Dave Swanson, the K-Zone producer for ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, joined me to talk about his role in ESPN TV production and his long career as both a professional pitcher and coach.
In this episode of Dear Baseball Gods, Dave shared stories of players and coaches from his minor league days, his time as a Cleveland Indians minor league rehab pitching coordinator, and his decade+ of experience with ESPN. You’ll hear how he helps Alex Rodriguez and Jessica Mendoza prep for their broadcast, his views on pitcher arm path and his assessment of Joe Kelly, and much more. GREAT talk about tons of different topics in baseball.

I’m a former pro pitcher who overcame Tommy John surgery twice, earning All-Star selections after both of them. I own Warbird Training Academy in Normal, Illinois and have dedicated my life to helping young ballplayers stay healthy, avoid my mistakes and increase their baseball IQ faster than they could on their own.
