Baseball: Past, Present, Future

Marshalltown-native Toby Huss, plays the part of baseball scout Clyde Sukeforth in the new movie “42” – a film about baseball legend Jackie Robinson, the Major Leagues’ first black player in the modern era. Host Ben Kieffer talks with actor Toby Huss about his role, working with Harrison Ford in the film, and racism in the 1940’s.

In the second half of the program, the Cedar Rapids Kernels have a new affiliation.  For the last 20 years, they have been affiliated with the Los Angeles Angels.  But starting this year, they are associated with the Minnesota Twins.  In this segment of the program, Ben Kieffer talks about that affiliation change with a few Kernels fans.
