We welcomed a special guest to the podcast today: Myron "Mynie" Clayton.
"Mynie" Clayton is better known around the Daily News sports department as "Grandpa." The life-long sports fan, and grandfather of Daily News online sports editor Andy Clayton, is well known in the newsroom for calling the office on a regular basis to quiz his grandson about all the things going on in the sports world.
With the Rangers and Lightning doing battle in an epic Eastern Conference Final, and the Rays being the surprise team in the AL East, we figured now was the perfect time to introduce our podcast audience to our favorite resident of Tampa.
Along with a little hockey talk, we talked to Grandpa (who will be 94 on June 6) about his lifelong love affair with baseball.
How did "Mynie" end up performing at the grand opening of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown? What about that time he worked on a gun for Yankee great Catfish Hunter while working as a custom gunsmith for Remington Arms?
These stories and much more with Grandpa.
