Jeremy is joined by WCC Commissioner Gloria Nevarez, who discusses the conference’s recent adoption of “The Russell Rule” – a concept similar to the NFL’s Rooney Rule – intended to promote more diversity among the coaching and senior administrative ranks in college athletics. Plus, Gloria weighs-in on the effect COVID-19 has had on collegiate athletics. Then, the author of a recent book about Alice Marble, The Divine Miss Marble: A Life of Tennis, Fame, and Mystery, Robert Weintraub explains how Alice changed the game of tennis for women and why she is such an intriguing historical figure. And finally, as we approach the 100th anniversary of Ray Chapman being killed by a pitch to the head – the only death in MLB history as a result of an on-field incident – Jeremy is joined by Mike Sowell, who wrote the book The Pitch That Killed Carl Mays, Ray Chapman and the Pennant Race of 1920.
