Chasing the Butterfly of Blue Run with Mike Montgomery and Tim Sparapani (Bourbon Pursuit #333)

We talk about working with Jim Rutledge, moving from high aged to younger whiskeys, and how they are meeting a new demand in the market.

Ex-MLB pitcher Mike Montgomery throws rosin bag, hits ump in KBO game

Former major league pitcher Mike Montgomery hit an umpire with a rosin bag and had to be restrained by teammates after being ejected from a KBO game on Friday. Montgomery, who pitches for the Samsung Lions, was ejected after being warned by umpires about the league's 12-second pitch rule. As he was being guided toward the dugout, he charged toward the umpire as he was being restrained by teammates. He then fired the rosin bag at the back of the umpire, who was talking to the Lions manager.
