Strike Zone podcast: 2015's best, worst and funniest baseball moments

Wednesday December 23rd, 2015

As December winds down and 2015 comes to an end, it's time to reflect on the season that was in Major League Baseball. But what tops the list of this year's best, worst and most memorable moments?

On this week's edition of The Strike Zone podcast, Ted Keith and Stephen Cannella revisit the year in baseball, from the highs to the lows and everything in between. From Jose Bautista's bat flip to end all bat flips to the Royals' unlikely run to a World Series title to the delightful presence of Bartolo Colon and a bewildering week of power from Daniel Murphy, Ted and Steve talk about their favorite stories from the season and what made them so special. From there, the two discuss the history-making campaigns of a pair of the game's biggest stars, Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz, before picking their favorite pitching performances of the year. Finally, Ted and Steve look back on some of the year's saddest, silliest and most bizarre moments, from Jonathan Papelbon choking Bryce Harper to the passing of Hall of Famers Yogi Berra and Ernie Banks.
