#DadsWeek with Mark McGwire

Cardinals Hall of Famer and former MLB Home Run King Mark McGwire joins the show to talk about raising his sons, why watching your kids compete is always harder than playing yourself, teaching his kids to trust their ability and do their best, making the decision to walk away from MLB to coach and spend time with his family, how special 61 was and its connection to his father, getting to involve his son Matthew in that Summer of ’98, the man who shaped him into who he is, incredible stories of resilience and fatherhood about Mark’s dad and how enjoyable watching the current crop of Cardinals can be.
