Episode Info: This week on Beyond The Ticket is Branch Rickey, the President of the Pacific Coast League.  We chatted about his grandfather, the famous Branch Rickey that signed Jackie Robinson, revolutionized the minor league system, and so much more.  We also chatted about his father who also worked for the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Pittsburgh Pirates and died prematurely at age 47 but not before seeing his Pirates win the World Series.  The youngest Branch started his young baseball career with the same Pirates as an office boy while in high school.  This was a great conversation with Branch sharing some very funny stories of his past baseball experiences including an awesome story about his first game in the Appalachian League.  And that's just the tip of the iceberg in this extended interview.
