Episode 99 of the Sports Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch features Sports Illustrated senior writer and Fox and MLB Network reporter and broadcaster Tom Verducci. In this podcast, Verducci discusses MLB’s proposed plans to return and what he thinks of those prospects; how baseball will be covered with COVID-19 restrictions; the potential loss of media access beyond 2020; how social distancing will change media coverage; the prospect of calling MLB games from a studio as opposed to a ballpark; going through temperature checks and other health checks to cover a game; the rise of specialization as a baseball reporter; the future of gambling in baseball writing; examining Michael Jordan’s time with the White Sox and why Tom thinks Jordan would have made the majors; the SI cover telling Jordan to “Bag It, Michael”; whether one can still have a career in baseball writing as a young person in 2020 and much more.
