019: The Last Podcast
This is the last episode of Bronx Bombers podcast. As they say, the podcast is podfading but not the baseball theme. I will be starting a new podcast and website, Baseball On The Fly. I decided to round third and head for home on BBP because I have so much material in my archives related to baseball but not specifically to the New York Yankees. Thus the birth of Baseball On The Fly. So thank you for your support of BBP and I look forward to seeing you "at the ballpark" again, this time with the new Baseball On The Fly, launching like a home run, very soon.
