Cudo is joined by the Kansas City Royals Senior Director of Event Presentation. We review some of the quotes and philosophies referenced by Rafi Kohan in last month’s podcast. Don also helps us understand how the added safety nets in Kansas City effected his presentation.
Benjamin Hill talks about this year’s MILB Promo Seminar and then gives his thoughts on baseball safety nets as someone who sees games all across the country. Ben also touts the Dayton Tortugas great Bob Ross Promotion.
Rob Wicall offers up his thoughts on several of this month’s Water Cooler Moments and nominates a Best of 2017 award winner from several to September promotions from Toledo, Cincy, University of Iowa, and Charlotte.
Cudo closes the podcast with a call on baseball to install safety nets at least past the dugouts. He also offers up a netting compromise to those who oppose safety nets.
