'TODD MCFARLANE SHOW' GOES LIVE ON MLB.COM
Weekly MLB Radio Internet Show Hits the 'Air' June 21

Todd McFarlane has made "the Show," finally achieving his dream of a Major League Baseball career... as the host of his own weekly radio show on MLB.com, the official Web site of Major League Baseball.

    Two decades after lacing up his cleats and taking the field for the Seattle Mariner's minor league system, Todd will take to the Internet radio airwaves for the Todd McFarlane Show, scheduled to air live every Friday at 3 p.m. Eastern/noon Pacific. He will be joined by MLB Radio's Seth Everett, who returns for his second season as a host on the network.

    Todd and Seth will talk about a variety of baseball and general sports topics, as well as interview current and former Major League players, celebrities who like baseball, and other guests from the world of professional sports and entertainment. Additionally, listeners can contact the show directly via e-mail and AOL Instant Messaging to ask the hosts and guests questions.

    The idea for the show was spawned from a May 8 interview Todd did on MLB Radio. During the 40-minute interview (which you can listen to by clicking http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/radio/mlb_radio_archive.jsp?month=05&year=2002) and scrolling down to May 8's Curveballs, Change-ups and Sliders link), Todd joined Billy Sample and Al Oliver to talk about the new McFarlane's Sports Picks: Baseball action figures and Mark McGwire home run baseballs. However, Todd, the hosts and listeners really got into talking about the American League's designated hitter rule. It was during the DH discussion that Todd, who is highly knowledgeable about baseball and sports in general, was "discovered" by the show's producers.

    "I liked finally having the chance to talk about sports in-depth, where I'm not limited to five-minute snippets over how much I've spent on home run baseballs," Todd said. "I was able to talk baseball with guys who understand it and are not just after pat answers to the same questions, and that's what I want to continue doing here."

    During the season, show co-host Everett can also be heard live weekdays from 4 to 7 p.m. ET on Baseball's Ultimate Pregame Show. He also does play-by-play for such events as the All-Star Game, spring training and Hall of Fame Game. Before coming to MLB Radio, Everett covered baseball on all levels, ranging from the Class A NY-Penn League to the Colorado Rockies and the Seattle Mariners.

    "The best part of MLB Radio is the idea that we can expand our knowledge of baseball to fans of different aspects of entertainment," said Everett. "To cross-promote both the comic book/superhero world with the world of baseball is something fans should enjoy. I've followed Todd's career for many years and have great expectations for what he can bring to the show."
