Ballpark Behavior and Baseball's Battle With Blisters (Ep. 65)

The Ringer's Ben Lindbergh and Michael Baumann banter about the early season’s upside-down standings (02:00), toasted grasshoppers at Safeco Field (06:30), the etiquette of the wave (09:30), and how quickly you should quit on a closer (12:00). Then they bring on two dermatologists, Dr. John E. Olerud and Dr. Charles E. Crutchfield (15:00), to talk about how Dr. Olerud balanced pro baseball and medical school (16:00), possible remedies for Rich Hill’s seemingly unfixable blister (23:00), the dangers of sun exposure in sports (30:00), and how Botox is helping hitters (40:45).
