The Hosts

CB (Colin Brown), ENak (Eric Nakagawa) and Trav (Travis Whitt) are long-time friends who officiate together, at several levels, and share a love of baseball. We started the Strike 3 Podcast with an initial focus on College Baseball Umpires, but is truly intended for Baseball Umpires of all levels, Coaches and Fans. We want to share our love of the game, and our experiences, along with the experiences of our many guests with our listeners. We discuss baseball rules at all levels, along with how to improve your game, how to earn promotions, mentorship, leadership, fitness and nutrition. We talk about things that interest, entertain and amuse us, and hopefully our listeners, too.
