You may remember the name John Sadak from the annals of Wayniac Nation. Mr. Sadak, the voice of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the New York Yankees Triple-A squad, was the first interview in my new writing career (which you can check out right here if you’d like). Since then, I have actually met John in person at a game and got to talk some shop, and this past week, I was fortunate enough to have him answer some questions about the future of Yankees baseball.
Unlike last year, where the RailRiders — and Yankees themselves — were struggling, the RailRiders — and the Yankees themselves! — are atop their division. John has had the opportunity to watch top Yankees prospects like Aaron Judge, Luis Severino, and Greg Bird develop into full fledged superstars. The Yankees farm system went from the bottom third in baseball to a top ten organization. Who better to ask about the exciting turnaround than the man who watches and talks RailRiders baseball every day of the season?
