.

Listen below as host Craig Lyndall talks with Sam about their lives on the field and in the spare rooms of generous families' houses.
