Episode 20
HOFer Jim Palmer

An amazing story before he ever appeared in his first game in an Oriole uniform.

Adopted at 2 days old..and another life changing event at 9..and a car accident at 17 that almost derailed his career before it ever really got started…Jim knows how both fortunate and lucky he was.

Our conversation will hit on his 3 World Series Championships..and the one that most people still say got away.

His first win in a big league uniform and the circumstances of his last..what he thought of some of his teammates and the toughest out in his time in baseball..not getting to 300 wins..the night he found out he was elected to the Hall (this is a good one)..and of course his relationship with fellow HOFer Earl Weaver (which is a little complicated but fascinating)

8 20 wins seasons..3 Cy Young Awards..Top 5 8 times btw..268 wins (the most in the decade of the 1970’s with 186)..211 complete games..53 shutouts and a .638 win %
