On the first Fish Bites Podcast episode of 2019, we are privileged to be joined by Jeff Conine. The two-time World Series champion takes us through his journey to the big leagues and his separate stints with the Marlins, with some amazing stories in between.

Learn about the time Bo Jackson—the best athlete of his generation—challenged Conine to a racquetball match and find out why “Mr. Marlin” would’ve preferred to go to the Rockies in the 1992 MLB expansion draft. He also explains the “rollercoaster” experience of raising his son Griffin to be a professional baseball player (drafted by the Blue Jays in 2018).
