Connecticut Sports Talk, April 12

It's a baseball day on Nutmeg Sports. Rob Adams and Donald Eng open the show with a recap of Monday's baseball game.

Norwalk met Trinity Catholic at spacious Cubeta Stadium in Stamford, and the game stayed scoreless until the bottom half of the sixth inning, when the Crusaders got an unearned run. Norwalk rallied, playing "small ball" in the seventh. Norwalk's Eddie O'Hara delivered a two-RBI double in the eighth inning to lead the Bears to a 5-1 extra-inning win.

Besides showing the highlights, Rob and Don discuss the debut of the "birdhouse camera," courtesy of our own Doug Smith.

John Thorn is the guest on the show. Simply put, Mr. Thorn's title is the Official Historian for Major League Baseball. Rob, needless to say, is thrilled. The purpose of Mr. Thorn's visit is to talk about Daniel "Doc" Adams, a one-time Ridgefield resident who it's said might be the closest thing to a "father" of modern-day baseball.

Mr. Thorn discusses that and much more with the guys.

The show ends with the naming of the HAN/FCIAC Athlete of the Week nominees.
