Hardball with Chris Dimino is a podcast almost 20 years in the making. Conversations. Not “interviews”… I promise not interviews. Conversations that I have had with some of the greatest players and others who have been a part of some of the biggest moments in baseball history. Ted Williams. Hank Aaron. Stan Musial. Whitey ford. Duke snider. Vin Scully

Joe Morgan has seen a lot in his lifetime. From the integration on baseball to being a part of broadcast history.
And in between he built a sure shot Hall of Fame career..and more importantly to him..the career of a winner.
We talk about that and more..including how the game has REALLY changed.
