The Knee Jerks Podcast - The Ike Blessitt Hamtramck Baseball Classic

Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks!

This week we welcome back freelance journalist Dave Mesrey. Dave gives us an update on former Tiger Ike Blessitt and the upcoming Second Annual Ike Blessitt Hamtramck Baseball Classic. 

Scheduled for October 2nd at Hamtramck Stadium, the event is a daytime doubleheader at Norman "Turkey" Stearnes Field featuring four teams composed of Ike's Detroit Tigers Fantasy Camp alumni and players from the Detroit Men's Senior Baseball League. A portion of the event's proceeds will benefit the Hamtramck Parks Conservancy and the Ike Blessitt Athletic Academy.

Honorary coaches will include former Tigers and 1984 World Series champs Juan Berenguer and Barbaro Garbey, as well as former Tigers minor-league pitcher and Walled Lake native Dave Horton.
Plus, legendary Detroit techno DJ Kevin Saunderson, of the Belleville Three, is expected to lace up his spikes. The in-game announcer and DJ for sound will be the Godmother of House Music, Stacey “Hotwaxx” Hale.

In the second half of the show, Greg and Al talk Tigers and Lions, along with a little EMU Eagles football. Topics include:

Late Saturday night, Chris Creighton's Eastern Michigan Eagles knocked off Arizona State, the first time a MAC school has beaten a team from the PAC 12.

In one of the quietest and leak-free hiring processes in memory, Detroit Tigers owner Chris Ilitch tabbed 35-year old Giants general manager Scott Harris as his new President of Baseball Operations

The Tigers are rumored to be moving in the outfield fences this off season

Lions start their season 1-1, looking solid on offense and iffy on defense

Is Jared Goff the QB to build around?

The jury is still out on Dan Campbell as a head coach, but one verdict is in - he's a far more relatable and likable person than his much despised predecessor

Never forget a significant portion of the Lions' fan base bought into Matt Patricia's BS claims of Darius Slay being a locker room cancer

We also play The Birthday Game and name our respective Jerk of the Week!
