Interview with manager of The Ball Barn Entertainment Facility in Festus, Missouri

 The Freak Show - Sports Stalkers team is proud to bring you a special interview with Adam Gliebe of The Ball Barn batting cage and entertainment center in Festus, Missouri. I get to sit down for about 20 minutes of Adam’s time while inside the brand new facility to discuss his background as a baseball player growing up and how that translates into managing a baseball/softball training facility. The Ball Barn opened up a little over two weeks ago and I actually heard about it while out having breakfast at Denny’s of all places. Shortly thereafter I reached out to Adam to get more information on their new business in our community and that led directly to this interview. During the interview we sit in the office and you can hear children playing in one of the open cages and the sounds of softball batting practice in another. Adam graciously answers numerous questions ranging from: How the facility genesis was conceived, plans for events, marketing to the surrounding community, branding and much more. So plug in, give us a listen and let us know what you thought of the interview!

Peace.

Jeremy and Freak recorded live! We scare up some podcast talk for our 36th show for the viewer-listeners.

Two weeks have passed since our last show but the Sports Stalkers team is determined to cash you up ousside! Just kidding. We talk about the NHL shocking St Louis Blues as they roll on, getting the most out of their stars and some kids who weren’t supposed to even be in the NHL yet! From there we cover the slow pitch softball-like games that are the World Series. Plus Cardinals coaching changes…except the moves that should have been made. A little NFL, some college football, no soccer, no golf, no NBA but a little WWE and MMA talk! And the world is put right by finishing the show with some Ozzie Smith Trivia for Jeremy’s brain!

Happy Halloween to all of our listeners and their families!

The return of Jeremy and Freak! We scare up some podcast talk for our 35th show for the viewer-listeners.

Finally the stars align (and our softball schedules) so we can sit down in studio to discuss the happenings for the last almost four weeks. We acknowledge the tragedy in Vegas, Aaron Rodgers injury, fantasy football drudgery, the Cleveland Indians post season implosion, local softball, the Freak’s successful post-softball proposal of marriage (not to Jeremy) and trivia in the front, sports stalk at the back!

The Blues are back on ice and a special birthday shout out to Corey Carriker!

Jeremy and Freak put on the 'gloves' for our 34th show for the viewer-listeners.

After a two week break, the guys are ready to shake things up and talk about softball and rubbing elbows with the literal Major Players of our sport. After a rundown of our local boys ADL and their run down in Florida at USSSA Worlds, we applaud the Cleveland Indians and shrug our shoulders at the St Louis Cardinals. The NHL hockey season is right around the corner and we are ready to figuratively bleed some Blue. Jeremy gets into his fighter's stance to try to knockout some sports trivia!
