Sportsnation, the popular morning sports show on ESPN+ didn’t realize it, but they were about to get an exclusive. The Stangel brothers had just signed with their 5th baseball team, when a producer from the Worldwide Leader In Sports reached out for a booking.
Eric and Justin quickly accepted and went to work to prepare. When they taped the segment with Ashley Brewer, Christine Williamson and Treavor Scales, the Stangels told the tale of where this idea began, and took us through signing one day deals with the Portland Pickles, Cleburne Railroaders, Lake Erie Crushers, St. Paul Saints and Akron RubberDucks.
Then the bombshell. No one realized at the time, but they Stangels were about to reveal team #6. Spoiler below the clip.
That’s right, the Carolina Disco Turkeys. A perfect fit. The actual signing will be in the next few weeks, but it’s a formality at this point. The world now knows.
