The duo known for their witty sports commentary on 790AM WKRD are heading to Slugger Field to host a live broadcast of The Afternoon Underdogs on April 19.
Tony Vanetti and Dave Jennings will take a â€œmini vacationâ€ to the ballpark to enjoy dollar beer night, baseball and the â€œBats experience,â€ as Tony calls it.
â€œYou recommend (a Bats game) as at least the top three things to do in Louisville,â€ Tony said. â€œItâ€™s not just about baseball itâ€™s about the entire experience that your family and your friends can have. If you look at the success of downtown Louisville you can point to Louisville Slugger being built.â€
The Voice-Tribune caught up with Tony and Dave for a quick look at the upcoming baseball season and what they love most about Louisvilleâ€™s downtown gem, Slugger Field.
What is your favorite food served at Slugger Field?
Tony: Fried baloney sandwiches.
Dave: Probably those grilled sausages and peppers and onions.
What are the best nights to watch a Bats game?
Tony: Thursday is certainly a great night but Friday and Saturday usually have fireworks that follow the show.
Dave: Definitely, Thursday for dollar beer night.
What would be your walk up song (aka a theme song) if you played for The Bats?
Tony: AC/DCâ€™s â€œThunderstruck.â€
Dave: Maybe the theme from â€œSanford and Son.â€
What position would you play if you were on The Bats roster?
Tony: I wanna be the pitcher. Are you kidding me? If Iâ€™m going to play baseball … I want the center of attention.
Dave: Iâ€™d be pitcher.
Which of the two of you would be most likely to make it on the Reds roster?
Tony: Daveâ€™s probably a better pitcher, so Iâ€™ll give him that one.
Dave: Me because Iâ€™d be a better pitcher.
