The research process continues with a special Halloween episode of the Bedford & Sullivan podcast!
Speaking of the holiday, Brooklyn Dodgers outfielder Duke Snider once said he hated Halloween because their rival, the New York Giants, shared the colors of black and orange with October 31.
And so, it is fitting that today we have a man on the show so connected to the Baseball Giants franchise.
Peter Magowan was not only their President and Managing General Partner from 1993-2008, but has followed the team ever since growing up off of Central Park on 69th Street in Manhattan. We'll discuss his childhood, heading out to Ebbets Field to watch his Giants play their rivals, the heartbreak he felt when they left in 1957, and saving San Francisco from that same fate when he and a group of investors bought the franchise in the early 1990's.
So, join us at 12PM ET for the latest edition of the Bedford & Sullivan podcast!
