The Baseball Bucket List Podcast

May 19 2022 • 31 mins

Kelly G. Park is a Cardinals fan from Western Kentucky, and the author of a two volume book set Just Like Me: When the Pros Played on the Sandlot. We chat favorite baseball memories, bucket list items, and what it's like to sit down and talk with greatness. Kelly also shares some of his favorite stories from  dozens of interviews with former MLB, Negro Leagues, and AAGPBL players about their childhood time playing baseball. He has some fascinating insights into what these ballplayers feel like really made them successful in their careers.

Kelly is also assembling fan-submitted stories to self publish his third book Just Like Me: Amateur Stories from the Sandlot. He has pledged to donate 100% of proceeds from this book towards Alzheimer's and Cancer research. Learn more and submit your story here: https://justlikemethebook.com/your-story/
