Fox Sports 1370 adds Hoiles as host for new talk show

March 30, 2010|By Sports Digest

Starting in April, former Orioles catcher Chris Hoiles will co-host a new afternoon sports talk radio show on Fox Sports 1370 AM. Adam Gladstone, the former director of minor league operations for Ripken Baseball and ex-director of baseball operations for the York Revolution, will join Hoiles in discussion about the Orioles and other baseball news. The show will debut Monday and will air every weekday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., featuring interviews with baseball executives, phone calls from listeners, live remote broadcasts and behind-the-scenes looks at Orioles baseball. "We are thrilled with the prospect of having [Orioles] Hall of Famer Chris Hoiles as part of the Fox 1370 lineup," said Bob Pettit, the radio station's general manager. Hoiles, a native of Bowling Green, Ohio, was a 19th-round draft pick of the Detroit Tigers' in 1986 but spent his entire 10-season major league career with the Orioles. From 1989 to 1998, he played in 894 games for the team, hitting .262 with 151 home runs and 449 RBIs.

Nationals: General manager Mike Rizzo says right-hander Stephen Strasburg will make his minor league debut for Double-A Harrisburg against Altoona on April 11. Strasburg was optioned to Harrisburg on March 20 after going 1-0 with a 2.00 ERA and allowing eight hits, walking one and striking out 12 in nine exhibition innings. He was the No. 1 overall pick in June's amateur draft and signed a record $15.1 million contract.

Dodgers: An attorney for Los Angeles owner Frank McCourt says his client is willing to pay $150,000 in monthly spousal support to his estranged wife. Sorrell Trope made the offer to Pikesville native Jamie McCourt during a hearing Monday in which she had requested $1 million a month. Her attorney, Dennis Wasser, declined to comment outside court. He had previously argued Jamie McCourt deserves the large amount because she has to pay seven mortgages and should be able to continue a comfortable lifestyle. Both husband and wife appeared in court Monday in Los Angeles. Wasser says his client's mortgages and related expenses total $568,000 a month - more than half what she is asking from her husband. Trope says Frank McCourt earns $5 million a year and shouldn't have to borrow money to support his wife's lifestyle.
