Former major leaguer Torii Hunter hosted an Uninterrupted podcast with none other than Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette, Josh Donaldson, Aaron Judge, and Fernando Tatis Jr. as his guests.
During a time when there is no Blue Jays baseball being played, this podcast is pure gold and features Bo Bichette and Josh Donaldson going back and forth on their experiences in Toronto as well as the postseason dramatics of 2015.
Hunter asks the guests how they are passing the time during the Coronavirus baseball stoppage and Bichette provides the best answer humanly possible. The shortstop admits he has been watching past ball games and has watched the Jose Bautista Bat Flip inning versus the Texas Rangers at least five times.
Donaldson chimes in and walks the listeners through his version of how the inning played out and how passionate Blue Jays fans were during his time in Toronto. Bichette also told a story from Toronto FC player Michael Bradley who advised him he could hear the Rogers Centre crowd following the Bautista homer during their game at BMO Field. Bichette was enamored with the entire postseason run and is chomping at the bit to share stories of how his own experiences.

Players spoke about how they are attempting to stay in game shape during the layoff. Bichette admitted he has access to a full gym and his father built an indoor batting cage in their house a couple of years back so he is not missing a beat.
Bichette also spoke about his most memorable moments as a major leaguer thus far and what him breaking the doubles record meant to his father who idolized the previous record holder. His energy and love for the game is so glaringly obvious every time he talks baseball.
The entire podcast and its guests are worth a listen as they are some of the brightest talents in the game. Definitely some good fodder to fulfill your baseball appetite during this period of social distancing.
Give it a listen, you won’t be disappointed.
