134: Cheating in Baseball and Innovation in Sports with Dan Levitt

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Welcome to one of the most exciting times in sports — the baseball postseason is upon us! And that means it’s the perfect time to talk about innovation in baseball and how the sport has evolved, particularly from a breaking-the-rules perspective.

Dan Levitt is an award-winning researcher and board member of the Society for American Baseball Researchers. In short, he knows his baseball history. Alongside Mark Armour, he’s the co-author of multiple books and articles. Their recent collaboration, Intentional Balk: Baseball's Thin Line Between Innovation and Cheating, has a ton of cool stories about…well, the thin line between being cunning and being a straight-up cheater.
