Bates/Parker: This Week in Baseball History podcast: Gene Conley and Pumpsie Green go walkabout

From SABR members Mike Bates and Bill Parker at This Week in Baseball History podcast on July 27, 2018, with SABR member Adam Darowski:

In one of the stranger incidents in modern baseball history, sixty-six years ago this week, Gene Conley and Pumpsie Green walked off the Red Sox team bus in the middle of a traffic jam and disappeared into NYC. Why? And what happened to them? Mike and Bill examine this incident, as well as the lives of two of the most interesting men in baseball history. One as a star in two pro sports, and the other who broke the Red Sox’s color line. Also, happy birthday Norm Siebern and Jack Glasscock (stop giggling)!
