Award-winning director for ESPN's "30 for 30" docuseries, Andy Billman, joins the show to discuss his new film "War on the Diamond." The documentary tells the story of Ray Chapman - the only MLB player killed by a pitch - and the 100-year rivalry between the Yankees and Indians. Andy discusses his inspiration for the film; great moments in the rivalry's history; untold stories about the man that killed Chapman, and how the MLB would have changed if George Steinbrenner had bought the Indians. He also talks about the most significant trade in Indians history and his thoughts on the White Sox collapse from a Clevelander's perspective.
