Host Mitch Gatzke starts episode 29 by showing love to some listeners who help make it all worth while. A sincere thank you goes out to all of you who listen and help spread the word. Mitch wraps up the retractable roof stadium pros and cons list he began in episode 28. He’s officially started down the path to being an old-timer by joining a softball team. He has some notes on the major differences between hardball and slow-pitch. Then, we get into the meat of this episode: No-Hitters. Mitch has some theories as to why we’ve seen so many serious bids already this season. He also discusses some of the fun that surrounds these feats. When do you notice that a no-hitter is developing? Do you root for your team to break up a no-no? And most importantly, do you believe in the jinx? Safe to say, our host does not. To wrap things up, we have a trivia question that can earn you a Ducks on the Pod Season 2 t-shirt, absolutely free of charge!
