On tonight’s pregame interview, I venture into the visiting clubhouse to interview Quad Cities River Bandits’ manager Johnny Rodriguez. Why? Because the rival skipper was on the Clinton staff in 2001, the year that produced stars Jason Bay and Grady Sizemore.

One more reason to listen to the interview.
Rodriguez’s son Sean is a three-year Major League infielder, currently playing with the Tampa Bay Rays.
