In a sports writing career covering half a century, Hal McCoy crowns his own Hall of Fame career with his latest book, ?The Real McCoy: My Half Century with the Cincinnati Reds.?

Veteran sports writer Hal McCoy and WVXU political reporter and avid baseball fan Howard Wilkinson join us to discuss the book, Hal McCoy'?s years covering the Reds, and what really happened to Sparky.
