FanGraphs Audio: Travis Sawchik on the Beat Life

Episode 734
The prolific Travis Sawchik is a former beat reporter for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and author of the book Big Data Baseball. He’s also the guest on this edition of the program, during which he identifies which Marriotts in this country are located nearest to and furthest from major-league ballparks; recalls where he’s gone drinking in Covington, Kentucky; and relays a brief, dark fact about how his ancestors have fared in the mines of Western Pennsylvania.
