Where does a team with no professional league in their home country hone their skills? In baseball’s home-country, of course! Find out what happens when a team of dreamers meets exhibition baseball in America.
About Designated Hitters: This limited-run podcast will tell the story of how a small country the size of New Jersey which features no professional baseball league managed to produce a world-class team that beat a string of baseball Goliaths to secure a trip to Tokyo.
With unprecedented insider access to players, coaches, and managers, the show will tell the stories of the ragtag team of athletes — some former Major Leaguers, some underdogs — who managed to pull off one of the greatest upsets in modern sports history, touching on larger themes like faith, friendship, and nationhood.
