Episode 157: Celebrating Jimmy Rattlesnake

November 19, 2021

In an era where fans packed ballparks by the thousands to watch games and tournaments, Jimmy Rattlesnake was a headliner. His reputation was second-to-none, and his accomplishments have been recognized in many ways. There is no higher honour in this country than to be named to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, and earlier this week, the pride of the Ermineskin Cree Nation took his place in the hall as part of the Class of 2021. We had the honour and opportunity to talk about the induction with Jimmy's daughter, Phyllis, and grandson, Oren. We're also joined by ADS co-founder Ian Wilson, who wrote an in-depth story about Rattlesnake's on-field accomplishments.
