It’s not super often that you get a real life big leaguer in your office, so we took full advantage of the opportunity with Dodgers swing man Ross Stripling.
On today’s show:
- Getting to know Ross
- Insight into “The Big Swing” podcast, hosted by Ross and long-time friend Cooper
- How much he and other big league athletes pay attention to social media
- Favorites, plus “this or that”
- And questions from Twitter
Get to know Thomas Ross Stripling better than you ever thought you did with this fun filled, exclusive interview. We delve into topics including how he became a pitcher, his favorite player growing up, and who he tried to most emulate as a pitcher.
Ross tells Clint and Brook all about The Big Swing podcast and his relationship with co-host and friend Cooper Surles. We touch on some of the highlights from the podcast’s early run, including borrowing questions from the Cody Bellinger episode for Ross!
Hyun-Jin Ryu Chat
We would be remiss to not touch on the hottest pitcher on the planet right now — Hyun-Jun Ryu — with a former National League All-Star, and ask for advice on how Ryu could avoid a second half regression in 2019.
Social Media, Favorites, and Twitter Questions
Brook takes the opportunity to ask how in-tune with his social media mentions Ross is, and wonders if other big leaguers pay much attention to the internet.
With the fun stuff, we dig into some of “Chicken Strip’s” favorites, top choices, and other interesting questions from our Twitter audience.
