The baseball/entire world is standing still for the Corona Virus, but never fear. Ack and Kiz have come to the rescue with some baseball content to keep the people sane. They are joined by fellow Stevens Duck alum and current coach Jayson Yano to discuss his background as a California HS player crossing the country to play D3 college ball in NJ, a few of the notable players he played alongside, and his Angels fandom. After getting into Baseball Aesthetics for a bit, they go deeper into coaching with the some of their methods and philosophies. For our Baseball Reference Page of the Day we discuss Mr. Angel, Tim Salmon. Hooray Sports! (we miss you)

In their very first episode presented by Diamond Digest, Ack and Kiz discuss the debuts of Guerrero, Canning, Senzel, and Kieboom comparing them to guys like Tatis and Alonso who’ve been up since opening day. Cody Bellinger may have just had the best April ever, the Indians are in trouble, and the Rays are good. After giving out this week’s bets the guys get to a fun Baseball Reference Page of the Day with Mike Cameron. Hooray Sports!

Ack and Kiz discuss who should press the panic button, who’s trending up and trending down, and some baseball aesthetics. Curtis Granderson finishes things off in Baseball Reference Page of the Day. Hooray Sports!

The show closes with Ichiro as the Baseball Reference Page of the Day. Hooray sports!
