Check out last week’s Ballpark Digest Broadcasters Chat, where Mick Gillispie and Jesse Goldberg-Strassler discussed the different nicknames for a fastball, Tom Cheek’s “Touch ’em all, Joe!” call and anecdotes surrounding umpires.
Jesse Goldberg-Strassler is the Voice of the Lansing Lugnuts and the author of The Baseball Thesaurus and The Football Thesaurus. Mick Gillispie is the Voice of the Tennessee Smokies and a spring-training broadcaster for the Chicago Cubs, as well as the winner of the Broadcaster of the Year in the 2017 Ballpark Digest Awards.

The next Facebook Live is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Eastern / 9:30 a.m. Central on Thursday, March 7. This is a slight time change due to Mick’s schedule, calling the Chicago Cubs spring-training game that day.
