Podcast Episode 50: Kevin Cowherd joins us to talk about his new book, ‘When the Crowd Didn’t Roar’

Welcome to Episode 50 of the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast with site owner Jake McDonnell, editor Nolan McGraw, and author Ian Schultz.

We haven’t quite hit our one-year podcast anniversary but Episode 50 is still a pretty big milestone and there was no shortage of topics for this week’s show.

We kicked things off with a recap of the last week of Orioles baseball (7:00). John Means and Dylan Bundy gave the O’s some great outings recently and Gabriel Ynoa has emerged as a go-to option out of the bullpen. We discussed the potential future for Ynoa and as always we give you our players and stinkers of the week (16:08).

After talking about the latest Orioles news & notes, we welcomed on former Baltimore Sun sports columnist Kevin Cowherd to talk about his new book, When The Crowd Didn’t Roar that highlights the only Major League Baseball game to be played in an empty stadium (26:50). It was just four years ago when that infamous game took place in Baltimore after riots broke out in downtown area. We took the time to look back on this brief time period and discussed the effects it has had on attendance at Orioles games over the past four years (46:20).

Our Ravens segment is relatively short this week but there were some rookie minicamp press conference quotes from the newest Ravens as well as coach Harbaugh that we wanted to talk about (1:05:50).

Episode 50 concludes with a few funny fan texts (1:16:10) and then the weekly numbers segment (1:22:07). This week we try to guess the most notable players in Baltimore sports history to wear the number 50.
