You know those banal-sounding cliches you hear baseball players say in interviews with reporters every day? Stacey May Fowles finds a lot of truth in them. She’s built a newsletter and written a book about the life lessons she’s learned as a baseball fan.
After breaking down exactly what’s up with the Toronto Blue Jays, Stacey May talks about her career writing about baseball from a fan’s perspective. She and Brian talk about how the Blue Jays’ recent run of success has changed the fan culture in Toronto, the value of writing on a closed platform like a newsletter, how Jose Bautista would be an awesome life coach, and how being an outsider can help you find your voice as a writer (especially in a closed world like sports).
Brian and Stacey May also share their favorite memories of Exhibition Stadium, the best worst stadium in Major League history.
