This month on Party in the Back we party with two of our favorites, Benjamin Hill and Cameron Hughes.
First Ben gives us the pre-season state of minor league baseball. The post-COVID season proved to be a transition year for many teams and this year (hopefully) puts teams back on firm ground for attendance and promotions.
Ben also talks about new team names, COPA, the Nine, Front Office move and his quest to find a good Wedding Promotion. Always great to learn from MILB’s leading scribe.

Then Canadian National Treasure Cameron Hughes jumps on the podcast to talk about the crowing achievement of his career, being noted in the 1,000th Water Cooler post. Actually we discuss the connective power of a crowd and how game operations can be as simple as being the spark to ignite the audience. Plus Cameron shares his love for teachers.
Thank you for listening and sharing the podcast.
