TCNW 728: Opie’s Baseball is a Fumble

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:33:51

I know many of you have been missing roving reporter Randy Turner so I thought I’d talk about just some of what he has going one. The focus this week being “The Andy Griffith Show Ambassadors Magazine” published by Randy with stories by not only him but out fellow Mayberry fans. It begain back in 2020 and comes out quarterly in a 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 “fanzine” format. If you’re looking for a physical bit of Mayberry to hold in your hands, consider subscribing.

To give you a taste of what you are missing in the Ambassadors Magazine, we’re going to cover an article from the Fall 2020 edition called “Fumble Ball in Mayberry.” No, it’s not about a drill done at football practice. It’s about a form of baseball/softball played with a balled called a “fumble ball” and there’s a connection to Mayberry. Dick Villard joins Randy in the creation of this bit of Mayberry trivia you likely have never heard.

We’ll play some fun Mayberry trivia following the fumble so stick around for all the fun.
