Simply Awesome Sports – Episode 17

Greetings world!!  This week we did something a little different on Simply Awesome Sports.  Instead of the normal thing of Ridley and Matt Talking back and forth, this show is a 1 man show!  Matt went solo this week.  Hopefully Ridley can forgive!

Matt starts the show talking about Captain America before he gets sidetracked talking about how baseball needs to do a better job attracting young fans.  Matt then goes into the National League and gives a preview of some of the top teams.  There is also a little NFL free agency cherry on top of this cake.
