Whitlatch also talks with baseball fan Toby Brooks, a professor of kinesiology at SIU Carbondale, about his book Seasons of Change, which documents the story of the West Frankfort Cardinals' 1948 Illinois State League championship win. Brooks also was at Rent One Park in Marion to help celebrate the 60th anniversary of the historic game. To honor the occasion, the Southern Illinois Miners and their opponents, the River City Rascals, wore 1940s-era replica uniforms.
