Before the Rebels take on Florida this weekend, we decided to have college baseball royalty on the podcast, no big deal. Former LSU, Baltimore Orioles, and Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Ben McDonald joins us in studio to chat about all things college baseball, Mike Bianco, and of course the Rebels.

We chat with him about his playing days at the college and pro level, winning the Golden Spikes Award, pitching against Frank Thomas, Jim Thome, and Cecil Fielder, and what it was like to play with Rebel head coach Mike Bianco.
