Women Dig the Long Ball

And a well-executed double play, and great pitching, and hitting streaks, and... you get the picture. Women love baseball, so why aren't more of them in the game? Team Bandwagon discusses... with an actual woman in the game. Also: At what point does an athlete (or any famous person) get to bite the social media hand that's feeding them? These topics - and much more - on Bandwagon's final podcast of the season.
