Check out another wonderful podcast interview with Fred Lynn. The Baseball Rabbi asked Fred some great questions, and a fun interview. Check it out here:
Back in the 1970s and early 80s, Red Sox centerfielder Fred Lynn was one of the greatest players in the Major Leagues. He won the MVP and Rookie of the Year in 1975 (and deserved to win the MVP again in 1979), he was an All Star nine years in a row and a starter six times, and he was the ALCS MVP in 1982 even though he was on the losing team (let that sink in). In this special episode, Pesach and Scott talk to Fred Lynn about his three College World Series championships at USC, his thoughts on the 1978 Red Sox collapse, how he looks at his stats with the benefit of hindsight, the way he played his best on the biggest stages, and much more.
