This week, we discuss the return of baseball, how Marcus Stroman’s injury impacts the team, and we introduce our annual Dollars for Dingers fundraiser.

Welcome back to A Pod of Their Own, a show by the women of Amazin’ Avenue where we talk all things Mets, social justice issues in baseball, and normalize female voices in the sports podcasting space.

This week, we begin by discussing the Marcus Stroman injury and how the rotation is pretty much in shambles but on the plus side their offense remains in tact.

Next, we talk about the return of baseball, how Juan Soto tested positive for COVID-19 just hours before the season was set to begin, and how the Blue Jays are still without a home.

We then introduce our all-virtual Dollars 4 Dingers fundraiser that will take place through the month of August and will benefit New York City food banks.

Finally, we wrap things up with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise.
