Home Team -- In anticipation for the World Series this week, the program shares baseball stories from the Public Radio Hall of Fame. First, the sounds of a St. Louis Cardinals' baseball game are combined with the echoes of Scott Joplin's ragtime and the distinctive calls of Bushy Wushy the Beer Man. The program hears from the 39-year veteran beer vendor at Busch Stadium, who shares his love for the game, the crowd, and the communal spirit of St. Louis. Also, at the Helena Brewers ballpark in Montana, teens get their first, and for most their only, taste of playing pro baseball.
