A Pod of Their Own, Episode 139: Unionize The Minors and Sound The Trumpets

This week on the show, we talk about Old Timers’ Day, Timmy Trumpet, and the historic step this week toward unionizing the minor leagues.

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 current state of the Mets, as they sit three games up on the Atlanta Braves as they play a tough series with the Dodgers before the schedule gets much easier. But, this series with the Dodgers has featured some live Timmy Trumpet content, which we have greatly enjoyed.

Next, we talk about Old Timers’ Day and praise the organization for a fantastic event, especially the surprise retirement of Willie Mays’ No. 24.

Then, we discuss the historic first step taken by the MLB Players’ Association this week toward unionizing minor leaguers.

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.
