The 2014 World Series will head to San Francisco tonight with things all knotted up after the Kansas City Royals defeated the San Francisco Giants 7-2 in Game Two Wednesday night in KC.

A lot can happen in 13 years, and that’s how long it’s been since a Ram has made it to the major leagues. On July 22, Nick Martinez will return to the Bronx where he played for the Fordham Rams for 3 years. He will step on the mound at Yankee Stadium as a Texas Ranger.
Saturday afternoon Mike Watts and I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with Sharon Robinson, an author, education consultant to MLB, and daughter of Jackie Robinson. After seeing the film seven times she says, Sharon discusses the new film "42," her own memories of her father, and the current state of baseball. With a few books to her name, and a new biography out about her father, Sharon Robinson says she is looking forward to April 15th and is eternally proud that #42 continues to mean something today.
