FanGraphs Audio: My 93-Year-Old Grandfather

Episode 434
The host’s 93-year-old grandfather, a guest on FanGraphs Audio when he was merely a 91-year-old and 92-year-old grandfather, is the guest on this edition of FanGraphs Audio, as well — recorded live on tape from his (i.e. that same grandfather’s) condominium in Jupiter, Florida.

Carson, You are truly blessed to have your Grandpa at his age of 93 and still going strong. He has an excellent sense of humor too.

My Grandpa made it to 92. That was back in 1970.

Hope you can do this podcast with him in good health for many more years for all to enjoy.

Carson, I imagine your Grandfather getting Italian citizenship would be largely helpful to you getting EU citizenship.

Amazing. Here in Italy we’ll love to call Grandpa a citizen, and if he ever change his mind about visiting, I will gladly show you around! :-)

My grandfather is the reason I love the game. He grew up listening to Cardinals games with Rogers Hornsby on the Radio.

Usually not a fan of Cistullis off topic podcasts.
But this one was brilliant. Cistulli and his grandfather showed a great friendship, kinship.

It was interesting and a lesson in humility.

A very honest and straight up podcast. Good job Cistulli.

These are the most delightful thing on live-on-tape internet radio. Hope there are many more to come.
