This special Saturday edition of the Red Hot Broadcast features a very special interview with the Reds newest pitching starâ€”yes, I realize that is not saying much, but stillâ€”Tom Shearn.
- His win last night and the redemption he earned after his last appearance against Milwaukee.
- His potential place with the Reds next year, starter or bullpen.
How close he came to quitting baseball before finally breaking the bigs a few days before turning 30.
- His family’s role in keeping him playing baseball, even after 12 years in the minors. Does “well, what else are you going to do?” really count as support?
- Living in the groundskeeper’s trailer at Slugger Field.
- The impact of Ryan Jorgensen’s substance-related suspension.
- His goals for the future and message to the fans.
Tom’s a nice fella. Not talkative, though, so this one is short and sweet.
