On 6/17/09 at Kauffman Stadium, I was interviewed live on FSN during the 3rd inning. Unfortunately, because MLB is so strict about not letting anyone do anything with any of their footage anywhere or anytime for any reason, I can’t put the interview on YouTube. So it’s now on my own web site instead. The only problem is…it’s a really big file (about 66 MB) and it’s in .mov format, so if you’re using a PC and you want to watch it, you might need to download QuickTime. But I think you can get it for free. I don’t know. And if you’re using a Mac, the file will likely take several minutes to load, during which time you should see the blue QuickTime “Q” (pictured here on the right), so please be patient. (Thanks to Bob Buck for recording the interview and getting it to me in a digital format.)
As for the interview itself, I had been told that it would take place in the top of the 3rd inning, and since Zack Greinke was pitching, I assumed it’d be done three minutes later. I just KNEW he was going to retire the Diamondbacks in order…and I was right…but luckily (and totally unexpectedly), just after the third out was recorded, I learned that my interview was going to be extended into the bottom of the 3rd.
