Baseball is a game of tradition. It has remained largely unchanged for over 100 years, and it's easy to think that the players on the field are just as traditional as the game itself. But that couldn't be further from the truth. Today's game is filled with some of the most interesting and exciting personalities in the history of baseball. On-field, off-field and everything in between, enjoy a conversation among baseball people, and get to know the players and the game you already thought you knew.
