TThis edition features excerpts of a May 2009 interview with new Hall of Famer Greg Maddux. “Mad Dog” talks about the concepts of being a good teammate and pitching while tired, the latter when he was asked about the good ol’ days when pitchers completed 20 or more games per season.

“The Diamond Gems Flashback” also features photos of the interviewees from the one-of-a-kind Leo Bauby Photo Collection, emphasizing Chicago baseball. Many photos are available to the general public directly on Ebay via seller name Soxphotos soxphotos | eBay.
