So why is the podcast called "Fadeaway"? Isn't that a basketball term?
"Fadeaway" was a baseball term for almost a century before it began to be used to describe a basketball shot. The fadeaway was a popular pitch just after the turn of the 20th century, popularized by two Hall of Fame pitchers, Christy Mathewson of the New York Giants and Rube Foster of the Philadelphia Giants. It's the same pitch that today we call the screwball. Look for more on the fadeaway in a future episode of Fadeaway.
