Episode #59: May 11, 2020
In April-May 2020, SABRcast with Rob Neyer was recorded via online livestream, featuring nationally known guests plus an interactive Q&A in which all baseball fans can participate. This was part of our Stay Home With SABR initiative. Live SABRcast episodes aired at 5:00 p.m. PDT on Monday nights.
This week’s guest is Josh Lewin, who has spent 25 years as a broadcaster for the Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Texas Rangers, and three other MLB teams. He is the host of a weekly baseball podcast called The Throwback League where he simulates broadcasts between World Series teams from the last four decades against each other in a March Madness-style bracket. He called national Game of the Week packages and postseason games for Fox Sports from 1996 to 2011 and has called UCLA Bruins football and men’s basketball games since 2016. In 2015, he called a Mets World Series game and an NFL game in Baltimore in the same day.
