In this bonus episode, we "Go the Distance" on the history and legacy of the real Archie "Moonlight" Graham, who many people know from the "Field of Dreams" movie portrayed by Burt Lancaster and Frank Whaley. Graham was a 1905 alumnus of the University of Maryland School of Medicine and made historic contributions in the field of medicine, specifically, pediatrics. Guest Larry Pitrof, executive director of the Medical Alumni Association of the University of Maryland, talks about his recent discovery of correspondence and artifacts tied to Graham that were previously unknown. This bonus episode is a condensed version of a Twitter Space that aired on Aug. 10, 2022, a day before the second annual MLB Field of Dreams game.
