JUNK's own baseball diehard Dave Franks got to have an intimate chat with pro MLB player Cavan Biggio to get down to the nitty-gritty of all things baseball and what it means to be a pro baller. They cover topics that range from balancing work/home life to what it was like coming up in the industry and the work that goes into achieving a spot in the MLB. There are three episodes, and with the kick-off of the MLB season, they're a perfect listen to get in the mood for the game. So sit back, relax, and take a listen to a pro ball discussion.
Cavan Episode 1: Talking on influences from Cavan's father, Craig Biggio (an MLB veteran), how second base was a natural fit, his beginnings in baseball, differences he's noticed coming from college/minor league baseball to the major leagues, the all-important question "Metal bat, or wood?" and what it was like stepping onto a major league ball field to play for the first time ever.
Cavan Episode 2: How has COVID affected the game, what's it's really like being a pro ballplayer, the difficulties that come with the pro ball come up, Cavan's mentors and the veterans that helped him get there, growing as a player within his position, what it's like being a pro ball player when it's not "just for fun" anymore, and how does Cavan recover after playing an entire season.
Cavan Episode 3: Dave is putting Cavan on the spot with some wrap-up rapid-fire questions. It's time to get personal.
