Tonight’s interview is with Sounds veteran right-hander Seth McClung, who is in his 14th professional season and second stint with the Brewers organization. He pitched for them a few years ago, including in ’08 when The Crew reached the post-season for the first time since ’82. McClung originally came up through the Tampa Bay system and made his major league debut as a Devil Rays hurler in ’03. In addition to playing professional baseball (since ’99), Seth also coaches high school girls basketball in Florida.

Today’s interview from Bricktown is with Sounds right-hander Brian Baker. His Twitter handle, which he admittedly rarely uses, is @TheBakeShow14, and it’s a handle that he says he didn’t come up with. Nonetheless, or perhaps because of that, his teammates enjoy referring to him as The Bake Show. In this chat, Baker discusses his outing in last night’s rain-shortened Sounds loss, his seven years in the Tampa Bay organization and his illustrious career at Division-II Columbus State (GA) University, whose athletics Hall of Fame inducted Baker earlier this Spring.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds veteran reliever Vinnie Chulk, who discusses his recent stint with the Brewers, the surging Sounds, the keys to success at Triple-A and why in September ’03 he would have preferred NOT to hear “God Bless America” on the day he made his major league debut.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds veteran catcher Paul Phillips…personally I love the part where he tries to put into words what it’s like for a player to put on a major league uniform, whether for the first time or the 100th time.
