PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — As spring 2020 winds to a close, both NASCAR and the PGA Tour have returned to action, albeit without fans.

In this podcast from our archives, KOIN.com Managing Editor Tim Steele talks about his love for Major League Baseball and what he was going to miss with no games on opening day. (Episode originally aired March 26, 2020)
