Ep. 3 – Pitching and Perseverance
Guest: Scott Mathieson (Vancouver, BC) Pitcher, Team Canada With: Todd Devlin @ToddDevlin – Contributor, Canadian Baseball Network
Manager Ernie Whitt has tabbed veterans Shawn Hill and Scott Mathieson to split a Game 1 start against Italy in the WBC opener. Both pitchers will work with a 45-pitch limit before handing things off to the bullpen. What does Hill think about the pitch count rules? And what does it mean to the right-hander to play for Team Canada? We also learn about how Mathieson, a reliever in 2012, prepared to stretch himself out for this tournament. And we hear about his experiences playing professionally in Japan. All this and more in the third episode of the Canadian Baseball Network podcast.
