The 49’s Fastball Story – Savor The Spirit of Baseball

The spirit of baseball is the spirit of spring and summer time.  That’s why it is known as America’s favorite pastime.  While the presentation of the game has changed over the years, the magic is still there.

49’s Fastball was developed for baseball fans both young and old all written and narrated by Larry Dierker, former MLB pitcher, manager, and commentator. Because of his career, Larry provides a unique perspective of the game as he shares these amazing stories. Many baseball websites are full of stats, figures, schedules and player information, and that’s a good thing. However, 49’s Fastball endeavors to connect with fans who want and are looking for something more intriguing with a special twist of nostalgia.

From the first blossoms of spring until the changing colors of fall, baseball is a constant companion.  I hope you will find this spirit, this sense that diamonds are forever with you as you take time and enjoy these podcasts, blogs, books and other rich daily content that are filled with unique and fun stories about the game, players, fans, and some quite unusual events.
