The Box Score Show

The Box Score Show is about the simple numbers that wowed us in the newspaper and taught us to quantify sports. It’s about a single game’s evolving place in the larger context of sports history. Hosts Kevin Chroust and Chris DeSalvo discuss one remarkable box score each week with all sorts of info about its relevance then and now, and they won’t take up an hour of your time to do it. We’ll try to avoid the most obvious games. We’ll try to avoid the confusing numbers. Rather, we’ll stick to the stats we all grew up understanding in basic box scores. And along with our research team, we’ll unearth original insights to ensure we don’t leave you feeling like you just listened to a 20-minute reading of a Wikipedia page.
