In case you missed my Sports Rabbi “Live from Jerusalem, Israel!” show, Bill White, former NL President and Baseball Player with the Giants, Cardinals & Phillies and author of “Uppity: My Untold Story About The Games People Play” recently released by Grand Central Publishing, joined me to discuss baseball, past, present & future!
In this fantastic interview, Bill and I talk about his upbringing and his mother, his struggles with racism in the minor leagues and his time as a Major League Baseball player. Jackie Robinson is a central figure and we talk about his influence in the game and of course we discuss Bill’s 18 years in the booth with “The Scooter”, Phil Rizzuto! Bill shared some fabulous stories about what it was like to hang out with one of baseball’s greatest characters! We discuss Bill’s time as National League President, his relationship with Bart Giamatti and where the game of baseball is going today!
So sit back, relax and listen to a classic interview with one of baseball’s grandest individuals, Bill White.
