Brian's attention turns from football to baseball this week as he gets into the spring training mindset with Fox Sports analyst and Hall of Fame pitcher, John Smoltz. A veteran of over 20 years in professional baseball, "Smoltzy" takes us behind the scenes of his storied career from star high school athlete and Detroit Tigers prospect, to playoff near-misses and eventual World Series redemption as part of the dominant Atlanta Braves starting rotation alongside Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux, and how overcoming injuries forced him to relearn the game from the bullpen where he excelled as the Braves' closer. Plus, John details why you should never talk trash to Tiger Woods and shares his early thoughts on the upcoming 2024 baseball season.
