Episode 2: Ralph Nelson — Rocket City Trash Pandas owner on his career in baseball and beyond

Dale Jackson is joined by Ralph Nelson, managing partner and CEO of the Rocket City Trash Pandas to find out how he came to own Alabama’s newest minor league baseball team and the backstory behind the craziest team name in sports.

Ralph describes his 25 years working in major league baseball – from his start as an intern to putting a championship team together. He explains why there was an extra umpire on the field for a special game after 9/11 and what he told George W. Bush that the former president wasn’t allowed to do.
