The boys are back from Mesa and they came back with stories about baseball, golf, babes, toilet paper and more. Another spring training is in the books, and although it was different, the memories will always be there. Major breaking news on this show as well.
We're coming back....back to Mesa that is. Plane leaves on Tuesday, games start on Wednesday. Four straight chances to see the beloved Cubs. The last time we were there, was one of the last normal days we knew - pre-pandemic. Also, on this show..we celebrate Ryker's birthday, Stu and William sing a duet and where the f#%ck is Hartmann???
As we near the end of Black History Month, I think of African American Heroes that have made a profound impact on my life - there are too many to name, but here are some: Ernie Banks, Kirby Puckett, Jackie Robinson, Prince, Morgan Freeman, Alan Page and now I can add one...the guest on today's show.
I had not heard of LaVonte Stewart until the other day, and then we had a chance to interview him and hear his story. His organization, the Lost Boyz was founded in 2009 by LaVonte Stewart, an area resident, who felt a call to action after witnessing antisocial behavioral patterns increasingly impact local youth. Having experienced firsthand the profound impact baseball can have on a child’s development, LaVonte rallied the community around organized youth baseball. In 2014, Lost Boyz observed this persistent pattern affecting young ladies as well. They extended our service to include girls. Their programs include both girls and boys.
Listen to this podcast to hear someone truly making a difference in this world and who uses baseball as the core of his business.

It is time to add Cholula to the Club 400 Podcast. 2021 is the years where we bring in the real fans, the members of Club 400. In this episode the boys lay out the plan and discuss additional efforts to get to the Club 400 goal of $1,000,000 for charities. Also, some great conversation on the Ricketts family who brought us the 2016 World Championship - do you remember or are you suffering from short term memory?
Our first show of the year is an interview with an amazing man who happened to have a 48 year career in baseball (he's not done by the way) and has positively affect 100's of thousands of people along the journey. He is a good friend of Club 400, he throws a "snapdragon", his smile lights up a room and his wisdom keeps the lights on. Ray Burris!
This show is the reason Club 400 Podcast got off the ground. We wanted to do a show for the fans about the fans of the Chicago Cubs. Who is a better, more recognizable fan than Dorothy Farrell? Dorothy is a gift to Cubs fans and this show is our gift to you. This show is about 3 years in the making, and we need to especially thank Sue McVicar and Jimmy LaFrancis for participating.
