We go off script, but we promise you it's well worth it.  In Episode 67 former Major Leaguer Kevin Millar takes one last professional at bat.  After not being drafted out of Lamar University, Millar began his professional career in 1993 with the St. Paul Saints.  After a solid season the Florida Marlins purchased his contract.  He made his Major League debut in 1998 and was purchased by the Boston Red Sox in 2003.  In 2004 he helped lead the Red Sox to an epic 0-3 comeback of the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series and the Red Sox ended an 86-year-old World Series drought by sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals.  His final professional at bat came in a six game stint with the St. Paul Saint in 2010.  That was until Saturday, June 23.  This is that moment.  The Saints invited many from the inaugural 1993 team back and they created a bobblehead of Millar and Saints owner Bill Murray.  It's from an iconic photo of the two of them sitting on a couch in that first year.  In January when Millar was asked to come back to be a part of this day he inquired about playing.  The league and the Saints opponent that night, the Winnipeg Goldeyes, agreed.  This is the pre-game interview with Millar, his one at bat and then his interview in the booth with Sean Aronson and J.W. Cox.  Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or wherever you get your podcast.  Also, be sure to rate the podcast.  Follow the podcast on Twitter at @TheVoiceBTV, and retweet it, and like us on Facebook at TheVoiceBTV, and share with your friends.
