On this episode of the Sports Info Solutions Baseball Podcast, Mark Simon (@markasimonsays) is joined by Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins (@cedmull30), who is having a breakthrough season. Mullins talks about his favorite play from childhood (an unassisted triple play!) (1:00) and what goes into making some of the great catches he’s made (he walked us through several) (1:44). Mullins also talks about self-awareness and the understanding that giving up switch-hitting could help make him a better hitter (6:58).
Cedric Mullins Highlights
Mark is also joined by Adam Darowski (@baseballtwit) of Sports-Reference.com to discuss the Baseball-Reference project – The Negro Leagues Are Major Leagues – in which the company added a considerable amount of statistical information to its databases and incorporated it as stats equivalent to the National League and American League (11:19). Adam talks about why the site took on the project (13:57) and some of the many cool statistical discoveries that can be made with a few clicks of a mouse (16:42).
