- Sullivan is a multi-award winning 39-year veteran of The Chicago Tribune who covers both the White Sox and the Cubs. Freedman began his professional career as a sportscaster in Detroit and later oversaw news and major sports coverage for the broadcast division of United Press International and CBS Radio Network. .
- The Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) has ruled the press boxes of Major League ballparks since 1908, the same year the National Press Club was founded. Join us from the first pitch to the last out, as the presidents of these two venerable organizations get together to "talk baseball" this most unusual of seasons.
