MS - Ryan Kane on Hazing

July 28, 2023

Part One:  In light of recent stories about hazing at Northwestern University, we talk about the phenomenon of hazing with Ryan Kane, athletic director at Carthage College.   Part Two:  Tim Brown, author of "The Tao of the Backup Catcher:  Playing Baseball for the Love of the Game."  The book talks about the special and unexpectedly significant role that backup catchers can play on a major league baseball team.  The book focuses in particular on Erik Kratz, whose long career included a brief yet memorable stint with the Milwaukee Brewers during their glorious 2018 season.
