Al Malafronte Hosts Break at Bat! Podcast

Break a Bat!


Hosted by Al Malafronte, this podcast celebrates two of New York City’s greatest fabrics: baseball and theatre. Born out of a passion for both Broadway musicals and triple digit fastballs, we attempt to show that baseball and theatre fans don’t have to live in such separate worlds, and maybe even break some stigmas.

Break a Bat! provides a platform for fans of either medium to hear stories and insight from their favorite performers, whether they’re from the stage, screen, or stadium, through intimate conversations.
