Show Notes

Don't call it a come back! Like, for real, don't do that. For our glorious return we discuss the many nicknames of Cleveland baseball, the first American Indian player in the majors and, of course, how that all culminated into a lawsuit. 

Corrections: Louis was not over 6 feet. Baseball reference has him listed as 5 foot 11 inch MANLET. Baseball gloves were in use during Louis' playing days, though they looked much different than they do today.
