An Interview with Ivan Rodriguez 7/23/15

Hey baseball fans!

I have another great interview for you today. It's an interview I did in person when I was recently at the Hall of Fame. Here are some hints: he was a catcher and his nickname was "Pudge." If you guessed Carlton Fisk, sorry you're wrong. Here's one more hint: he holds the all-time record for most Gold Gloves by a catcher with an amazing 13!!! Well, I'm sure by now you know that I'm speaking about the great Ivan Rodriguez.  Pudge played from 1991-2011 during which time he collected 2,844 hits and 311 homers and batted .296. He won the MVP in 1999, was a 14-time All Star and was instrumental in the Marlins' 2003 World Series title run. He was unbelievable!! And behind the plate he was amazing! He threw out 46% of the guys who tried to steal off him.


Now, without further delay, if you'd like to watch my video interview with Pudge, just click here.

I hope you enjoyed the interview. Pudge was great. Thanks for reading and watching. Tune in again real soon for more of "all the buzz on what wuzz."

And if you want to read up on other great fielders and other awesome players in baseball history, please check out my book, Amazing Aaron to Zero Zippers. Pudge is profiled in the Golden Gloves chapter.
