This is a great way to hear from some of the baseball players in a time when we are missing baseball. It would be great if it continues after the players are released from the compound as well.


Ian Happ, of the Chicago Cubs, and teammates Dakota Mekkes and Zack Short share their MLB experiences, baseball life, and interview guests on The Compound, part of The Blue Wire Podcast Network.
