Ken Singleton former baseball player and current television sports commentator. He played as an outfielder and designated hitter in the MLB for the New York Mets, Montreal Expos, and Baltimore Orioles.
Ken joined Ed & Steve to talk about the 1983 World Series won by the Baltimore Orioles! Ken was also on to talk about the event next weekend in Timonium where the 83 team is re-uniting to sign autographs for fans.
Ed asked Ken about this season’s Orioles and their playoff hopes vs the Yankees playoff hopes. Ken said neither team is really pulling away and that the Yankees pitching is costing them big time. Ken said it’s just a matter of which team gets hot, and that the Yankees offense is picking up and will be tough for the Orioles pitching staff to deal with.
Steve asked Ken about A-Rod and what the players actually feel about his return. Ken said that the Yankees are so desperate for offense and production from 3rd base that they are tolerating him. However he said while the players are looking the other way the fans are not and A-Rod is getting relentlessly booed.
Finally Ken shared his thoughts on drug testing in baseball, and how he feels it should be done.
