| September 29, 2023 | 0 Comments

On this episode of the South Baltimore Now! podcast, Nate and Kevin talk to Patrick McArdle, author of Wire to Wire. McArdle, a longtime South Baltimore resident, wrote this memoir about the first year he moved to South Baltimore. It focuses on his immediate affection for the neighborhood and the Orioles 1997 season when the team earned the title of wire-to-wire American League Champions after spending the entire year in first place.

During the interview, the podcast crew discusses the book, reminisces about great eras of Orioles baseball, and has a fun conversation about everyone’s love for South Baltimore living.

Wire to Wire is available on Amazon and at Cheese Galore and More in Federal Hill.
