La Vida Baseball ¡LIVE!: Fernando Tatís Jr. or Javier Báez?



Who has the better nickname, dance moves, and pop at the plate? On this week’s episode of La Vida Baseball ¡LIVE!, Jen, Julie, and Ozzie Jr. hold a lively debate about two of the most popular Latino players in MLB: Fernando Tatís Jr. and Javier Báez.

Plus, Jennifer Mercedes, AKA La Chica Deportes, steps out of the batter’s box and onto the football field to discuss a story that broke last week revealing “race-norming” in the NFL with determining eligibility for compensation towards retired black players.

To close the show, we hear what's on Julie Alexandria's mind as it relates to the state of broadcasting in baseball and remote game coverage for television announcers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.



La Vida Baseball ¡LIVE! covers the intersection of LatinX culture and baseball, from players and fans to the game and hot-button issues to music and food. Each week, hosts Jennifer Mercedes, Julie Alexandria, and Ozzie Guillén Jr. bring you spirited conversations and in-depth analysis of the game we all love and how it impacts the world.
