Jimmie Lee Solomon on FOX Sports
Jimmie Lee Solomon was back on FOX Sports Radio November 2nd in the morning at 6-9am ET. Seth Everett’s Show was heard across the USA on FOX Affiliates as well as I Heart Radio. Guests included Jimmie Lee Solomon, John McMullen talking NFL, and Brian Geltzeiler. Jimmie Lee spoke on a few topics, including last nights World Series win, expensive contracts for players and the state of some organizations, specifically the A’s and Tampa Rays.
As a long-time friend of Jimmie Lee, Seth wanted to get more insight from Solomon on current issues in the sports industry. One question was about gun possession by national sports athletes. They then discussed a topic so near to both their hearts – the low percentage of African American players in baseball and what should be done to change that in the future. Seth is hoping to have Solomon be a more frequent contributor to his show, so stay tuned for more.
