Seth's Twins On Deck Podcast (Episode 7)
Image courtesy of Kirby Lee, USA TodayDick Bremer has been the TV voice for Minnesota Twins baseball games for over 30 years. He's worked with some of the best players in Twins history, and in 2018, he'll work with Bert Blyleven, Jack Morris, Roy Smalley, Torii Hunter, LaTroy Hawkins and Justin Morneau. He has been the emcee of the Diamond Awards and is very involved in the community. We'll talk broadcasting and Twins baseball.
Jake Reed is in big league camp again, attempting to make an impression on Paul Molitor, new Twins pitching coach Garvin Alston and the front office. He split 2017 between Chattanooga and Rochester.
Jordan Gore was drafted by the Twins in 2017 out of Coastal Carolina. After 18 games in Elizabethton, he ended the season with 27 games in Cedar Rapids.
Luke Pettersen is a repeat guest. He will lead off for the Minnesota Gophers on Thursday night when they play an exhibition game against the Twins at Hammond Stadium. In last weekend's Gophers trip to Georgia for four games, Pettersen went 8-20 (.400) with two doubles.
Pat Mahomes was drafted by the Twins in 1988 and debuted with the team in 1992. He spent parts of five seasons with the Twins and then played for five other MLB teams in his career. We talked about his debut and his relationship with Tom Kelly and Scott Ullger. When he joins again next week, we'll discuss more about his Twins career as well about his son, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and more.
There will also be at least one surprise guest, so you'll want to tune in. (Just waiting for final verification)
