The plan was for Marty to sit down with me a couple of hours before the first pitch of last night’s Brewers-Giants game. However, forces out of Marty’s control (the Bay Bridge was closed down to one lane), he was not able to get to the park until game time. Instead of canceling or postponing the interview, Marty graciously invited me up to the dining hall to conduct the interview, certainly a way to kill two birds with one stone. We talked for about 20 minutes, discussing his career transition, his first game at Ebbets Field, the BioGenesis scandal, and the current state of the Giants.
It was a true pleasure to talk to this baseball oracle, and I hope to do so again.
